Blue Blog Party

You are invited to a Blog Party!

Early in the morning or late at night, you can stop by whenever it's convenient for you...No need to bring anything, just your own cup of coffee...No dress code enforced, even pajamas are OK!...

Sounds fun, doesn't it? Well, our theme this time is "Blue"

...and here's how it works:

1-Post something on your own blog related to the blue color: You can show your latest blue creation, your favorite blue room, brag about your blue hydrangeas, share that blueberry cake recipe that your family loves so much...you know, the BLUE sky is the limit....Don't forget to say you are participating in the Etsy Cottage Style Blog Blue Party and add the button!
2-Sign up your name and your blog address in the Mr. Linky box at the end of this post.
3-Have fun visiting the other Guests blogs and having visitors over! Don't forget to leave a comment to thank your Host!

I'll be the first one...here's my Blue Post:

Every time I think of blue, I think of my Blue Transferware Collection:


I started collecting these particular dishes about 8 years ago and I honestly don't know how many I have, but I know I love each one of them...They live inside my china cabinet....

...and on top of my china cabinet...

They hold fake eggs in a bookshelf...

And dress some of my walls...

They are even in the bathroom!


I love their different shades of blue and I don't mind if they are chipped or stained...because just like us, they get better with age!


The Party is now over, but stay tuned because we'll have one (different theme) every month!!

I absolutely love all your transferware! I have several sets myself and find myself "sneaking" new pieces past my husband all the time. He says pretty soon he is going to price tags on all my dishes and have a sale! What a stinker huh?
