Turning Up The Blues

I got this large ginger jar as a birthday gift and planned for it to go here on the chest.

I haven't done all that much with the classic blue and white in my decorating but I've always admired it.  I rummaged around the house and found a couple more blue and white pieces and created this vignette.

A little more Asian influence.

I ordered the large ginger jar from The Enchanted Home after I saw she was having a sale.   The little blue lidded jar came from Bombay long ago.  I believe it was sold for putting potpourri in.  The top would allow the aroma to come through.  I've put a tea light inside of it and which has a nice affect too!

In a quest to add some blue and white several years back I ordered these dishes which are labeled Andrea by Sadek.  I found them in my dish closet and had forgotten about them!

I played with the arrangement several different ways and finally decided this was the best look.  

A beautiful sunny morning!



  1. Very handsome ginger jar, Liz. Blue and white is such a classic and one that my Mama loved. I used to use it in my living room. Glad you are having a sunny day, we are as well and it surely is welcome! ♥

  2. Hi Liz,
    What is it about blue and white together. It just makes you feel happy. I want to find a spot in my house for some blue and white. Have a great week.

  3. Looks lovely! I've always really liked blue and white - like my Liberty Blue dishes. You've made a really pretty vignette to refresh the tabletop.

  4. That small plate looks a lot like Ralph Lauren’s “Mandarin” design! It’s beautiful! I’m trying to go blue and white in my dining room this summer, and this is inspiring.

  5. Looks great Liz and I am loving the mirror too!


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
