IN THE MOOD FOR BLUE
Sometimes, you just need to change things up a bit....
I needed a new rug or two for our kitchen and
couldn't decide on the style or color I wanted to go with....
then somehow I decided to pull out the navy blue from the
drapes and see what pieces I could add to the counter tops
that I had stored away....and....I am loving the results!
I adore this soup tureen and have not had this on display
for some years now.....stunning piece!
I was actually a bit nervous to bring out
one of Grandmother's vintage plates, but I
wanted to be able to enjoy looking at it each day
rather than have it tucked away safely in a china cabinet.
I decided to turn the farmhouse table around
was thrilled that it made this little dining nook seem larger....
I do not own a lot of blue pieces, but I do so enjoy what I have.
I purchased the soup tureen and this teapot
probably twenty five years ago....
The blue and white plate is another one of Grandmother's
pieces and features all the historic landmarks from Arkansas...
she must have been visiting...
the little french storybook plates belonged to my mother in-law.
It can be so lovely to have these heirlooms out on display
so you can enjoy them daily and remember those you have loved.
When I found this....I knew this was the look and color
I wanted to bring in......two new runners make a huge difference!
Mae seems to approve.....as long as
there are sunbeams...all is right in our world!
Thanks for stopping by today....
what little changes have you made in your decor lately?
