Turning Blue


Hello, Dear Ones! Yep, that's right! I'm turning Blue. Now it's not because I'm too cold or have been holding my breath too long. It's because I've been bringing Blue into my kitchen.

I really love to decorate my deep corners in the kitchen as I can poke so much stuff there. You see? Blue.

I poked down my big ole Blue Willow platter by Churchill to be the backdrop for this Blueness. I have used my Blue biscuit jar too. It's really not vintage but it is almost 20 years old and holds tea bags.

Since I'm in my Blue Willowness mode, I just had to poke in my oil and vinegar jars. See the little black dot on the oil jar? It's a dot of paint and it's not going any where. Believe me, I've scrubbed and scrubbed until I really was Blue in the face but it did not budge!

This is an olden butter tub, I think that's what it is. I just love the scenes on Blue Willow dishes don't you?

If you visit me often, you know I love the yard birds ~ Roosters and Hens. Here is a darling little Blue hen candy dish sitting on a tiny glass stand. She looks so Blue, doesn't she? :) I just amaze myself sometimes. 

Well, this is one corner in my kitchen that is just as Blue as can be. But not in a sad way. No, no Nannette! Not sad at all! :) Just so happy to be filled with Blue.

Here's my other deep kitchen corner that I poked in some more Blue.

Darling little ole Blue Rooster just looking as cute as a Blue button!

See my Blue bowl filled with Blue tea towels? Oh, my goodness! I do believe I should have ironed that front Blue tea towel as I see a wrinkle! A Blue wrinkle at that!

I'm on the lookout for some more olden dough rollers. The first one with the green handle belonged to my grandmother and she called this her 'rollin' pin'! ;) The one with the red handle came from a Thrift shop.

I love to poke large platters in to ground my little corner vignettes and this a very colorful one with some Blue!

Schooching over a little on the counter top is another little vignette filled with Blueness. I've poked down a cake stand and tossed a doily on it ~ this reminded me of pie crust dough falling over the side of a pie pan! I'm kinda crumbly like that, you know! ;) I have poked some salt and pepper shakers here by Spode, but I don't remember the pattern.

This pretty Blue and white gravy boat and underplate was a give away I won from Cass at That Old House a couple of years ago. She's so pretty and sporting a hydrangea awaiting Spring. She is such a cheerful Blue one! :)
Well, I just wanted to show you one more little vignette here in the kitchen! 

I truly love love this olden vintage spice set with all of the little Roosters on the jars. Can you really love love little olden vintage spice sets with little Roosters on the jars, you may ask? Well, you bet your cockadoodledoos you can! ;)

I still have some Blueness to show you...little Blue and white napkin rings poked under a cupcake cloche sitting atop a Fostoria stemmed base. Isn't this sweet? Blue sweetness!

What? Something is just not right here! That little olden vintage spice jar is not supposed to be laying down on it's side on my countertop! No, no Nannatte!

Something is just not right! I believe I've said that before. No, no Nannette! I've said that already too, haven't I?

That little stinker! Do you see what this tiny little Rooster has done? He kicked out the spice jar and then he hopped in the opening. Well, he is really a handsome little thing, isn't he, and he has no Blue on at all! He's such a little ham. I have to tell you that this little tiny Rooster and Hen were given to me by Ceekay from Thinking of Home. Aren't bloggers the most sweetest Blue ones ever?

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Am I Blue

Am I blue
Am I blue
Ain't these tears in my eyes tellin' you
Am I blue
You would be too
If your plans with your man
Done fell through
There was a time
I was the only one
And now I'm the sad and lonely one, lonely, lonely
Was I gay, until today
Now he's gone and we're through
Am I blue

Oh, you know I'm blue
Oh, you make me, make me so blue
Ain't these tears in my eyes tellin' you
Oh, you makin' me so blue
You know, you know, know you do
Now my plans with my man
They done fell through

There was a time
That I was his only one
And now I'm the sad and lonely one, lonely
Was I gay, until today
But now he's gone and we're through
Am I blue
~ sung by Ella Fitzgerald
