Unique Blue

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.

  1. Hello Mrs Shockley
    I just wanted to let you know how much I love our blog. I first saw it a couple of weeks ago, and have been trying to read as many of your earlier blogs as possible. I enjoy each and every one of them. I also love blue and white dinnerware. I have a set that I have not used for a while. I'll have to get them out and use them for dinner tomorrow.

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by! I do enjoy when readers leave comments and tell me their thoughts. I hope you do pull out that dinnerware. You should use it, why not?
