Williamsburg Pottery

I've made no secret that Virginia was not one of our favorite military assignments. It was also our last one, the one Hubby retired from, and where we moved from on our way here to Michigan.

There were several things that we did love about it. A few people that will be part of our extended family forever, and then there is Williamsburg, probably our favorite place in Virginia.

Just prior to leaving Virginia we had some good friends visit us from our previous assignment in Illinois. One of the days they were there we visited Williamsburg. Of course we had already been there many times. While we were visiting some of the little shops in Colonial Williamsburg, I decided to buy this little set of blue and white pottery as a memory of the place and day.

Plus blue is my favorite color and I love pottery, but I don't love lots of clutter and these little pots were just right.


Right now they are inside my glass bookshelf in my bedroom and there isn't a thing in them. Someday I might bring them out and put them on my dresser, but I love not having anything but a lamp and one little dish on it right now.

I actually bought an unexpected item from Williamsburg that day that I'll share another day with you. I think I'll just have to do a three- or four-part series on my Williamsburg goodies!

Beautiful..I love blue and white, and I love dishes, too!

I only have a lamp and a dish on my dresser, too! I've tried to be careful not to clutter some pieces of furniture and it really does look tidy all of the time. Not to mention, so much easier to dust!

Your pottery pieces are so nice. I love it when something has a memory behind it! :)

Beautiful pieces! I haven't been to Williamsburg since I was a kid. I'd love to go back and take my family one day! I loved it!

I love your pottery jars! They are so pretty. Blue is also my favorite color. I have always wanted to go to Williamsburg, especially now that my girls are homeschooled. I think that would be a fabulous "field trip" they wouldn't forget. I can't wait to see the next parts of your Williamsburg series! Thanks for sharing! -April
