Christmas China Cabinet and a Winner!

When you go through a move you just have to expect that things will change. Room sizes, function, and wanting a different look all cause the upset of the proverbial apple cart...even down to kitchen cabinets, dishes, and how you display things. While we were at the lease house, I used my vintage pie safe in the kitchen to display some seasonal and holiday items along with a frequently changing array of transferware and ironstone. But I decided to use the pie safe downstairs for a kitchen grouping, and bring back my Antique White China Cabinet that matches the table and chairs.



The China Cabinet and table and chairs had been in storage this last year, so I was really glad to see them all again!



In the past I'd had my French Faience in this cabinet with my blue crystal and odds and ends of floral teapots, cups and saucers, and some Depression Glass. But when we moved and the "Holiday Cupboard" was sold (boo hoo) I needed a place to decorate seasonally with dishes and to enjoy my different sets of Transferware.




I put out my Brown Transferware when we first moved in this Fall. I kept thinking I'd change it out for the Red but time got away from me. So there are only a few red pieces on display. But I added some Christmas fun with vintage bottle brush trees and a few of my Putz Houses. My cows and creamers, and then lot's of vintage ornaments are making it a little more Christmas-y.



Doesn't everyone need a few "Christmas Cows"?













These two vintage egg cups are perfect bottle brush tree holders.








I mainly have bits and pieces, not full sets of my Transferware, but since I mix and match, it all gets stacked together.










More Christmas details from around the house, coming soon.
