My Cupboard of Brown & White Transferware

                                  It was a cold but sunny winter day here
                                  and I am doing some spring cleaning. It  be
                                  a bit early but when spring arrives I want to
             able to get out to the garden. 

       So as I was dusting I thought maybe
you would enjoy a peek inside this
         old cupboard full of brown transferware.

                   This cupboard is in our living room,

                                                         Love this old platter and soup tureen.

                                                              So, after all that cleaning it
                                                              is time for a tea break.
                                                          And, I wanted to show off my new
                                                          brown and white transferware teapot.

                                                        Romantic England ~ Royal Stratfordshire
                                                         by Meakin. Even though I had quite a few
                                                        different pieces I had never run across a
                                                        teapot before so I couldn't leave it behind.
                                                                   Mix and match.

                                             I hear there is more snow coming tomorrow.....at
                                                       this rate I have lots of time for my spring cleaning
                                                      as it may be June before it all melts!!! Oh,well at
                                                      least it is warm and sunny indoors.

                                                      I am joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage
                                                      For Tea Time Tuesday and Bernideen at
                                                      Bernideen's Tea Time Blog for Tea with

Warm and sunny indoors may be all that matters this time of year! I just found a piece of Clarice Cliff's "Autumn" in brown. I love brown transferware!

Carolyn, thank you for sharing your brown and white. I'm a fan and always enjoy seeing collections.
Stay warm!

Margie said...

Loving all your pretty brown transferware. Good strategy to do the spring cleaning now so you can enjoy the warmer weather later!

You have a lovely collection of brown and white, Carolyn. Nice teapot too. I have the same cup and saucer as the one sitting on top. I got some of my kitchen cabinets cleaned and hope to get to the rest shortly. It's a job to have done early that way we have more time for other things. Thanks for joining me for tea and stay cozy.

Swoonnnn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I was to start collecting another set of transferware colors, it certainly would be brown and white! What a gorgeous collection and your hutch looks amazing!

Carrie said...

Lovely cabinet and what a terrific collection of brown transferware. I really like the doilies hanging down from each shelf too.

Oh yes I would enjoy a peek into that cupboard! Gives me chills and fever to look at it. I love the teacup with the barn. All so pretty and heart warming. We got a foot of snow over two days and by the third it was all gone, but then we will still have desert and you will have lush garden joys to come!

I love your brown transferrer collection Carolyn!
We have chosen this colour for our everyday dishes in Arizona and I love them!
Have a great week!

Bernideen said...

All your transferware is so lovely. I don't know which are my favorite but I think your red and also the green. This cupboard display is a feast for the eyes! Also, glad the calendar arrived and hope it brings some joyful memories of your Mom!

I love this so much!! I love that the brown is kind of different than other colors...and I'm just an earth-tone Gal anyway. ;)

Praying for some melting for you soon! We had that last year down here in northern WI - no Spring just melted and it was already summer!! We've been much better this year and they're predicting an early Spring. Here's hoping and I'll try to will some melting sun your way.

I am swooning over your amazing collection of brown transferware Carolyn. I can't imagine how many pieces you must own. All uniquely beautiful indeed and the new pieces are just as pretty.

It must be a joy to look at them everyday.

Stay warm and cozy. We hard another snow storm today. I think I am over winter days already.
