Niche Metamorphosis

Yesterday we played around with the two niches in the
dining room.  It is an ideal space to show off some of Mom's
extensive blue and white collection.

It did not take long to come up with a design we both liked.

It is really fun to showcase favorite pieces.

Little treasures collected over the years.

And yes ... we are STILL unpacking.  The packers had their own idea of
how to label boxes.  A box may be labeled "dining room" but there are
maybe only two or three items from the dining room and then the rest of
the box is filled with stuff from other rooms.  Each box is a complete

Still searching for lamp shades and missing parts.  Have not found
much that belongs to my kitchen hutch but I am hopeful that this
afternoon I might make some progress in that direction.  Keeping my
fingers crossed!

Happily Joining ~

Bentley was able to visit with his neighbor Toby the
Jack Russell terrier this morning before it started to rain
so hard that they both had to come inside to stay dry.  So
happy the Bentley has a new friend.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. I love blue and white and have a collection myself. I love the displays of it with the dark background.

    I look forward to reading what you have to say about my post.
    Happy Blue Monday, Susan.

  2. The niches look great filled with the blue and white! It really pops against the dark red background. Glad Bentley has a new friend- xo Diana

  3. How wonderful to have such delightful architectural details - those corner niches are fabulous. Love the interiors painted red - that looks so good with the blue and white! Of course, we all love blue and white. It was a great choice!

  4. It looks very pretty against the red backround. I like blue chinaware.

  5. Susan,
    It's always fun to see other's blue and white collections. Very special!

  6. Very Pretty! Love your blue and white collection.

  7. Looks like you and your mom are having some fun. So happy that Bentley has a new friend. So important in a new home. xo Laura

  8. I love your great spirit in the process of moving, lots of hard work and frustration I'm sure!

  9. The blue and white dishes are so pretty in your niches. I think the only way you ever find what's in boxes is if you packed them yourself.
    So glad that Bentley has made a new friend. How is he liking his new home?

  10. Those corner cabinets are perfect for the blue and white collection....looks lovely!!!

    Shelia :)
