Blue Willow Transferware Tureen


So, let me ask you a question...
Do you do "Blue and White"?
Do you have an obsession with 
Blue and White Urns, Ginger Jars, Tureens, Transferware,
and all things Blue?




Me?...not so much.


I have some blue transferware,
not because it's blue, but because it's transferware...
until I found this old Blue Willow Tureen for about $10 at a Flea Market.
(sans lid)
Then, I had to rethink my position...
on Blue.



 I've only used this a few times, and it's always in the Fall;
when I can add Pumpkins and Bittersweet.
There's something about the orange that makes it work for me.



It's because orange and blue are opposite
 of each other on the color wheel.

The warm contrasts with the cool,
and that makes it work for me.

















I'm not knowledgeable about the Mark here.
But I know it's English.
anyone out there an officiando?
I know Nancy is.
Here's a link to some information on the start of Blue Willow



So I'm embracing my Blue Willow for Autumn




Next 8 images can be found on my Pinterest page, 























I see how beautiful it is. 
I admire it on other people's blogs and homes,
but I guess it's just not "me".

I believe that we surround ourselves with decor that compliments 
what we "look good in", as in our clothing, makeup, and hair color.

And I rarely wear blue other than Navy and Denim.
(and I never want blue hair...)

So what about you?
Is "Blue" your color?
