Tea

I think most of us love a cup of hot tea and I just keep buying different boxes of teas to try. Guess that's why I  am buying different tea pots also?
I posted a picture of my red and white transferware newest teapot however not setting with a mismatch tea cup which I found 6 of once at a resale shop here in town.






































I have maybe 4 cups and saucers in my Mason set that matches the creamer in the pictures. These little cups are marked England on the bottom I think any china that comes from england is wonderful,like my Burleigh staffordshire set in blue calico




While I was in Jefferson City Monday I stopped at a couple shops and found these gorgeous red and white transferware soup bowls there was 11 all together and priced for all 11 which came out to about $4.50 each so I had to have them. When I first started collecting transferware these were always were always priced $22.50 each up to $50 each! so I was well pleased to find them.




You can tell I haven't changed my table covering since New Years. I will today or maybe tomorrow.

When do we get enough dishes where they don't keep attracting our attention ?

I need to get ready for my job, I finally got my hours changed to 6 hours a day and I can tell I have lot more time to play with dishes LOL

Stay warm it's -8 below here this morning which makes it hard to walk very far without feeling it





I joined in these parties

  1. I love red transferware and your collection is beautiful. You were lucky to find them at such low price. I'm preparing a Rosary tea for January post and I used to start the year my beloved tea china for 12 in red transferware.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  4. That is the hardest thing for me to let go of---dishes. Why is that?!?!!! I can purge and let go of so many things but I keep my dishes.

  10. What a great find! I found 8 bowls a while ago and was thrilled as well. There were four of two different patterns. It doesn't bother me because I love mixing patterns!

  14. I love the red transfer ware pieces that you have. So old fashioned and just cozy to me. The Brits probably wouldn't like me to call them cozy! I have found a few pieces that I have sold. I just don't have room to start collecting dishes!
