Blue and White Weekend


Good morning!
 I do not know about you but it has been a couple of blue days here with the rain and the wind. Hopefully today it will stop and the sun will come out if only for a bit. 


I have been collecting lately, a little white and blue here, a little blue and white there. One at a time, each a different pattern, a different story. Some perfect, some crazed and chipped. 


Oddly enough I have yet to find a place to display my little treasures. I just like collecting them. 


Are you a collector of blue and white transferware or oriental ware? 


 Do you display it or use it? 


 I actually use the cups and a few of the saucers, others are too old and too fragile to use. But oh so pretty to look at. 




I hope that your day is filled with blue skies and wonderful times with family and friends!

If you feel like adding a little sweet to brighten your day I made some over the top Rolo Brownies! The recipe is at Once Upon a Chocolate Life.

  1. I don't have any blue and white, don't know why as I really like it. No room on the boat I guess :-)
    Have a wonderful weekend Elizabeth.

  2. Good morning sweet thing! WE TOO are battling the clouds and cold air. My basil is not doing well, for it needs sun and warmth!

    I heard you all were bracing yourselves for more storm activity, and we here are being reminded of tornado weather season, so let's see what this summer really looks like. In the meantime, beautiful blues can be admired and there is always time for some chocolate in our lives! BE WELL, Anita

    1. Hello my dear!

      I hope that you have a safe weekend! Tornados are very scary so be careful. If you so see some sun enjoy it!

  4. I`m a big fan of blue and white transfer-ware. It`s my favorite thing to find in shops. You have some beautiful pieces and I think you should try to use it as much as you can. Thankfully, people seem to be getting away from putting all their `treasures`away in a drawer. Deb

  5. Elizabeth, I love blue and white. The combination is so calming. I have a collection of cups and saucers. I received my paternal grandmother's and my mother's collection. I have added to it through the years, and started a collection for my daughter. Unfortunately, all but a few favorite pieces are boxed up.

    Rollo brownies... Yummy!

  6. Oh my goodness, those Brownies, yum!!

    I love blue & white too....I have some dinner plates, a teapot & a couple of other bits & pieces that were my grandmother's. I use the dinner plates every day....although it took me while, I kept them in a cabinet but I thought it was just nice to use them as she did and so out they came.

    I love your blue & white teacups aren't they?

    Have a lovely week-end Xx
