I was inspired to do this post by Betty C. who photographed seven blue objects in her kitchen and did a little show and tell.
I must admit I'm not a huge fan of blue in the kitchen, as I find it doesn't compliment the reasons why you'd go into the kitchen, i.e. to cook or eat. Have you thought how few edible blue fruits and plants there are in nature? Personally I can think of some red grapes, blueberries and not much else!
Blue being hubby's favourite colour, we have some blue items in our kitchen in London, but as I'm currently in Athens, my collection of blue objects numbers just two cups, one of which is more purple than blue.
This floral cup is my favourite. I used to have two of them, but one broke, so now I have just the one cup and two saucers. It's quite a small cup but it's the perfect size for my coffee, as I can never drink the amount in a regular sized mug without half the liquid going cold.
Luckily I had dinner with my brother and his wife the other day, and got to photograph the remaining five blue items for this post in their kitchen. Look at the kitchen table set for us: blue crockery, cutlery with blue handles and even blue paper napkins. It's a blue photographer's paradise!
On the kitchen counter, I snapped my sister-in-law's cup of coffee.
Then they turned their kettle and toaster on for me, and guess what, both of them light blue! Project complete.
In case you're wondering what we had for dinner, we ordered chef's salad, spagetti and a massive pizza from the local takeaway.
And no, we didn't manage to finish it all. At least half the pizza ended up in the freezer for another day.
