Pretty Blue China

I have always had a penchant for blue and white china.
Much of my collection has been handed down to me
by my mother.
Not these pieces though.

I bought this pretty set of blue Mason plates
 at an antique shop in Auckland
for my daughter's birthday!

I very carefully wrapped them in yards of bubble wrap

and carried them with me in my hand luggage
on one of my trips to France.

You're probably wondering why didn't I look for
a set of lovely french china plates in France.
Well I fell in love with these and just had to have them!

I'm joining Sally for Blue Monday
Bernideen for BTTCG Blog Party
Stephanie for Roses of Inspiration

Thank you all for your visits

Take care and

be kind to one another

à bientôt



  1. And very lovely they are, too. I like the distinctive styling of the canister set as well.

  2. Hello, blue is my favorite color so I just love these pretty dishes. Your daughter had a lovely birthday present. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  3. Your blue dishes are simply lovely and oh-so-elegant, my friend. There is something warm and charming about the color blue.

    Have a delightful week, sweet Shane. Love and hugs!

  4. Hello Shane ~
    I share your Love of blue and white.
    Your china pieces are always so lovely.
    It is extra sweet that you carefully transported those gorgeous plates all the way to France for your daughter...she must have been delighted ♥
    Wishing you a Happy March oxo

  5. Lovely china - I think everyone likes blue and white china.

  6. Dear Shane:
    So glad the plates arrived safely and they are so lovely. I love going somewhere and bringing home memories! So glad you shared them.

  7. Is your blue and white pottery Cornish- Ware ? I used to have a few pieces but think they must have got left behind when we moved to France. The pretty porcelain plates are so pretty
    I thought you were going to say they were broken when you opened them. I'm sure your daughter loves them.

  8. Oh how I love pretty blue dishes too. We have kitchen that has white cabinets so we added slate blue color to the walls. It makes me feel happy. Enjoy your week sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

  9. That french china is so pretty. I'm always drawn to blue and white dishes! Hope you have a lovely week.

  10. Love your Mason plates Shane, they are so beautiful. Have a great week. Hugs Shirley

  11. Oh my . . . they are so lovely . . .
    I would have done the very same thing!!!
    I bet your daughter LOVED them too . . .

  12. I have a very hard time passing by anything that's blue and white. Just this weekend I made new - blue - drapes for the bedroom window.
    You daughter must have been thrilled by the plates!

  13. I guess it's no secret I also love blue and white china, These plates are lovely!

  14. Dearest Shane,
    Oh, we have transported tons of china and other breakables across the ocean. In the hand luggage it is very easy. Only nowadays with the weight restrictions that is worse.
    It is a very lovely Mason and I don't blame you.

  15. The plates are gorgeous! I would have to have them too.
    I just know your daughter was thrilled. Now they are back in their home country too.

  16. DEAr Shane, I love your blue China!
    HAppy week to you, my friend,
    Love and hugs and blessings,
    Claudia xo

  17. I'm a sucker for pretty blues. I bet your daughter loved that china!

  18. they are all so pretty and would brighten anyone's day!

  19. I love blue and white dishes but seldom buy them for myself as they just don't "go"in my strawberry-themed kitchen dining area. So pretty though. Love these, especially the milk and sugar jugs in the top photo.

  20. Lovely! I'm sure your daughter loved the Mason plates.

  21. Such pretty plates. I love the shape of them. Blue and white is always a favorite of mine, too.

  22. Blue and White dishes always talk to me
    My sister just gave me a gorgeous 1800's plate
    Love your blue and white stripped canister set

  23. I've always had a love for blue and white dishes too. You found a real treasure with these.
