Here we are - the 20th of January already. These early weeks are just flying by. I have a quote on my chalkboard right now, "If winter comes, can spring be far behind?" At the rate this year is going, spring will be knocking at my door before I know it. (Never mind the snow in tomorrow's forecast!)
Let's talk about blue.
These days, I don't use a lot of blue in my home decor. I do have a blue ceilinged powder room, but that's about it. Years ago, I had tons of what was called "country blue" - I even had blue plaid counter tops in our kitchen. Don't judge - it was "all that" in 1989 when we built that house!
Perhaps that is the reason I haven't used much blue these past years. Who knows? Actually, I am just a warm color girl and blue is on the cooler spectrum.
But, wait! I've let some blue slip in recently. And....I am really liking it in this small dosage.
I've been sharing recently about the cabinet and blue willow pieces I received from my mom after her move. I have been playing around with styling the cabinet and since my mom always, always had blue willow in said cabinet, I decided to try incorporating a few pieces into my vignettes.
I put some ivy in an old cream pot, next to a black metal chamber stick. I opened one of the drawers and used it as display space.
I also put one of her blue platters inside the cabinet, and layered in a depression glass cake stand and Jadite pitcher. I like the pop of blue with the warm colors...adds some spice to every thing.
In small doses, I am really enjoying the blue. Who knew?
