First, I want to say that I scoured Pinterest and Etsy for some
beautiful photos of red and white (pink) transferware because
where else would one go?
I have linked every photo to the source I could link them back to
so if you're interested in where they came from,
click the photo. :) And thank you to all the owners of
these photos for taking such amazing shots!
So, a couple of months ago, before
we painted the kitchen cabinets,
one of the bottom shelves came crashing down.
Of course it was the one with our
plates and bowls along with some
other collected white stoneware.
Obviously those obnoxious little peg
thingies are not made to hold weight
I had "brought it up" a couple of
times over the past months but,
you know how that goes. Priorities!
Not more than 30 minutes after I mentioned it again
to the sweet Mr. that we needed to add cleats
all the way around the shelves did those things
When will husbands learn to listen
to their wives?
We had casualties and I have been searching high and low
for the same pieces to no avail.
I came to a better solution!
I am going to start collecting
red and white transferware.
I really love the mis-matched arrangement
of white and red and white, together.
Since all the dinner plates survived (don't know
how that happened!), we just need replacements
for salad/dessert plates and bowls like these below.
And, it will give me a pop of red my kitchen so
My Kitchen Aid will be so happy!
I want to unify the kitchen, dining and living rooms
so the pull together color is going to be fabulous red.
Just bits and pieces though, just enough to
give us a French Country feel.
I once, maybe twice, condemned red from my house.
I love red. Always have, always will.
I must have been in a bad mood those times.
Now it will have a home in my house. Always.
And I think I might have to find
an apron just like this one, too.
And have this in my jardin.
What do you think?
