Blue and White Transferware

           The thing I love best about the summer is eating outside. It reminds me of our trip to Italy when we ate every meal outside. The Italians know how to slow down and enjoy their food. Every meal was leisurely and enjoyable. When I move our meals to our deck in the summer I am brought right back to Northern Italy. The world seems to slow down. The air smells cleaner and the sun warms your soul. Sharing a meal becomes more than eating it becomes a special time. A sharing of ourselves, a scared time. It is truly a time we break bread with one another.
              Today I decided to set the mood for a special breakfast on the deck by setting the table with
Blue and White English Transferware. The  pattern is Old Britain Castle by Johnson Brothers. I just love this china!




  1. I love Johnson Bros. china too. I remember wondering when the waiter would bring the check, it was at least 2 hours for every meal!

  2. I know Lisa! You would forget you had to pay!
