Red Transferware

Red transferware is quite popular today. I've been lucky to find such a darling set. It took a lot of trips to gather that many dishes...

I don't collect a certain pattern, I love having pieces in different patterns.

I do mix my red transferware with lots of other things though. The Spode mug I bought in Singapore, the Johnson Bros oval platter found at Regent St London and the Staffordshireware from flea market.

Anyway, that's my little corner cabinet. I tend to change out the dishes here a few times a year. Right now, the cabinet is filled with red transferware, rose bouquet tableware and some Royal Albert Crown China.

I love toile and transferware together! I bought this red French Toile fabrics in Korea some time ago.. You can pair transferware with toile fabric for an elegant French decor.

This is a Barratt's, England red transferware made in the Elizabethan pattern. Beautiful vintage saucer with a very detailed rural landscape scene, cows standing in front of an old English cottage, surrounded by gorgeous flowers.

Rich deep pinky red toile plate with stunning cottage motif. Made in Staffordshire England.

This is a mug in Spode's newest Christmas pattern called Winter's Eve. This mug are almost 3.5" tall and 3 in diameter. In stock: 2. Pls click here for prices.

This vintage transferware serving platter was manufactured by Johnson Brothers of England. It features the popular "Old Britain Castles" pattern in the most common red/pink color. The scalloped rim is decorated with an ornate border and leafy scrolls. Measures approx. 15.25" by 12.75". Available on my website here.

Another item that was sold some time ago...Teaset of 11 pieces from Johnson Bros. I really like the teapot which is exemplifies of high-style tea service.

A pretty coffee set for display or use. Standing on little feet, the shape is very traditional, and will go with any classic decor..already sold.

Hard to find. Wonderful piece of pink tureen in the Old Britain Castles pattern made by Johnson Brothers.

Thanks for visiting. Bye!

My Everyday Gadget

What tool, equipment and accessories can you not live without? Here’s a look at some of my every day gadget.

I consider my Nokia N97 mobile phone just a normal everyday gadget i have to carry around with me even in the house. I enjoy browsing with the help of that great touchscreen.

Dell Vostro 1520 laptop with 15.4" widescreen display, is targeted towards small to medium-sized entrepreneurs like me. So since i work in online business, this device is good enough for my daily activities such as blog-walking, web-surfing, editing images and of course watching Korean movies...

As for now, i'm using Canon Powershot SX110is, a great camera, that's for sure...

To tell you the truth, I'm eye-ing on Canon DSLR...I like having both because I think they compliment each other and each are suited for different situations. I want to shoot more quality pictures with the DSLR...Should i buy a DSLR or not?

The best way to ensure I remember my life is probably to keep a diary. I don´t only write about 'things i should do today' but also about my customers orders and jot down a little things and thoughts that i might be forget it later.

Thanks for visiting. Have a great weeekend!
