I have collected brown transferware for years. It is one of my home's signature items. In the many homes our family has lived in, my brown transferware collection has been displayed on plate racks, in glass cupboards, hung on walls and individual pieces used on tables etc... Since we moved into our current home almost a year ago, my transferware has been hidden in a cupboard in my dining room - I just had not found the right spot/use for it. Until this week.....
I purchased this old mirror a couple weeks ago at a favorite vintage shop. And finally this week, I hung some of my brown transferware platters and plates over the mirror. The rest of the collection resides in the glass front cabinet below the mirror - mixed in with various pieces of ironstone.
In the spirit of the Nester's post about bringing spring into your home - I also used a piece of transferware in the old metal tray I am using in the middle of my dining room table. This great old metal tray along with its "spring-scape" provides some much needed spring-spirit. In Minnesota, inside is the only place you will find any sign of spring - there is still snow on the ground outside!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
