Hello Dear Readers!
Happy Monday! Yes, it’s a happy Monday as it is
Monday Morning Blooms Monday!
Join me today with my Monday Morning Blooms friends, Mary and Pam,
as we share our our floral inspiration with the common theme of
Blue Transferware . . . . with a bit of red.
Unfortunately Lidy was unable to join us this week; however she will be back.
Mary’s and Pam’s beautiful images and links to their posts are below.
So join me for my
Blue Transferware Flower Arrangement.
Our theme as stated above is Blue Transferware with a bit of red.
I did a little something different with that as you will see
towards the end of the post.
In the meantime, here is how I began to create the flower arrangement,
I am using pieces that are sentimental or have a story.
I chose this antique blue transferware chamber pot.
It is rather different than most as it also has a design on the inside too.
This chamber pot was a gift many, many years ago
from a friend and colleague who wasn’t into this kind of thing
and it had belonged to her husband’s grandmother.
I was the lucky recipient of something that no one wanted! 🙂
I believe this was my first antique blue and white transferware piece.
There is no hallmark on the bottom, so have no idea of its origin/maker.
I seem to always start my flower arrangements in a triangle pattern and then
fill in the flowers as I go along.
I placed a plastic food storage container
into the chamber pot with wet floral foam.
The flowers in the arrangement today are:
Blue and White Hydrangeas
I was so hoping that the stores would have some peonies but no luck.
Maybe next time!
I had mentioned that the pieces that I used have a story or some sentiment.
Like this sweet transferware chintz sugar bowl.
I purchased it in Maine, when I was visiting Linda of Lulu’s Musings.
She took me to some great antique shops in the town of Camden, Maine.
This wonderful antique blue transferware plate,
(Oriental) is a momento from my Road Trip with
Mary Alice of Rare Corners on IG (formerly Chateau Chic).
A gift from Mary Alice.
Our road trip was to see Amy of Maison Decor
to attend her estate sale.
I did purchased a couple of plates of the above transferware
pattern from Amy. I have began a very small collection of those pieces.
Don’t you just love how flowers beautifully light up a room with happy!
I love it when Irises are in season….such a beautiful color!
I filled an antique transferware pitcher
with soft blue and white hydrangeas.
A pitcher that I found on an antiquing excursion with my sister.
The transferware vignette sits on top of the chinoiserie table in the great room.
I continue to search for an ottoman/coffee table for the new house.
Now for my “little bit of red”.
For the summer months, we seem to use lots of red in our decor.
Memorial Day . . . . Flag Day . . . . 4th of July
So for those holidays, I like to add a bit of red.
Whether it be in the flowers or an item
such as this red transferware mini tureen.
I think there will be a flag or two in that red tureen in the future.
Hope you enjoyed the blue transferware vignette with the added bit of red
to change up for the holidays of the summer.
And now it is time to see the loveliness and charm of Mary and Pam’s creations
with blue transferware! The links to their posts are below their beautiful images.
I wish you all most beautiful day!!
