"White Wednesday" in "Multiples"

I missed White Wednesday last week, so this week I'll make up for it by combining two parties! White Wednesday hosted by Kathleen over at Faded Charm and a "one-day" party hosted by Vintage Junky about "Multiples". I knew there was a reason I hadn't shared my Ironstone Pitchers!
I have a sitting area in my basement family room where most of my ironstone is located. I've been collecting, especially pitchers, for the last four years. This isn't all of it, but I love the graduated sizes of the pitchers.

Behind the pitchers is an oil painting of a fall scene
 in a shabby white frame that I found at a sale for $10.
(love the colors)
And since it's now officially Fall,
 I can show off my pitchers with the additional seasonal twist.

I also have found several Ironstone soup tureens and covered vegetables. These are mixed in with my various pieces of brown transferware. I love the old turkey platters and have several that are out all year. Here they are on a baker's rack that was a Wal-Mart "original" that I spray painted "Rust" several years ago.

Love the shape of this.

...and this one.

Up until last week, this soup tureen had been on my kitchen table, but I brought in some fall decor, so this came to the Dining Room. I think it works on the vintage milk glass cake pedestal.

Here are my other "multiples", as I have several sets
 of brown transferware sugar and creamers.

This white creamware set was my Mother's.
 I remember these dishes used at every holiday dinner.

On the baker's rack downstairs.

In my sitting area.

Back to the dining room, on an old wire plant stand.

I really love brown transferware, and Fall is just the best time of year
to bring it all out and let it take center stage!


  Be sure and go by  Vintage Junky to see all the participants at "Multiples",

And as always, Kathleen has a wonderful bunch of creative people with
 "White Wednesday" over at Faded Charm.

Have a day that is "multipled" fun!

And speaking of multiples, please be sure
 and join as a follower!
I have a great give-away coming up.

  11. What a wonderful collection. I love the look of Ironstone. I must say your brown transfer ware is my favorite. I have not been lucky enough to find any, yet.

  12. Dear Debra,
    I would have joined your beautiful blog without a give away. I love...love...white Ironstone pitchers and soup tureens. I do not own a white Ironstone Pitcher but I have hope to own one. I have 2 soup tureens...one 2 serving tureen and then a large one. I love your unusual shaped one...very pretty. I enjoyed your stories about your dishes.
    The painting is awesome....it really sets off your collection and is quite impressive for a 10.00 painting...I would have bought it too
    This is my first time to your blog and I will be back to read some more.

  16. You make me feel lazy for not having my house decorated for the fall yet! Lovely stuff. I have seen some soup tureens out and about and now regret not snatching them up. I will have to keep my eyes open from now on. Thanks for sharing your wonderful collections.

  23. I love ironstone and transfer ware! So, I totally enjoyed your post. I have a lot of my parents dishes and it's nice using certain pieces during the holidays. Brings back fond memories! Take care!

  24. I found a piece of brown transferware about 8 years ago. I wanted to find more, I loved it so much. I look high and low for 4 years and couldn't find anything. I finally gave up. I think that is the most perfect china I've ever seen. Your very lucky to have your momas.

    Happy White
