It's time for the burnished colors of autumn. The golds, the coppers, the auburn's, russets, and sienna's. A little gold rimmed china seems perfect for fall. This little demitasse cup and saucer by Spode has just the tone I like for the season. The pattern is "Chatham."
I unpacked a few other glinty French cups and saucers that I had stowed away, and think they are lovely all tumbled together in a vintage wire rack.
A mix of china patterns is much more interesting to me, and when I gather pretty china in bits here and there, and at a great price, it's all the more pleasurable. All of these pieces are from thrift stores, 2.00 to 4.00 ea..
I thought I would share a few new finds from the weekend too. Underneath my teacups is a vintage cotton apron made from a flour sack. I liked the earthy colors and simple design. Two dollars, already washed and ironed. It has a mate in a black cotton print.
At the same market I discovered a nice berry patterned English china teacup in wonderful fall colors to mix with the rest. (14.00)
I'm showing my new cup on top of a single vintage pillowcase that I bought from the same
flea market. It was too pretty to pass up, and will keep good company with the other singles I have in the linen cupboard. ($9.00)
Which one would you choose? (I don't have pattern names for any of the Limoges teacups or saucers shown here. Sorry.) But here are the sweet details just a little bit closer. . . .
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!
I hope you're enjoying a little fall color too!
