blue & white

Summertime in our kitchen means blue and white. I’m not a big “holiday decorator” but love to change things up seasonally.


I’m very fickle when it comes to decor, but one thing that I never tire of is blue and white. It’s so classic.


The fun for me is finding and collecting it. Every single piece I own has come from thrift stores or garage sales for pocket change.


I love that none of it “matches,” yet it all works together.

On facebook the other day, I shared my latest finds…Myott English china patterns “Lattice” and “Finlandia.”



Do you follow me on Facebook? I update my page just about daily with thrifty finds and other tidbits. 🙂




Happy July!

    I like the restrained/subtle red, white and blue! My kind of holiday decorating (or it would be if I ever managed to decorate anything…….)

    I love blue and white and the flags and red and white straws add just the right amount of color. Very pretty.

      Hi Carole, It is an awesome thrift store. Go to their website to see if there are any locations near you.

    LOVE the subtle details. Perfect. I’m not a big holiday decorator and love seeing others with this philosophy. BTW, gorgeous dinnerware!
