All I See Is Blue...



Have you ever noticed that when you focus on something, all of the sudden you will see it everywhere? 
I've been loving the color blue for the last month since I bought an old, blue-gray tool box at a flea market sale.
I added some blue faux hydrangeas and then dug out some old blue floral pillow shams, from my bedding stash, to spread the blue to the love seat.
At PotteryBarn the other day, I zoned right in on these blue plaid pillow covers...
And, in their kitchenwares, the little blue swirl colanders almost jumped right into my arms! Love at first sight and all...

I feel kinda like the kid in the movie, The Sixth Sense...
"I SEE...BLUE...STUFF"

I never use to notice blue at all! Now blue is all around me, and I can't resist it!
I have to guard against getting obsessed with it again though. I did get carried away, back in the late 80's, with country blue. 
I ended up almost painting the whole inside of the house with it. And that's all I'm going to say about that...



Thanks for dropping by!

    I think blue is such a warm, cozy color in a home and there is a lot of blue in my home too.

  4. Your blue looks very well in your home and I love the colanders. Unfortunately, I have no blue in my home. It's mostly red's, yellow and some black accents.

    Have a wonderful Mothers Day.

  7. Blue and white is such a classical combination that it never looses it's appeal or goes out of style. I love it too.

  15. Blue and white has been my favorite mixture since forever, even when I was 14 those colors talked to me. My first set dishes was blue and white.
    Your choices are wonderful and I am needing a new sofa and I like the color of your sofa with the blue and white pillows
