I so enjoyed this month's issue of "Victoria" Magazine that it inspired me to change the top of the credenza in the dining room. Some of these pieces had been out before the holidays, but I had not taken the time to really set things back up in an orderly fashion.
So, during naptime yesterday I gathered these treasures up and arranged them. The willoware platter had been on the counter for a few weeks with our fresh fruit on it. It's so much easier to remember to snack on the fruit when it is visible.
The little creamer and teacups were my Grandmother's when she was a child. They have been on display above my kitchen cupboards, but I moved them to join the others and add some contrast in size as the two tureens are large.
My favorite color is blue and I've loved the Blue Willow pattern forever, so it was a great surprise when the owners' of this tureen gave it to me after I had admired it several years ago. (Thank you, Aunt Linda, for sending it on to me!!!!) The platter was from them as well. Amazing.
This Flow Blue tureen/covered dish was something Sweetheart and I found at an auction quite some time ago.The inside design is quite lovely.
