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!

Plus d'un peu bleue,

Total blue buff! Found some gorgous blue pieces at a restaurant in Ixtapa but would have had to rent a car and travel hours to reach the source. One of these visits. I'll email you a couple of pics I took while lusting over my breakfast...XXOO
