Do you guys have a favorite room to decorate and to buy things for. I do. Can you guess which one that it is? I’m sure that this isn’t hard.
Yes. It’s our kitchen. I love to go junking and find vintage kitchen “things.” Now, that being said, I don’t enjoy clutter…so when you come to my house it’s not unusual for you to leave with something…because I like to keep my treasures at a minimum.
My newest love is the blue and white Currier & Ives dishes. For years I have had a few blue and white pieces…but the Currier and Ives were made with a blue that captures my heart. It’s a little more on the side of navy and a little shy from purple. Does that make sense? Of course it does. My Dirt Roaders are smart.
What is it about blue that makes my heart sing? It has always been my favorite. Isn’t that a fun thing to know about yourself? It’s always a little sad to me when someone says that they don’t know their favorite color. I have several that I love (that is the creative in me) but I could answer “blue” without hesitation.
For years I didn’t really decorate with blue. Isn’t that crazy? It wasn’t super-trendy for a while. Shame on me. I say that because of this one reason: I have never been happier with my junking finds and my decor…than I am now. I guess that I just needed to hone in on what I really loved and let the rest go. This is a good place to be. Sometimes…I think that it comes with age. Eeeeeeek! lol! Did I just admit that? Please pass the Oil of Olay.
I know that I have asked you all a dozen times if you follow Miss Mustard Seed. I love her blog. I think that it was one of those moments…where you just happen upon someone that has similar tastes and you hear angels singing. Okay…not really..but her style is amazing to me. It’s such a mix of farmhouse style and elegance. I love that. Plus…it’s full of BLUE! 😉 Heavenly. (The baker’s twine that is wrapped around my butter paddle…that was inspired by her photos. I always want to give credit, where credit is due.)
I hope that your day is lovely…after all…it’s Thursday! My favorite! If you have a minute…leave me a comment! I love to hear from you. Tell me your favorite room to decorate and go junkin’ for. I really wanna know!
