Transferware Patterns number in the many thousands.  Here are a few of my favorites.

I started my Dishy News blog on January 17, 2013.  During the past two years, I have published 173 blog posts.  As I said last year, this is a personal blog about transferware patterns and shapes as well as my life.  I was introduced to transferware by my mother and grandmother, so this is a lifelong love and learning experience.
As my readership has grown, it has been interesting to see which posts are popular.   Here are  links to my readers' favorite posts.

  1. I love them all!
    I recently saw a set of printed jugs featuring Punch and Judy - for some reason I didn't buy them and when I changed my mind later in the day, of course, they had gone. I need a plate printed with "Strike While The Iron's Hot!"

  2. Hi Nilly,

    I need a plate with that saying too!
