Blue Monday

These blue mixing bowls are really useful - and they're my favorite color.

I am a Boyd's collector. This little fellow is one of my favorites
with his pretty bow and his blue feet.
This lovely creation was in a box of linens that I purchased at an estate sale.
I was at Wal-Mart a few weeks ago and, although, I have several sets of glasses, I loved the blue too much to resist.
My daughter made this pillow for me. It says a lot. I hope that everyone enjoyed my Blue Monday posts. I am excited to look at the posts of the participants. I'd like to thank Sallie at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/
for hosting Blue Monday.

Hello Sweetie, your blue today is great. Love the pillow, the mixing bowls and actually all of it. smile.
Go to a Cracker Barrel and I would bet you could find a Penn State blue rocker. The truth is it doesn't match a thing on my porch and if my dh didn't love it so much, it would be history. What we do to keep our husbands happy. lol Have a great day.

Hugs...Jeanne
