“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”
― Edward Hersey Richards

It's all about blue and white today...


Perusing the antique mall the other day, and I found this beautiful, antique, blue and white coffee/tea carafe/decanter/or pot whichever you'd prefer to call it... and had to have it. It's about ten inches tall and about 4 inches wide at the widest. The scenes are Oriental. I like oriental. :o)


  1. Well, Annie.....it's a good thing we weren't shopping together! There might have been a little struggle as to who was going to buy this fantastic piece! See, I LOVE blue & white, anything. My house is full of it!
    Have a fabulous day!
