I'll Have Mine With a Side of Blue and White

No better reason to return to regularly scheduled blogging than with a bang.  I mean, a bash.  The lovely and talented Jennifer of The Pink Pagoda is hosting another blue and white bash today and I’m crashing the party, albeit late.  Seems fitting as blue and white seems to be a staple in my design diet.  Seriously slam the blue and white shizzy sauce on errythang.  Case in point…

Blue and white makes a great vessel for flowers.  Duh.

here we have a side of blue and white aka blue dub anchoring a vignette

scattered, smothered, and covered with blue dub

a towering blue dub confection

that blue dubs is a logo ho as she requires liberal slathering on all serving pieces

holidays bring out the best in blue dub

she pairs nicely with a full bodied chinoisy dish

she can be a bit of a camera hog though

eager to prove she's no diva, she is willing to give brass her rightful place as the one true saucy dish

not content with just lamps and plates, she must flaunt all her glory on candles too

admittingly the underdog come turkey time, blue dubs was thankful to be served up with dessert

she's a right tasty amuse bouche in the sack, as blue dubs insists that I print my textiles in blue

just like msg, blue dubs is a tricksy ingredient that can sneak in, even in the tiniest doses

And now I am out of food references.  You get the point.  I use it everywhere even though I gave it up like carbs for a few years in a fit of granny rage, meaning I felt it was too dated and overused.  But here I am again, claiming to enjoy it in moderation, but in reality am full force on the blue dub sauce once again.

Click on over to the bash to see how everyone else serves up their blue and white sauce.
