Blue & Yellow Tabletop

Hello, Bloggy friends. It's Monday, and I'm joining Smiling Sally for Blue Monday. See all the beautiful blues over there for this fun meme.

Also joining Barb over at Grits and Glamour for the first time for Tabletops, Vignettes and Favorite Accessories. Be sure to visit her for all the beautiful ideas.

Today, I redid my cutting board table and wall shelf in blues and yellows.

I did it to match my blue and yellow tablescape I did for Thursday's tablescape at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch. (Just ignore that dust mop over there in the corner. Oops! :)

Closeup of table top.

You can't really tell from these pics, but my wall is a soft yellow.

Oh! I just LOVE my BLUE cow pitcher I got yesterday at Cracker Barrel. They have such wonderfully, cute things!

The forsythia isn't real, but today, I noticed the real one in my backyard is beginning to bloom!

The blue and yellow picture was a Thrift store find the other day.

My "Sunny", yellow birdhouse blended in nicely with the colors, too.

After noticing all the soup tureens you girls have, I wanted one. I found this smaller one on Ebay, but I do love it.

Girls! Don't these lemons look real? I got them the other day at Walmart. A BIG bag of them for $10. I just compared them to my real lemons, and couldn't tell them apart. I love to use lemons in decorating/tablescapes!

Thanks for joining me today. I love it when you stop by!

Blue and white goes so well with yellow! I have a blue guest room and used a blue and yellow toile in the drapes ~ it keeps the window area so bright.

This is just so fresh and pretty. Everytime I see blue and yellow together, I think of my mom. She just loved that color combo for the kitchen!

Sonia said...

I love blue white and yellow together...nothing is prettier than that combo! Such a pretty little table and everything goes together perfectly! Even on a gloomy day this would look happy and bright!

HI this is my first visit--came by way of your comment on Brenda's post--love your home--and I love all your color choices!! I am a quilter and it takes alot of my time--but after reading and seeing your home pictures I think I should change--cause then I would have to always have a neat and clean house so I could pictures to show on my site!!!! By the way--in your post on the red flannel sheets--on the foot of your bed is a red and white yo-yo quilt--may I ask where you got it???? I am in the process of making one from a photo in a magazine I seen!!!!
Hugs, Di

Love that yellow color, so cheerful... my mom has a similar little blue cow ( sort of creamer or milk for coffee ) and little chicken to separate the white from the yolk... lovely.
