  13. Don't toss and turn to much while sleeping or you may just find yourself in the hospital! Loving the beautiful images you found in your blue story ~ that dress is gorg but I think the wreath is my favorite. xo

  14. Dear Jacqueline, This posting made me realise that I decorate with blue more often than I think. Just loking around, I see shades and touches of blue in much of my upholstery, in glassware and in ceramics. Never, however, in my clothes or paint colours.

    The dried Hydrangea heads that you show look wonderful, and, as they have been so plentiful this year, I am inspired to gather them up and use them indoors.

  49. What a great ode to blue and my little blue girl Laura. Now I love that bed but it would have to be closer to earth for me to spend the night there. I may have to steal that tag idea....it's simple but elegant and I have a gazillion buttons. Always looking for a new tag idea when I send out those mags... ah know?

  61. Hello Dearest Jackie ~
    I'm a big fan of blue (although, white always wins my heart's truest affection!).
    You will be pleased to know that we found a fantastic vintage dollhouse for the crumb's Christmas present. It is tucked away for only our eyes and hands (to renovate and repair). Such a fun project! And most exciting, is we have decided (at this point) to design/decorate in Shabby Chic. I can't wait to share photos with you (hoping sooner than later)!
    Wishing you a wonderful remainder of the weekend and a blissful week ahead!
    Bisous,
    Melissa
