Summer Blues and Whites

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Languid hot summer days 
require cooling blues and whites. 

Fresh white mums, 
blue and white stoneware, 
botanical blue printed jug, 
white ruffle-edged footed cake plate, 
blue etched stemmed glasses 
cool down the kitchen 
in the midst of July heat. 

My kitchen has blue as one of its basic colors, 
but the new botanical jug and etched glasses 
bring new summer blues. 

As much as I like white and 
have added more white all around the house, 
I keep being drawn back to blue, 
my first love. 

These new blue etched stemmed glasses 
will be perfect for summer entertaining 
and for holiday seasons to come. 

Lightweight with graceful curved lines, 
they are easy to hold and 
are large enough for generous servings. 

Summer blues and whites 
fit in all around the kitchen from every angle. 

There are only four sitting out 
to cool down the July heat, 
but I have twelve, 
plenty for company.  

Come on over. 
A nice big glass of iced tea will help us 
beat the summer blues.
