What's In My Cabinet

Hi!  I'm joining Sandi today at Rose Chintz Cottage to talk about "What's in my Cabinet?We are sharing things that are our treasures.  I have always loved my blue and white transferware by Johnson Brothers the pattern is Coaching Scenes.  I have it here in the hutch with a few simple decorations for fall.

My other treasure would have to be the pewter collection.  It was originally started by my parents in the 70's when there was a Colonial Revival going on in decorating due to the Bicentennial of 1976.

I have added a few pieces over the years.

It always looks timeless as a full place setting or with just a few accent pieces like these candlesticks and bowl.  What's in your cabinet?  Any treasures?
 Don't forget to check out my giveaway of My Memories Suite scrapbooking software!  It is great for bloggers and scrapbookers!

Hi Sherry,
Well, I love your blue JB Coaching Scenes china and it looks fabulous displayed in your cabinet! The orange pumpkins set it off nicely too. You know I never cared much for pewter or silver for that matter, but the last number of years I am really liking it a lot! You have some wonderful pieces and your mantel looks great! Thanks so much for joining my party today and have a beautiful day.

Your hutch is beautiful and I love the little miniatures. Blue and orange are so lovely together. Your cow print is the perfect accent. Deb

I love the pewter collection! I have a few myself that I found at a thrift store but they were banged up and dented on one side. I have to display them with the damaged side facing the wall. Yours is displayed so nicely.

I love how you display your blue and white transferware china for it so perfect on your cabinet. The pewter collection is a great collection to use and showcase and reminds me of the houses and taverns of Williamsburg. The tablescapes are so pretty. I like the thought of you continuing the tradition of collecting which your parents started.
