Going Blue

I wrote about how I've been wanting to add some things to our home lately.  I've been patiently waiting for the perfect sales and combination of decor and needed accessories.  I think the term 'needed accessories' is an oximoron - but regardless.  We've added some blue!!!  Check it out:

2 blue candles from Target - $2 a pop
the glass candle plates already owned - from IKEA (.50 I think each)

$20 large blue vase/thingy from Home Goods.

2 blue patterny throw pillows from Tarjay for 5 beans each
(1000 bonus points for that reference)

a cool replacement lampshade from Target for $5.  We used to have a red less than cool shaped shade but the clean bright lines of this one with the added blue ribbon around the edge plus five dollar price tag made it irresistible. 

okay okay... this isn't blue, but it's a cool new needed accessory for the pens on my desk.  I've always loved these anthropologie mugs and finally got around to getting my own.  Yes that is a silver letter opener from Montserrat, France peeking in the back of the photo.

    You chose wisely with the blue, very calming and goes with a lot of other colors!

    I dig the letter opener, isn't it cool having stuff like that around?
