Blue and White China

Hello everyone,

I am going to join in with Cielo at the House in the Roses today for Show your Cottage Monday.

So today I am showing some of my blue and white china that I keep in this little cupboard in our porch. I think I have china in almost every room of the house. It must be my form of art!

Like pretty much all my china,this has been collected over time-a piece here and a piece there.

This little Dutch shoe belonged to my Mom.

The teapot ,cream and sugar bowl also belonged to my Mom who was born in Holland.

The soup tureen came from an auction sale a few years ago.

Well, that is all that this little cupboard can hold but go and visit Cielo for a peek in more cottages.

Thank you for visiting me,

Carolyn

Such beautiful Delft ware

That was a nice post, Carolyn. Even though you have different blue and white pieces, purchased here and there over the years, they all go together so perfectly. Great job! Sincerely, Susan

Enjoyed seeing all your blue, and the mosaic of the beautiful houses (for some reason could not comment under them.) Hope spring is showing its face up there!

Carolyn your blue and white china is gorgeous and looks wonderful in this cupboard. ♥

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Carolyn.....That is a good way to think about it..china as your "art". It must be mine too because I get comments on how much of it I use on my walls. I think it is a perfect substitute for framed art or just plain pictures. YOU have a wonderful "art" collection!~Patti

Carolyn, today I just bought some nice ceramics table ware by the Parisian ceramic house, Astier de Villatte...Rustic white glazed terracotta with an impossibly romantic baroque feel. I will try to showcase them in my next blog :)

Lacy said...

I love the tea pot with the little blue house on it!

Paula said...

Dear Carolyn,

You have a beautiful collection of blue and white china! The cupboard you keep it in is lovely! How wonderful you have things that belonged to your mom.

Love,

Blue and white is our favourite! It is a form of art - I'm always on the lookout for new pieces at VV.

From the Kitchen said...

Just saw on Podso's blog that you will soon be off to Charleston. She's a lovely old city. We enjoyed living there for a number of years and always love going back. Savannah, too, is wonderful. Y'all have a nice visit!

Best,
Bonnie

This blue and white china is fabulous, Carolyn! You have the most beautiful china I've ever seen (I know I told you before, but I'm totally astounded by the beautiful pieces you own!).
Happy Easter and have fun in Savannah,
Monicax.

Carolyn, I missed this one earlier so I've popped in from Food w/ Style. Loved seeing all your blue and white in this cupboard. Can one have too many of these beautiful ceramics? Definitely ART!
