Wildflowers in Winter ~ Week 4

 

The Wildflower fun is continuing at Elizabeth Joy’s site. This week February 6th thru the 12th the theme is decorating in the home.

Wildflowers in the Home – Decorating with wildflowers. Show us dishes or other decorations made by you or someone else that you have in your home. Save the fabric decorations and paintings or drawings for the next two weeks.

I’m sharing dishes that I have with floral themes. Some may not be true wildflowers. I’m also including two collages of tea-cups that we have given to my mother over the years that have more of a wildflower feel to them.

My china pattern is Moss Rose by Royal Albert.

These are Johnson Brothers English Chippendale (pattern 103232)

These are a few of the Tea-Cups we have bought our mother over the years.

 

For more Wildflowers in the Home visit Elizabeth Joy at Wildflower Morning.

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

  1. Ellen beautiful collection and beautiful photography. The lily of the valley tea cup looks very similiar to mine but yours is more delicate.

    I don’t know how to spell it but, veranya. Is that something like the Russian expression for tea.

    Kathy, Varenya is the wonderful fruit syrups (with the chunks of fruit) our mothers have cooked and canned to put into tea to sweeten it. My mom has made berry, cherry, lemon, kumquat etc. My favorite has been the lemon. So you have probably heard varenya offered to enjoy with the tea!

  2. These are fantastic, Ellen. Are you registered on Blotanical? You should be if you’re not. Thank you for visiting me, and like you, I am saddened by the devastation from the tornadoes. Very frightening.

  3. Oooh, you have such lovely things, My favorite is the Lily-of-the-Valley teacup. The Johnson Bros. dishes are very nice too. I have a Johnson Bros. Flo-blue plate that I did not include in my week four entry.

  4. So lovely!! I have one that looks like the violet cup and saucer in the bottom left corner. My mother’s china was also Royal Albert – the Petit Point pattern. She passed it on to me.

  5. Very beautiful! Great post! I wish I could come visit for tea and sip out of one of your lovely teacups. Nothing like inviting myself over, right? I would bring tea and scones if you provided the cookies. 🙂

    LaTeaDah

    LaTeaDah, I’d love to plan something just like that in the future, Lord willing, it would be wonderful…

  6. Beautiful china! I love china tea cups and teapots even though I prefer to drink out of a good ol’ sturdy coffee mug. The china is just beautiful to look at and it blooms all year:o)

    I am really wondering what I can do for this week. I have plenty of wildflower bouquets during the spring and summer months, but I don’t know that I have any wildflower decor that is permanent.

  7. Pretty tea cups! I think I may have given my mother the one in the upper left corner of the second set from the bottom. It looks very familiar. Are they white hellebore flowers?

  8. To all the lovely ladies that have commented on week four of Wildflowers in Winter, thank you very much.
    It would be fun to have a tea party at the end of this bloggy carnival wouldn’t it?!
    We’d have wildflower dishes, linens, poetry, and real live wildflowers. Wouldn’t it be loverly!
    Blessings on y’all. Looking forward to seeing some wildflower in fabric next week…
