Winter Blues

I love the gray/blue colour of transfer ware, common around 1900. pieces usually have beautiful delicate garden design.
 I found this vegetable dish without lid for $3 at a charity shop this week

I posted about these gorgeous  dessert dishes I found a couple of months ago, for $1 each

  1. Beautiful transfer ware - what a bargain!
    I hope your sweet boy feels better soon.
    I'm over winter and cold days - longing to get into my garden again.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Hope your sweet cat is feeling better soon. What a bargain price for the vegetable dish, it is beautiful.

  3. I like the blue transfer ware and you got it so cheap.....
    The view from your back porch is again so very beautiful and what about these golden wattle trees: just magnificent, we cannot grow these outside, but I think these yellows are the very first steps to spring.
    Always love how you end with the chickens in your posts, it was nice to see your photos again.

  4. Love the no lid dish and wow those bowls for $1 each.
    I need to get back out in the thrift store
    I am so sorry your baby got mauled by another mean ole cat , hope he recovers quickly

  5. So much loveliness. Oh your back yard. Swoon. And those bully cats. Hope your little fluff ball is back in shape soon.

  6. I love the dawn photo with the misty clouds kissing the hills as they pass. Lovely.

  7. What beautiful photos! So sorry too hear about your kitty!

  8. Such pretty scenes - lovely dishes you have found. Poor little kitty :(

  9. I was sorry to hear about your kittie getting injured. Make sure he is up-to-date on his shots! Poor little fellow.

  10. That picture at dawn is phenomenal! Your winter garden is just gorgeous....I have never seen such pretty trees as those golden wattle trees. I thought that you got snow there but apparently not!

  11. Love your pretty transferware, and of course, your beautiful scenery.

  12. As always - gorgeous photography. Hope your kitty is better soon.

  13. So jealous of your great finds! I wish we had thrift and antique stores of that caliber around here!

    Thank you for sharing!

  15. Your landscape is lovely this time of year.
