Show and Tell Sundays: China

This week the topic for Show and Tell Sunday's, hosted by Little Pink Studio and Sugar Sugar, is China. I really had to pick and choose for this one.... have lots of china..... here are some that are close to my heart....

This red transferware pitcher was given to me by someone very near and dear to my heart.... and it is very special.....

Red transferware cream and sugar..... I love the shape of the sugar bowl......


Red transferware cups..... love the big one.... it holds lots of tea!

This is the only purple transferware piece that I have. Its just so pretty.


These are my blue transferware cannisters..... are you getting the theme here?? ;-)


This cookie jar belonged to my grandmother.... and someday I will pass it along to one of my daughters - the paint has all worn off the cherries but I adore it nonetheless......

These are my everyday dishes.... and so are these.....


I also have an incredible white ironstone platter that belonged to my great grandmother and was passed down to me. Its so heavy and incredibly gorgeous, but unfortunately, did not photograph well. I also have a collection of green depression glass.... but I better quit before I go on all night!! Thank you for visiting!

I love your range, as that massive teacup!!! As much as I love using a cup and saucer for my tea they don`t seem to hold enough.
warmest regards
