I love Blue Willow! Just have a small collection but started with an oval bowl that belonged to my husband's grandmother. I finally put some of my plates on the wall in our guest room. (I used the paper on the wall first method.)
We use an ironstone set of Blue Willow for our everyday dishes. Maybe it's a bit out of "style" to some, but the cobalt blue of the dishes is just the "look" I love. I love to collect pieces of pottery from Marshall, Texas also.
