A Few Bits of Blue

Well, it has certainly been a long time between drinks for my blog here. I've been a bit swamped helping out with my church's presentation of the musical Godspell. I will share a post on this as soon as I get some decent photos of the artwork that I produced for it. My camera has bitten the dust :(

For today I just have a few white and blue goodies to show you that I have managed to amass over the last few months via markets, thrift stores, Tender Centre and also from a couple of fellow bloggers.

And sorry this post is such a shambles. I had heard people were having trouble with blogger but this is ridiculous!

Hello stranger! It was so lovely to see your post pop up on my dashboard. I'm sorry I haven't been by for a while but like you, my life has been busy! The kids have been on holidays for a week and we still have 2 weeks to go so I am making the most of our time.

I love all of your blue and white goodies. What a fabulous collection.

I have had so many issues with blogger lately I have seriously thought about giving up with them completely. I've noticed that lots of bloggers have moved over to other hosts and offering lots of advice on how to do it. I will be reading their advice earnestly!

Well, I'm so happy to see you are well and keeping busy. Good luck with Godspell too!

Best wishes and happy weekend,

I don't have any blue and white items but I am so drawn to these pictures. Perhaps its time so start a collection! Looking forward to seeing more of your posts!

Hi Ange,

I love all your images, but I particularly love the dish you keep your tv remotes in... this is brilliant... you have just solved a massive decorating dilemma for me (my husband leaves the stupid remotes scattered all over the coffee table and it drives me nuts!)

Love Ang x

Hello Ange,

I finally have a little time before the Moving Company comes to get our stuff here.
I'm moving to NZ in 2 weeks and guess what? I'll be so close to Tauranga! I hope we can meet when you come for a visit!
I believe I'll have more time when I get there...
Beuatiful work you've been doing!
I'll be back soon,
Love, Li :-)

Blue and white is such a classic combination. I love that it never goes out of style, and that it can be mixed and matched at will. Some lovely examples here - especially love the duck and the cushions.

Creamy White said...

Oh Ange, what a pleasure to hear from you!!!
yes, we are in Katikati and I already fell in love with Tauranga! Still having trouble to pronounce it right though, but I'll get there!!!!
It will be lovely to meet you. I feel so blessed to be here and the Kiwis are awesome!
Please, let me know when you come :-)
Everybody here are very happy with the move!
xoxo, Li :-)

I love anything white and blue. My mom made me these pillow cases similar to yours that are white and blue and I just love them. The white and blue duck is really pretty. I love all the poverty you have in your home.
