ANTIQUE VALENTINE PLATE

 I was wondering if there was any such
thing as an antique or vintage Valentine
 plate and sure enough I found one.  In
fact, the one I found is #8 in a series, 
marked "Adams" and made in England.









I have since, seen a few
others on Ebay or Etsy.
I decided one was
enough to make me
happy and yes, this
one is a little stained
 but I'm ok with that since it is just going to be a decoration.







I haven't gotten my other Valentine's Day
Decorations out but am thinking of doing
some crafting of Valentines.  How
about you?

FRIENDLY VILLAGE FOR JANUARY

Now that Christmas is over I am still enjoying
my Friendly Village dishes in the
dining room.



 






The mirror belonged to my husband's
Mother, Pauline.







With a fire going it makes for a warm
and cozy room for dinner.

JANUARY IS A TIME TO CELEBRATE TRANSFERWARE



I recently began to acquire some
green transferware.  I don't have a lot so
I mixed it with some white dishes and
teapots to expand my display.






I glued the lid back on this sugar bowl that I had purchased 
 along with many other pieces 
that were broken
during shipment to me.



















I find the green transferware hard to find.  This 
is a combination of different patterns:  Havana
and The Florentine by Johnson Brothers and
also Roxbury by Alfred Meakin.

What colors do you collect?

 Even though I didn't blog a lot during
2022, I am posting one link here for
each month to look back in time and
see some of my favorite tea in the
