Am I blue
A long-standing staple of the gracious home is collections.They can be many things--silver cups, Halcyon Days enamels, Herend figurines, Staffordshire, et al...there's no limit. One of the most popular kinds of collections is the color-based one...and blue seems to be the go-to shade.
I have long been a blue--particularly a blue-and-white--fan. Our master bedroom is blue toile, our upstairs hall is Williamsburg blue toile, and on and on. Downstairs I have a collection of blue export which I adore. Most is original and inherited, a few other pieces have been acquired by moi the traditional way: American Express!
Are you a blue buff? Please share!

Join me as I celebrate the bounty of beauty in all its forms: fashion, homestyle, accessories and everyday richness...as I juggle the roles of Mommy, wife, daughter, dog mommy, creative director, Zumba instructor, volunteer...all with more than a passing glance backward to an old-school, classic time when style was a way of life
