Books, books transferware

While browsing the blogging world I came across another fun party to join.  Suzanne from Privet and Holly is having a collections party.  At first I wondered if I actually had a collection of something since my things are not all in the same place but after I really looked around I realized that, yes, I have many collections.  So here we go.......

Books, I have tons of decorating books that I've been 
collecting for years and still love them all.

"They" say that more than 3 is a collection so I guess that makes me a collector of more things than I thought!

Than there's the blue transferware that I can't seem to get enough of.

It's all over my house....every room has sample of my collection or 
should I say obsession.

I can't even tell you which one is my favorite because I have so many that I love!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I'll be linking up with,


  1. Books and Blue transferware..PERFECT!!

  3. Your home is so
    pretty. I just
    love the combination
    of blue with the

    always cozy! Thank

    with my collector's
    party and letting us
    have a little peek
    through your window!

  4. You have a lovely collection you shared. Funny we never really know what we have until we take a good look around.

  5. Marianne, Decorating books and blue and white dishes are two of my favorite things! You have a wonderful collection of both.

  6. I can't think of a better combination than blue transferware and books. I have a set of Liberty Blue dishes that I bought piece by piece on eBay. I just love it. I think it's something that once you are hooked, you're always hooked! Your home is lovely. Hope you get your invite to Pinterest!

  11. Hi Marianne, I love books...we have them everywhere in our cottage. I have an entire wall of books, floor to ceiling, in my sitting room. I just adore them.

    Your blue and white is lovely!
