Blue and White

I love blue and white pottery. I don't have too many pieces but when I see a bargain I try to get something. There was an estate auction in my neighborhood on Saturday, and they had a bunch of blue and white pottery. I managed to get two pieces very reasonably. I love this big vase and have the perfect corner for it in my family room.

I was also lucky enough to get this pretty blue plate. I was hoping to get more but I was outbid way above my limit.

I have been stitching but not making a whole lot of progress. I did manage to finish my May ornament. It's by Plum Pudding and stitched on a scrap of Light Examplar.

I've made some progress on Primitive Needle's Simply Live. It's stitched on Vintage Sand Dune with floss color changes by my friend Jan at OOE.

I 've stitched a bit on PS Weaterwise. I was hoping on having this finished before now, but Simply Live keeps calling my name.

Thanks for reading and commenting and
happy stitching!

Don't you just love those estate sales. I find that sometimes you have to pay more for things, but sometimes you can get a great deal. Love those vases. And also all your stitching. Doesn't Jan have great conversions for pieces?

I really like your ornament! Too cute! :)

Congrats on the new pieces you got at auction. They are beautiful.
And your stitching is gorgeous. I love the little ornament. And the PS piece. Can't wait to see tem finished.

Oooh, I love your estate sale finds! A great Ebay tip is to use I always got outbid till I used them! Your WIPs look great!

Your WIPs look so great. Particularly Weatherwise. It's a beautiful design indeed.

Your blue and whites are so pretty, Kath!! Love seeing your wips too, they are looking so great!! Your ornament finish is adorable!:)

Well you know how I love colors and converting, great fun. Can't wait to see more progresses, when you get the time from being such a good nana!:)

What pretty pieces you found, Kathy! I know you will enjoy them.

That little ornament is just darling. Is he going to be for one of your grandkids this year? The PS piece is wonderful - loving the color in that sky! And I know exactly what you mean about Simply Live. I was planning on finishing a shop model this week, but I switched over to SL on Wed nite. (It was calling my name and I just couldn't say no! LOL) Yours is so pretty!!
