Teacup Tuesday, November Browns

When November moves in, I think of turkeys and browns along with the autumn oranges and scarletts. I think finding brown dishes at a reasonable price is difficutl right now because I was told that brown is an "in" decorator color after being shunned for long while. These two cups I picked up at a flea market last year.
These browns blend with two brown peacock mugs and plate that I picked up a couple of years ago in Wisconsin. They also go well with a Brown Betty tea pot and the brown and white plates my mother-in-law recently gave me from her own hutch.


Two other new cups were picked up at a flea market. These blue and whites are not my favorite Blue Willow pattern nor are they antiques. But I liked them, thought they will blend well, and I intend to use them this winter for broths and light soups to go with sandwiches.

I especially like the brown peacock cups! Brown is not a favorite shade of mine for decorating, but I am coming to appreciate the various shades of brown in textiles and china. Your post certainly helped, I love these!

I like your historical Meakin cup and saucer and the lovely peacock mugs and plate. I'll have to look up the Fair Winds pattern - it sounds intersting.

Your Blue Willow plate is also nice - I have a set of Churchill Willow ware in pink.

I was always a pastel girl -till I moved into the late autumn of my years and now I am finding a need for more balance and warmer colors.

I love your brown transferware. and the peacock is beautiful.
