I have a slight obsession about blue willow decorative items. Vases, lamps, pillows, couches, teapots, cups, plates, flower pots, sake cups, etc, you get the idea. Every time I see a blue willow piece with Asian motif (not the Dutch blue and white windmills) I have a very irresistible urge to buy it. Can you be a neat freak in life but have hoarding-ish tendencies towards one thing? I'm not sure, but I think that's whats happening to me.
Yesterday I made the most amazing discovery in the middle of Soho. It is a 3 floor megastore that is filled with the most amazing blue and white pottery I have ever seen. And to make matters worse for my wallet, it is priced extremely well. In the first 15 minutes I picked 9 things that I needed to have, unfortunately they are all super sized and are not subway-friendly so I will return on the weekend with my man-friend to help load and carry them.
If you are just as excited as I am about blue willow vases or all things Asian, then head to Pearl River in Soho, 495 Broadway, NYC and let me know which one was your favorite!
