Charming Cottage Style ~ A Pocketful of Blue

When I started this Charming Home Series of beautiful home tours, I knew that JoAnne at A Pocketful of Blue would be one of the features. I’ve been reading her blog ever since I started blogging myself. We share a love for the color blue … especially when it’s paired with white. Her home embraces a clean, charming cottage style that I fell in love with the minute her blog loaded in my web browser. Take a look and see for yourself!
