This buffet was a recent addition to 822 when Granky asked us to come get it from his house.  It matches the china cabinet that is just to the left and has a definite Asian influence.

I am LOVING blue again!  The entry walls are painted Field Stone, the first tier is a light blue and the ceiling is one shade darker.  I have skulked around my house, garage and basement to dig out all the blue and white porcelain I have had and kept.  So glad I kept it!  This fabric is in honor of Lola and Mr. Cutie Pie...the peacocks that used to live with us.

The blue peacock fabric covers the piano bench and this fuzzy cheetah is now a pillow

This Louis chair has a fun parakeet print on it in greens and yellows.  I am having a hard time deciding what color I want it to be, but I really like these fabrics together with all the soft beige and pinks

and any room can NEVER be without some sort of blue zebras exist?

Thank goodness they do!  And my number ???  favorite thing...feather pillow inserts.  I like them almost as much as glass cloches.

I bought this chair at Tex Kopke's flea market for $5.  It needs a white wash for sure.

I am beginning to think I have too many chairs.  WHAT???  This cane seat  chair might become my cello chair.  The one with the arms really might not work and I don't know if I can give up that cute parakeet fabric!

Gosh I love pillows.  I hand stitch them all because that's the only way I know how to sew.  No machine at my house...just a needle and thread.  But if and when I do want them to be perfect, I have just the right lady who does have a machine!  The burlap is left over from this year's Christmas tree skirt and the one with the writing is a tea towel that I folded over and stitched together.

Blue Chinese fisherman came from an estate sale.  I love him!

I found this little Hobby Lobby planter in my garage and put a sweet little palm in it and set it on the mantle.  So "springy"!

Am I really doing pink and blue?  Weird but I like it!

While I was busy with all my blue stuff and making pillows and cooking cornbread....
other talents were alive putting in the new window

and getting the yard ready for the sprinkler system and hopefully soon (!!!!) some sod!

Man oh man oh man oh man...this is my kind of day!

I love the blue fabric that is going on your bench. Great choices.

I love that fabric so much! I just helped my sister with window treatments, and we used the same fabric in green!

Although I don't think blue zebras exist, I do love that fabric!

I love your blog and the fabrics used.
Like you I also love to hand sew cushions. I love luxury fabric and sewing silk and linens is such a treat. Down cushions are a must too!

As your new follower I look forward to your visit and comments
