Blues and Whites

Hello Everyone -

It has been over a week since I posted and the time has just flown.  It seems we are all saying that more and more!  It couldn't be because we are getting older or because we are enjoying our lives and what we are doing so much.  I truly enjoy my life with my family. 

On to the title of my post.  Everyone has been mentioning different blues and whites.  I thought I would look around and see what blues and whites I have.  It is amazing what I have.  Not everything is blue and white mix.  I have some solid blues, many different colors of blue and some things with just blue in them and some things that are blue and white mixes.  Here are a few of the pictures of what I have.  I noticed that I don't seem to have anything that is solid white.

These are my only  two pieces of flow blue.  It is very old and very delicate.  It belonged to my husband's aunt
My blue and white chicken salt and pepper shakers.
I have 4 of these bowls.  This is the largest of them.  I found the smallest many years ago and didn't have the money to buy it back then.  Sure wish I had it now.  I have this thing for pottery.  I can't seem to get enough of it.
Some of my blue and white granite ware.  I found the basin at a garage sale for only a few dollars many, many years ago.  It is in great shape on the inside also, which is rare these days.  The pie plate is solid blue.
These are some of my speckled blue and white pieces.  I have 3 nesting bowls, 2 pitchers and a sugar bowl.  I got the 4 coffee cups at Cracker Barrel.
These are inkwells I got on a trip to Philadelphia.

My blue Fiesta Ware.

A blue pitcher I found at a flea market.

Some of my favorite, my Folk Art Pfaltzgraff.  I have a service for 12 with lots and lots of accessories.   I even have the stainless steel flatware with the Folk Art design in it.  I have 3 different sets of the blue glasses with the Folk Art design.  My husband doesn't want me to use it any longer since it is no longer made.  You can find pieces to it, if you are lucky.  I've noticed lots of people collect this.
My Bennington Pottery
More blue and white speckled items, salt and pepper shakers.
This picture shows another set of blue and white dishes that I have plus a blue bowl and several other blue items
I hope you have enjoyed seeing just some of my blue and white items.  This is not all but enough for now.
Let me see what you have in the way of blues and whites.  These two colors can be very addicting.
Be back later.

Oh my! LOVE, Love, LOVE your blue & whites! I have some, but not as much as you. I have the Folk Art pottery too, and also a set of three of those "pie-crust" rimmed bowls. I found them at three different places at three different times! LOL!

When I have more time, I think this would make a great challenge!

Have a great week Maxine!

You have some truly beautiful blue and white items. I really like pottery and granite ware. The blue and white display in your cupboard is really nice too. I think the quilts look great with the dishes. Thanks for letting us see. Blessings to you.
