The Blue and the White

Hello everyone,
   I have enjoyed putting together some color themes for you while I am gone.

I love the soft blue and white of these dishes.

Little Miss Abby with a hat and pearls a girl after my own heart!
I am looking forward to visiting you all soon!

Take care,

Beautiful post Carolyn. I hope you are enjoying your break..we are home safe and sound and loved our Victoria vacation!
I think your soft blue china is my favorite after the red of course.
Sweet Abby is adorable! Our little Vayda is 16 months now and she is expecting a little brother or sister in December so we are so excited!
Enjoy the rest of your break!

Hi Carolyn.. Have not been here for a while and everything is looking as beautiful as ever... The blue and white plates are so splendid and your little girl has the most translucent blue eyes! If only they can capture that pretty shade of blue in the porcelain...

Little Miss Abby reminds me of my grandmother's porcelain doll. She must love coming to tea at her grandmother's house!

Marica said...

Il tuo blog, le tue foto, la tua dolce bimba mi lasciano senza parole!

Complimenti per tutto...)



Stefan said...

Dear Carolyn,

thank you so much for sharing so much from your beautiful home and garden!

I especially love the soft, inviting atmosphere of both your guest rooms. So close to my pale, Swedish taste!

I'm inspired to fashion our little gust room under the eaves in the palest of green and cream - like yours - and for a Swedish touch I would add a couple of pillows, and perhaps a ruffled bedskirt in the same shade of whispered, green gingham...

greetings from Sweden, Ingela

Cindy said...

Your little Abby is such a little doll and such a little lady, too.
Your blue toile is so pretty.
I hope you are having a great time away.
Hugs, Cindy

Heaven's Walk said...

Linda said...

Hi Carolyn, I'm loving the blue and white. I have collected many plates in my antiquing and know that it is a time to change up.
I have started a new blog to show my antiques, flea market finds, etc. Hope you will come along for the ride.

Beautiful! Your photos have perfectly caught the lovely blues and the care and time you obviously spend getting such awesome shots is not lost. I have so enjoyed catching up with your blog the last few days. The lighting is exquisite in your cottage and your flowers...oh those gardens! It is such a treat to get to see such lovely blooms along with your china. Please share with us the names of your patterns...they are so sweet, especially those roses teacups!
One day I hope to have grand-daughters to have teas with...yours are just darling!
Thank you for sharing so much beauty with us. Better than a magazine!!!
Blessings, Doni
