Christmas Blues

What's It Wednesday #147
This is the time of the year for happiness and joy, it is after all the birth of our Savior. So even though I’m sharing some blues (and whites) I am thrilled that the holidays are here!

It started off fabulously when I found this vintage ceramic tree at my local Salvation Army for $5.00! I was so happy since I’ve watched one for years.

So the blue and white color started my theme. I was able to use the pretty blue ornaments I got a year ago on sale.

I have tons of blue and white dishes so I just popped in a little bit of cheery holly and it says Christmas to me.

All the birdcage needed was a dusting of snow and it's ready too. Do you have the Christmas blues at your home?
Happy Holidays!

Thanks to all of you who partied with us last week. Please link-up and join us again. Remember, it's not a party without you!

Oh how I do love blue and white. It all looks so nice and fresh Patti. Merry Christmas to you and your family from all of us here in Australia x

Your blues look beautiful especially the ornaments you found last year! I took ceramic classes in the 70's and made some of those Christmas trees with the lights! I made a frosty white one with blue ornaments for my mother in-law and she still has it. She's always decorated with blue! Thank you for hosting this party!

I definitely have Christmas Blues this year. With Silver though after seeing your post I should have gone after the whites :).
Wishing you a Merry and Blessed Christmas,


Beautiful blues, I love the little tree with lights, it reminded me I had one in white and I don't know whatever happened to it!
Great features and inspiration.
Thank you for the party and Merry Christmas.

Gina @ VictorianWannaBe said...

Oh wow Patti, your Christmas blues photos are beautiful! I love the way you display them in the bird cages. And that cookie jar, I have only ever seen the little spice jars like that-so cute!
I recently bought some blue dishes so I would have some blue on my Independence day table, but that is all the blue I have.
Have a wonderful week!

Candy S said...

I remember making those ceramic trees back in the seventies. A group of a dozen or so ladies would all meet at Margie's Ceramic shop at 7:00 PM on Friday night. Margie would have the TV tuned to Dallas and we would all be either cleaning our greenware or painting our bisque to be fired over the weekend. There was a lot of laughing and camaraderie going on during those lessons, it is a wonder we ever got our projects done. Thank you for hosting ladies! I do have a winter blue tablescape to share. Have a lovely day..... Candy

Oh thank you Patti, for choosing me to be included here in your beautiful godd company of these wonderfully inspiring bloggers. I to have a bit of the blues over at my place. I have added a canvas grain sack fabric pillow and raised French blue ink colored velvet to it.
I am wrapping packages and gifting's in blue, and grey and natural paper sack gift wrap papers adding a touch more blue to my French blue Noël.

It's been another beautiful year sharing with you all that inspires. I am so looking forward to many more.
I am off to complete some early appointments and then a bit more shopping and I will be completely done, and then I can take time to relax, bake, and enjoy the beauty of all my blog holiday posting friends.

And a joyeux Noël to you and yours.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

LOVELY PATTI! Good morning sister in JESUS!

I have never, never seen one of these lit up trees! And the color purple/blue is stunning! You scored on this! And your beautiful home, so lovingly prepared for the celebration of the king's coming, the moment when "...the soul felt its worth."

Thank you precious lady, for coming to visit. You reminded me that I needed to put my name at the end of the final quote, for I wrote it. To think that he came in the rags of human flesh so that we need not go any longer in this temporary state of being...but to live in robes of light. Chilling, thrilling idea and reality!

Peace to you dear one. Anita

Brandi said...

Blue and white is my favorite color combination. All of your finds are beautiful and unique. You displayed everything so nicely!
