I Love Blue & White



I just can't seem to get away from my love of blue and white. Recently I was very excited to find this gorgeous little still life original oil painting on Etsy by Artist Polly Jones. It just arrived in the mail this week and I am so thrilled with it. I feel like it is a painting of some of my things sitting there on my kitchen bench. My mother has collected blue and white things her entire life and I think her love of blue and white is instilled in me forever!!

Ditto! My mother has always had a passion for blue & white~~it has graced every wall of every home we lived in~~which were many due to her gypsy heart but when I looked at that wall it was always "home". . .we still have a blue & white wall now!

Hi Anna,

not only do we share the same name but we share a strong love of all things blue and white.

The blue and white willow pattern and overall colour scheme has been with my family for generations and we just can't seem to shake it.

I am also a big fan like you of blue and pink.

I'm still finding my way around etsy but congrats on your fabulous purchase :)

Anna :)

I fiund your blog from a favirites list. I am another lover of blue and white. Our everyday china is blue willow. Long after I am gone our kids and grandkids will always think of me whenever they see any blue & white china. I just began blogging but haven't shown any photos of my china except as part of the Christmas decor. Visit me sometime
