The Beauty of Blue & White

To Celebrate 600 followers on Pinterest and 400 followers on my Shannon's Shanonigins Facebook page, I wanted to share some of my favorite pins from my Board "Romancing Blue and White" http://pinterest.com/shannonimlay/romancing-blue-white/  I love this color combination even more in the Summer, it's cool and calming influence has always made me smile.


This ethereal vignette from The Charm of Home, captures, innocence, sweetness and all the beauty of blue and white, I won't forget these forget me not's...sigh


Take it outside. The only way to make a picnic more charming and delightful is to add the loveliness of blue and white linens and dishes.


Blue and white Spode plates, white lace linens, cut crystal and fresh flowers, this tablescape is pure romance and perfection.


This tablescape shows the international appeal of blue and white, the Chinese tea cup, the English dishes and the French Rooster meld together seamlessly for one charming table.

An Elegant blue and white cake....I'm hoping there's chocolate underneath there


Decidedly English Country, this beautiful Pine hutch loaded with blue and white Spode Transferware just about took my breath away. I can just imagine it it the kitchen of an English Country home.


Speaking of Decidedly English, who could resist this beautiful tea? Even the cookies (or should I say biscuits) are beautifully decorated in blue and white. Stunning!

I can't tell you how thrilled I am to see wallpaper making a comeback, it's been a long waiting game for me because I've always loved wallpaper and this one speaks to my very heart. When Mark and I bought our first home (a Victorian Cottage) we wallpapered the kitchen in blue and white. We loved it!

This sink actually makes me swoon. It's me, pure me, I really should have this sink, lol

Blue and white fabrics and dishes reflecting off the lake. Be still my heart.

Did you know that blue is the rarest color in flowers? They have never been able to breed a blue rose. So I suppose we will have to continue to adore blue and white dishes, and linens. I hope you enjoyed this walk through the timeless combo of blue and white.  I hope it enchants you as it continues to enchant me.
