The dresser


My oak dresser with my collection of blue and white pottery.I was 18 when I married, I bought this dresser when I was about 22. I was the eldest of 6 children and couldn,t wait to leave home . when I was a girl you could not just leave home and get a flat . It now seems frightening to think of being married so young but I was well schooled in housekeeping so no problems, and a big bonus ! 2 sons .
There is always blue and white pottery in the charity shops in England . I do have more , some I use ,some I have tucked away.

I love your collection. I've been on the hunt for blue and white dishes...hard to find here. My great grandmother use to have some (she came from England) and I always loved hers.

I was married at 18 and we've been married now for 42 years. Not bad for one who eloped.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

There is something about blue and white, it looks o.k with everything, and the patterns don,t have to match---cottonreel

Oh, I am drooling over your blue & white collection. I have blue & white in my dining room. I love the deep blues in glass. You have quite a collection and it is very pretty.
