Blue Monday with Blue and White in Your Home

Sally from http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ hosts Blue Monday. If you have a love of Blue be sure to swing over for a full list of participants. You're in for a treat, a full Monday of Blue. With the internet down most of the day, I got busy around here and got "most" of my work done so I could sit and do a bit of reading. I'm a bit behind with all the magazines I receive and the books I have. Have you seen the latest publication of Country Sampler? The cover alone is enough to draw you in. Once you open the cover you're in for a treat. Don't you love the blue and yellow quilt? It is so refreshing and so spring like. I've made many quilts over the years, but never a blue and yellow one. I believe this is going on the list of things to do. :-))

With the inspiration of the blue on the cover I got busy and pulled some more of my blue out. It's time to bring a bit of lightness into the living area.

Normally, I lay a book down to decorate. This time I chose to use a plate stand and elevate the book. If you haven't picked this book up, you're in for a treat. By the editors of Victoria Magazine full of delightful pictures and a great read.

I'm not sure what this beautiful blue piece is..I just remember when I saw it many years ago I fell in love with it... it is so unique. I'm curious, what would you call it? I'll be interested in hearing what you have to say.


I've had the Fenton shoe for many years. Isn't it just the sweetest little thing? :-)) The lace is exquisite. I think it's one of the best purchases I've made in a long time. :-))


What a beautiful glow the sun puts on the table. Sally thanks for hosting another great Blue Monday..now I'm off to see more beautiful blue.. see you there.. :-) hugs ~lynne~
