BLUE MONDAY/FAVORITE THINGS










Welcome to Blue Monday, be sure to visit our wonderful host Sally over at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ where you'll meet a whole bunch of wonderful folks who are sharing their favorite blues today

this is a little grouping of some of my favorite things, the picture in the background is a birthday present from my sister way way back , almost 25 years ago, humm that makes it an antique right? LOL, the big blue speckled coffee pot & bird house are treasures I came across at an antique mall, the little books are world books from my husbands grandmother, yep there's the whole set lol, the vase was also from his grandmother, the little chair came out of an old church's Sunday school room I got all 6 from a yard sale

Helen, long time no see! I'm so glad to see you here on Blue Monday.

I love your vignette with all those treasures. I'm completely wild over that little chair. How cute it is, and I love the color and the tiny quilt on it (you didn't mention where you got that... did you make it???). And the picture from Dot is adorable... looks great with the colors you have up there. I just like the whole thing. Good job!

I just spied some mighty cute dolls on your sidebar. I believe I'll go have a look.

Happy Blue Monday to you! This is the time of year I first met you last year, and I have been enjoying Annie so much still. She's a regular fixture at our house! :-)

xo,

Sheila :-)

Sweet blue grouping, Helen. Be careful to label that picture "vintage" since that would make you ... ahem! Happy Blue Monday.
