Anyone who knows me, knows that I love English pottery. My favorite is Emma Bridgewater. Not being able to order, sell and set the table with her pieces is just about the only thing I miss about having my brick and mortar store!
Her table linens and accessories are styling. Her designs are so fresh and brand new.
If I still had my shop her new dish line would be the focal point.
Not grandmothers dowdy table settings for sure.
I like the combination of the Spode and Blue Willow plates. To me it is so cottage and grandmother had a lot of it.

But, I have really never been a fan of either Blue Willow or reproduction Spode. Although, whoever put these last two table settings together did a nice job. They look very comfortable and easy.
So, there you have it! Mary Ann is developing a new look in her repertoire. Carolina Irving's new table top is crisp, clean and refreshing and definitely casual enough for sandy beaches and big ole fireplaces in our Lake Michigan cottages.
Grandmothers Blue Willow and Spode will always be treasured but a new guard is coming and the look will change with the generations. I am still an Emma Bridgewater fan for my up north cottages, but I would work with this new line in a heartbeat!
Gotta love Pinterest!!
