Blue Monday




For some reason it was difficult for me to find "new blue" for this week's Blue Monday post. Before selecting my posts, I learned a little more about my favorite color.
Blue is the overwhelming "favorite color." Blue is seen as trustworthy, dependable, and committed.The color of ocean and sky, blue is perceived as a constant in our lives. As the collective color of the spirit, it invokes rest and can cause the body to produce chemicals that are calming. However, not all blues are serene and sedate. Electric or brilliant blues become dynamic and dramatic -- an engaging color that expresses exhilaration. Some shades or the overuse of blue may come across as cold or uncaring.Indigo, a deeper blue, symbolizes a mystical borderland of wisdom, self-mastery, and spiritual realization. While blue is the color of communication with others, indigo turns the blue inward to increase personal thought, profound insights, and instant understandings.Blue is the least "gender specific" color, having equal appeal to both men and women. I hope that you will like the blues that I have selected this week.


I love this set of four blue wine glasses. They match several sets of my favorite China.


This is a vase that my daughter bought for me in a thrift shop.


This is one of my many button jars. It's a blue jar. I thought that it would be fun to go through the buttons in the jar and pull out the blue buttons.
