Shall We Look For Blue In My Home
|March 23, 2013||Posted by Helen under Home Decor & Travel|
Hi there! First off, do you love blue? If so, do you love it unconditionally? Hmmm, you’re wondering what I had for dinner that caused me to ask that weird question about BLUE! Notice the blue pitchers on the mantle…how did that happen? That’s the once “ugliest fireplace ever”…really it was awful.
The truth is that I once wore more blue clothes than anyone I knew…ages ago in high school. Maybe I burned myself out on blue…can one really do such a thing? I grabbed the challenge today and thought where would I find blue in this house. OK, Bob and I each have a few clothes that have blue in them or are solids. Yes, solid blue is on my side of the closet more than I realized. And no, I’m not showing that area of the master suite..somethings ya just don’t want to see. Check out this photo and see where you see the blue…not the dust…the blues, please!
OK, we’re all standing in the foyer of my home. What do you see with blue. It’s not the large mirror, that we are the third generation in Bob’s family to have it to enjoy. And it isn’t the credenza (maybe I didn’t look close enough…hmm). Just look at the lavender and blue…light blue flowers sitting right there in plain view. And you might have to click the photo 2 or more times to zoom in to see the other blue location. Give up…of course it’s the blue on the platter near the verge!
On the electrified tank lamp, take a look at that globe and the pale blue daisy…maybe not a daisy, but we can call it that! I think you might recall this photo from my recent post about the landing upstairs above our family room. More blue flowers…yeah, sure I don’t do blue! How did all this blue enter my home without my knowledge? You do recall, that I once loved blue to the point where Mother would plead with me not to get any more blue in my wardrobe! I’m thinking this post is telling me I still love blue! And in truth, I must admit I’m loving it more all the time. My friends win this one. Thanks, Helen
Enjoy your weekend and enjoy these blog parties, too.
