Blue Monday

It's Monday, let's all go here to Smiling Sally's Blue Monday and see lots of pretty blue things!

Today I'm sharing a special Wedgewood blue plate. My mother-in-law gave it to me when her son and I became engaged back in the 60s! I had never heard of Wedgewood, but loved the color and style.


The latest issue of Victoria is their special blue and white issue. I always enjoy their blue and white issues.

This issue has a large variety of blue items, even food!


Also in this issue there's a big article about Wedgewood china


Including Wedgewood pieces similar to my Wedgewood plate!



It is interesting to read the history of Wedgewood.



I hope you enjoyed seeing my blue Wedgewood. Do you have any blue Wedgewood? I think it is so pretty!

Have a happy day, don't be "blue!"
God Bless.

I never appreciated Wedgewood when I was young but I love it now. Sadly, I do not own any.

So pretty. Yes I do have one piece but it the tall white vase with the blue flowers. I received it as a wedding gift 36 years ago. I use it often when I buy some very tall flowers. It always looks so elegant. Someone told me that shortly after I received it they broke the mold and that is why it is so rare to even find a piece in the white glaze these days. Not sure if that info is correct? It's a keeper no matter what because it is so pretty. Thanks for sharing.

I bought that issue just for the blues. That was a great article on Wedgewood.

Very pretty and a wonderful gift.

I was teasing about the drink. I knew you were too far away. I will wait until Thursday to celebrate, maybe I'll try a leaning belinni. Honey Bear took me out to J Alexander's on Thursday night since we wouldn't be together this week. Too bad all my blogging buddies live elsewhere. What a party that would be!
Blessings,
Mama Bear

Hi Katherine,
Your Wedgewood plate is beautiful! I used to sell it in a jewelery store at one time. It is such a perfect shade of blue. Thanks for sharing and Happy Blue Monday.

Your Wedgwood plate is just gorgeous! At the weekly auctions I go to, they always have a few pieces of Wedgwood up for bids and people really go after it, they're quite the collectables. I just bought the latest Bliss Victoria as well and have been drooling over every page! lol xoxo
