What is it about blue glass that just begs to hold a bouquet of pink flowers
It is soft, faded, shabby and romantic- with just a touch of color
and it is perfect for so many places- especially in Summer.
Or holding the most delicate blooms on a side table
or even on top of the fireplace for a Spring vignette
Gosh, I just love that shade of blue with pretty pinks... sigh.
My favorite use for blue glass as you can probably already tell ;)
is to use blue jars or bottles grouped together or by themselves
for holding small bouquets of flowers
Most of the vintage bottles and jars I have were found while junking
but they don't all have to be vintage to be gorgeous.
Like those reproduction mason jars- though the blue isn't quite that pale delightful color.
But... just a couple weeks ago I bumped into a set of
gorgeous -took my breath away with their pale color
small recycled glasses at HomeGoods
I just about knocked 5 people over trying to grab them.
They are chunky and heavy and oh so perfect for setting a small candle inside
I love that their color changes with the lighting and that they have small imperfections.
Sometimes they look so perfectly sea glass green
and other times- they are leaning more blue.
They have the most gorgeous sea glass color
for using with a nautical Summer inspired table
and are even perfect for serving a scoop of ice-cream or smoothie inside
That gorgeous pale green blue color even inspired a simple table setting
in the woods
(more coming soon)
Pretty much in love with this color right now and
and the softer the color is
the better in my book.
Do you collect vintage or reproduction blue or green glass?
I have a hard time resisting the urge to bring pieces like these home with me
so yes, you will be seeing more treasures like these soon. ;)
I am playing catch up over here this week
and we are getting ready for my sister to come up for a visit and a party that is coming up.
Washing slipcovers, restyling the patio and notching off a few of those back burner type projects.
We might even try to squeeze in a little bit of a girls trip this weekend too.
Hope your week is going great!
