So if you know me, you already know that I am not a traditional person. I married my husband in a gay cabaret theater and I didn't have bridesmaids (You know who you are!;)) I would never buy matching furniture and my dishes are a mix and match of things I love, however, there is something I have always loved about blue and white china, which I believe to be VERY traditional. The intricate patterns and classic color scheme..honestly who doesn't love blue...just speak to me. This weekend I scored a blue damask storage ottoman at a yard sale for FIVE BUCKS. mint condish. I had planned to use it to stylishly contain the toy-nado that sweeps through this small space each day, as seen below, but now I am thinking of hauling our wood coffee table out to the garage, until the Bug gets a little older, and using it in our living room. In toddler vs. coffee table...coffee table always wins.
A few snaps of my blue and white obsession...
|The SCORE from this weekend...Hello Ernie|
|Some lovely vessels mixed into my garden..the Goodwill price tag occasionally shows up..oops|
|Frida keeping watch over my kitchen potions|
|This serving platter that we bought on our honeymoon in Isla Mujeres looks best with a buttload of guacamole in it.|
|This giant vase that I bought on ultra clearance ages ago and now fill with random Texas brush that I find on stroller walks|
|One of MANY vessels for holding jewelry in front of a stack of pictures waiting to be hung. I removed the pile of dirty tea cups and wine glasses for your viewing pleasure. You're welcome.|
|Kleenex. Not sexy but you gotta have em so they may as well come in a purty box.|
Hope your Monday is a little less blue...
