Blue and white dinnerware adds such a cheerful note to your home. I love my blue and white plates. They look so smart and striking. That is the way I felt when I saw this collection by Burleigh called Blue Calico.
So delicate isn't it?
It's such a hearty pattern.
"Although producing Blue Calico is a time-consuming process, it is truly a labor of love. Because each piece is made by hand and bears the distinctive touch of an individual decorator, collectors know they are getting one-of-a-kind treasures. At a time when most dishes are mass-produced by machines, it is especially poignant to collect a piece that exemplifies the skills of dedicated craftspeople using a process repeated through many generations."
This is not Blue Calico but this vase sure did remind me of the pattern.
This is my blue and white vase that I picked up at Von Maur earlier this year.
It is pretty large and I love the colors. I had to have it shipped from another store and it
took us weeks to find it. I am so glad we did. I believe this could be a beautiful heirloom some day.
I hope you enjoyed this beautiful collection and if you want to view the original article see here.
