I'm Having a Moment

A blue and white moment, that is. Well, it's probably more than a moment. Maybe I should call it my "blue (and white) period." Whatever you want to call it, blue and white pottery/china/ceramics have always been a classic and traditional decorating staple, but now they're starting to show up in more modern interiors which I love. My most recent additions are two jars/vases from a local antique shop that were 50% off - so, I got these two rather large pieces for just $25. Not bad, I thought.
The smaller jar holding the tulips I got during a trade with my sister. You can see the details here.
Obviously, the Champion Cobalt blue of my dining room is a nod to these lovely Asian ceramic pieces. And, can we just talk about the elephant in the room? No, really, there's actually an elephant in my living room now . . . 
Isn't he cute? I just couldn't resist. Picked him up for $6.99 at another little antique mall. Oh, yes, more blue and white. Oh, and did I mention there's a big estate sale tomorrow just loaded with the stuff? I wonder where I'll be come 9 a.m. tomorrow?

If your house needs a little sprucing up, just shoot me an email, and I can help you find the perfect pieces (that won't break the bank) to finish off your space! Want more details? Check out the Services tab at the top of my blog.

Love. I'm building a little collection atop our armoire in the family room. I love the look of them clustered!

Donna - You are so observant! I moved my P1 lamp down to the basement for now (it's been in about every room in the house). The brass lamp is an estate sale find (of course). You can see a better photo of it in this post: http://myinteriorlife.blogspot.com/2011/10/weekend-recap.html

And Tobe - I know, LOVE a grouping of blue and white! The more, the merrier! Hoping to possibly score some more at tomorrow's estate sale.

You said my two favorite words, estate sale. Goosebumps.

We (I) expect a full report. With photos.

Happy hunting! xx-n.

I'm waiting with bated breath to see the goods you walk away from the estate sale tomorrow with. Wishing you more good finds (perhaps more blue and white pottery?)!

Erin said...

Super jealous! You can go ahead and send these my way if you ever tire of them...

I'm having a moment as well. Like, why you have yet to share your estate sale finds from this weekend. Uh, it's Tuesday already.

No pressure. ;0)

I'm having a blue and white moment or decade rather. Can't get enough of this good classic color combo!
