**Shock**Gasp**Blue in The OC Cottage!!!




Don't be alarmed...you do have the correct blog!









As surprising as it may seem...there is BLUE in all
3 of the OC Cottages...in the form of a darling
chintz pattern named "Julia". Like this little
demi-tasse...








This is "Julia" one of the most popular...and unfortunately
...most expensive patterns made by Royal Winton. But
the pre-WWII lead-based blue is so gorgeous it really
has to be seen to be believed!






Daher also created these adorable tin plates in the
"Julia" pattern...made more adorable by the
blue birds!!!!






And this cute little tin container!






My love for the "Julia" pattern and that amazing periwinkle
color drew me to these English porcelain pins that were made
during the same period.









Just plain pretty!

Be sure to stop over at SMILING SAL'S
for more BLUE MONDAY!

  6. Yes well there is blue and then there is that magnificent blue. That is the kind of blue we love, it goes with pink so well!!
    I adore those treasures especially the bluebirds...see they are a special blue, you can't get pinkbirds....well you can they are flamingos aren't they and somehow not as romantic as a bluebird.
    OK rambling now, have a lovely week, kiss noises Linda Lilly Cottage.
