It is no secret that I love dishes, and I adore blue and white china and pottery. I know it may seem early to some, but this weekend I started to think about getting my house ready for the upcoming season. I like to make small changes around the house for each time of the year. My china cabinet and open shelving in the kitchen is no exception. If you will remember, in my Summer Kitchen Tour, the shelving displayed blue and white pottery along with red pottery. For the Fall and Winter Season, I have decided to do a blue and white theme on my shelving in the kitchen. What could be more classic than blue and white? It looks good by itself, with Fall Colors, or decorated with greenery and red berries for the Winter. It is timeless and eye pleasing.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Sadly, this month is our last full month of Summer. However, it is also a great time to start getting our homes ready for the busy Fall Season that is ahead of us. In the coming weeks, I will be sharing some great tips to get your home organized and decorated. I hope that you have a fabulous and blessed day!!!
Beautiful! As you know, I LOVE blue and white!
Thank you PInky. I adore your blue and white collection and how you have it beautifully displayed in your home. We are kindred spirits with our blue and white collections. I hope that you have a wonderful and blessed day!!!
You have such a beautiful collection of blue and white. Have to say that the pitchers are my favorite!
Have a great day Shannon!
Thank you Shirley! I like the pitchers too. Especially, the one with the cow on it. It is one of my favorites. I hope that you have a great day!!!
What a great spot to decorate. I love your collection of blue pitchers.
Hi Eilis! Thank you for your sweet comment. It is a great spot to decorate especially for the girl who loves to collect dishes! I hope that you have a wonderful day!!!
Beautiful blue and white in your kitchen. I love to see blue and white.
Me too Judy! I think it is a classic. I never tire of seeing it. Thank you so much for your sweet comment. I’m so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you have a wonderful day!!!
Your blue & white looks incredible. What a pretty display! I like the way you included the pop of orange with the fresh peaches – blue & orange is always a winner because they are complimentary colors. I can imagine little orange pumpkins tucked in your display in the upcoming months. Thanks for sharing.
Best & Bisous,

Hi Michelle! Thank you so much for your very sweet comments. I have been having visions of little orange pumpkins and fall berries nestled into my display. I love Summer, but I think I’m looking forward to Fall. These 100 degree days are getting to me!!! I’m so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you have a wonderful day!!!
You really have some beautiful items. Love the blue!
Thank you so much Valerie! I hope that you have a wonderful day!!!
Your blue is beautiful!! I am so glad to see someone who is thinking ahead to fall. I didn’t go too far, but I did move out a few really summer items and replaced them with sunflowers and yellow/gold colored things. It really keeps my hopes up that this heat will eventually go away and we will have a cool breeze or two :^)
Blessings to you,
Jaybird, I’m glad you are having thoughts of Fall too. Even though I do like Summer, I’m ready for these 100 degree days to go away! I’ve been trying to organize and pair things down to get ready for the upcoming season. It just seems to make the transition easier. Anyway, it is way too hot to go outside during the day so I might as well make good use of my time. I think that August seems to be a good month for this. I’m so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you have a wonderful week!!!
I love all of your pretty blues and whites and love how you’ve dressed the shelves.
Be a sweetie,

Hi Laura! I have adored the Spode Blue Italian for years and finally started my collection. I think it may be my favorite set of china. I’m so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you have a wonderful evening!!!
Shannon, I have always loved blue and white, and you have a great collection! The pitchers are fabulous! Blessings~
Thank you so much Pam! I adore blue and white. I know I don’t need another set of dishes, but I just started collecting the Spode Blue Italian. I’ve got dishes stored everywhere! I have such a weakness for them. I’m so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you have a wonderful week!!!
Shannon, I’m looking forward to fall and some cooler weather. Plus blue and white goes great with the rusty oranges of fall. ‘-)
Hi Sarah! I already thinking of Fall decor. I’m dreaming of pumpkins and cooler temperatures. I’m so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!!!
Love seeing all of your Blue Italian! A couple months ago I was trying to decide between Blue Italian and Blue Willow for an everyday dish set and I am so glad I chose Blue Italian! It’s so vibrant and goes so well with my other blue and whites.
Hi Meg! I’m so glad that you love Spode Blue Italian too. I have always wanted to collect it and just purchased two of the dinnerware sets. I think it just may be my all time favorite set of dishes! I look forward to adding more pieces to my collection. I’m so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!
