Does anyone else feel they need a change from the festive colours of red & gold? I always feel the need for fresher colours in the lead up to our Spring & my love of blues seems to arise.
I have a lot of blue & white china at home & this is some of the ways I used it in the past at home

Our dining room still has its winter colour of the purple heather, tartan curtains . My regular readers know that I like to change things around. I remembered that my eclectic collection of blue & white bits had not come out in a while so I brought them in from their container in the garage.
Does anyone else love unpacking something they have not had out for a while? The joy of remembering why you collect things you love ...
My two busts - one black, one white, are a permanent fixture just because it is the only place they seem to fit - she seems to approve ...
I love the pairings of pink with the blue & whites so I rummaged around my large selection of faux or silk flowers. Pink & white go well with blue & white me thinks ...
It takes time to curate a collection of things that you like & these blue & white things have been collected over time & from many places but they all go together ...
I am always planting up some plants, bulbs or such likes because I really like greenery in the house, it brings a certain freshness to the decor. Sometimes, the bulbs might have been shop bought when mine have failed to bloom on time. I am really terrible about getting hyacinths to flower near Christmas & even worse at getting my 5 year old poinsettia to develop red bracts for Christmas, but these are challenges all gardeners own up to. For some reason, I am good at orchids & mine like this corner of the dining room & so they stay there where it is light & bright.
