Blue And White

I just love visiting my friend Sarah. She is a very good friend to me so it is always good to visit such a good friend. I also love to visit because she has an amazing house. It is the kind of home where every nook and cranny is filled with the coolest ideas for displaying collections and treasures. . .

In this post I thought I would share her blue and white porcelain collection.

Sarah loves to collect many different things but I know that the blue and white porcelain is one of her very favorites because it is always on display somewhere in her home. Many of her other collections will be put away for a bit and then come out again in a new way.

The blue and white porcelain may always be out but it moves around her home and gets displayed in beautiful ways. This time she has sprinkled some pink in with it to give it a fresh look.

The spots that Sarah finds to put her porcelain is so surprising sometimes.

Sarah is also a very talented florist. She creates amazing floral pieces that will take your breath away. The one below is one of her simpler pieces but I just love how it looks mixed in with her blue and white.

I would have never thought of mixing it with pink but I think it turned out very pretty.


Many of her pieces serve a purpose as well as being beautiful.

It always makes a collection seem important when you display it under glass. Through the Summer months this year she displayed some of her blue and white in this cabinet.

Remember when you display lots of things together to vary the heights for interest. Sarah is an expert at display.
If you need more height somewhere then use some stacked books or boxes.

Here is a little peak at a few of Sarah's plates

One of the most important things to remember about collections is to never limit the possibilities of how you display them.
Until Next Time

These blue and white pieces are beautiful. I like the photo where alot of them are displayed behind glass, and also the first photos of the round items. I don't know if they have a particular name that collectors use, but, oh my, they are pretty.
