My Blue and White Showcase

Today is Show and Tell Friday.  I am joining Cindy at My Romantic Home.
I have been collecting Blue and White accessories for about a year. And, I have wanted to share them with everyone for a long time.

I just love this cup and saucer so much.  I found it at an estate sale.  It is a Johnson Brothers - Made in England.  The tea pot is part of a set of dishes that was on sale at Save Mart Super Market in Santa Clara.  I bought it before Christmas when I was visiting my mom,  while my sister was on vacation.  The small dessert dish is Spode - Made in England with an Italian design.  My sister-in-law gave it to me to sell in "My Cozy Corner" but, I kept it. I want to live with things for awhile before I sell them.  I think that is human nature.

I found this photograph in Tea Time Magazine click here in the March/April 2010 issue.  Johnson Brothers Indies teapot, sugar bowl, and cup and saucer from a private collection. When I saw this cup and saucer that was similar to mine in a magazine I was so excited. 


This is a sweet cup and saucer.  No markings anywhere.  If anyone knows more about this cup and saucer I would love to hear about it.  Thanks.

The candle stick is Spode. I won it last month as a white elephant gift at our church women's meeting.  The sugar and creamer I bought at a small antique store for $10.00.  And, the Camellias are from a tree in my front yard.  The three blooms I picked are the only ones that didn't have brown edges from all the rain we've had this winter.

Thanks again to Cindy at My Romantic Home for hosting this get-together.
Link back to Cindy's blog and enjoy more things from our heart, our home, and our garden. 
Thank you for stopping by and please leave a comment if you can.  I have enjoyed showing My Blue and White and I hope you have enjoyed it too.

  4. These blue and white patterns are timeless, they are always in fashion ! Very pretty !

  5. In the 70's I had the complete Johnson Bros. set like your cup and saucer. I loved it, but in a fit of rage at my husband, I broke every single piece except the creamer which I still have. You don't know the tears I have shed over the loss of my beloved blue & white dishes. I hope you have as much enjoyment seeing those pieces as I have looking at your beautiful pictures.
