Red Calico

 I am posting my red calico teapot for pink Saturday over at How Sweet The Sound , Beverly always has such a fun following . My table is bit of a mess but it always is, no need to pretend

I also got my tomato spoons cleaned which someone said don't post a picture of them, we have seen them tarnished already LOL Oh well 

Clean Tomato spoons and I found another one not pictured 

Since I was in the mood ( not really) for cleaning silver I got all my Mother of Pearl handled flatware out and cleaned it also.

Well today my weather has improved greatly however tomorrow more freezing rain and snow possibly.

I have enjoyed staying in during this bad weather I have gotten a few things done around my house.

Hope you all are doing just fine wherever you are

  1. I love your photos!! You have such pretty things and I thank you for sharing them with us. So much eye candy!!

  2. I am truly envious of your red calico. I have only blue and now that I have moved, blue goes with nothing in my new home, whereas the red one would go with everything, alas. Thanks for sharing. Lovely, truly.

  3. I love the way you display
    My favorite color is red

  4. I love the flatware, the spoons, and the teapot! Seeing your pretty things is a delight! Take care.
    Blessings, Linda

  5. Pretty teapot. Have always loved red and blue transferware. Janice

  6. I am swooning over you red Calico teapot! I don't know why, but I am addicted to pretty teapots! I have some of them displayed above my kitchen cabinets. Folks always comment on them when they come in. Probably some may think I'm bonkers that I have so many but I just love them so much. There are worse things I could be collecting, right? Your spoons and pearl handled flatware are gorgeous! You have such beautiful treasures! Thank you for sharing them with us.

  7. That calico is so pretty. And I love your spoons, as well. They are so very pretty!

  8. Hi Janice, the red calico teapot looks so fun with the checked tablecloth. Your silver looks nice all polished up too! The mother of pearl handles are wonderful! Thanks for sharing! xoxo

  12. Dearest Janice,
    How glad I am to find you here again!
    After so much time, I can write a comment to an amzing post of yours, those posts I’ve never forgotten!
    I’ve been away from the web since the reseraches and the drafting of the history essay I wrote for an Italian publisher about the Habsburgs took up all the time I had.
    But I’ve finally come back.
    Sending blessings on your weekend

  13. I just had to stop over...for 2 reasons. left a nice comment on my blog:) and 2...the name of your blog caught my attention!!! I have often wondered what those spoons were for. Never thought about them being TOMATO SPOONS! I've never heard of that but the shape makes sense:) I learn so much reading blogs:)

  14. Thanks for visiting Buttercupland. I like all of your collections, but I'm especially taken with your dishes. Love the red and white.

  15. You have a lovely blog, Janice. As a Brit, transplanted in Pennsylvania, I find your collections enchanting. I enjoyed browsing your Etsy shop too. P.x

  16. Love you red and white calico teapot. It is so pretty. Nice that you cleaned your spoons and you did a good job on them. Going over to look at your shop now.
