Etsy Cottage Style Colour Party! BLUE


A brand new blogging get-together for 2011! If you would like to find out a little bit more about it, you can check it out HERE or click on the pic in my sidebar.

This month's colour is blue. Hmmm. I don't have a lot of blue in our Victorian house here in England, but in our cottage in France, I have a few things! In the little blue bedroom, for example -

A lovely old dark blue trunk, with a little display of blue glass, the sweetest little blue and white teddy, and a matching photo album, and two framed prints -


A gorgeous antique Durham quilt on the bed -


A blue Lloyd Loom chair, which I love -


and a vintage granny square blanket, which goes ever so well with the Lloyd loom chair. Bought years and countries apart, lol, but they are a happy marriage -


A very vintage French game -


Vintage French tin -


A fabulous old wash basin, which I fill with pink or red geraniums in the summer -


A blue and grey felted bead necklage -


Vintage French house numbers, such a gorgeous rich blue and soooo collectable, I had a hard time haggling for these at a vide greniers -


And last but not least, another gorgeous blue glass vase, I adore that colour -


Bit of an eclectic mix, lol. I didn't have time to search through our house here in England for the few blue things I might have, so I chose to show pictures of blues in the cottage in France.
