Yellow and Blue Toile

Having missed the Toile Party so many bloggers attended, I decided to post some photos of the yellow and blue toile I have around my house.

This isn't rocket science or world peace, but I realized I have a problem that I hadn't noticed before I took this photo with my trusty Kodak EasyShare.
Photo Above:
Large awning striped pillow- originally for outdoor furniture- too dark
White battenburg lace shams from WalMart-OK
Yellow and blue toile throw pillows from Hancock's-OK
Blue and white plate on side table-too dark
White milk glass lamp grouping on side table- seems small and out of scale-I am going to blame the camera.
Oh well, rearranging this room was not on my to do list this week. Do you know what I mean? I mean how does this all get started?
This guest room came together originally because I already had the Ralph Lauren comforter and a remnant of the same fabric for a side table.

I found the soft yellow ginger jar on one of my jaunts, and the grouping below was born.
I also liked the way the soft yellow looks against my favorite Sherwin Williams Banana Cream (previous post) .

I used the fabric below as a background for a post on an estate sale find.
Even though its a little busy, I like the way the silver looks on top of it.

However ,it is just right all by itself.
Good grief, that didn't sound like baby talk did it?

And finally a lamp I found at a garage sale one Saturday morning. I actually got a pair.

For those who understand, I am a house person.
There is a little blip of peace or satisfaction when I turn a corner in my house and see some of these things.
That could impact world peace, right?

Hello and thanks for inviting me over to visit your blog. I am quite new to this world as well. I love your blue and white as well as all your lovely transferware and toile. Oh and I for one do not think your plate or your striped pillow are too dark. You always need some contrast for interest! I joined your followers list so I can stop by often.
