Welcome dear blogging friends. For the next few posts I will be taking you back to some of my older posts and show you just how much my little nest has evolved over my first year of blogging.
My favorite color is BLUE, I like all the shades of blue from Aqua, to Turquoise. They are all beautiful soft colors that I feel very comfortable with. Because of that I use these colors in my home and I also wear a lot of blue.
Here are some peeks of blue that I have used in my little nest.
Lovely blue pillow covers.
Even a blue medallion on Kaun Yin. I love decorating with blue Ball jars.
Aqua ruffled table topper.
Old blue chest and accessories
Oh I love it when the sun shines through the window and lights up the blue jars. It’s so pretty and sparkles all over the kitchen.
Lovely vintage plate that was my great grandmother’s with blue flowers.
Even a blue Madonna.
I remember the winter that my Mom made this beautiful blue and white cross stitch quilt. I’m so glad that she decided to give it to me. I really cherish it.
I painted some old books in different blue colors, I use them to give color to vignettes.
My grandmother helped me make this doily when I was young and of course I picked blue thread to make it.
How about a blue pumpkin?
This is one of my favorite blue finds, a vintage blue bread box.
I love wearing pieces of turquoises jewelry, I have many beautiful pieces. It must be from me growing up on a horse farm and all of those horse shows that I showed in. I have received many as gifts.
Blue fabric covered boxes, I love to cover boxes they look so chic. For a closer look click on the photo above.
For my first give away on my blog I made a blue and white a Christmas table runner and two pillow covers. Kris from http://junkchiccottage.blogspot.com/ won this.
How about a lovely blue wreath? It is now hanging in my bedroom.
Yes, last year for Christmas I did everything in blues. For a look back click the picture above or go to my header and click on Christmas 2014.
These sweet little birds now live at Cecilia’s at http://mythriftstoreaddiction.blogspot.com/. I found this sweet table runner at a antique store several years ago and I knew it just needed to come home with me and then to Cecilia. It’s so funny how life has a way of working out. Go to Cecilia’s blog for the whole story.
A blue wooden love seat lives in my sitting area. At one time the white wicker end tables were a turquoise blue.
This is one of my favorite blues. Love it, it makes baking a dream.
I will end with the aqua blue apron that I made and am giving away to one of my lucky visitors. To enter all you have to do is comment on what your favorite color is and why. I hope that you enjoyed the little tour through my home over the last year and how I took my love affair with blue through out it. Have a beautiful day!
