Blue Madness

To say I'm fond of blue patterns and cobalt blue glass would
be putting it mildly.  Blue Willow, Blue Delft, Italian Blue
Spode, or any cobalt blue glass gives me a thrill.  See my
teeny, tiny cat in the basket?  The teapot in the middle is
actually from James Sadler of England.  The Oklahoma
plate is a present my mother bought for her mother many
years ago.  When I was a child I had a blue Fiesta ware plate
that my grandmother gave me.  I still have it.  I used to eat
all of my meals on this plate.  It must be over 60 years old.
Maybe that is why I like blue so much.  It gives me such
good memories.
