  3. I've always adored Blue Willow and have had a set since I set up housekeeping in the 70s, long before I was Willow!

  4. It reminds me of Murder, She Wrote; she had a whole giant Blue Willow set in her house, I thought it was quaint.

  6. Dear Willow: Oh I love Blue Willow pattern! So much history and I heard there is a story here. Wonders if I should make it "twisted" or "worsted"? Which way will I go...which way will i go?

  9. Blue Willow plate, made in China for the European market during British colonial rule. Three fishermen on the bridge, a fishing boat, two happy birds in the air and a thriving orchard onshore. God knows what the ideograms around the edge really say!

  11. A perfect Qing Dynasty story of unrequited love! The perfectly "efficient agony" !
