blue


i have never understood the phrase "feeling blue"... when i see blue it perks me up and makes me smile... these lovely vintage napkins from europe are instant happiness...
we all need to smile more... and say hello to a stranger in an elevator, or in line for coffee, or whenever...

I like how you call them "instant happiness" and you are absolutely right! Charming napkins.

Blue is my favorite color. It puts a smile on my face as well.

Just found your blog through Hollister Hovey. Love your pictures and looking forward to stopping by your shop someday.

P.S. There is a square faux bamboo chippendale coffee table at the Bellevue Goodwill. $24, just needs to be painted. I've been dying to tell someone who might care. My husband would kill me if I brought one more thing home.

is that too much info for my first comment? ;)

Nikki said...

Me again. Would you really want it? It has a glass top, and is framed out with the faux bamboo, I can't find a picture that is close, as it's sturdier than the ones I'm seeing. Feel free to shoot me an email at dz.nikki@gmail.com and I'll swing by and pick it up tomorrow if you'd like.

These are just delightful Pam! And yes, it's high time I started speaking to strangers again! MOTH banned me a while ago, reckons I embarrassed him, so time to make him squirm again.
