I'm in a Blue Mood!

I'm in a blue mood! But, not a sad mood!LOL! Nothing, says Summer like the soft
color of that Light Aqua/Baby Blue color! I'm taken with that color right now.
It all started with those baby blue jars. My husband bought me this metal jar caddy. After that I just kept buying jars to fill it! (like a mad women!)
The jars that started it all!!
After that, I decided that I should go shopping in my own house to see what I could gather to paint. I found the perfect color by Behr "Cool Jazz" #490A-2 @ Home Depot. Even the name is summery!!LOL!
I painted the frame (I still need to add a bluebird image).
I painted the birdcage and the small urns on the kitchen table.
I already had the bluish larger urn, so that fit right in.
The Bluish/green pitcher belong to my Mom (it's special)! and more jars.
This watering can is another makeover.
This old vintage jar I've had for years, I love the colors of the flowers and it's blue! The bluebird flower pocket is also, one of my old favs.
And this pillow I already had upstairs. So, I added it to my favorite kitchen chair!
So, that's it! I'm "Happy with my Blue Mood" I like the way it looks with cream and white.
Create something Blue this weekend!!!
Have a great and fun weekend too! Until next time!
Much Junk Love,

Want to See Where I Create????

Come on in! this is the Secret Door into my
playroom!! Enter at your own risk!!!!! hee,hee!!
Right outside the door I keep extra lace scraps and old photos in these suitcases. Suitcases work great for storage.
My playroom is a small bedroom upstairs, it's just right to keep all my "pretties" out where I can see them. I read somewhere "you create what you see"! So, I keep alot of things out where I can see them and be inspired!!
Some of my collections.
These pics are of a hutch, that has all my laces,little bits and pieces, glues and glitter.
This is my manni! Oh, she has a sister too!
Manni's sister "FiFi".
This is my desk, I like to keep trays of jewels and findings/chains in cupcake tins.
Right behind my desk a table & file cabinet hold tiered baskets with ribbons,stamps & ink pads, all at hands reach.
I have an addiction for supplies. If you have all your supplies and you feel like creating something, you just shop in your own space!
This is a garland I made with ball fringe, it hangs over my desk and window.
More supplies hang on the back of the door in a clear see-thru shoe pocket organizer. Use all your spaces!
This tin shelf is filled with see-thur jars.
Oh, my little shoe collection. I use these to make pin cushions.
And, finally everyone needs a fu-fu comfy chair to
"dream big" and read magazines, with a chandelier overhead.
Well, here's a full view. I hope you all like my little space. Thanks, for visiting my Playroom today!! I hope I inspired you?
As I close this post, I wish you all a great week!
Happy Creating and Much Junk Love
