Back To Blue and Me

The Valentine decorations are put away and my blue is back. It's been a while. Fall decor with Halloween and Thanksgiving. Then Christmas. Then a bit of blue for January. Then Valentine's red and soon a bit of Irish green for St. Patrick's Day.
Willow pattern tray tiles.
 Flea market blue and white dishes in the metal dish rack.
The tray on the kitchen bar counter.
The top of the fridge.

All are back.
Of course, the doggies get a "set" table in blue and white. 
Even my shabby little beadboard heart looses it's red and white polkadot ribbon
 for a blue satin one.

  11. How beautiful your blue and white dishes, pretty lady. What great things in your kitchen and the vignettes. The little doggies are a treasure...I lost my little 12 yr. old pug last year because of an illness in his kidneys, they didn't fuction at all, it was so sad, I still miss him.
    Come visit my Asian Tablescape, this Thurs., if you haven't. Love to have you.

  12. My Millini Magnolia ( an eleven year old Peke) is pouting after seeing your dog's wonderful dishes! I suppose that this time tomorrow she will have a blue and white tablescape for herself! I, too, am blue and white to the soul.....cannot get enough of it ever! My everyday dishes that I use the most are Blue Danube by Lipper. Thanks for sharing your lovely blues and whites!

  13. You and I were both ready for a good dose of blue and white this week. Your tablescape is lovely. Thank you for sharing your beautiful design. Cherry Kay

  14. Did you make that beautiful serving tray yourself? That looks like it would be useful thing to make..just have to have the tiles with you to see if they'll fit in the wooden tray you buy! I love the depth of that tray. I can see this set up on a coffee table for tea/coffee and sweets.
