Blue collection

Today I thought I would post some of the "blues" I've collected this summer.
It all started with these candlesticks from, you guessed it ,Goodwill.  I know
they are not the same pattern but will be fine located on opposite ends of the room.
But first I need to get some 
Brasso on them!

While cruising the Hobby Lobby clearance isle I came across these adorable oriental

I guess the thing that caught my eye was the details of the  facial features.

Although they are not like anything I have in my house, I had to take them home.

Finally, I picked up  this ginger jar at Goodwill to go with my other orphaned blue and white items.
I'm not sure where I'm going to use them, but what's a girl to do when they call your name?
My bonus room is yellow with blue accents so I'm pretty sure I can find them
a home there.

Hope you have a good week and please join me at the following blog parties for lots of fun and decorating  ideas!

  1. I cannot wait until we get our first Hobby Lobby in orlando in the fall! That will be a big day! I just want to live in the clearance aisle you all get the best deals!!! Joannes Fabric is across the parking lot, and has terrible service, this should make them step up their game! I love blue and yellow I bet your room is great!

  2. loved them,
    delicate and beautiful pieces of blue there.

  3. Beautiful blues! Don't you just love Goodwill?! Great bargains! Linda

  4. I never find anything this lovely at GW; perhaps I go to the wrong store.

    Happy Blue Monday, Annette.

  5. Great finds! Thanks for stopping by and saying hi!


  6. I love blue and white anything and you found some great pieces. Thanks so much for coming by.

  7. Blue and white just always has a classic feel to it. I love the candle sticks and I usually don't go for brass. But I like the mix!

  10. What a great find of the blues, and ou had a beautiful vintage collections. I like going to Salvation in our place here.

  11. Good morning Annette, I too am a great fan of Good Will. I am having withdrawal because I haven't been there in 3 weeks. too much going on in my life including our camping trip in the Smokey's with our children. We had a wonderful week there.

    I love your blue thrifty treasures. I have a bedroom in blue and yellow and I love the combination. I like the candle sticks not matching. Much more interesting.

    Thank you for your visit yesterday.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  12. ooh, i love that ginger jar and those candlesticks! putting them in a yellow room would look wonderful!

    so glad you stopped by the cape on the corner, and what a great idea about putting little pumpkins in my apothecary jars! i think i have some, too! i also have little acorns that i hope will work perfectly in the littlest jar.

    hope you are having a great day!
