It's time for an update...

...but which ones?  
I've decided that I need to buy some new crockery.  I have lots of mismatched vintage and new pieces which is fine and dandy BUT I want to be a proper grown up with a full set of matching crockery and not just for special days but to be used everyday.  I don't have a dish washer...I love washing up by hand and if its washing pretty crockery, so much the better.  
So what should I choose?
  
This is from the Burleigh Potteries in Stoke-on-Trent and established in 1851.  Having said that I want a matching set I think what I mean is matching in style/design but perhaps with different patterns. 
I'm drawn to blue.  I love the this dark cobolt blue hand painted Polish pottery by Boleslawiec and found at Country Traditionals.  I also have a few pieces of this. 
Buy then I love the simplicity of these hand thrown pieces by Nick Membery in Wales.  There aren't as many pieces to choose from which might help me!
Then I found Little Wren Pottery on Etsy. I love the colours here, so earthy and natural.  

 So there you have it.  I can't make my mind up and I need your help please. 
Which do you prefer? Do you have a favourite pottery/maker?

Okay, I am mostly a white china gal but if I go for colour or pattern it would definitely be from the Burleigh potteries range. The patterns are all gorgeous and do mix and match so well. And of course white pieces will work with any of them making it more flexible too.

Of course you have to go with what your heart says in the end ;o) Lolo xx

Beautiful pots. But just to muddy the waters what about Winchcombe pottery. The web site is awful, but they sell amazing pots.

I collect from makers themselves and just have a mish mash of mugs, cups, teabowls, and jugs. I don't think they need to match. Just be loved and used.
