Blue Willow China
My mother-in-law has Blue Willow China. I'd never seen it, or if I had I'd never noticed it. She told me that the pattern was pretty famous. Since then I've been seeing this pattern everywhere! Today, on Darby O'Gill I saw it. It's in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Roseanne, and mentioned in the Anne of Green Gables books along with dozens of others that I can't think of right now. It's crazy how often it pops up in movies and tv shows. Sometimes it's in red, not blue. The story is easy to find, but basically it's about two star-crossed lovers that were turned into birds. There's always birds and a bridge and a house. I'm just surprised every time I see it and marvel that I never noticed it before. Has anyone else noticed how popular this china is?
