Blue and White and Wood



Pretty blue and white pansies....





An old blue and white utensil bought about 28 years ago in an antique shop in San Jose, California...



I love my old kitchenware.....and have been collecting it a long, long time......



If you didn't know......I love the crisp, clean simplicity of the combination of blue and white!



Hope tomorrow brings all good things to you .........

I love this. Makes me realize how little I have in my home -- I need to change this!

Thanks so much for yet another little peek into your life.

I love the crispness of the blue and white with the roughness of the wood. Have a great Thursday. xo Joan

Hi Laura,
I love how you put your collections together. Maybe it's the old fleamarket vendor coming out in you. Hope you get your magazine soon. Let me know when it gets there.

Hi Laura,
Peaceful photos. That old blue and white utensil was possibly bought down the street from my grandparent's home in San Jose. Wouldn't that be something? I love visiting with you.

Thank you SO much my sweet friend on the other side of the world!! ;O)

You made a post here for me about my giveaway! Thank you for your sweet words about my blog and a lot of your blogfriends came to Livs Lyst and joined the contest. Because of you! You`re so sweet! :O)

It`s good to be back in the old country. Norway! I love my land. It`s beautiful and a good place to rest and live my life ;O)
I had a very nice vacation with my two friends though. Lovely weather everyday and it was delicious to take baths in the Mediterranean!!!

But you understand that it was pretty nice to come home to my dearest boyfriend too! I`m so happy Laura! He`s the best I can get!! And I feel lucky!!

Sweet thoughts from me ;O)

I love blue and white too but so much of my stuff is pink I have a hard time incorporating blue into anything! Oh well, I'll enjoy yours LOL.

All the best,

Well, if you know me , you know I am not a fan of the blue and white duo...however, when forced to do it, I always add a heavy dose of wood. thanks

J'adore ce bleu passé, n'est-ce pas un presse-citron le vieil ustensile que tu as acheté en Californie ?
