Starting on Spring with Green Transferware

After Valentine's Day I'm starting to think about Spring and Green and needing a change from the cold and dreary February weather. It's too early to be going all "Easter Bunnies" for me. But as I was thinking about my Holiday Cupboard in the Garden Room, I realized that bringing out some of my Green Transferware might be the first step that I needed.

I'm sharing a few of the small vignettes that I put together
 inside the cupboard that give just a hint of Spring.

I usually have Brown Transferware as my base for this cupboard.
I used Red for Christmas, which was a lot of fun,
but Spring needs a fresh look.

I love using small prints and postcards to set a mood and theme for displays. Not sure where I picked up this vintage crazy quilt heart, but loving the plaid and dark green.

Aren't these little mini topiaries so cute? I found them last year when we were in Branson. Now I'm wishing I would have bought several more.

I'll be sharing more of the Holiday Cupboard and start bringing in more touches of Spring with St. Patrick's Day and Easter as we get into March. Here are a few images from previous posts where I used pieces from my collection of green Transferware and my Ivy dishes I found a couple of years ago.

Are you getting started on anything Spring?

Hope to see you next Monday evening.

  1. Debra,
    I love your 'starting on spring' post!
    As I look ahead on the calendar, I too, see that Spring is rapidly approaching!
    Not quite ready for my bunnies to appear, either. . .
    but I am thinking green dishware, also!
    Thank you for always inspiring!
    P.S. Saw my first robin of the Season on Sunday morning!

  2. What a lovely post, Debra...I love your spring goodies! Pinning! The bird in the gravy boat is so cute!

  3. Love all your beautiful green pieces in your Spring Vignettes. It is fun that you can start dreaming of spring a little early with your inside decor. So pretty.

  4. Debra you have so many wonderful pieces of transferware. I still use my pink/red pieces. I love them all year round. I try to add touches of pinks and greens.

    The gravy boat is a gorgeous piece. You are right, The green topiaries are adorable,they can be nestled into many places.

    I've seeing your collections. My husband is Irish. I'm going to make him cottage pie this year.

    Enjoy your evening


    1. yum Cindy! I had to google exactly how cottage pie was different from Shepherd's Pie. The beef sounds better than lamb. baaaa. love chicken pot pie too!

  5. I LOVE all your transferware, and the green is perfect now, and with the brown it feels very earthy, true to nature. I gave what green I had to one of my sisters in my downsize. Those little topiaries are really cute. That cupboard is a wonderful place to play with dishes, Debra. I am welcoming spring with small transitions also.

  6. Green is such a pretty addition to your neutral palette. Love the ivy dishes, my mom had a few pieces of this when I was small and growing up! So, pretty and a hint of Spring, which is comforting here in Chicagoland with 11 degree temps!

  7. Debra, it all looks just so pretty. I am really beginning to get spring fever..Happy Weekend..xxoJudy

  8. So pretty. We had a mild, mild day in New York City today and it got me definitely in a "It Might as Well be Spring" kind of mood. Spring is my favorite season and I'm eager for real spring and spring flowers.

  9. My heart goes pitter patter over transferware, Debra, and you have so many pieces that I'm swooning over. I love the one with the cottage, and the set with the ivy...oh my! Thank you for sharing all the inspiration. I believe I need to see about getting some green transferware to add to my dish obsession!

  10. Wonderful collection of transferware! Such pretty vignettes! x Karen

  11. this is all so pretty. So perfect for early spring or early spring wishing. You always do the best vignettes. I love transferware but have just a few pieces. I'm trying not to collect it because I have so much of so many things. I will show soon a spring vignette with Majolica....a passion of mine. Always love seeing what you are up to!

  12. Debra, your nod to spring is perfect with all the touches of green. I love your transferware and this post is just so pretty and pleasing to the eye!

  13. I love your ivy dishes and all your green. My green stays out almost all year. I love your bits of Cotswold cottage decor. My bunnies are coming out early this year for some reason.

  14. So many lovely pieces of green transferware! Perfect for ringing in spring and welcoming the March holiday. I'm happy to be featuring you at Tuesday Turn About this week!

  15. Wow cDebra, love your spring post. You have quite the collection. The transferware is gorgeous. You have a knack for creating gorgeous vignettes. Thanks so much for sharing at Love Your Creativity.

  16. Debra, I love, love your collection of green transferware and ivy dishes! I've never been able to spot any at my local vintage or resale shops. We are heading to Ireland this summer and I'm hoping to find something special while there. Love all the vignettes and tables settings you've styled with them too.

  17. Okay, now I need to search out some green transferware, Debra! ;) {Like I need an excuse!} I love how you've styled your hutch for spring and all the other posts which are related. Saved the Christmas red and green transferware together. Adorable!!! Happy to feature your post this week at Share Your Style #247, thank you. <3

    Spring hugs,
    Barb :)

    Blessings to you.

  19. Omgosh! I am green with envy over your green dishes. They are all amaZing, but the brown & green transferware really caught my eye. I have to goi back and look at everything in more detail. Great eye candy! Thank you. XO- MaryJo
