Collectibles

You see them all of the time, new lists of the hot collectibles.  If you have ever been by my blog it won't surprise you what my favorite collectibles are.  I am very fond of photographing them.  I have some favorites that I consider very photogenic.  My all time favorite collectible is transferware.  Pictured above is two patterns from Johnson Brothers, that I bought thriftly at a discount store.

This pattern is also by Johnson Brothers.  I went to an auction with my Dad years ago and he bought me a whole box of this for $13.  It was the very end of the auction and not too many people were still hanging around.  I love deals like that!


This is a new collection for me.  I have only had this large pitcher for a long time but, lately I have been picking up many pieces of ironstone very inexpensively at thrift stores and discount stores.

This is my husbands favorite collectible.  He likes my pewter collection.  I find pieces of this also in thrift stores, but the original collection came to me from my family. 

Maps & globes are a hot item right now.  I have always considered them an asset when decorating.  I picked these up at discount stores, yard sales, and an antique store.

I have always identified with Belle from Beauty and the Beast (Disney version), with her nose stuck in a book.  I love antique books.  The ones that get my attention are from my favorite authors or poetry.

This is just a few of my favorite collectibles.  What are yours?

Apparently mine are similar, since I have some pieces of the fall Johnson brothers too. I collect so many things, silver, pyrex, postcards, garden antiques. Just fun to collect what you like and brings you joy!

I could just stare at your collections all day! Totally my style as well. The pumpkin in the little tea cup was so so cute!

I really admire your collectibles, and I admire the way you showcase them with your photography even more. Beautiful Job!

Gorgeous collection! I too love the pewter one, but of course, I also admire your pretty transferware collection. I have just started with mine and I'm so happy with my red transferware, but also I don't mind any other color I can get, as they are difficult to find them around here. Have a happy week.

Beautifully photographed collections. Great ironstone collection.

Katie@LeBeauPaonVictorien said...

Lovely collections! I've been trying to collect ironstone myself. I love your collection; so prettily displayed in that hutch too! Love it! I also collect transferware; mostly blue transferware. And creamer jugs. I have a thing for creamer jugs; but usually I try not to separate a creamer jug from a sugar bowl.I feel bad "separating" a set...I usually try to find a creamer jug by itself.

Transferware has to be my #1 collectible -- I love every color and pattern. Your favorite collections are spot on in my book. Sally

Beautiful collections!

Ome omy- must I choose a fav collectible-not possible; I am addicted. I love so many DISHES; It always begins with "I would just like to have maybe 4 plates; or 4 c/s.." you get the idea. I have given up-this is an addition for which there is no cure-the minute I walk into another unique market or little shop I'm at it again. Need more dishes? Of course not--I just want them and I must add I DEFNITELY USE THEM..NONE ARE SAVED OR TAGGED TOO PRECIOUS TO HANDLE. The using-that's how we make the memories. Enjoy~

Nancy @ Nancy's Daily Dish said...

Hi Sherry,

Your photos are always so beautiful and you probably already know that I agree about transferware...my favorite collectible as well but I really have quite a few small collections around my home. I have to try to keep myself from starting new ones! Some of my favorite photos of yours with transferware are still the Fair Winds pieces with sea shells and a nautical theme. I loved that table and pics!

Oh, and I meant to comment on how gorgeous your white ironstone is and looks on your hutch.

Your photos are always fabulous!

Melanie said...

Your collectibles are gorgeous! I especially love the ironstone. I collect milk glass, pretty little plates (England or Germany), vintage cat and bird figurines...those are just some things off the top of my head. I'm sure there's more. ;-)

Heather said...

I'm a china collector too. But also like birds nests and old crystal, china birds and Tinkerbell. Liking the ironstone I'm seeing everywhere and may have to jump on board for that collectable too.

Scribbler said...

Great collections -- thanks for sharing.

I particularly like the green and white plates.

Cozy Little House said...

I love your transferware. I sold my blue and white when I moved. Kind of wish I hadn't...

I love Johnson Bros transferware, too! Love yours♥

Cathy @ My 1929 Charmer said...

I am so into blue dishes right now, but do not have any from Johnson Brothers, I've been looking for dishes lately and can't find any of my blues! Love your collections and love Anne of Green Gables - you know
"kindred" spirits! Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!

Hi Sherry: I love transferware. I have a few plates with the turkey and pink flowers. I thought that was rather an unusual color for Thanksgiving and was very happy to find it..Yours are all very beautiful..Happy Weekend..Judy
