Hello Dear Readers!
I am sure that many of you tuck away things to make room for Christmas decor as I do.
I had many blue and white pieces throughout the house and I kept placing those
pieces that have been displaced in one area.
That area was a demilune table that is in a little hallway that leads to the master bedroom.
As the Christmas decor was being put away, I went to that hallway area
to retrieve some blue and white pieces. But then as I gazed upon all the pretties
on the table and also underneath . . . I thought why not?!!
So a staging area turned into a pretty display of blue and white was born.
I have collected these blue and white pieces over the years from various places and shops.
The trio of vases came from my favorite consignment shop, Always Home in Durham, N.C.
Do you remember the Bombay Company stores? I loved that store.
I discovered a Bombay outlet in Atlanta many years ago
and that is where I purchased the pair of lidded egg cups.
I actually had 6 of these; however, I used 4 of them for mini flower arrangements
to place at each place setting at a dinner party for the guests to take home.
The pair of peacock motif vases by Maitland-Smith that sit under the table
were also from . . . yes . . . Always Home.
The crock filled with flowering branches is a piece that seems to float from room to room.
This blue and white chinoiserie crock was a find in a local furniture store.
This little display of blue and white reminds me a bit of how the Interior Designer,
Mark D. Sikes, who wrote the book, “Beautiful”, displays blue and white collections
on tables, mantels and more.
“Somewhat” similar to this exquisite vignette shown in his book
from a Montecito project. Oh my, how “Beautiful”
I call my display in the little hallway in the Berry Patch House, my “low”
of a “high low project” (remember that show?) with the Mark D. Sikes display being the “high”
I also find this little display/vignette a bit serendipitous. What do you think?
The Christmas decor for the most part is put away; however,
the trees are waiting for me to have a free day to pack them up and . . .
re-appear next Christmas in our new home!
I wish you all a most beautiful day!!!
