Clue Into Blue.... It is Blue & White Bash Day


Blue & White porcelain & ceramic accents go all bold & beautiful on my bookshelves along with the selection of white ceramic. The flat vase is sitting pretty with the original oil of a boat dock in Oriental, NC.



My pictures are bit blurry (ok totally blurry)  but you get the drift.... sorta'???  Sun was blazing in & I needed to get these posted for the Blue & White Link Up today over @ The Pink Pagoda. Maybe if you squint they aren't too bad.... ok I know they are down right crummy.... sorry.


Love how the blue & white compliments the old school brass & touches of gold. Now you know those little monkeys are adorable even blurry.


Below is a Kyle Highsmith of the home I grew up in. He is sorta' a big deal here in North Cackalacky*


*A nickname for North Carolina. Mainly used by people (military transplants) who are originally from the West Coast, especially from CA and more specifically Socal;) The word is used in good humor often to make light fun of the red neck ways of the South.

Now Head on Over to The Blue & White Bash @ The Pink Pagoda & see what everyone else is showing ~ it's an amazing symphony of blue & white!

    1. THX, they were a work in progress..... took me while to figure it out. I think Sherry needs to sell book shelf styling on line; I would pay big bucks to have mine done.

    1. I was saying I wish you would pimp yourself out for internet shelf styling. I would pay a King's Ransom. These book shelves were the reason I drank in Dec. & January. February am drinking over my shelves in my dining room..... Pleeezzzzzzzzzzzzzz set up a shelf shop!

    1. THX! I am trying to talk Sherry @ Design Indulgence into doing "cyber styling" as it is an art that does not come natural to me.....

    1. How kind! The green coordinates with my kitchen island & I love it! Most of the collection is courtesy of my sister who had a Bombay Outlet in her back door & she collected it "back in the day." Jennifer has large ginger jars in her shop. I have been scouting ebay, Marshal's, Ross & OKL for fill in stuff.

  13. Your house is like a jewelry box. It's absolutely FULL of gorgeousness. I think you should put a section on your blog of house photos. Also, these rooms would make for glorious magazine pages!! Thank you so much for linking this up today, Paige!
