Blue & White China Love ...

Okay, I'll come right out with it, I absolutely LOVE blue and white china.  New, old, traditional, modern, vintage or folk, I just love it all.  I know I'm not alone in my swooning over blue and white plates, cups and ginger jars - I've got nearly 700 followers on my "Blue & White China" page on Pinterest - I've found my tribe!

Here's some of my favourite pins from my Pinterest Blue & White China board:-

Much to my lovely husbands growing alarm, I keep sneaking more of it into the house - sorry, honey!  That's the thing with blue and white china, you don't have to be a millionaire, you can certainly start collecting it at any price point.  An easy, and very affordable, place to start your collection is your local Chinese/Asian grocery store - there's usually a shelf of gorgeous Asian blue and white bowls and plates lurking around somewhere down the back, and they're only a few dollars a piece.

If you're one of my blue and white china tribe, come over to Pinterest (click the button to the right of the blog) and see what I'm pinning.


  1. Hi Kirsty
    I love blue and white porcelain too. This I believe comes from my Dutch mother who always cherished delft ware and other blue and white china. Quite of few of the items I now source through my business, Joyful Fair use upcycled, vintage porcelain. I think my mum would approve!

    1. I love the earrings and necklace that I have from your company with the blue and white china incorporated in it. I'm sure your Mum would be very proud. x
