Cottage collections: My blue willow

And I’m back! I know, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted, and apologies for that. Without going into too much detail (this isn’t the kids blog after all), I’m finding that my little man is keeping me quite busy these days!

Last I wrote, I put out a call for your cottage collections. I thought I’d get in on the act myself and share my own collection of blue willow china. I recently inherited it from my mom:

I’m calling this blue willow (because, duh, it’s blue), but this “Willow” pattern is also less commonly found in pink, green, or brown. As you can see, not all of my dishes have that famous scene, but I’m not picky. Any blue and white china qualifies for my collection. My mom got a lot of it at auction sales around the cottage, and of course some of it came from our favourite flea market in Crosby. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for more when we hit the flea for its opening weekend on Saturday. Woohoo!

Have a Willow collection of your own to share? Or another collection that was born at the cottage? Brag about it in the comments!
