Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Teapots and teacups

You know of my love for blue and white transferware so naturally, my teapots would be blue and white. The old sideboard in the breakfast room is the perfect place for these treasures. Along with a Spode covered vegetable bowl.
Behind the glass doors are my blue and white teacups and saucers. On the shelf below, a tea caddy. With a pot of water just to the boil, the breakfast room becomes a tea room!
As much as I love the tureen on top, I yearn for a Spode Blue Italian one but they are so pricey that I will continue to yearn for one!

It's Blue Monday over at Smiling Sally's. Stop by and see everyone's choice of blue!

Very pretty! Blue and white china always looks so good with antiques. Have you looked at the antique stores in the Branson area for soup tureens? Last time we were there I saw a lot of pretty china at decent prices.. Hope you have a Very Hapy Christmas!!
