When I first started with our kitchen remodel, my husband asked me what color I was going to put with the white. "Blue", I said. Of course as he rolled his eyes, but I could see the approval. No matter how much I try to veer away from it, blue always comes back into my life. I'm beginning to realize that I surround myself with the colors that I love, grey or greige and blues. They remind me of the sky, which is georgous where I live in the Rocky Mountains, so clear and bright; the water, which is one of my true loves, and that is a constant peace for me. White is also a true love for me, it is pure, wholesome, divine and you can literally run in any direction with it. So I'm running with it...and taking some blue with me, too.
This scale I picked up last month while antiquing with my mother in law, I love the old chippy paint of the blue scale and its natural patina was so beautiful to me. It set me back $6...and the man in the store, he gave me a card with a "hug" on it to pass on to others, that was a good day. Right now its holding my napkins in my kitchen.
This bowl I scored at a garage sale a few weeks ago. It too has the same patina and chippy paint. This set me back $1. I'm a bargain nut, so this was right up my alley. I had no idea what I would do with it once I got it home, but I had a pretty good idea. For now its resting nicely on top of my fridge holding my linen tablecloths.
