Last month when Scott's Antique Market was in town, I purchased my first pieces of green transfer ware. There was a lady there who had a nice variety of single patterns and pieces in a variety of colors and at great prices.
Who can resist that combination? Not me ~ that's for sure.
The first piece I found is this delicate and lacy salad plate from the Ferndale pattern.
I fell in love with this sweet pattern immediately.
The other piece I picked up was a tea cup and saucer from
Enoch Wedgewood and the pattern is called "Kent".
I filled the tea cup with small ornaments so I would have
an excuse to use it for a Christmas decoration ~
and paired it with white berries and candles.
I love this mixture of green and white shapes and textures.
Last year, soon after I started blogging, I began
collecting brown transfer ware.
Then I discovered red, followed by purple.
And now there is green.
Of the red and green, I only have a few pieces that I
generally only bring out at Christmas time.
I'm trying really hard not to succumb to blue transfer ware ~ which seems to offer some of the most beautiful patterns of all, and that lady had lots of them. But ~ I was good and kept my purchases just to green and red.
