Sharin' O' The Green Blog Hop/Some Spring Collectables

A huge thank you to Amber from Follow The Yellow Brick Home for hosting this blog hop.
 The timing is perfect as I have been playing with some green spring collectables.

It's greening up a little here in Texas which means planting season is around the corner.
Hopefully, our budding trees can withstand the freeze we are having. I can't wait for spring. 
If you are stopping in from, My Thrift Store Addiction. welcome. I love jadite and Cecilia's styling is alway darling.

The hutch in the garden room has had a few different looks since Christmas. I wanted to lighten things up from the red and black after Valentine's Day.

It was time to pull out my green dishes.

I have a mix of transferware, hotel china, and majolica ware.

Palissy Ware commonly known as Victorian Majolica differs from earlier majolica and is known for its naturalistic motifs. It was extremely sought after in the 80s and it fetched high prices. It's been highly copied. Most of my pieces are copies but spring is a perfect time to display some leafy looking Majolica plates. 

I've sprinkled a few birds and bunnies into the mix. 

I have one piece of Belleck for St. Patrick's Day.

A calendar plate from my grandparents is probably my favorite spring collectable. 
I tried to research the artist and couldn't find anything. The art is very similar to the style of Edith Holden. She was an Edwardian artist and was well known for her journals with sketches of animals and birds. I just discovered her. (I've been under a rock, I guess.) I'm sure she was featured in Victoria Magazine but I must have just missed that somehow. The bucolic style of her art is perfect with my vintage vignettes. 

It's hard to fathom that this little plate has survived 108 years. I've always adored having on display. 

My daughter's embroidery says it best.

Yup! That's darling.

  18. I absolutely love all of your green dishes. And your daughter's embroidery is lovely.

    Have a great day.

  19. In Maine, they say, "That's cunning." instead of darling! Loved all your green, but espeically your calendar plate. I, too, have 1 piece of Beleek (an Evangeline pitcher); my ex is Irish and one year I made a hit with his mother by buying her a Beleek creamer and sugarer set. I knew it was a hit because she displayed it on the mantel! Around St. Patrick's Day, I got called Kathleen as my last name then was O'Malley!

  20. Katie, I love the mixture of different shades of green. The pitchers especially stole my heart! The calendar plate is a priceless heirloom for sure!!

  21. I am absolutely smitten with your green collection of dishes. Green is my favorite color. I am at the beach right now with tons of thrift stores. I'm going out searching for green transferware!!

  22. You have a beautiful collection of green dishes. I love all your vignettes. Very pretty.

  23. I love your restaurant ware with the green. I'd love to add some of those to my already too full dishes stash! Isn't it nice to look at something totally different when the seasons change? Your collection is so fresh!

  24. Wonderful green dishes and stunning vignettes.Hugs.
