A Box of Cobalt Blue

I love vintage tablecloths and cobalt blue glass vases.


My Grandma always called these colorful print tablecloths, lunch cloths. I have quite a few lunch cloths that I picked up for the beautiful designs but I don't use them much. I hate ironing. When lunch cloths were in style, women definitely did a lot of ironing.


This lunch cloth is a beauty, poppies, daisies and bachelor button or cornflowers. Not sure what the yellow flowers are.



I had a little wooden shadow box with a bead board bottom that I just re-painted a creamy white and added handles to the sides. I distressed it a bit. I think it will make a great vignette box.

Here my white box full of cobalt blue vases.














These vases aren't especially expensive or rare but displayed all together, the cobalt blue color is quite beautiful! I hope you enjoyed my little vase collection!

    That color really pops! I love them all grouped together like that.

    I used to collect my mom's old Noxema glass jars because I loved that cobalt blue so much.

    Sure wish I would have kept them now!

    Have a wonderful weekend. Great post!
