Blue and White Love Affair


As part of my mom's kitchen remodel, we are putting up a couple 
of open shelves.  Mom has an extensive collection of 
blue and white pieces that she has been collecting over the years.




We pulled some of them out to decide which ones she wants
to use.



I love this little tea pot and cup for one.  I bought it for her
at Lord & Taylor when I was living in NYC.




She has pieces with unique shapes and patterns and they
all seem to work together.




Love this ginger jar.




And this one too.  I don't know where she picked up these tole planters.
She loves to shop for accessories.


Please consider contributing to those whose lives have been
affected by hurricane Sandy.  Thank you!
(Please feel free to copy and post on your blog.)


Have a wonderful day!

Joining ~



Bentley ~ the little trick or treaters were so cute last night
don't you think?  I know you were so happy to see them!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  14. Susan, what a lovely collection your mom has. I too love the pieces. Your sweet cup for one is precious. So well though out to go with her many pieces. I bet you had a hard time choosing what to display. Tell Bentley hey and that our sweet yellow bird sits sunning itself in our window and that I think of you both daily! xo marlis

  16. I really enjoyed looking at your collection. I love blue and white dishes as well, and have quite a collection of them. At the moment though, in my new house, blue and white just does NOT work with the neutral color scheme. :-(

  23. Just look at al your beautiful blueware. Your Mother surely did collect many lovely pieces. I'm glad you have created a place to display them. I, too, am a blueware lover. My husband has brought me pieces from all around the world in his business travels. I love displaying them, too.
