Savvy For Blue Style

A cool blue door, a blue chevron bow on a  wreath, two blue 

antique jars, a shimmering blue pool.   What could all of 

these items have in common - Blue - and when you live in a 

State as hot as Texas, anything that looks cool, will make you 

feel cool, and that has to be a good thing.



Our daughter recently re-painted her front door. I love the color

she chose-cool turquoise. When she asked for a welcoming 

wreath, I made my way to Hobby Lobby and grabbed the last

roll of blue chevron ribbon.  As I was adding the last twig of ivy..








And adjusting the bow, I put her wreath on our antique 

armoire.   Amazingly enough just that touch of blue seemed to

make our bedroom feel cooler and breezy.




This is when I began to think about adding more blue to our

own home.  





I found these darling Blue vintage mason jars at a little antique 

store in Oklahoma, while visiting our youngest daughter.  The 

owner of the booth shared with me some information 

on choosing vintage jars.  The more defects the jar has, the 

more of a collectible it is. I suppose this is because it 

verifies that they are not reproductions.




You might notice the pink I have sneakily added in! 

Wink, wink...you know I love my pink!





And then, there is the beautiful outdoors and the cool waters

of the swimming pool.



Soft blues, vibrant blues, there are a myriad of choices.  






Do you have a favorite blue?
