|Blue Willow Note Cards from The Pink Pagoda|
As soon as it was delivered knew I wanted to stage this grey & fuchsia lacquered secretary with blue & white. Where does one go for blue & white accessories??? Straight over to The Pink Pagoda ~ stat! Wanted to frame her darling blue willow note cards in gold frames. Originally I was going to do 3 identical cards framed; one on each shelf. Jennifer offered to do 2 other designs to work with her blue willow note card size. Love them lined up together. How adorable are these??? Her prints are available here. She is wonderful to work with!
The miniature blue & white Staffordshire pups also came from Jennifer. So sweet! These are available in her shop's porcelain collection.
|Nancy Drew Books covered in white wrapping paper|
I needed small books & wanted them to be white so I scavenged my Mother's basement & found an extensive collection of Nancy Drew's and covered four of them in white wrapping paper. Love them with these petite blanc de chine statues.
Jennifer really prompted my passion for blue & white. If you are new here; I have never used blue & white in my decor. Crazy: right??? I am old as dirt & yes, I have been living under a rock.... Both of these books are a must for a blue & white aficionado. Flair by the late Joe Nye & A Passion for Blue & White by Carolyne Roehm.
Oh yeah; here is the before sitting in the shop where I found it; a beautiful piece with great bones & detail. The fretwork was in great shape & the height was perfect.
Check out The Pink Pagoda today for The Blue & White Bash where all Jennifer's friends are sharing their love of blue & white.
