Blue & White
This morning I pulled out some blue and white from all over the house. It is surprising the things that I take for granted until the urge to rearrange hits. These little rose needlepoint chandelier shades on the fireplace lights used to be on my kitchen chandelier at our old house. During the move three years ago one was lost, leaving me with only five instead of the six needed for our chandelier so I had two on a couple of candles in the dining room and three in the basement. After deciding to put them on the fixtures in the great room I headed to the basement to retrieve the shades and only found three and, of course, forgot where the other two were. After a search of the house I found them on the shelf in the dining room on two candles, so I put away one candle, snagged the shade, and there you go, four shades for these lights.
The urns and vases on the fireplace came from the dining room and above the cupboards in the kitchen. With some rearranging, you can't even tell they are missing from their previous positions.
Over the weekend the fourth of July plant was in its red wrapper from the florist. It seemed to stick out like a sore thumb in here so I transplanted it into this brass cachepot that I also had in the basement and it blends in much better now.
