It's Monday and time for "Blue Monday" -- come and visit Smiling Sally and see what other Blue Monday treats she has in store.
Every one knows I love blue and white. Any and all patterns but mostly English. I personally think that all blue and white work well together.
There is blue and white old and new on the table this morning -- and more than one maker as well -- from Spode's Blue Room (reproductions of the wonderful English transferware) to Johnson Brothers Indies to some Blue Willow (bought and brought back from England) to a wee Blue Willow cream pitcher and sugar bowl -- perfect for two.
But there is enough blue in the dishes and so placemats and napkins ARE NOT blue!
And to make this Monday even bluer -- blueberries atop the cereal!
I find it hard to pass up a piece of blue and white -- whether it is china for the table or vases or ginger jars for tabletops.
We have some blue and white that's really old but yet we have some newer pieces as well and ALL of it works well together.
I think I love blue and white because it goes with so many colors and there is something classy about transferware and oriental bowls.
