Singin' The Blues (T)

After all the red I had up for Valentine's Day I decided to cool things off with some blues!

I went through my dishes and accessories to put together this all blue and white display on the plate rack and table below.

I chose my fleur de-lis salad plates and the dinner plates to go together since they have the same pattern.    I stuck two navy blue candles in the miniature flower pots.

The two small  plates are part of a set of 4 that came from Terrain a couple of years ago.  They're hand hand painted designs so no two are exactly alike.  The creamer cow came from Pottery Barn a long time ago.

The fleur de-lis salad plates came from Sur La Table 2 years ago and the dinner plates came from One King's Lane a good while back.

The large platter/plates also came from Sur La Table.  I like to use them for soup and a sandwich.  

During one of my visits to Hobby Lobby I spotted this cute sugar and creamer set and decided I had to have it.  It goes pretty nicely with all the other pieces.

Mr. Rooster got a new home and I added a few more pieces with blue to the vignette.

A 2002 Best of Country Cooking by Southern Living cook book fit right in!

I didn't think this pitcher was going to work but I gave it a try and liked it.  I have a much smaller one too- both found at T.J. Maxx several years ago.

The etagare got a little updating too.

I have been looking for a crate for the bottom shelf and found a rather reasonably priced one at T.J. Maxx that fit there nicely.  I'm still working on what I'm going to store in it yet.

 I spotted this blue and white ball in a Pottery Barn catalog and since I was ordering something for Easter I quickly ordered it before they were gone.  There is a larger size but I guess it's already sold out on-line.

It has a flat bottom with a velvet like fabric so you can set it on things without it rolling or marking the surface.

I set up a quick tablescape using my everyday dishes by Mikasa and our everyday flatware.

 Sorry for the quickly put together centerpiece! 

Thanks for joining me and my "Sining' The Blues"!



  1. Liz, everything looks beautiful! You have such a lovely collection! Your table is dressed perfectly! By the way, I have that same rooster, and I love it! I hope that you enjoy your day!!!

  2. Very pretty vignettes Liz! Your blue pieces look lovely in your home. If I'm seeing correctly, it appears you still have snow. Sending you warm thoughts this afternoon. ♥

  3. Hi Liz, Everything looks fabulous. I love the blue with the black anchor pieces. I've been thinking about doing this in my dining room and this may be just the inspiration I need. Your table setting is so inviting. Have a great day and weekend ahead. xo

  4. Hi Liz,
    Love all your blue and white. Looks so fresh and pretty. Your table scape is so pretty too.

  5. Your little sugar and creamer are pretty.
    Can't wait to too what you have planed
    for your garden this year.

  6. I see so much I like...but your blue and white dishes and the white rooster are my favorites. I am on a blue kick ...so this table suits me to a T. Sheila

  7. I know you enjoyed creating this lovely vignette, Liz! It does have a calming effect and is a joy to see!

  8. Oh what gorgeous pieces, Liz!!! I am still trying to put things away - but also spending a great deal of time with the grand. I fell last week and jacked up my poor skeletal system and need to get back to see the chiro - had a massage yesterday that helped but I am sooooo sore. I keep thinking how many steps to the basement up and down and up and down to put things away and get things out and suddenly it just is not getting done............I'm hurtin' for certain! : - (

    BUT I must say you've inspired me to persevere! Your home looks awesome. I need to hire you to come redo mine! : - )

    Hugs and happy weekend to you - ♥♥♥

  9. I really love all the blue & white! I love your plate rack, too!

  10. A pretty look you have created with your blue and white. It all flows perfectly. I know it can be fun re-decorating your house. The table looks fresh and pretty. Gotta love that rooster.

  11. Next to red and white, I adore blue and white for its fresh, crisp and cool essence. Your displays on the pretty plate rack are charming, Liz.


  12. What a lot of eye candy! You have some amazing blue and white pieces and you've put them together wonderfully. I really like how you've displayed dishware and table pieces as decor - so much better than always having them in the cupboard when not in use. Those fleur de lis plates are gorgeous!

  13. When I see what so many of you do with blue, I feel like I am missing something as I've never been much of a blue person. I'm wondering why that is because I like the color.

  14. HI Liz,
    Hope this finds you doing well. Our paths have not crossed much lately.
    Loved all your pictures, everything looks so lovely, I love blue and white.....it is so pretty together.
    Great job on your accessorizing....so nice to have a change every so often, isn't it.
    I am looking forward to starting some Spring decorating soon.
    Blessings, Nellie
