Blue & White Transferware Tablescape


                                                                        Hello everyone,
                               I hope your week is going well. Not that I am complaining but we did
                              wake up to yet another coat of fresh snow over night. With no wind to
                             blow it around, the trees are laden with lots of snow(pretty) but sadly
                             so is our roof and balcony so I am afraid that is more shoveling unless
                             we get a good wind tonight.
                             Anyway, indoors all is cozy and warm and for a change I am using
                            my blue and white transferware dishes in our kitchen/dining room.

                       As usual, I am using a mix of different patterns ~ some of you may recognize my
                      Spode teacups.
                                            Love this old pitcher with the sweet little roses.

                                Love this soup tureen from an auction sale several years ago with a
                                platter from a yard sale under it.

                                   Some of the china is new like this Skye McGhie Rhapsody plate and
                                  tea cup.

                                               Some are old like this transferware plate.

                                       The tea pot is also Skye McGhie but Rose Brocade.
                                     I love this little teapot with the tea cup underneath..I found this at a
                                    little shop in Mahone Bay a few years ago.I also have one in red and
                                   white. I know.......I am a tea pot addict(I won't mention a dish addict)!
                                       My  treasure from the 70 mile yard sale 2 years ago.

                                           The pitcher was another 70 mile yard sale treasure.

              So, I am all set for my company tomorrow ~ hope they like blue and
                        white as much as I do!

                       I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

and My Romantic Home for Show & Tell

                                           Thank you so much for visiting!


In the Bleak Mid Winter


                                                                    Hello everyone!
                                     Another snow day here as we got over 30cm of snow overnight
                                    last night,closing schools and some work places.
                                 I enjoy looking out onto our porch and seeing my tablescape
                                 so I am leaving it there for awhile.
                                      My good husband out shoveling our walk off again!
                                   You can see even our car got a good cover of snow.

                                                          It will soon be a tunnel up to our door.

                                       A good thing it is cozy and warm inside our home.
                       It has been quite a winter here so far and I am hoping we are more
                                 then midway through this one but apparently we have more snow on
                                the way tonight!
                                    However, with the trees all laden with fresh white snow it is
                                   definitely  a winter wonderland out there!

                                                                     Hope you stay warm and cozy!
