Blue Monday

Good Morning Friends~ Blue Monday is here again and I want to thank my friend Sally for hosting this fun event again this week. Please click on the link or go to the Blue Monday button on my side bar to visit other blues sites.
I would like to share with you some blues from my guest room today. The room is painted in a soft blue and I have a few blue items in the room to dress it up a bit.

This little blue framed print hangs on the wall over the white dresser. On the dresser, you will find a couple of Delft Blue pieces.
A Delft Blue jar.
~ and a windmill.
On the opposite side of the room is a blue rocker. This little girl sits quietly holding her teddy bear and waiting for company. You can't tell from the photo but she is wearing a soft blue dress and matching blue booties on her feet. She has blue eyes and her braids are tied with blue ribbon. She was the first doll Hubby ever gave me.

Well folks, that's it for today. Can't show it all today because I'll run out of blues! Enjoy your day and be sure to visit the other blue sites to see what they are offering.


  1. Happy Blue Monday! My mom would love that picture of the flowers and the little doll too! Thanks for sharing and I hope you enjoy your day!

  2. Your doll is so sweet.
    thank you for sharing her and your other treasures with us.
