  9. Dear Mark, my family lived in Asia in the 60s-70s and my mother had a huge collection of blue and white. I never fully appreciated it until i began following your blog. I recently inherited much of the pottery and instead of putting it in storage i created a space to display it in my home, thanks to you. It is beautiful and reminds me of my childhood. Thanks for inspiring!

  10. Hi Mark!
    Love your blue and white version of Orient Express! My mother always decorated our living room (growing up) with an Orient theme, but hers was Sage green and cream/white….she would have lived your take! Hugs
