A few of my favorite BLUE things

Is it August already? Wow. I do this every month, have for the past five years but really, we're already a full week into the month? The family reunion I've been hard at work on is only a day away (more of that to come this Saturday), I'm still reeling from the trip to northern California, and heading out for a cross-country road trip in only a week!

Finally there are so many photos of favorite road trip buys that I've decided to break them into color categories and spread the love out for a couple of days.

I thought I might just let the pictures speak for themselves but I can't help but rave about how in love I am with these nesting serving platters made in France by Carvelle. They're called Sizzling Servers and have the cutest little picture of the Eiffel Tower in the logo on the bottom of the plate making these my favorite newest find. Unfortunately I didn't have the insight to photograph the bottom but I will.

It seems so obvious now that these are a pair of egg cups, the cutest pair of egg cups I must add. But it wasn't so obvious to me in Solvang when I knew I was buying them but was clueless as to what it was I had decided to buy. I promptly figured that out with the help of the sweet older lady I got to chatting up.

These here salt & pepper shakers come courtesy of Sandy and are believed to be Fiesta however if they are I can't find evidence of this design anywhere online. Do you know?

Just a cute large Made in Japan Mikasa platter.

Suddenly I have three egg baskets! Where this obsession came from I have no idea but I definitely look out for them these days. And this one... it's a little bit of adorable don't you think?

Part of a Lazy Susan that will make great hors d'oeuvres plates. Still though I can't help but be a little sad I was unable to dredge up all three.

I don't think you can tell from this picture but these four bowls managed to make it all the way to the Goodwill without a ding which is an amazing feat considering I'm terrified to even pull them apart without breaking them. And yeah, managing to chip one in moving has opened my eyes to the need of bubble wrap. Not sure who made these but they definitely have that 50's flare I love!

What do you think thus far? And... thanks for looking!
