My addiction to beautiful china comes from my mother. She also collects china, and has a beautiful china hutch, that once belonged to my Great Grandmother.
My mother has been kind enough to store my full set of Bavarian China in the Blue Garland pattern for me. I found the Bavarian China in an antique store in Williston for a very reasonable price. My Uncle (who is an antique dealer on the side) has helped me find extra pieces here and there.
|Because my china isn't here, I couldn't photograph it. But I found this exact cup and saucer on Ebay, so I'll borrow the image to show you. It is NOT microwavable because of the silver edges. Found that out the hard way!|
|Again, I don't have the china here so pictures from the web will have to do. See how colorful they are! It's been said that the pattern contains the state flower of each Canadian Province.|
|Here is the little display that sits on my antique sewing cabinet.|
|This is another beautiful pattern from Homer Laughlin.|
|This is a serving bowl by Homer Laughlin. I like both the blue boarder and the pink. Would have a hard time choosing if I were having to pick out a whole set of china.|
|This one's kind of hard to see, but is also Homer Laughlin and sits on my high dresser chest. (That's Foxy Loxy standing next to it.) This platter has seen better days, but I still think it's pretty in a shabby chic sort of way.|
|I've always liked this pattern Homer Laughlin Eggshell Georgian. This isn't one of my cups and saucers, I found this photo on the web. But I do so love it!|
|I wish I could remember which blog this picture was from! I'm not positive but would say that these too are Homer Laughlin Eggshell Georgian.|
|Here's an example from the blog Love and Life at Leadora. I would use flowered plates instead of just white ones, but the concept is the same. By the way, I'm totally coveting that wrought-iron headboard.|
