Blue Monday

Good morning and Happy Blue Monday everyone!

Thank you to Sally at for hosting this event.

Today I would like to share with you these blues:

~ a set of three blue boxes; toile of course.

~ a vase with a blue hydrangea on it.

~ a little boy saying his bedtime prayers with his faithful friend by his side. This little cutie is made by Holly Hobbie.

Yesterday, Sally presented all her 'fans' with this award. As the month of April has been named "Tell 'Em You're A Fan Month," this award is free for the taking if you're a fan of my blog. I am dispensing with all the rules; all you have to do is leave a comment to let me know you are a fan of mine! So, let your favourite blog sites know you're fan, just as Sally did with me. Please accept this unique award from me to you.

Now, please go and visit Sally for more 'blues' today. Thank you for stopping by!
