Themed Thursday and Blue Transferware

Welcome to the first Themed Thursday, hosted by KD at Southern Whimsy. Thank you KD for hosting this new event!

Today's theme is Blue Transferware.

I love Spode's transferware and have it in blue, red and green. A few years ago, remodeling turned the house into chaos, and all the plate arrangements hanging on the walls were removed. After seeing Barb's and KD's posts, I'm going to start putting nails in the walls again! In the meantime, here's a collage of my blue transferware. (Click on the picture to enlarge it.)

Please visit KD and Barb to see their blue transferware eye candy.

Enjoy!

Hi Diane!
Love the transferware and yes you need to get that on the walls. Ive been stopping by to read but havent posted...this darn job thing is keeping me way to busy.
Thanks for stopping by. Hubs is gonna do some research on building those glass doors. It would be great if he can.

This transferware reminds me of my blue and white kitchen I had for many years. Although my colors have changed I still have my favored Spode hanging on my wall.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Just like you, I love Spode blue transferware and of course, I love yours! I just joined in and posted mine. I wanted to create a collage just like you to make the post shorter, but I am new to blogging and I couldn't figure it out. Can you give me instructions when you get a chance? Thanks....Christine

Diane -- I have many of the same pieces of Spode -- I love it and it is amazing at how pretty the table looks no matter what other color you put with it.

There is something special about blue and white!

Love your collection!
