Blue and Yellow for the New Year



My eyes, tired of red and green, find blue and yellow quite refreshing, so as soon as the tree is gone, I pull out the blue and yellow bits . . . quilts and pillow covers and trinkets.


That winter jasmine is like little suns in the window . . .


And the twinkling white lights will stay up through January -- on these dark days, we need the cheeriness they bring.


A fresh look for a fresh new year.

Just like the folks at the museums, you're rotating your collection! ^-^

That's exactly it, Deana! It helps me see things with a fresh eye.

How elegant, to re-design your environment by colors of quilts and pottery! It really looks good!

It's a good idea, though I don't do it. I don't really have enough stuff on display to rotate things. Blue and yellow is a great combination.

I love the blues and yellows. Like you we have accumulated so many things we love that we have to rotate them. And that makes us appreciate them all the more.

You have a very cosy looking room and I think the blues and yellows are very appropriate harbingers of Spring.
