BLUE MONDAY


It's Blue Monday today and it's time to think Blue!



These pictures I took at our Vacation Home on the Colorado River in Parker, Arizona. I have the place decorated in Red, White and Blue and these are two shelfs I have in the dinning area
I love Blue Graniteware
I painted both shelfs and also made and painted the game board from a old piece of wood. I also love the two cobalt blue old glass bottles I bought at a Antique Store
These are some vintage blue dishes I have displayed on the wall too














I love this vintage blue plate
This is a blue Mosaic picture frame I made from blue china pieces

Very nice wall groupings. I have the same Cape Cod souvenir plate. I showed it in my Travel Souvernir post, part 2.

Hi Anne,

Cool picture frame you crafted there. I'm almost afraid to ask where the pieces came from. I hope they weren't the result of a disaster!

You've got some pretty cool blue plates there. I am also fond of Graniteware. I love to use it when I camp. I bet it was hard to smash that china to create that cute picture frame. Hope you have a fun Blue Monday! ~ Robyn
