There have been flirtations through the years. A fling with a red-wallpapered dining room, a set of strawberry patterned stoneware, a green bedroom, a yellow kitchen. But I've always returned to my love of blue and white. And I don't think it's much of a secret. All of the above were gifts given to me by different people.
The teapot, made in Vietnam and purchased at 10,000 Villages by my younger daughter, the jug holding the hydrangeas by a long-time friend, the vase by my sister-in-law. My elder daughter brought the rectangular dish back from Holland several years ago, and the oval dish in the centre just arrived in my daughter-in-law's suitcase from Spain.
It looks like blue and white is a winning combination all over the world. What is your favourite colour? Have you flirted with others through the years?
