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
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?
