Shades of Blue

Hey friends!

 

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

 

I was sitting and waiting for my daughter during gymnastics yesterday and scrolling through facebook on my new smart phone.  (Side note about the phone…waited forever…just got it…love it)  Anyway back to scrolling through facebook…

 

Melissa, from Shabby Love, was sharing beautiful blue photos that she had pinned and it got me thinking about blues in our home. 

 

I totally love all shades of white intermixed with shades of blue.  Such a lovely combination to me.

 

Take a look around with me and see some blues around here.

The other side of this pillow says bonjour but I am keeping it simple and in English today.

I found this wonderful basket Thursday at the flea market. 

 

Also found a beautiful old chippy blue column that I will show you once it has a home.

With the temperatures still so cold outside, the blues inside help brighten the house and my mood.

 

If I have not said it before, “I absolutely cannot wait for spring weather to arrive and to stay”. 

 

Spring can be such a little tease, can’t it?

 

Make sure to come by on Tuesday for our next Girl Time.  This will be our 3rd!!

Love it all - especially the blue shelf and the trunk! I'm thinking of redoing our bedroom this summer and using blues. Right now, I have no blue in my home and think it would be nice in the master.

Blessings to you,

Doreen

Love your suttle blues throughout your home.

I just recently got a smart phone and use it now while waiting while my daughter is at dance class.....what did I ever do without it?

And yes, Spring is a tease. I just can't wait for it to be warm again:-)
