Brown Transferware nice for Thanksgiving

I have a large collection of brown transferware.Like many of You, My collection started in the mid- seventies when Johnson Brothers Friendly Village was so popular.
 Later, I received My paternal Grandmothers Johnson Brothers British Castles set,a gigantic set. It grew from there.Any of the Brown Transferware looks best near Thanksgiving.I still love it and appreciate it. I have stopped using it though since My daughters took over the holidays. What I would LOVE is just one Lavender Transware plate though,those on the other hand are very difficult to find.I should really any time now start dividing it all up by 4s ( daughters). I keep putting it off because I'm almost positive it will end up in their garages,maybe for Years.

This time of Year I always start thinking about giving My collection to My daughters.What if they fight over who gets what or just sale it or throw it away.I know to many of You this must sound petty or immature but that's why I do avoid it. On a cheerier note......
I was 26 when I first saw a face that looks exactly like this one.That was 36 years ago.It's hard to believe for Me that I got to see this face once more.It's like being young all over again, looking into the baby face of this little sweetheart's Mommy, My daughter Annette.One blessing out of thousands 
to be Thankful for.Happy Fall play time-Denise

Looking forward now.

To more peaceful times,introspective times and
thankful times.
Once the season really cools off in So Ca.,

this mood sets in.
Nesting, even though I truly nested long long ago,and...
I feel like Tea Time  too with kindred spirits.We'll stitch, sew, hook and chat. What fun.  
Here I am late in life-62 and if I was offered a baby ,I would take it.I cozy on down easily.
How about You?

I'm looking forward to the Holidays now that Halloween is almost past.Most of My Christmas shopping is done and waiting to be wrapped. I lift a cup of cheer-Coffee that is- to Nov.Dec. Jan. and Feb, those months My spirit gets excited and I feel as a Child  and want to play house and then I do play house till Spring hits and then I want to run in the fields. Just looking ahead.  Denise.....Joining Sandi for Tea

Music Starts playing early in the day in preparation for,THE PARTY.....
"What's the matter what's the chatter in the moonlight ? What's the creepen and a crawlen that You hear? Must be Willard don't You know,He's a thriller don't You know, and a terror round these parts round these parts. He walks around in His UNDERWEAR,His great delight simply is to scare.........AAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!! " Song by-David Gulino-My Daddy-1950s...

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
