Brown & White Transferware Cupboard


                                                                             Hello everyone,

                                                        We are having some lovely weather this
                                                        week with sunshine and a hint of spring
                                                        in the air.......perfect for long walks outdoors.
                                                        I have been in painting mode lately and eager
                                                       to do my spring cleaning before garden season.

So,one of yesterdays projects  was
to remove the Friendly Village  dishes
that I enjoy in winter from the cupboard in 
the cupboard in the library.
I wanted to give the cupboard a fresh coat
of paint going with a creamy white paint
this time. 

I have been noticing that my collection of
brown & white transferware has grown  ...
not sure how that happened.Ha!Ha!
Anyway, I thought another cupboard
was needed to display it all.

      As always, I have a mix of new & old.

A birthday gift from a friend
a few years ago.

                                                                My thrift shop find.

                                                                I love all the different
                                                                scenes depicted on
                                                                English transferware.

                                                             Most of my collection was bought
                                                             locally but a few like the soup tureen
                                                              above came from antique malls in Maine.

                                                      I have been asked the name of this
                                                      tea set a few times~ it is Brown Botanical
                                                      by Skye McGhie. It is a newer and I think
                                                      I have seen it on ebay.

I will probably do a little more
fluffing with the display but
my next project is repainting
my other old cupboard full
of more brown & white transferware.

Well, thanks for stopping by and I
have another paint brush if you 
would like to hang around!

Take care,
