Playing with my new purchases. Trying to decide how to display them. Mixing new (Anthropologie) with old (Depression glass). I decided I needed the white plates in the background to show off the new aqua blue glass.
Made mullions for the door to the #cornercabinet . The horizontals will line up with the shelves to give it a nice look. It was my first attempt at them. Got some chipout, but nothing I can’t fix. Swipe for process shots. #flamebirch @freud_tools
I added a "few" red and cream bottle brush trees to this corner cabinet - I have a thing for bottle brush trees! My late mother-in-law gave me these dishes that belonged to my husband's great-grandmother. I think the teapot, sugar bowl and creamer have such a lovely shape and the blue is so deep and vibrant with a bit of gold running through the pattern. Can you imagine a table set with this?! I know they were well used because the gold rim on the only surviving dinner plate is so worn. The stories these dishes could tell ... I would LOVE to know more about this pattern if anyone is familiar with the mark on the back. #bottlebrushtrees#redtrees#bluechina#familyheirloom#cornercabinet
