blue and white

hi..
hope your weekend was/is good whatever part of the world you're in! it was a relaxing weekend here in sydney with gorgeous warm weather. 
last week i redecorated our dresser for a change with everything blue and white from around this old place, vintage china, nautical bits and pieces, books and shells. i don't think you can go wrong with blue and white, a colour combo i will always love..i know a lot of you love it too.
this is a special piece of furniture to me because it was passed down to us by my parents. the white shelving is always a great place to display my favourite things.
















have a great week!

  1. I had blue and white stuff too, many years ago, but I got tired of it and gave it away :) I had nearly the same plate as you have :)

  2. you are right! you can't ever go wrong with blue and white and how special that it belonged to your folks. love all the blue books and that sweet shrimp plate. Very nice and warm here in Monterey, the sun is shining and we took a nice walk on the beach.

  7. I love blue and white - so crisp and clean. The blue onion dishes are the same ones I chose for our "good" china 34 years ago. Your white hutch is a wondeful piece.

  27. I love your dresser with the blue & white on display - I wish I had a dresser like that!

    I have only become addicted to blue & white decorating in the last couple of years, so it's going to take me a while to get a decent collection together.

    I love your home!
