Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! I've confessed to you before that I am a dish-aholic. I don't keep my vintage ware stored in a cabinet, no ma'am I eat off it daily. I have treasured pieces displayed as some would showcase art. I even use thrift store china in my garden. Today's fabulous find is my latest love--transferware!
Ever since I recovered these thrift store chairs, I have been drawn to shades of brown transferware. Something about the bird and leaf pattern on the fabric makes me think of the lovely dishes. Of course, dishes--that's just the way my mind works! I have been gathering most of these for about a month. Today's feature is this dinner plate by Alfred Meakin England, the Rosalie pattern and was a $1.50 thrift store find. I am partial to florals and love the colors!
This sweet pattern called Friendly Village is by Johnson Brothers. A local antique shop I like to browse occasionally has sales and their prices are often as good as thrift stores, like this great find!
Another Johnson Brothers pattern, this one called Sheraton was a .25 yard sale find...
...as were these unmarked pretties. I found them online dated from the 60s.
Here's a closer peek at the collage as a whole...
Until next time, happy hunting!
