A Little Touch of Blue

Happy Spring everyone!  Don’t you find that in between seasons is the hardest time to be attentive in the kitchen?  I do.  My menus have been lamentable of late, but I’m invigorated by the last few sunny days and motivated to get some spring menus in place!  I was thinking that freshening up a bit in my kitchen might go a long way towards making it cheerier in these spaces, so I added a few touches of blue to my cranberry cabinet.  It’s nothing remarkable really, but just enough to be interesting to the eye I think.  (More about the cranberry cabinet is here.) 

As always, I just gathered from around the house – cheery blue items I already had tucked away in places!  A few things were gifts, but most of the little blue additions have been acquired here and there from the flea market or thrift store. 

I really have a soft spot for the color blue – it’s one of my favorites!   And, I just love a cottage look with mixed and matched dishes gracing the shelves. 

If you find yourself looking longingly toward spring and need a little invigoration of cheer in the kitchen – why not try adding a touch of something blue? 

Is there anything sweeter than this little blue-eyed darling examining her favorite pocket on a vintage apron of my Granny’s? 

And, for the last touch of blue, I thought I’d share a little early spring shot from my front porch.  The mountains aren’t yet green and neither are the pastures around here…but those blue skies are promising!

I hope your early spring days are inspiring some freshness and welcoming sunshine through the windows!

  1. I will never understand how the color blue was ever associated with sadness. It is such a cheery, spirit lifting color to me. I have to have it in my kitchen (aren't we birds of a blue feather) and my bedroom. All others rooms are just bonus!

  2. I love your post on spring and the color blue in your cabinet. Blue is one of my favorite for accents. But husband decided one day to paint most of our rooms in blue and I got sick of to much blue. In our new home we only have beige walls, except for the bathroom. But I can change colors in the linens and decorations anytime I want.
