~blue plate special~

I have to admit, the only blue plates I have in my own home are some I use on the 4Th of July.
However, I do think these beautiful pieces are so gorgeous!
I love all the different patterns and how great they look together even when they don't match exactly!

OMG, no blue plates? I use vintage and antique blue willow dishes everyday, no use "saving" them. Everything tastes better too!

I adore old plates and the ones you chose are very pretty!

I have one blue plate that we use everyday... it's our funiest plate cause the rest is a correl white set (that I hate!) but it's not ours, so when we move I'll get the pleasure to buy -some- sets *cough* at least not white.

So pretty. I have my grandmothers old every day dished and they are blue.

I am starting a NEW Mr. Linky party. It will begin on Aug 10th so everyone will have a week and a half to think about their first post. I have a poll up for votes on which button should be the new button. The "party" is called The Knock Off Knock Out-where THRIFTY meets creative sensation. Go over and learn more about the new weekly event and I would appreciate if you would cast your vote and HELP pick the new button design and its the last week for the July GIVE-A-Way, if you would like to be a part of that event..

I have some old "finds" amd some fun finds at Home Goods and Marshall's! They often have the Johnson Bros. Old English Castles and others. I pick them up one at a time, because they don't have to match-my little $3.99 treat! Blue plates with white...ahhhh!

I love the flow blue plates of the first image. The style has a watery effect that lends a sense of romance to them. You can find some lovelies on ebay at great prices too!!!

Love the mother of pearl over the plate, simple yet magnificent.

I bought sooo many of those blue spode plates from the spode factory when i lived in england - sadly, they sit in my cupboard all stacked up along with the other thousands of dishes i bought there. although, i don't use them that often - I am glad I have them. One day I will blog about my trips to the potteries in England.
