A little blue and white……

The other day as I looked around the living room I felt like the
coffee table could use a little color…..
ginger jar4

I found this really pretty blue and white ginger jar……
It was just the perfect size and
complimented the other blue and white pieces I already had in the room.
I bought the white piece of coral at Homegoods a few weeks back when we were in KC.
It was $22 which is a steal when you consider how
much acrylic blocks sell for all on their own not including the piece of coral.
Have a great week my friends!!!!

Hope to see you there!

Pretty addition Des!! I've been on the hunt for another ginger jar to match the one I already have...have plans for using the two in a Christmas display.

Love it all! I just spotted your huge shell on your hutch-I'm on the hunt for one of those. All looks great Des.

Adds so much character! It highlights your gorgeous wall color. What is the name of the paint color? We are building a house right now & are looking for a whole-house color. We've decided to go with a light blue/light grey-blue. Love the effect with the hardwoods!

I like this, Des! And I am in love with your coffee table. I have a neutral living room and I use a bit of pale aqua/blue as an accent. :)

Beautiful ginger jar, Des! It looks great on your coffee table (which I still love, by the way!) I got several blue and white pieces, mostly vases and bowls, from The Bombay Co. right before they went out of business. I should bring them out and use them more often. Hope you enjoy your evening!

Hi, Des! Shirley from Housepitality Designs told me you live in the KC area. I do, too! In Lee's Summit! Grew up in KC. It's good to "meet" you! I love knowing there are other bloggers right here in the general vicinity!

Your home is beautiful! It has a relaxed yet elegant style that I can really appreciate. I love those transom windows above the staircase and the dining room entry. Very cool! Adds a lot of character!

Happy Wednesday!

Your home is just gorgeous, Des. You always find just the right accent to bring to each space. Love blue and white.

That piece of coral is so pretty, Deserae. Don't ya just love Home Goods? I actually went there today and bought my first Christmas décor. You may have seen it. It's a white snow globe with four red cardinal birds on a tree branch. I just loved it.

It's always a pleasure seeing bits of your home.
