Dinner for one- red transferware

It is Tablescape Thursday with Susan from Between Naps on the Porch. Check out all the great ideas from all the gang. There are a lot of beautiful tablescapes just waiting to be seen. I took the lazy route this week. I did not want to take down last week Tablescape, therefore I made a TT for one. I use some misc. red transferware. Don't you just LOVE transferware? Yes, you do!!! In any color too!!
I know....needs a candle or flower arrangement. :)

Teapot was purchased from eBay a few years ago. The cream and sugar are Memory Lane, and I have had these pieces before I was even married.

The stemware is Johnson Brothers' British Castles.....Christmas present from moma.

Yes, I know....out of order. This is a cake plate from my dear friend, Kathryn.

These plates came from a local antique store a few years ago. This is a plate of Betsy Ross. Do you know who she is? Scroll down and you will find out, but you should already know! I have some more plates to this Historical America Collection.

Well, this was my tablescape for this week. Thank you for stopping by. Be sure to check out all the other great will not be disappointed. :)


  1. I love the red transferware. Well yes, I do love transferware in any color. I have been trying to find affordable pieces in brown and white, but all of the colors are hard to find. Love your pretty tablescape for one. It is lovely. Thanks for stopping by my TT and your gracious comments. I really appreciate it. You asked about the chargers, I found them a few months back at Home Goods. They only had 4 and I havn't been able to find more. Bummer. I do love the shape. Hope you will also participate in the Cloche Party on the 19th. Be sure to check my sidebar for all the details. Hugs, Marty

  2. Red transferware is one of my favorites! Beautiful tablescape. I want that teapot!!

    Thanks for sharing


  3. What a pretty toile cake plate...I bet that friend named Kathryn has good taste! :) haha I love your red charger with this. I only have gold and silver chargers. Your dishes look lovely atop the lacy placemat too. Are the sugar and creamer made by Royal? They have the same style as my Currier and Ives sugar and creamer that are made by Royal and Diane's Colonial Homestead sugar and creamer that are also made by Royal.

  4. I also shared a single serving tablescape. Yay!! I do love the red transferware. I don't have any, but red is my choice when I do decide to get some. Love your cake plate. Huggy Hugs!!
