Blues

Blue is my favourite colour yet I don't have an awful lot of it around my home, I'm not really sure how that happened but I noticed it a couple of days ago while snapping some pictures.  So I did a little rooting around and have picked out a couple of blue bits to display more prominently! 


A blue Colclough Trio picked up for £1.50 at a local charity shop a few weeks ago.


A rather wonky, aged ladder of the MIL's left over from decorating the bathroom and living room.  I  was cooing over the gorgeous blue paint splatters while decorating and MIL looked on shaking her head - much like my own Mum she doesn't understand my love of all things worn!


A blue frame picked up for 60p from a charity shop long ago with a postcard by my favourite equestrian artist inside.  

I wonder if I can convince MIL to part with the ladder by picking her up a new one? 

Take care,
Jem xXx
