Last weekend we visited Normandy to see the American Cemetery, Omaha Beach, Juno Beach, Sainte Mere Eglise and Carentan. It was a great trip for all of the historical things we wanted to do and see. I also got to visit 2 vide grenier, 2 brocante warehouses, and a thrift store. I posted several photos on Instagram of my shopping adventures. I had some amazing finds and here is just one that I would like to share. This beautiful little cake stand was tucked away at a table at a vide grenier. A vide grenier is like a french garage sale. The town we went to had at least 100 families each with their own table set up. There were a lot of baby clothes and gear, kitchen gear, and tools. Hidden amongst the other stuff were treasures just waiting to be found. I had stopped at this table to look at a silver tea pot. After asking the price and deciding to pass on the tea pot I spotted this plate.
I love brown transfer ware, and this one was a no brainer for me.
I love the pattern, the color and this plate is in perfect condition. I feel like I won the lottery.
Do you have a favorite color of transfer ware?
