Happy Monday!

Can you believe we’re on the cusp of October? Where did September go?

I took some time out to enjoy a little fall nesting in Potting Shed

and to celebrate my favorite season.

I’m a lover of brown transferware and ironstone anytime of year,

but fall is when it really shines.

Limelight Hydrangeas have begun their fall metamorphosis and the blooms

 will continue to burnish and deepen to a bronzy-hue.

the transferware and white pumpkins.

    Sweet nesting in the Potting Shed~

      Love brown and white, so calming for fall, mixing perfectly with every color. We are back in a heat wave with critical fire weather, but you still can feel the fall slant with that lovely golden light … And heat! Got to play on the new barn patio today, Scotts building me a hutch by a picnic table, just to have an outdoor spot to enjoy the seasons delights me so, not as fun as your indoor shed, but close enough until I get a greenhouse!

      Your love of limelight is spilling over, never grown them, just other varieties, decided to edge my nursery with them for a lovely curved border, excited as new projects tumble forward, now is the fun part as I get down to play areas with decorating and fun in mind on smaller scales 😍

    Love the table setting with the bird cottage and the twig flatware.

    Happy nesting, Mary. Sigh…beautiful brown transferware, your collection is amazing! The bird cottage is adorable and the twig flatware is perfect. I am so glad we still have Pier 1 on line. Happy Monday ♥️

    I’ll have a cuppa your hydrangeas and transferware ANY time, Mary! I adore brown transferware too, but so far, have not ventured into the deep abyss of the tubs storing the bulk of mine. Autumns Delight is my favorite, if I had to choose. I was looking at your source list, and sighing over the fact that Pier1 is gone, and then I read Pam’s comment. !! Indeed, they are getting a fresh start with online exclusively – yippee! That made my day. Well, that and your potting shed visual party. Thanks!

    I love brown transferware too. I always enjoy your potting shed posts. My favourite piece of transferware in your post is the small pitcher with the wheat on it. Do you know the make and pattern of that one?

    • September 28, 2020 at 9:41 am

      Hi Diane, The wheat patterned sauce boat is marked ‘T & R Boote, Harvest’. I added a photo of the manufacturer’s mark. Thank you for your visits ♥

      Hi Mary Happy Monday! I always take a mini getaway with your post. They are so appreciated….I too am a lover of Iron Stone and brown transfer not to mention fall is my favorite season. Thanks for all you do give us a smile each and every day.

    Im so in love with brown transferware, Mary, but especially in the Fall. Your bird cottage is darling on your tablescape. Happy Autumn to you, Mary! 🍁

    The transferware is so beautiful paired with the fading limelight hydrangeas and your bird cottage is absolutely wonderful. So glad your temps are cooling and you can happily play in your Potting Shed, it’s sheer delight Mary!

      Mary, What a wonderful way to begin an early fall week. The hydrangeas and brown transferware fit the occasion perfectly. I love the cute birdhouse! You have a wonderful collection. We’re loving the fall weather and have been nesting by decorating the porch and mantel for Halloween. I, too, can’t believe October is upon us! Happy Monday! Clara ♥️🍁🎃

    Just love your display of transferware with tHe limelight hydrangeas, a favorite of mine and your charming bird house. My daughter loves anything vintage and because of the way you use it I have decided to start her a collection of various patterns. I recently found a place setting of Johnson Brothers Staffordshire Bouquet and plan to give it to her for her birthday along with an outing to find more transferware. Thanks to your inspiration Mary we will enjoy the dish hunting adventure.

    Hi Mary, the dinnerware is beautiful and I love the Twig silverware. Think of you often and hope you are well. I enjoy looking at your beautiful photos the best in Blogland!

  13. September 28, 2020 at 11:22 am

    I always enjoy when you share your collections in the Potting Shed…so many lovely patterns in the brown transfer ware. I actually put a bunch of brown in my shop…as I have to start getting the quantity of dishes I have under control. Very much enjoyed your collection though!

    So pretty! Love transferware and ironstone. I have sets that you have and use mine everyday. That bird house is cute. I get excited when I see a post with you in the Potting Shed…

  19. September 28, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Oh! So much too love here. The brown transfer ware is superb and with the limelights it’s perfection. I also love that centerpiece cottage. It’s all lovely. Let alone that it’s all in your awesome potting shed. Thanks so much for sharing and the inspiration.

    XO- MaryJo

    Brown transferware is my absolute favorite color, and Johnson Bros does it so beautifully. Love seeing all your pieces mixed together. Hope you’re having a lovely Fall, Mary!

    What a pretty fall setting! The white pumpkins look so good next to the brown and white transferware. I was thinking the other day, we will soon be getting out our Tom Turkey plates and I love them. Wonder if TJMaxx will have a new version of Tom this year?
    The sweet bird cottage is precious, always enjoy a visit to the garden shed. My 2 hydrangeas just have pretty leaves, no blooms, but I am sure they don’t receive 6 hours of sun, have been thinking I may move the smaller one to the front yard where it would get more sun and then maybe bloom. I can always hope, ha. 🍊🍂
