I've had a change - I have changed the dresser in my kitchen. I started off with my white thrifted soup tureen (which you can read about here) and then gathered up all the white china I could find in the house.
I lived with that for a few days but it really looked a bit 'nothing'. I'm sure you know what I mean.
I'm still going to paint and distress the dresser but as yet haven't found the time!! I'm going to see if those gorgeous chalk paints are available here in Australia yet. The colours I have seen in them are just beautiful.
The bright green apples just seem to make everything pop. They were for an apple crumble which you can see hasn't been baked yet!
I love the texture of these gorgeous woven balls.
White tulips - I have seen so many of these around blogland I just had to have some...
Daughter No 1 thought the change was so much better - much more modern she said!!! I think that means I passed!
I hope you like my changes as much as I do!! I am reposting an earlier post about my dresser so you can see the difference. (Also cos I've just learnt how to repost - thanks girls!!).
A few years ago when my Dad died he left me some money - not a lot but money he had worked hard for and had saved so I decided I would buy myself something really nice to keep in his memory. I thought for quite a while before I decided on a Royal Albert dinner set in Old Country Roses design. Over the years I have been lucky enough to receive lots of accessories to match. I thought I would share it with you for this week's teascapes.
This tall glass is actually a candle that matches the colour of the roses perfectly.
I love cups all stacked up like this - especially when they are this pretty!!
The chintz plates are really my all time favourite - if I could have a complete dinner set like this I would be in heaven!
I have matching placemats and coasters in two different sizes - it is amazing how many accessories there are too match.
Even a guest book - please take the time to leave me a message. lol
More cups piled high.
No table would be complete without the matching salt and pepper shakers, sugar bowl and creamer. We received this beautiful sugar spoon as a wedding present - it has a beautiful rose on the end.
Platters in all shapes and sizes...
Even a pretty little cake stand - once again I have been baking (not)!!
How stunning is this chintz?? I love this in any colour - not that I have any others but I have seen lots in antique shops. On my wish list.....
This china is also Royal Albert Old Country Roses but in a more country style - not quite as dainty as the other.
I had intentions of painting this old dresser before I showed any photos but as usual time just gets away. I still intend painting it so I will keep you posted and show it to you once it is finished
(Seems I am still having problems with my spacing - hope to get it sorted soon.)
This week I am joining:-
