Blue and Brown!

Actually, for me it's Turquoise and Brown, but I'm joining Cindy's Cottage Instinct's Blue and Brown Blog Bonanza!  Here is what I've got today-
I assembled a vignette of some of my favorite items.  The vase was a lucky Goodwill find and the old beaver print was purchased on my way home from a visit in Kentucky.  The little deer has a mended ear, but I love him anyway!

A small, rusty portion of my old turquoise washing machine that sits outside, planted with Nasturtiums.

An old brown bottle with that same vintage washer in the background.

An old wooden shingle decorated with rusty nails and copper flowers wearing a lovely patina.

A little closer shot of some of my favorite things.  I found the little carved rooster for 29 cents recently!

And last, but not least, a collection of vintage vases!


  1. What a lovely collection of blue and brown things! That old washing machine--now that's REALLY special!

  2. Great vignettes and fun blog! So glad I found you through the blue n brown party. Maybe I'll post now thanks to your inspiration ~ I don't have any finished rooms that work, just touches like you)! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow! Such beautiful shades of blue with brown. I had to scroll back a few times to take it all in. I need to go to Goodwill with you! Lovely! So glad you joined the Great B&B Blog Bonanza!

  4. Thank you, everyone! I'm new to blogland, but when I saw the B%B bonanza, I just couldn't resist! Those are my colors.
