Black and White


This summer, at a community yard sale up at the lake...
I found five sets of these lovely black and white cups and saucers.
I snapped a few pics this weekend before we closed up camp.
Even though I looked up the maker and pattern,
  for the life of me,
I can't remember now...
...and of course the cups and saucers are up at the lake house and I am not.
Maybe you know?


Don't you love a black and white palette?


I played around a bit and sat a cup and saucer
 on top of my old porcelain clock face.



Anyway...
I thought perhaps I could use them with my Anthro dishes.  
Do you think it works?

Well, I'm back downstate and am challenging myself
 to get my act together here at home.
Hoping to make some headway, stay focused 
and not get overwhelmed!

More finds to share with you later this week!

Hope your week is going well...
Take care, Laura 
:)

Don't you just love transferware? It is pretty in any color, but looks so rich in black against the creamy shade of china.

The cups and saucers would be so pretty with your other black and white..very dramatic!! Lovely!

I'm a big fan of black and white and I love the cups and saucers. They will make a wonderful addition used with your anthro dishes.

Glad you had a safe trip home.

Such pretty black and white transfer-ware! Perfect for the fall, winter season and would look beautiful mixed with color (Anthropologie). Black and white is timeless ;)

The black and white florals are gorgeous - even though black and white they still manage to be very soft and feminine.

Your cups and saucers are charming, and even more so propped on the clock face. I think you are on to something there. Clock face placemats! I want some!!!

Your new blog header is diving as usual. :@

gorgeous pics, even on a cloudy day as today is, they brighten up my day!

Andy's Attic said...

They look great!! I've always loved black and white and decorated with the combo years ago. Then I realized how much I love bright colors. The best thing about b & w is that it goes with any other color!!!

Beautiful Laura! Love the mixes of the pieces.

Judy said...

Oh, I wish I knew the name of the maker for you, because this look is exquisite!

Carole said...

Black and white is so classic and goes with so much. I love your cups and plates together.
I know how you feel about getting your act together. I struggle with it everyday it seems. Good luck to you.

Great find...you do have the best luck at sales!!!
The black & white is very striking...I guess a spot of blue would really set it off...

Cheers!
