Feeling a little blue (and white)

I really am feeling a little blue tonight. My father died a few months ago and today I saw (and held) his ashes for the first time.

So here are some 'blue' pictures to brighten up my mood. I hope you like them too.

The first is from Vita Rummet, a gorgeous shop in Sweden. I could run wild in here!

Some gorgeous crockery, from Eva Lindh.

I don't know where this picture came from, but I want to dive into this bed!




Some cushions from ex-Aussie resident Appley Hoare



Another Eva Lindh picture. Love the squishy cushions (and the cute shoes!).

Hello Cath,

So sorry for you lost! We're both are. I didn't even saw dad's last days in the world as, he died so quickly.

Always think that our loveones, are always in our side, whether they left in this world. When I think this, it helps to ease my sorrow.

Your post today, is gorgeous. I recognize them as a filipina/swede §:-)
Jst buy a ticket to Stockholm and I can be your friendly host. If you dare to.

Scandinavian furnitures are well appreciated as I can see it.

Have a nice night & hope ur blueness will be in pinkish in the morning!

Cheers mate!

You blues are to be expected, Catherine but I'm sending happier vibes your way.

and I agree - that bed is very inviting (says me, just up from having a migraine today)

Lovely thoughts from dear Chie as always. Days like these are always challenging Catherine - be gentle with yourself.

Thank you for brightening my day with this delightful post - especially the peek into the gorgeous Vita Rummet, one of my all time favourites.
