Blue and white

I have always loved blue and white china, it just makes me smile and over the last year or so have managed to get a little collection going! It wasn't planned, I just managed to find two Staffordshire china jugs within days of each other and that was it, I knew I had to get more! One of the jugs and the little lidded pot were charity shop finds and the jugs were antique fair buys! The little cups and saucers were a gift from my sister.
The butter dish is my latest addition and is a Cornish kitchen ware one and gorgeous! Thanks to my mother-in-law Mags for this one. They are about to move to Whitstable and whilst sorting out all the antiques in her loft (she used to do antique fairs) she found this one and gave it to me!
Another addition to our kitchen is the gorgeous dresser top style shelf - also a gift from the in-laws! Made especially for us by a carpenter near their current house. Well, I had to have somewhere to display all the china and it is brilliant for my cookery books too!



lovey stuff, if only I knew as I almost purshed a vey large blue and white jug in a chartiy shop in Epping yesterday!
