Pretty Pink Flowers on China

 
 
 
I absolutely love everything about fall.
 
But I needed an eye break
 from pumpkins and acorns and turkeys and leaves.
 
 
But just a tiny respite though,
because I have a lot more autumn to share
before the Christmas season takes over!
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~
 
 
Today I just wanted to share some pretty china florals.
 
I really needed to see show you some pretty PINKS.
 
And pretty florals are never really out of season, are they?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is a very close up of a recent treasured find.
 
I recently found a small sweet vintage set of china
 
4 dinner plates
 4 bread plates
4 fruit bowls
 
 in this pretty colourful floral pattern!


 






I also found this wonderful Bavarian china dinner bell.
 
How I would love to haved lived richly in a lovely manor house 
to ring for tea with this pretty bell anytime I so desired.
 
 
(Yes, I am channeling my Inner Downton Abbey!)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

And I have this thing for antique hand painted
 salt and pepper shakers too.
 
Just look at these lovelies!
 
 
 
 


 




And I love they say VERSAILLES on them -
have you been to that amazing Palais?









 
It is one of the most exquisite things I have ever beheld
when I was able to see it in the late 1990s.

If you haven't see it yet be sure to put going there 
 on your bucket list, as it is absolutely astounding!
 
 
So........
 
What other travel dreams might you have on your list?
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~
 
Thanks for your visit!
 
Have a blessed weekend, friends.

  6. Michele I love your beautiful pieces you have shared today! My hubby and I have been to France and visited Versailles--it's an unbelievable Palais! The beautiful salt and pepper shakers are named well! My hubby and I have many places on our bucket list and intend to start crossing them off the list as he is retiring soon. ♥

  9. That is beautiful china. It's nice to see such pretty large flowers on those pieces. I usually see sweet small flowers on china. My mom watches Downton Abbey and loves it. I haven't been able to see it in its entirety yet though. It looks good.

  10. Well you already know that I love roses.....and anything pink for that matter !
    Yes I have quite a few places on my bucket list. I would love to come over the the States to go flea marketing, I would love to drink tea in Monets Garden and I would love to travel through England sipping tea and buying seriously old antiques that have been on the earth for hundreds of years xo
