My Favorite “Pop” of Color

My favorite pop of color throughout my house now is beautiful bluish green.   I love the way it looks with my whites and browns.
It also reminds me of spring so that’s a good thing.
My sweet husband brought these flowers home to me yesterday.  I am fighting a cold and these were a great way to boost me up a little.  I love this old tin holding them.

This old egg basket holds some beautiful old books and my grandfather’s trophy bowl.

Check out my new bottle. I fell in love with it when I saw it in  Urban Farmgirl’s Etsy Shop.
I also want to show you a great necklace I bought from Mary.

Love this!
You should go over and take a look at her beautiful ETSY shop.  She has gorgeous pieces and they are all displayed wonderfully.
What is your favorite color to accent with?  Or, do you have many?

Hi Amy!
I love all your vintage vingettes scattered about your beautiful home. The wooden box is 2die3 as is the great looking can turned flower vase. Love it all.

My favorite color to use as an accent is soft greens.

What beautiful vignettes you have. I love the old tool box and the way you are using it to hold plates etc. I have quite a few from my Grandfather and Father who were both builders. The egg basket is lovely too. Thank you for sharing these with us. Hope you are feeling better soon. ~~Sherry~~

I love, love your fave accent color, Amy!!! So lovely and soothing. I like it as well. Now, where did you get the necklace/pendant in the last photo? I didn't find it on Urban Farmgirl's etsy. Thanks!

Amy- I love that color too! I wish that would make a big "comeback"...LOVE it! I go through stages where I have different colors that are my favorite. I have not had any blue in a long time and now I am finding that I like some of my old blue pieces again...and No..I am not talking 1980's "country blue". lol

I love that first tin..and what a sweet husband you have to bring you flowers. I hope you are feeling better soon. Have a wonderful night, sweetie! Hugs-Diana

Hey Amy! Your hubby is so sweet. I loved seeing all your decor. We are a lot a like. I love how you decorate! Say a little prayer for me if you dont mind, I have really been tested today. My computer broke this morning and I am using my daughters laptop. Just seems like if it was going to go wrong it was today. I sure hope you get to feeling better soon Amy. That ol yucky mess is going around. I hope to get my computer fixed next week:) Hope that you have a great weekend!(((hugs)))

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

One of my favorite colors, as well. I have so many favorites but I'm always drawn to blue-greens for some reason. Your caddy and vintage fan are my favorite. You have a good eye for putting vignettes together!

Take care,
~Michelle :)

I love this blueish green too. My son broke my pot that was this color :(
I've been on the hunt for a replacement. I loved the tour of all your pretty things. It is a nice Spingy shade.

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

oops I meant spring not sping :)

Love all these vignettes with the greenish blue! I really love the egg basket. I need one of those to collect eggs when my hens start laying. The old books are great too. That is a great color!

You have such an eye for the vignette. My husband just brought home some sentimental items from his (late) father's office. I'm planning to go all "Amy" with them.

Rebecca said...

Amy, all your displays are wonderful... I love the egg basket and all the old books! That great old green gives such a spark of life to your vignettes.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend
