Blue Moon Roses

It seems likely that I won't be alone in mentioning the blue moon this Blue Monday. I wish I could say I know exactly why this full moon was a blue one, but I can't-- even though I read the explanation. Since it matters to me in no way at all, I just didn't keep it straight!

And since I did practically turn blue standing outside staring at the moon, it only seems fitting to feature my Moonlight Roses teacup by Royal Albert. I am making up for not having a matching saucer by pairing it with my Dainty Blue pattern dinner plate, also by Royal Albert.


I have mentioned before that I used to set the Thanksgiving table with all different place settings, and this is one of them.

I suppose you could even say I only use this setting now once in a blue moon! Har, har!

Thanks for stopping by, and for forgiving me all this.
 It was just too irresistible.
Ciao! for now!

  11. What beautiful tea cups. A full moon is when the moon is full twice in one month. It happens very infrequently and that is why people say Once in a blue moon. My oldest daughter was born on a blue moon.

  12. Beautiful photos! The blue is lovely; especially the blue cup! Wishing you a lovely Thanksgiving.


  13. Oh, just gorgous! Love every piece you showed here!

  14. Happy Blue Monday! I like your blues. There used to be a wonderful shop here in town featuring Royal Albert. I didn't get into it nearly as often as I would have liked, always had my small kids with me, and now it is gone. Really a shame. They have such lovely patterns!

  15. I love Royal Albert teacups. This blue one is gorgeous! Love the plate too.

  16. Wow, this is absolutely beautiful! Gorgeous images!

  17. I saw those blue dishes in my google friend thing and had to come see them up close. How pretty! I would be afraid to use them too since it's my prettiest dishes I tend to chip.

  18. Lovin' the photos with the reflections, just beautiful-enjoy:@)

  19. Enjoyed your blue moon photos and humor!


  20. How very delicate and lovely! You always amaze me with your never ending source of beautiful items you so creatively mix and match. Love it!

  21. Hi Jo,
    I have to tell you that I am not a blue person (I don't have to many things that are blue). But I think you might have changed that because I love that blue rose china cup! I might have to start looking for some like that. Your photos are great, as always. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  22. Very pretty blues! I love that Moonlight Roses pattern; a whole set of them would look stunning, I think!

  23. What lovely blue treasures!! I love it all and your photos are gorgeous as usual!! Thinking I might have to have to start collecting blue transferware... :)

  24. Hi it is me again...sorry about the name mix up! I hate that and I am so sorry! You do not have to post either of these comments. I just want you to know that I do love to visit your blog. Please forgive me! Thank you...
