I love blue and white and this setting is gorgeous. Half of my home is blue and white. It is a combination that I never tire of. Your tablecloth is a wonderful backdrop for all your lovely blue pieces. ~~Sherry~~

You have set a beautiful tea table! I love your blue and white tea cup and saucer. It looks so pretty and it seems to be quite a generous size. I love big cups too, more tea!

I can see 'feeling blue' doesn't have to be a bad thing...A lovely setting, Lady Katherine, and I would most definitely like one of your blueberry muffins, thank you.

The tea set is beautiful, as well as the cups; I do like their shapes. The tablecloth adds a special charm.

Thank you for sharing your lovely items.
Have a glorious day,

Very very pretty. I have a soft spot for blue transferware and blue willow. You can do so much with it - - formal, informal, all blues, mix in color. I have Allertons Blue Willow and never tire of it. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Neighbor,
I came to visit from Between Naps on the Porch. I love your blue and white tablescape. I'm looking for some more blue and white cups and saucers and maybe some small blue dishes like the beautifully shaped ones in your post.

Hi again! The blue goblets in my post are Fenton Empress. I just found two replacements on eBay. If you go that route be careful, it also comes in a Williamsburg blue...more turquoise...pretty, but not cobalt. It might take some time to pick up a whole service. I've also found a clean line cobalt goblet with a clear stem at Dollar Tree, of all places. I was able to get the manager to put me in touch with their main facility to order all that I wanted when they didn't have it in stock in the store. Also, I noticed that Mikasa has introduced a blue in their French Countryside pattern recently. I have that goblet in the clear. It
is a wonderful goblet. I hand wash it even though I'm told that it can go in the dishwasher. Hope this helps your search. Cherry Kay
