Smitten | Billy Cotton

Since I've been cooking a lot more and sharing some of the photographs and recipes here on the blog I've realized that I'm in desperate need of simple, plain white dishes.  I've been collecting vintage china for a few years now and while these highly decorative pieces spice up a fancy fete they detract from the visual impact of simple foods like say, the soft pretzels I made last week. Plain plates, especially classic white allow the food to be the star.  So last week I set out on a mission to find the perfect refined white tableware. Enter Billy Cotton. Love at first sight.  There's something about the shape of the French Bowl that has be seriously smitten.  Oh and the handle on the pitcher, to die for!  My Birthday is coming up next week so I may have to treat myself to a few pieces.

I have a crazy tableware addiction so I'd love to hear what kind of dishes do you use?

  1. When they build those big hublot replica numerals pit of tritium tubes. I know a lot of people find it honey or immature but it is a distinctive adaptation unique to Ball and creates massive amounts of legibility. Would have liked rolex replica sale store as well. I know they make solid replica watches and the company has a serious heritage but they remain a tainted brand to me. I also think many of their designs, like this watch, are a bit heavy handed and while they excel at legibility they lack rado replica sale and efficiency in design. I anticipate I learn a shocking and also highly entertaining figure, since I keep hearing from replica watches sale people and watchmakers how most customers is care to have the faintest idea. They just like the more complex look lent by the pushers and sub dials and all the fancy text. The watches store is so ridiculously over the top in its readouts and functionalities, it goes beyond the most stretched replica watches sale of utility in an impressive way, even by luxury watch standards.
