A couple of weeks ago I showed what I’d love to change in my house. Today, I’m showing you something I actually love. My tiny collection of brown transferware that is in my tiny dining room. Or maybe it should be called the breakfast room.
Before I zero in, a quick note about a couple of the other things. The lamp was my mother’s. She had an interior decorator come in and do her whole house in 1967. This lamp stayed on her dresser until after her death. When Daddy remarried, the new wife came with her own stuff and taste. She didn’t care for this lamp, so it got to come home with me. I’ve loved it since it first came into the family and am proud to have it now. The painting came from a yard sale. If I remember right, I paid a couple of bucks for it. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it – with all it’s flaking paint and frame.
The pears were done by my sister-in-law. The plate is not the plate I want, but it is what it is for now.
A stack of demi cups under a clock cloche. They’re the most recent addition. Books and a pitcher in a serving dish. Funny how the difference in color doesn’t bother me so much in person, but I cringe a little when I see it in the picture.

We’re back from our little vacation. It was so good to see our son, daughter-in-law and grand-fur-babies. It was nice to be in gorgeous, south Florida. The skies are so vivid and deep there. But it’s really good to be back home. We got antsy to get back and came home a day before we’d planned. Ricky’s already working on the furniture we picked up off the side of the road. (Uh, yeah. That’s another post.) But I’m having a hard time getting back in the groove. I was on such a roll before we left. Cleaning and creating. I want no part of any of that now. Today was a wander around aimlessly day.
