What's another collection?????

Every once in a while I like to post about something I like to collect...Today it's vintage transferware. The only difference is that this is a new collection and I only have a few pieces. But with even just a few pieces, I think that for the Fall, it's just enough to blend in beautifully with my ironstone!


This tureen I just adopted this weekend at a little antique show. $16!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't believe it!!!!!!

What I am loving about this platter is that there is a little lip around that rectangle in the middle. It probably had a cover once but I think it will be perfect for some hors d'ouvres on Thanksgiving!




Aren't butter pats sweet!?


Even going pee-pee must have been pleasant in this chamber pot! (Hmmmm...Now I am just realizing that someone really did use this at one time!)

Last but not least, a big 'ole turkey platter!


I didn't even know that my one year blogiversay was October 15th so check back...I may just have to have some kind of giveaway!

Your new collection is starting off beautifully. If I had more room that is definately something I would love to collect. Like you, I started out with one turkey platter and now I have 5. Congratulations on your one year anniversary.
