Collecting Brown Transfer Ware

Hello everyone!  I hope you are having a good November!  Lots of my friends out in blog land collect transfer ware and after seeing yours I fell in love with the comfy and homey feel transfer ware gives me.   I have been buying bits and pieces at thrift stores, but never a whole set of brown transfer ware at one time.  A few weeks ago we went to my grandson's hockey game about two hours north of us.  We were early  and  found  a thrift store with this beautiful set of dishes!

I decided to do a autumn tablescape at our log cottage  using this china and some of my other transfer ware pieces.  So pretty for fall!

I have a set of five plus of this pattern.  It is made my Johnson Bro's and the pattern name is Windsor Ware, made in England.  I think I was lucky to get the set for sixty dollars!

I'm going to love drinking tea from this cup!

I would love to find a teapot to match, but for now I'm using my thrift store Chantilly teapot by T. Furnival & Sons.

I also found the large soup tureen  at a thrift shop for only twenty dollars, including a couple of smaller tureens without lids with small hair line cracks.  They are marked Yosemite by T & R Boote, England.

I love the ladle!

The large pitcher is marked Noir E + Blanc, from TJ Maxx.

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you all have a wonderful week!  We are expecting ten to twelve inches  of snow tomorrow!  I am not ready for that!

I will be joining the following lovely parties:  Tea Time Tuesday,  Friends Sharing Tea, A Return to Loveliness, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Teacup Tuesday,  and Share Your Cup Thursday.

A Simple Cup Of Tea

Welcome to just a simple cup of tea that is so comforting on a cold November day!

I am at the farm cottage enjoying tea time with a couple of good books.

My sister  gave me this Royal Kingston teacup.  I love the pretty soft colors that blend with the cozy quilt on the sofa.

Mrs. Timothy Bear has joined me at tea time.

I haven't decorated much for autumn this year, but I did put out a few pumpkins around the cottage!


Thank you so much for visiting and have a wonderful week!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, Teacup Tuesday, and Tuesday Cuppa Tea.
