Blue Monday ~ Taylor & Ng Collection

Happy Blue Monday!
Todays event is of course hosted by Sally @
Please be sure to visit her and the list of other paticipants to see all their bluetiful things they have to share today!
*******
Today I would like to share with you, my little collection of
Taylor & Ng stoneware.
I already had the coffee mugs shown below, when I discovered this baking dish with the cobalt blue glaze at a local antiques shop.
When I looked inside it and discovered the booklet with the Taylor and Ng insignia I got really excited.
I had never seen any other pieces of theirs except the coffee mugs!
Speaking of the mugs... here they are!
They come in other colors, which I also have too, but I'm only showing the blue one's for todays theme. My mom gave me my first mug, the "Le Lapin" and of course I loved it because of the french words and the rabbit on it, but little did I know the real reason she gave it to me was to see if I would notice what those naughty little bunnies were doing in the background!

See what I mean!!
This mug has of course become my husbands favorite mug! He likes to use it as a signal to let me know... well you know!!!
Hmmm....I've seen these sell for a pretty penny on ebay.
I think maybe I'll sell it!

I had friends who had that bunny mug and used it as a signal too! I always laughed when I caught sight of it in their sink waiting to be washed.:)

Sherri,
Oh my, those are some very frisky rabbits! When I saw the close up I LOL that is so funny. I love the deep cobalt blue rooster stoneware, very nice. I also like the iron piece you placed in the background it makes for a nice photo. I am always trying to get a decent shot and would love to upgrade my basic point and shoot camera.
Also would you consider stopping by a sweet online friend of mine named Michelle? Her blog is called Home Decorating News and is listed under Blog Friends on my sidebar. She is running a neat contest and she is a doll. ~Cathy~
