back in Blue ...


I am obsessed right now with the color blue.
At Christmas I did Vintage Aqua in my kitchen and on one of my trees. I mixed in a ton of white and blue dishes and used a lot of silver and other mixed metals.  Since then, I can not get enough of the color.

I told my mom, when I go to market, we are going to be in trouble because the Barn will be transformed into a sea of blue when the product starts rolling in.  Lately that is all I see, my eye is drawn to it.

So when I redid this little spread at the Barn last week.... I couldn't help myself.



Even the curtains.... I had saved some old packing paper... because of the color... love it. But why not use it for curtains, it's cheap and looks awesome.

Vintage Olive buckets

I can't believe how fast these sell, but then again... love them.

another look at the moss roll



I am thinking that I have to put my name on these beauties if they are still their, at the Barn, when I get back from Atlanta. They look good in this vignette but I think they will look even better at my house.  It is so hard to find vintage accent pieces if you are looking for a certain color or patina.

Since my computer sat at the geek squad over the Christmas holidays, I never did post photos of my house.  Because we are all SO over the holidays I am not going to go there.... But, I want to show you the color I am talking about.

Vintage Aqua

My tree and my dishes... and then I had to make my own wine bottle labels.  I couldn't find the right color at the wine shop... so why not make your own.  They actually turned out super cute. 




Aren't they fun.

I hope this post tides you over until I get back.
I will give full report and have pictures of the Atlanta Market as soon as I get home.

I still have not got my photo editing program up to speed. I can't put my photo signature on the pictures... Ugh, always something. So I expect everyone to play nice, No sharing without permission... thanks, I know you all understand.
