What's in your blue and white?

Hi!  Today I am linking up with Jennifer at The Pink Pagoda for her Blue and White Bash.
You don't want to miss the other links either...lots of inspiration!
Today I am showing you how I use my blue and white porcelain in everyday life.


I love the dragons on my bumbershoot stand. It holds a few antique walking sticks, umbrellas and a cane.
Across the entryway is a table with a collection of blue and white porcelain and I like to keep a magnifying glass handy here. It may house my husband's car keys, receipts and glasses from time to time too.
Speaking of car keys, I throw mine into a different antique bowl by the back door.


Just below that, I plop my purse on the garden seat.


The Foo dogs use their derriere's to hold a few books in place.


I have opted to use blue and white tea towels in my kitchen ever since I had my own and a tiny blue and white bowl of Kosher salt is always handy in my kitchen.
Last Mother's day I got these fab blue willow canisters to house my kitchen staples.
Oh and of course, flowers!


What's in your blue and white?

Love it all, especially *those canisters*!!! I just purchased my fist blue and white umbrella stand the other day--who knew a girl could get so excited over an umbrella stand?!

I love how you use your blue and white. Some of mine is on display and some of it is waiting for flowers and such.

White and blue really warms the house, doesn 't it?!

I like to see pretties used not stored. You have put yours to good use, and I really like your umbrella stand. My father used to say "bumbershoot" too, so that made me smile.

All your blue and white china is beautiful. I have a lot of it also and use it very day.

I need a blue and white umbrella stand!

Kimberly Lemmon said...

And this is why I love your blog. So if I set out a pretty blue & white bowl and put my keys in there every day I won't have to spend so much time digging around in the bottom of my purse? Awesome collection - looks great in your home Kerry!!
