Always in Bloom


Here are a few images of some of my china collection. Most of which is floral. I have lots and lots of English patterns, as well as some Danish, Japanese, and American. I've been collecting for over 20 years. I love red glass so you'll find a bit of it mixed in. Enjoy your day xxx tami

  1. Wow Tami... 20 years of collecting china... I'll bet you have a fabulous collection! I love your red & white transferware... beautiful! There was a time, before I decorated in all white, that I wanted to collect it and use it to set a pretty Christmas table (I think I saw inspiration in a Martha Stewart Mag :)). Yours is beautiful!
    Have a great day,
    ~ Jo :)

  2. Hi Jo, thanks so much for your nice comment, I love Martha. Mine started with a set I found at Goodwill many years ago. At the time I had a Haviland set in white. Still have the platter the rest sold at a yard sale. Since then I've added and added and friends and family have gifted some nice pieces too. I love all your white, and the brown and white creamer you have on your blog photo is adorable.

  3. stunningly pretty photos! I gasped when I saw your tea cups! I have a collection that I started about 18 years ago... I had an "ah-ha" moment then that hospitality is served so much more beautifully in a pretty cup... and then having 4 daughters that just had to have 'tea with Daddy' when they were little, we have added to our collections along the way. so pretty

  10. Hi Natalie, thanks so much! I usually find tea cups here and there sort of seperated onsies if you will. Goodwill, yard sales, or antique shops, however not in a full set. Also over the years friends and family have gifted me items here and there. Here's a tip though... check department store catalogs as well as your local Marshalls, Big Lots, and Ross. They often have full sets of red and white, blue and white or multi florals. They're new, but from the same older china companies. Often for $40.00 or $50.00 a set, which is still a steal in my book.
