Little Goodies





Ok, how many of you get in the mood to move things around to freshen up the "look" of a room, or vignette, or just create a new grouping? Last week I decided to move out the pink rose items from my white hutch and moved in the vintage red and green dishes.

I collect different patterns of restaurant china and am particularly fond of my Buffalo China that is in the red Kenmore pattern and Green Plymouth pattern. These colors blend nicely with other china, especially those pieces for setting the Christmas table.

Other brands that I like are Syracuse, Shenango China, and Wallace. Along with American restaurant china, I am also attracted to English red transferware. Most of my collections are a little bit of this and that and they just seem to live comfortably together in my little white cabinet - and lest not forget to mention along with my little birdie things, too.

Becky, I love your blog! Rearranging is so refreshing. I LOVE that Green rose sugar bowl! What is the pattern? I'd love to nab a few pieces. Green is my fav color and roses, well, goes without saying.

Thank you all for your visit and sweet comments. I will leave this info in case anybody else is interested in the questions asked so far. I'll try to email answers as well.

Tina's ?? - The bunting I bought at Big Lots. It was 9.99 each panel and my porch had 8 or 9.

Melissa's ?? - The sugar bowl is the Clsssic Buckingham pattern by J and G Meakin, England. Now if I could find the creamer. I love it because it has clovers on it, too.

Take good care everyone!

xo,

Becky
