Special Kitchen Issue of Romantic Homes

COMING SOON:  Check your magazine counter for the upcoming special Kitchen issue of Romantic Homes in addition to the regular monthly issue. This is the cover to left.

We have here in the store a large inventory of this pattern as well as other transferware in various colors. I will try to add some shots of ours if can get camera to work right. If anyone talks to my husband before the birthday coming up in Nov. be sure to mention that I need a new camera. OK?  I would do the same for you if asked.

Below is the red Crown Ducal in the center sitting in white lacey charger. Have much more of this that I can add later when I find the file with pictures  I saved. I am such a novice when it comes to blogging.

Below is the beautiful haunting glory of Old English Rose. It is by Royal Albert who also makes the better know Old Country Roses which is almost as beautiful as this. The Replacements Ltd. man came around about a year ago and cleaned me out of this pattern but since have been able to accumulate more for the store.
Bavarian and RS Prussia are favorites of mine and many of my customers here.
Haviland patterns are always bought as fast as I can find them. I do a good business with china even though it is not like a few years back!!!
My old standby is blue and white.
In the special kitchen issue there is another kitchen with blue and white that  you will love if you are like me. My kitchen walls are yellow with ivory below the chair rail and blue and white china to the excess all over the walls and in cabinets, on floors and wherever you look. 
Teal to the left.
Above is an area of my store showing all blues and whites. One customer said, "This is my favorite corner in town."      Please do not use my pictures, thanks.

Ooooohhhh, I saw that piece on Brown transfer in Romantic Homes and could have eaten it up with a big spoon. my favorite. I'll have to keep on the lookout for the Kitchens issue. Hadn't heard about it yet. Your store looks so wonderful and inviting. Love that cute corner cupboard! Hope you're having a great weekend!

I'll have to look for that issue-it sounds good. I love Haviland china and often look for it when antiquing and thrifting:).
