True Blue Baby I Love You


I'm still in love with my new kitchen. Here are some blue things I spied with my little eye recently...



Spotty bowls from Avoca. Blue plates from Ikea in plate rack.


I can't remember where I came across this sweet girl. We haven't quite found a home for her yet so she hangs out in the kitchen with us for now. 
Tea cups on the dresser with a cute knitted tea pot cosy a friend gave me.


Washing-up gloves from Homebase. Very unused looking I might add. I do like my dishwasher. The appliance one rather than the husband one.
 Scales by Typhoon.


Love this bowl's shape and colour, by Sophie Conran. Stack of bowls, baking dishes and colanders on a kitchen shelf.


No Irish kitchen is blessed without the holy Mary water on the dresser. A dear friend gave me one and not sure where I got the other. Probably my mother. I sprinkled the whole house with one of these when we first bought it. The other one helped me find a lost diamond when away with work once. Handy things to bring traveling, Holy Mary waters. Cute bottle from Avoca for homemade drinks.


Currants tin, from an auction house, reused as a utensil pot. Retro clock with cooking timer from ebay.

Oooh! So much eye candy!! But I think I love that clock the best.
And I cannot remember the last time I saw a Holy Mary water bottle!

Love the blue theme! I want a blue style country kitchen. Unfortunately my country kitchen, despite being in the country, is just rubbish! Someday...

What a pretty post, as usual! Tea cups are gorgeous! I have a load of that Sophie Conran for portmerion stuff and I love it. It has a really natural shape, the dinner plates are all wonky, they have a lovely handmade feel. I'm going to try that holy water diamond hunting trick!x

Gorgeous, just gorgeous! I love your kitchen too and would happily spend hours just loitering in there admiring all your pretty blue artefacts!

Love your photography, you're brilliant. My kitchen is largely green tones but we are contemplating a new 'old' kitchen and I think, on seeing this, (plus the fact that I have loads of blue and white crockery and antique blue bottles in the attic) that my next kitchen will have to have blue tones. We used to move house every 2 years or so, I miss that!
Lovely kitchen Sharon
