Blue Day

I am really blue today.  Not in the unhappy sense, but because I have been washing my china collection,which was very much in need of some attention.

The first thing I started on was my dresser,where I display most of  my blue china collection

Although these china trio's are not really in keeping with the other blue and white china,I am running out of room in the glass fronted kitchen cupboards,so for the moment this will be their home.

I have collected quite a bit of this pattern, I think it is the onion pattern.
I find it quite reasonably priced when I find it.

I love this little collection of animals, especially the little frog and the smiling baby cow.

The soup terrine was given to me by my son when he was a teenager,which is a long time ago,so I treasure it.

I know, I didn't straighten up the plate before I got out the camera.   Not to worry, I did later.

I bought the vintage tin on Ebay and it has an aged patina,which is why it has faded to another shade of blue.

I am playing around with the arrangement to get the right look

More blue and white on the kitchen cupboard shelves

I use this lovely willow box, for paper napkins.  It fits them perfectly.

I was lucky enough to find some willow pattern vintage tea towels.

Some of the collection has to go onto the walls

I am visiting the following parties in the coming week

House in the Roses
A Delightsome Life
Rose Chintz Cottage
 Tea Cups and Tea Things
My Romantic Home
Kristens Creations
and a little bit of pink for Pink Saturday at
 How Sweet the Sound


                                                                                           Tea Time Tuesday at Rose Chintz Cottage

Some pretty pink china, which I use,  I so enjoy a cup of tea in a china cup.  Why not join me after all that china washing and arranging.

A bit more Pink

 My one and only Black Boy Rose.  This bush is not a prolific bloomer in our garden,but when we do get a bloom, it is always beautiful and the colour gorgeous.

I hope you  all have a lovely week.  xx  jeanetteann 

PS. As you can see on the rose picture above,I have gone back to jeanetteann instead of jeanette odonnell.  I think it is more friendly somehow.

First let me say your blue & white spice/cannister set is to die for! I love it!
You are killing me with the flowers! I love my gardens but, it is winter here and everything has faded. I'm already dreaming of spring!
I had the pleasure of meeting your sweet daughter.... Kerry. She visited my shop. She was so kind to write and let me know she rec'vd her order. I am honored to have you both as clients. Please let me know when you rec'v your order.
She is as sweet and cheerful as you are.
Will visit again soon!

Your blue and white china is gorgeous and I can see how the "chore" washing it up would be a pleasure.
