Blue Monday

Happy Blue Monday!
This week I'd like to show you some of my recent blue finds. I bought the first two plates at a small shop that sells vintage and antiques. The plates are by Taylor, Smith, and Taylor.

This plate is the English Abbey by Taylor, Smith & Taylor.
This plate was in a box lot at a sale. I could not find any markings on it. The design is blue and gold and the edging is gold.
I love this blue hobnail candy dish. I bought it at a flea market.

Blue is my favorite color and each Monday I look forward to seeing so many beautiful blues. I'd like to thank Sallie at
http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ for hosting Blue Monday. Please visit Sallie and find your way to some wonderful Blue Monday posts

Hi Sweetie, You have such a very pretty collection. My Mother collected blue and white. Anytime I see beautiful pieces like this I think of her. Happy Blue Monday.

I looked at your display, and mumbled, "I don't know which I like better." Just as I was deciding...

My husband looked over my shoulder and said, "The first two; that's always been your favorite." He's right! :-) Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday!

All are lovely, but the last one...oooooh! I have a few dessert plates that were my mother-in-laws that are very similar. I love them for their design and treasure them because they were hers.

Happy Blue Monday!

Greetings from Finland and our blue lakes!
I came just home from the lake, where we have our summer cottage.

Those old English dishes are so romantic and beautiful. I have to one very old English style plate like yours.

Have a happy week!

Heidi said...

I love your blue plates from England. Blue is a color I wear but don't use in decorating. I just don't have an emotional connection with it. I do however love Blue Willow.

Hugs ~

Hi Sweetie,

Things are busy this week so I've had to combine both my Pink Saturday and Blue Monday visits. Loved everything you showed both pink and blue. I just love the old pink depression glass and I am in envy of you for having found that sweet blue hobnail dish. It's beautiful. What a lucky find for you. Have a great week!!

Liz said...

That hobnail dish is fantastic. I'm so so so sorry to read about your daughter. That's truly heartbreaking.

Donna said...

White dishes are lovely!!!!!!!!! I love, love, love them! I hope you are having a wonderful day!!!

Pretty blue plates :) I remember my grandmother having a candy dish like that. I never knew it was called hobnail. Looking at it that makes perfect sense now. :)

take care,
Dawn

Hi Sweetie , oh my what good treasures you have found ! The plate with the gold edge looks like it might be "flow Blue", that would be a valuable piece. Did you ever look it up yet, I haven't had time.

onlymehere said...

Elizabeth said...

I adore all of these blue pieces! Blue is one of my favs, but I am noticing I don't have a lot of it in my home decor. Strange.

Your blue plates and hobnail are beautiful, Sweetie, I have a few Fenton hobnail pieces, but they're white. Thanks for visiting my vintage blue tablecloth - have a wonderful week... Donna
