Blue on Blue - Part 2

I am continuing my series of Blue on Blue. It started last week with my blue (aqua) bowl and pale blue table runner. This week, I have added a few pieces to the table vignette and I hope you like it.


Here is an image from Part 1 of Blue on Blue.



Now we can talk about what's new for Part 2 of Blue on Blue. I'm so excited to show you my cloche that I purchased last Fall while visiting in southern Illinois. My sister-in-law and I were shopping and stopped at a little shop in the country that was new to the area.




Sitting on a crowded shelf behind the front door of the shop was this perfect cloche with beautiful speckled blue eggs in a nest. I knew this cloche was waiting for me, or else someone would have already purchased it. Right? It has some itching on the glass so I turned it to the back so you could get the best view of the eggs.




I really wanted some birds to go with the nest and eggs and got lucky and found some white ones to add to the vignette.




I added the large bird in the middle in front of the blue bowl and added a small bird at each end of the setting.




The birds were an inexpensive find at Michael's but seem to add so much to the vignette.


I do really like the white birds with the aqua blue pieces. It looks so fresh and spring like to me. Notice the aqua and white egg sitting to the left of the large bird. It is part of a set of 6 eggs that was a gift from a couple of friends of mine last year on my birthday. It's the perfect color to go with the aqua bowl.

I'm loving this series. I adore that blue bowl that started it all. Those birds look amazing. Thanks for sharing at DIYbyDesign.

Kindred souls I'm thinking here Judy. I too love this color as well as birds and nests. Your blue bowl and cloche ar so charming. I love the entire vignette! I painted my island and fan hood a similar blue a year and a half ago and I still love it. I have been pulling out some of my bird items for Spring. Would love for you to come visit. I am visiting from S.S.Style. Now a new follower.
