Blue Willow Collection

Blue Willow


My collection of Blue Willow is growing. Bargains at Antique stores & Salvation Army, gifts from friends ... the plates on the chair are 6 inch dessert plates/saucers. (the rocker is a little toddler rocker that belonged to me when I was little. It was given to me when I was 13 months old).
I found the plate easel at Hobby Lobby. It's a 2 plate easel, I think. I can't figure out if it's supposed to have 2 or 3. The bottom plate doesn't fit quite right.

The whiter does not have a traditional pattern or boarder. The border is called a Bridal Gold 2. It has a reversed pattern simplified.

It is a nice contrast to the other blue willow patterns in my collection.


  1. Hi PK,

    You have convinced me, if I will ever collect anything it will be Blue Willow china. Pretty stuff.

    But I really want to know: how did that little bitty cat get such a great big raccoon tail? A swipe or a trade-in?

  2. WHOOPS ...codes got switched!!!

    That's supposed to be a blue willow plate!!!

    That is the cat that BIT ME!!!

    Protecting that tail.

    He is a main coon. Known for those tails. In that picture he was about 6 months old.

    The tail is still that large in comparison to his body, however when we pull out the camera, the tail goes between the legs and he glares at the camera with ears down. He HATES having his picture taken!! He knows we're trying to get his tail on film.

    Anyone else reading this after I change the picture, there was a picture of Twitch. I'm going to do a post on my cat bite.
