I’ve looked forward for some time to showing you my pretty collection of blue and white bowls.
I started this collection years ago, and quite by accident, when I happened upon a couple of striking blue and white bowls at Marshalls that didn’t match, but that I thought looked pretty side-by-side.
After that, I never looked back, and my first pair of blue and white bowls has grown to a couple of stacks of blue and white bowls! Honestly, I still get such a kick out of opening my kitchen cabinet door and seeing the varying blues and patterns of these bowls stacked up before me.
These bowls have such varied and unique patterns, both on the inside and the outside. As you can see here, some look more English, while some look more Asian. Some are more modern-looking while others are much more traditional-looking. Some are more simplistic, while others are more elaborate. And yet, all are blue and white. Together, the effect is fascinating, don’t you think?
My collection consists of blue and white patterned bowls that were all inexpensive purchases, mostly from Asian groceries, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Tuesday Morning. I only purchase bowls that are dishwasher safe and microwave safe.
Because, yes, I actually use these bowls, and a lot! The larger ones are perfect for soup and cereal, and the smaller ones I like for yogurt and ice cream.
I usually rotate the stacks of bowls every few weeks, so that I can enjoy eating off of different patterns. Do you have a collection of varied objects or dishes that you adore? I would love hear about it if you do!
