Vintage: Blue and White.


1950s Royal Typewriter


Vintage Rotary Phone



An Insanely Cute Dress



Retro Superior Fan

I found inspiration for this post from this article on the revival of blue and white pottery in the UK. I love the combination of shades of blue and white together, especially on these vintage items. Maybe it is the connection to nautical-type colours that makes me admire them so.

i like blue and white too...i'm always drawn to those blue/white plates...i seem to always see them in antique shops - but now they are making a rejuvenized appearance in stores, which is fine!

i'm really into blue and white too. i keep imagining my future kitchen in a cool vintagey blue with creamy white accents all over. i just can't decide which color kitchen aid i should go for.

Deciding on what color kitchen aid is an important choice!! I can't wait to have a kitchen big enough to warrant one.

This isn't helping my "I need a typewriter otherwise I'm going to die" phase :P
