Shopping the Cottage ~ Blue and White

As many of you know, I have started a few big re~decorating
projects at the cottage.
I am painting

Searching for new fabrics and more.
It all gets a bit pricey ~ so I shop the cottage.
Since I love blue and white, I'm pulling out tea pots,
tea cups, lamps and more to re~arrange
and have some fun creating new vignettes.

Blue and white always looks so clean and fresh!

I am using what I have to be as nifty and thrifty as possible.
After I finish the latest "honey do list", I think I'll relax
with a cup of tea and...

Pay a visit to these fun Tuesday Parties:
