Blue and White Dishes

Bloggers love dishes and blue and white ones seem to be favorites. I too have collected many blue and white wares and thought I'd show you what I've done with some of mine. No dishes were purposely broken in the making of this border.

    Donna, did you buy those dishes just to use as a border ? Love the leaf design on them....
    Such a delightful idea.

  4. Jo, they are all dishes I have used and broken. It has taken years to get that many. I filled in some places with tiles until I had enough dishes to complete the edging.

  9. OMG...I'm with ya on the nightmares...I even had one about my deceased husband, the one that died in October, I never saw him in the dream, but his presence was VERY strong...and the one last night, I'm still too groggy to remember it all, but whew that creepy feeling is there, this is strange to me too for the last two weeks. maybe the full moon approaching...in more than one way.

    90 degrees today and I'm going to languish in every moment of it in my garden...ahhhh, spring, methinks is finally here!

    have a beautiful Sunday!
