Blue Monday


Blue Monday is here again and I want to thank our delightful hostess Sally for hosting this fun event. Sally is in the midst of packing these days and we want to wish her all the best as she and her hubby make this transition to their new location.
For years, I had a blue living room, and because we had three boys, there was always the colour blue around. Today, I have a home full of pink and yet, to my surprise, I still have a lot of blue around.
Three rooms are still painted blue; the guest room, the den, and the office. And of course where there is a room painted blue, chances are you will find more blue.

Today, I will show you the blues in our family room. I apologize for the poor picture/colour quality. The sofa and love seat look more gray blue but in reality, they are a very nice shade of blue.
Blue in the burgundy cushions.
I love this border! I know borders are not so much in vogue these days, but I love the coziness of it and the colours in it. It just pulls everything all together.
This is a painting from one of our parishioners. It is not possible to see all the beautiful detail in this painting but take it from me; it is beautiful! She was quite the artist in her day!
Finally, is this sweet little boy, all dressed in blue, and asking for God's blessing upon his food. Again, the quality of the picture is not very good; but you get the idea. This is a Bessie Pease Gutmann collectible, called "Thank You God." The detail is really sweet!
Those are my blues for today, folks. Please check out Smiling Sally's Blue Monday and other participants by clicking on the link http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ or the Blue Monday button on my sidebar. Have a great Blue Monday/Memorial Day and a wonderful week everyone!

Sandi, you do have a lot of blue left! That little boy praying is SO sweet, and I've always liked borders. Yours has such a pretty scene on it. Enjoyed seeing all of your blueness!

Happy Memorial Day/Blue Monday...

Hi Sandi
Is it cold where you are? It sure doesn't feel like summer here in Ontairo.
I love borders and that little boy blue.
Happy Blue Monday
Love Claudie

Hi Sandi, your blues are all sweet today. So often the camera messes up the true colors. I can see it is all blue. I love the Gutmann figurine. He is a cutie saying his blessing. the gift of the painting is a treasure. I do like the border. Iam still a border person and have one in my country kitchen.

Hugs...Jeanne
