Blue Tea Cup Tuesday
Blue is not my color even though it's probably the most popular color in the world. I have nothing against it, it's just not for me...having said that, my master bathroom is blue. When we moved in this house about 16 years ago, Eric said go for it, as far as decorating it...so I did, but he just had one request, that I use blue in one room. I tried to opt for the garage but he wasn't going for it, so I settled for our bath...which extended to our bedroom..so now, I have two rooms of blue that I brake up with gold, cream, and white. I got use to it and so did he went I incorporated a blue tea cup in the bath along with pictures of them...I know, only me would put kitchen ware in this room...
Here's the tea cup sitting on top of an old vintage storage cabinet
and my window sill that contain lots of blue....loving the light through this color...
and here is the tea cup in a little vignette I arranged on my bed along with my reading glasses..
I purchased this cup in a the little Dutch coastal town up north from here called Solvang when we were first married. Eric asked, "were ya gonna put that ?..."in the bathroom of course".
Just one cup and one saucer. It has Duchess, bone china, made in England and Genevieve on the underneath. It's white with royal blue hanging baskets with bows and very detailed floral pattern along the edges along with gold..as well as the rim and handle.
Again I'd like to thank Martha and for some reason I've been forgetting to thank Terri...so thank you ladies for inviting me to tea...no matter where your tea cup is.
