Hello, my name is Paige. I’m a Transferware Lunitic , raised by a Transferware Lunitic.
My Mamma was a collector.
It is a long and ponderous list. Let’s just suffice it to say that she loved old things. She truly appreciated things that had stood the test of time. When I was ten years old she bought a old house, a white Cape Cod on a few acres of land out in the country and began, with sweat and Duck Tape, to make it our home.
Among her various collections one particularly stands out in my mind:
Her Blue Willow
She began this collection when I was in my early teens with a few pieces from our local grocery store. Well, she had good taste and picked an absolutely timeless pattern that really complimented her oak antique furniture pieces she loved so much.
Over the years that followed she added to her collection with antique pieces of Blue Willow then a little Flow Blue and some Delft Pottery.
Years later I would give her Johnson Brothers pieces as well as these little guys.
I think this particular pattern is way more versatile than people give it credit for. My mother used it on just about every occasion. My favorite was at Christmas when she would use it with red. Not a lot of red either. Usually just a big red Poinsetta in the middle of the table in a tureen.
Personally, I think it looks just perfect with her pink rhododendrons.
Have a great week,
Blogs I love!
