Sharing some of my treasures....

I would like to take you on a little tour of some of my treasures.

Should I paint this shelf white?

Dishes above the dining room window.

Some of the red toile and Rose Chintz dishes which I collect. Some of the Rose Chintz was given to me by my aunt and some of it I got on eBay.

Do you remember the little white china tray I bought at the tea room in New Glasgow? Here it is with a little teapot I also got.

Remember I said I didn't know what I was going to do with the tray? Well, I went to English Butler and found these egg cups which are a perfect match to the tray.
Now I have a place to keep my egg cups when my youngest son comes home from university.
He likes his egg in an egg cup, as do I.

I also found a spaghetti holder and tea-for-one that match the egg cups. They look smashing on the kitchen counter! The teapot has a decorative border around the bottom of the pot which matches the little tray and egg cups. Sorry, I should have taken a picture to show you.

Well, that's the tour for today....thanks for coming along!

Love your rose chintz china! I have some pieces like your ivory tray, but not that particular one.

I would leave the shelf just the way it is, matches your cabinets. You have a special touch in decorating with dishes. Buying china plates are a weakness for me, my cabinet is full of odd plates that are so pretty. One of my favorite old patterns is one called "Devonshire". Bought 8 plates last year while shopping at antique mall in Atlanta, GA.
