Blue & White dishes & lamps

I have always loved blue & white china or anything really that color. I have  some in my kitchen that I just love. These containers with coffee & tea on them are not perfect.  Also some of the little spice jars don't have their tops. I think the little childs cups & sugar is sweet. downstairs someplace in all my treasures piled in my storage room I have little plates to match the cups. soon as I get my studio room painted I can start moving every thing back in its happy place and find the little plates.
I forgot to mention the little pie bird. I use to have lots of them , got tired of them and sold them.

I still have a little spoon painted with Santa on it in the pepper jar.I just thought he was too cute to stick in a drawer for a year. And can't you just smell the cloves in the cloves jar?

Tapioca jar, I use to love Tapioca pudding when I was a little girl, my grandmother use to cook it and I could have eaten the entire pan full.  

I really like this piece, however the lid is really cracked I have all the pieces and haven't taken the time to fix it. I think I will use that E-6000 glue I use for other projects. I know once you use that on anything it's not going to let go. It will be stuck for good.                                                         

                    Now look at this little sweet teeny  tinny crock I got at an auction last week . Love it.

                                          IT is about the size of a tea cup, I'll show you.

Most of these are on little shelves on each side of my sink, so I can look at them every time I make a pot of coffee or do dishes.

     The chicken my Grandmother Baker  gave me for Christmas a long time ago, Her tail is measuring spoons.                                                                                     

The jewel tea tooth pick holder was from a jewel tea club piece. My Mom & I use to be really into jewel tea dishes. I have an old cabinet downstairs full of Mom's jewel tea dishes.
                  his little tea pot lamp is in my bedroom on my dresser
                                                    Now this spode lamp is on my night stand.

Hope you can't see the dust  below is a few little crocks I got out to take to the flea market but they may have to stay home a little longer. I have lots of crocks but I love them so much. You know what I mean?

  What about this old brown glass Purex bottle? I have thought and  Thought of what I could do with it. It has set outside in a flower bed all summer while I thought of what to do with it. Maybe some one will want it . I was thinking of decorating it with an old newspaper  picture of some kind, or out of an old magazine, like my 1950 Spiegel catalog. then put brown shoe polish over it to make it look older.

Also my jar of old wooden thread spools, I have wanted to make an altered art necklace with a spoon dangling from it somehow I am just thinking what to do as I write.

These are a couple of my yellow crocks just for show & tell. There is a little girl watering her flowers on it , can you see her?

 Well also my Hp pavilion slimline usb  box is dead. It is only 2 years old and the part to fix it which is the mother board is $300.00 plus labor, plus having to wait for some guy in India to mail it to me so hope I make enough money this week end to buy me  a new  computer.  Guess I will be using my neighbors computer or some body that offers to let me use theirs. Wonder if I could go to the library and use theirs? I will call and ask.

  1. Beautiful blue dishes, sweetpeea. I love those kinds of dishes.

  2. You have a wonderful collection of blue and white! So glad you stopped by my blog so I could find yours, too! And I'm looking forward to seeing a pic of your Sissy~ I love pugs! I'm a new follower, too!

  3. Very pretty dishes. I have a question...I have a light blue(the exact color of the largest crock in your picture) crock bowl exactly like the dark blue crock bowl in your picture. Do you know when it was made, by whom and if it has a pattern name? I bought mine at a junk sale in southern California about 15 years ago. Thanks. Lynn

  4. Nice collection of blue and whites, love the brown Purex bottle, I have a couple in my kitchen, they are wonderful! Thanks for sharing!
