Cherubs and Flowers and Birds - Oh My!

We've had this rocker for over 22 years now (ever since our oldest was just a baby)...

When I switched from prim to cottage several years ago, I started looking for new chair cushions that matched the lighter colors I was starting to use...


I found these reversible rocker cushions on eBay... robin's egg blue (as well as peachy-pinks), perfect for the new 'cottage' decor...


The fabric design is bursting with flowers, vines, cherubs and birds... And I love that both pieces are reversible so I can mix & match them on a whim... I just love this shade of blue!

Be sure to stop by Smiling Sally's blog to see her Blue Monday post, to find a list of other participating blogs, or to share a bit of your own favorite blue!

I love your rocker and the fabric for your cushions is so charming. Have a great week.

P.S. I wanted the rocker I used when my son was born, my mom still has it and she had it recoved in a blue fabric too.

It really is a pretty shade of blue. I also have an old rocker...23 years now. Why do they grow up so fast? sigh*
I hope you have a wonderful Blue Monday

I love the soothing tones of blue myself. Have them all over the garden room. I've always had blue in my house.
