Blue Willow

I am one of those blue willow lovers – can’t stop collecting it. Our cottage is full of pieces I have found over the years and when we bought that little log cabin over 45 years ago it even came with blue willow dishes in the cupboards. I have made many pieces of jewelry from damaged blue willow plates, saucers and cups but I assure you I have never cut up a piece that was not already chipped our cracked – I could not do that. My favourite part of the design is of course the the two doves or love birds which are the key characters in the romantic Blue Willow Story. Whenever I cut up a plate my first goal is to successfully cut away this part of the pattern. Check out the legend of the Blue Willow story in words and animation100_7359
