Show & Tell Friday!!

When we were immersed in the world of chintz
collecting, there was a common phrase used among
"chintzers"... anything that was a pretty little
accent to your chintz, we called a "go-with".




That is why we also collected these darling little
porcelain flowers, to place here and there among
our displays of chintz.


And also, these little china pins...I just love them!


And you can see how they all "go-with"
the pretty floral patterns of chintz china.






Even finicky cats like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Be sure to stop over at

THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME

for more pretties & treasures!

  14. I also love the porcelain flowers, specially displayed amongst your fabulous chintz china, I often get excited when I see the porcelain flowers at a market stall or garage sale, but it's not very often that at a closer look they have no chips or petals missing, such a shame
    Happy "Show and Tell Friday" to you M
