Transferware & Willow

Another Random Post..

I love to collect transferware. It comes in a few different colors. Transfer printing was originally produced in single-color items only, with the favorite hues in blue, red, black, brown, purple and green. Brown tended to be rather a common and inexpensive color, while blue was the most sought after and expensive color.

 Brown Transferware is great to add with White Ironstone for the winter..
I love it all!!




ahh.. so pretty

Pussy Willow is also great in the winter.. love the different textures..


Happy Thursday!
