“Porcelain Blue”


Description from Smoky Rose: my mom had these great vases when I was a kid - wonder where they are. Porcelain blue background w/maidens in an ivory color - pretty.
I got a top that shade of blue - this may be my new color, I'll tell ya! I've always like it, but never wore it... don't know why.... but I got more darn compliments today wearing my porcelain blue top.

    Sky Blue FWPs with Kyanite – another combo I had not thought to put together! Really like it!!!
    You should post a pic of yourself in your lovely new top! Was it Mark Twain who said he could ‘live for a month on a good compliment…’? I’m sure you won’t have to wait that long!!!:>

    I’m comfortable with that, but don’t like my name so DD is fine, thanks for asking.

    Smoky Rose says:

    you got it then, DD.
    we’re glad you’re here!

    I gotcha – my name is actually hypenated, my middle name was my grandma’s – but it’s old fashioned – kids in school made fun. to keep it sacred and special, I don’t use it.

    Very pretty combination – reminds me of my mom’s dishes! I love the blues that you chose to put with the African opal.

    smoky chick,

    love this one, I believe my mom also had some dishes with that color combo, think they’re called “blue willow”, is that the pattern you’re remembering? anyway, very soothing combo, love the creamy african opal and vanilla pearls w/ all the other gorgeous blue beads in ths one!

    I love this pick but then blue is always in style!!!!! I would not have thought to put the blue pearl with the kyanite but I am going to have to try it now.

    Joyce, we had those too! (I also wonder where they are?….haven’t seen them at my mom’s house…) – and yeah, the kyanite is just about that exact color, isn’t it?
    I was a tad limited with my blues, what I needed was something a tad milkier – My mom would be ashamed – could not for the life of me think of what it was called. Just found it on ebay – Wedgwood – duh, as in wedgwood blue?….. some days I wonder about the kid here….
