What's in the cupboards and on the shelves....

Hi Bloggers!
Ever see a pretty cupboard and wonder what's inside....
 Well if you'll show me yours, I'll show you mine....
 Just a mish mash of things I love...
 How about a closer look at what's on the shelves in the living room...
 My slow growing mixture of brown transferware.  Most found at thrifts and antique shops....

Fell in love with the little sheep and it's baby.....

 My crepe myrtles are blooming beautifully...despite the outrageous hot weather we are having...
Just one week from today I'll be visiting my Sister and her husband in my home town in West Virginia.  We are returning as guests for our old golf club's Member/Guest event.  We have three days packed full of golfing, socializing and wonderful dinners. My sister and I will also be doing some serious antiquing and shopping in West Virginia and Ohio.  I plan to tell you all about it in the upcoming weeks.

I'm joining the  Potpourri Friday at 2805 !!!!  Be sure and stop over.

What a beautiful treasure trove! I recently took everything out of my china cabinet and only put ONE set of dishes back in. All of my other ones are packed away. I will have to post a picture! Have fun on your vacation!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Enjoy your vacation and visit, Sissie! I have two of those floral dishes on your top shelf. I mix them in with other green dishes I have and they play nice together. : ) Love your brown transferware ~ it is my favorite. I only have a few small pieces. I do look when I'm at the thrift or antique mart, but never seem to get lucky and find any.

Marydon said...

Have sorely missed you, Sissie. Enjoy your vacation.

The cupboards & collections are awesome.

The last time I played the "show me" game, I ended up married, but I'm willing to take another chance just to get a little peek-a-boo at what you call mish-mash!
I'll be waiting with bated breath for you to get back. You know I love your sisters stories better than anything!!!

You might find a few things missing from that gorgeous cabinet when you get back Sissie but I will never tell who did it!!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Doesn't look like a mish mash to me! Love the brown transferware. I have 3 small plates and would like to have more (shocker!) Have fun at your member-guest. We have played in many over the years and they are always such a good time. Talk to you soon...Ann

Debbie said...

Your shelves look lovely with all of your pretty dishes.
The flowers are gorgeous, Sissie!!!
Do they smell as good as they look?

June said...

I love all your pretties Sissie girl. I love the beautiful floral pieces you have.
You are so lucky to have the myrtles blooming in that pretty pink. It's so sad that we can't grow them here. But i will just enjoy them here at your house.
I know you will have a wonderful time in your home town visiting with your sister. I wish I could be a fly on the wall when you two get together.

Beautiful treasures in your cupboard Sissie!


Amy @MaisonDecor said...

your china cabinet is so pretty with the pink liner...and the contents of course. i saw 4 square plates at auction of brown transferware with colors from Johnson Bros..something like the village or cottages collection? I don't recall...if I knew you liked them I could hae put in a bid for you!
