Blue and white are my favorite colors, and I have lots of things to share in the coming weeks, including decorating ideas, crafts, and collectibles. Like most collectors, I enjoy visiting antique malls, flea markets, yard sales, and thrift stores. I travel a lot, which means I see far too many things I'd love to own but just don't have room for at home ... or in my studio, or even in my suitcase.
I love seeing how various dealers, collectors, merchants, and friends display their treasures, whatever the setting. And I always have a camera in my pocket or purse, for all those Kodak moments. The photos below were taken at the Village Antiques Mall in Fort Langley, B.C., on my December trip to Vancouver.
These pretty blue-and-white cups and plates remind me of the dinnerware I use at my studio, and would perfect to mix and match with my other favorites.
This is a charming vignette ... the blue transferware platter looks terrific with the dark blue water goblets, the Depression Glass juice tumblers, and the deep purple aubergine salt and pepper shakers.
I love reading your comments, and greatly appreciate it when you leave a note to let me know you stopped by. If you are participating in Blue Monday, I'll be visiting your site sometime this week ... I'm looking forward to seeing all the wonderful Blue Monday photos and getting a little peek inside your world.
