Blue & White Ceramics

Lets talk Blue & White Ceramics-
I have always loved anything Blue & White. 
I used to say blue was my favorite color but over the years, I decided all colors are my favorites. 
Green, red, yellow and yes! I consider white a color also - all shades of any color. 

I keep going back to Blue & White. Wonder why?
I ask myself and self answers 
"because it is fabulous."  
I found the above picture of a blue & white kitchen in a magazine years ago.
Those are trumpe l'oeil, plates, books, various things behind the wire fronted cabinets. Isn't this amazing?

This is the Fabulous Blue & White kitchen through a photographer's lens

Love these vases + ones seen in the mirror on the wall at other end of the room.

Above are two, of a set of four candle sticks, given to me many years ago by friends
"The Ladies" as I call them always ready to shed light on a table.
Oh, I can't forget Henney Penney my chicken!

And a classic brass topped ginger jar. 

In my humble opinion, expensive blue & white can be put with inexpensive pieces to make a stunning group.
So start collecting that Blue & White and enjoy!
 I am always delighted to hear of your blue & white creations.
