Blue on Blue - Part 1

I wanted to share a new blue bowl and an idea I am thinking about. I need your thoughts about this idea.

As soon as I spied this blue (aqua) bowl, I loved it and knew I wanted to take it home with me. This color is really my favorite color of all. It is so peaceful and soothing to look at.

The table runner is really a pale blue color too. Some of my photos don't really do the color justice.

Now you can see the true color of the runner here and the beads at the end.

The tidbit bowls are a little different shade of color but I really like them with the bowl. The eggs were a gift from a friend and are shades of blue and green.

I purchased these tidbit bowls a few years ago from Southern Living at Home.

Here's my idea that I want your thoughts on. I am thinking about using this bowl as my base piece and adding new pieces to it each week for a few weeks (building my vignette around this blue bowl). So what do you think? Please share your thought with me.

Thanks for stopping by - Judy. Don't forget to leave me a message on what you think about my ideas. 

P.S. - You won't hurt my feeling if you think it isn't a good ideas.
