I love to decorate with blue this time of year so I wanted to share a simple vignette I created with some of my recent finds. I found a small blue scalloped bowl and plates to match at one of our local thrift stores. I have a small bookcase type stand that I'm using temporarily, so I added a new kitchen towel with yellow and blue for a background. There are so many simple things that you can find around your home to add more interest to your pictures.
I added yellow flowers to my simple silver pitcher and yellowish green apples to my bowl. I layered the plate with a silver tray and stand that I found while thrifting. I think blue and yellow is so pretty in the springtime.
I still have a few of my wood Easter eggs left so I added them to the bowl. Who says you can't use Easter eggs after Easter? I liked them in the bowl but decided the apples gave more of a contrast. I love the delicate shades of the soft blues.
I'm still looking for something to hang on the wall in this corner of the room. I decided to add the basket that I tweaked a bit from a previous post. I love all the sunshine flowing in the room, although the curtains cut off some of the light. There is a bit of a glare also, but I love the simplicity of it all.
I thought the vignette had a vintage appeal so I added an old fashioned sepia tone to my pics.
Another pic of my basket. I painted some metal flowers yellow and purple to add to the graphic.
I think I might have had a little too much time on my hands today. I love the photo editing part of blogging and sometimes I spend too much time tweaking. I admit that along with the blue shades, I love the rustic and romantic look of the sepia tones. It can make something simple look special. Thanks for stopping by!
