Made in England

I know I am cleaning out my stashes of things that I have way to much of BUT the girl next to me at the flea market  had these brown and white transfer ware dishes a 4 place setting made in England and had staffordshire on them only $7.50 she had sold things all day  long and about 2pm it slowed down so I looked what she had on her tables and I said to myself OMG only $7.50 I picked them up and ran over to my tables to hide them LOL.( so no one else would buy them )

I thought they would look so good with the brown and white odds and ends I already have like  my brown transferware  turkey plates etc.

She said no don't pay for them we will trade things OK that worked for me. She is the one wanting to travel Europe for a month she teaches art in Jefferson City Missouri

Then the girl on the other side of me left about that time because she had sold all her red wing pottery and had to go ride her horses she said. She brought the most amazing beautiful old yellow crock bowls with blue rings around the top she had ever size from I bet 1/2 cup to 3 gal I wanted them all

She said I drove all over the states collecting these when we built out ranch and did my kitchen in all these yellow crocks. I told her to pack them away for a while then when she sees them it will be new all over. I have started doing that on some things .

I was cleaning off my patio picking up tree branches and cut back my ivy around my patio so any way that is why I took my dishes out side . It was a beautiful morning yesterday and I had my coffee out there then Emma my neighbor came over to chat. She is helping to encourage me to eat healthy.  can do that  THEN I want a piece of pie or some home made cookie or what about a slice of home made pound cake? That is what she is on to me about LOL

                   love the inside of these cups

then i put an old lace tablecloth on my patio table my brown and white calico stafforshire pitcher looks good with the new dishes I think

       This is the plate the yellow crock bowl girl gave me  Johnston Bros          
                         Outside on the patio, my flower beds are not blooming yet

This would have been a better  picture if I had removed my plastic cup
I don't know the name of this flower however it is blooming so picked some
                          Curtains in my Tree (French lace)
                   A friend brought me these to plant a couple years ago

    And so is red wine,
    But I prefer claret instead!”

    The name of your plant is "Hyacinth". They have a very sweet, most times strong fragrance if you use alot in one place.
    Thanks for sharing.
