Blue & White Transferware Tablescape

Hello Everyone,
    It was a sunny but cold day here today but with February almost over, spring must be just around the corner! Well not quite- we did get about 15cm. of sparkly white snow yesterday and I am noticing that it is starting to accumulate. 
   Anyway, as many of you know I love transferware and although I have more red and white then any other color,I thought I would use my blue and white transferware today.

As usual I have a mix and match set.
I love soup tureens!
My husband gave me this teapot for my birthday a few years ago along with the creamer and sugar bowl.
I enjoy my tulip bouquets while waiting for our own to bloom.
My daughter had several of these teacups and passed them on to me.

I found 6 of these plates at a thrift shop.
These pretty plates came from Homesense which is the same as Home Goods in the U.S.

In the last couple of weeks I found a couple of lovely red and white transferware pieces that I am happy to have so I will have to show you those treasures soon.

Our bedroom is getting a makeover and when it is done I will also share those photos.However,it will be a week or so before it is done.
   I hear that March is coming in like a lamb tomorrow so I guess that means out like a lion!

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

The Nosey Goose .... inspiration

I have to share with you a sweet little shop near where I live.

I've driven by this shop 100 times thinking...I have to go in there.
I finally did while shopping for a baby girls room.

I asked the sweet owner if I could feature her store in a post on my blog.
She kindly said yes. So I am going to show you some inspiring photos taken on my visit there.

The covered porch light fixture.

I love a place that makes me want to go home and redecorate  my whole house...

More Beauty!

Hello everyone,
      Today, I have  more beauty to share with you as a follow up from my last post. As, I mentioned in my last post a reader of my blog sent me some beautiful photos of her home and all the beautiful treasures she has collected over the years and I have been given permission to share them with you.

I love the tea set above-the color is so pretty..
Lots of pretty things to see here-the doll and cradle really caught my eye! This is such a pretty bedroom.
Love this feminine chair!

Can't help but love this too!
Beyond beautiful!
Delicate and pretty!
Another beautiful antique dress.Did all the ladies have such a tiny waistline back then???
Adorable hats and a lovely glass cabinet full of more treasures.
A pretty teapot with a spout strainer-I have never seen one of those before.

Antique lace

This is just the beginning of the most beautiful collection of china I have ever seen. I will share the rest of it at a later date. I have so loved seeing  all the beautiful china,lace etc. and I hope you have too! Thanks once again to my friend for sharing with us!

As March is getting closer I am  in the mood for spring cleaning and getting some little projects done so  my camera/computer time has been slashed dramatically! I hope you will be patient with me as I may be a little more sporadic for awhile.

Thank you for visiting,
