{fashion meets decor: blue & white}


You all know by now my love for all things blue & white; the past couple of years I've been trying to start my own little blue & white ginger jar collection and I've got 5 pieces so far! I'm hoping for a couple of larger sized jars so that I can create a collection display on my dining room table similar to these I posted about a while back.

While surfing Pinterest the other night I came across this fab dress:

 
The pattern reminds me soo much of my favorite ginger jar which currently sits pretty on my living room shelf:
 
 
And it got me thinking how much I love blue & white in home decor and in fashion!

So pretty! Anything you collect? I'd love to hear!
 
Have a wonderful Thursday :)

Oh...blue and white brings Greek islands to mind...!

And the dress pattern is gorgeous. So many things in art and design can be transferred on clothes. The options are endless!

I LOVE blue and white too....I love my china from my grandma's but would love a ginger jar or two! You have to check out The Pink Pagoda blog - she is all about blue and white. She even designed some fabric on Spoonflower and had it made into drapes!

Absolutely gorgeous. I have a trio of ginger jars on my dining table and I love them.... I keep one filled with flowers always. I don't think I'll ever tire of the combo.
As far as collecting goes..... books
