Here is my recipe for irresistibility: Take a plain, mundane object and apply a 1940s water slide decal. The result? Instant vintage appeal!
What can I say... I'm a sucker for almost anything bearing a vintage decal. Are you?

Love it! But where do you typically get the decals?

Be still my heart Susan! I want the cherry decal. Where O Where do I find these? Your right a vintage decal adds class. :)

Most of the pieces shown in this post have the original decals that were placed there by ladies back in the 1940s. Every now and then, I'll add my own — usually an old Meyercord decal that I sometimes find at estate sales or flea markets. If you search for them on eBay, you're sure to find some.

Thanks Susan, I feel better now. I just knew you were swamped with decals. LOL.
I will hunt for the cherries.

Yes, I love decals too and use them farily often. I put a couple small fruit decals on my kitchen door (that has a window). And then I found two plain, metal recipe boxes and put decals on those. They turned out so cute. I planned on selling them, but couldn't part with them when i got done! I've also found my decals at the thrift store or ebay.

Oh, yeah I'm a sucker for vintage decals, too. I bought a bunch of packs several years back but the first decal fell apart, from age I guess. Instead, I bought a few reproductions on eBay and used those.

Do you know the name of your teapot pattern. I have some of this china and would like to add more but don't know the name of it. Mine says 'sunnyside' and 'Japan' on the underside. If you know of it by any other name I would love to have that information. Love your website. thank you

Vicky~ My teapot is marked Japan and "Sunnyside" on the bottom as well. I don't know any more about it... except that it is super sweet!
