I am participating in my first Blue Monday hosted by Smiling Sally whose favorite color is blue. Blue is definitely one of my favorite colors too! I have been collecting blue china since I was about 8. I used to find lots of them at flea markets, auctions, yard sales, and antique shops. Then I learned about eBay-big mistake! My collection just keeps growing-a piece at a time. I go off on another collecting tangent and I forget about the blue & white, but always keep coming back to it. I must admit I have ‘strayed” to other colors as well, but the bulk of my collection is blue! One of my favorite pieces is a platter my mom & dad bought for me as an 18th birthday present. It is large about 17” long and is flow blue. They paid all of about $35.00 for it-my dad-(silly man) thought they had spent too much!
Most of my collection are English pieces, but I have a
French piece & even some American pieces of Flow blue. The little Mason's aqua jug I picked up at the Salvation Army for $3.95-what a buy!
