Blue...Past Influences and Present Delights!

I have such an appreciation for wonderful vintage treasures but I also love new things that are made with an endearing nod to the past! I hope you enjoy today's collection of both old and new things that represent a little of both.  Have a wonderful Sunday! I will see you tomorrow for my last 31 Days of Blue post!

A late 1700's pharmacy! Most medicines were kept in beautiful jars on rows of shelves. I took this picture on a recent trip to Williamsburg, Virginia. (Merci':RuedeEmily)

Okay...I'm cheating a bit here...I know these looks aren't  all blue (although technically there is blue in the picture) but they are great representations of how our past always influences our future. The look above is from Ralph Lauren Spring 2012 and the look below is from The Row Spring Resortwear 2012. The Row is the couture line from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen!
