BLUE Mondays

One of my MOST favorite of all colors is BLUE so I decided that I would like to give BLUE Monday a try. This will be my first post of many, I hope. I do have LOADs of blue in my home and I will enjoy sharing it with you!

A Great BIG Thanks to Smiling Sally who is our wonderful hostess for this Monday post! As you can see, I was not merely just saying I LOVE blue. I have painted our Formal Dining room and deep Royal blue. I love it as a backdrop for my many teacup and tea pots I collect.

These 2 are items I have painted and sold in softs blue shades.
I just love this piece of pottery. Mainly because my daughter made it as a sophomore in her art class and then gave it to me. I am using it to show off some pretty bling I have!

Thanks for letting me share! I DO love to recieve comments and hope to stop by and visit all the other BLUE posts.
Have a blessed day!
Lorena

That is a lovely shade of blue in your diningroom. It does help highlight your teacups, etc. It looks so fresh and crisp with your white! Happy Blue Monday! ~ Robyn

Dear Lorena, Loved reading about your own story and of your sweet girl. God is sooo good...always! I'm a little bit a head of you...I turned 50 in December...can't believe it!

Your hubbs sounds like mine...lets me do whatever I want! He has his own office space and also a beautiful wood workshop in the back. That is enough for him...oh...and a flat screen TV is on it's way for his office wall! :)

Loved visiting your blog...love the pics and your spirit! INSPIRING!

Bless you friend...xoRebecca

Great display of blue, but more than that, I'm loving the display of your collection of pretty teacups and the teapots. I collect them myself and it's always fun to see the patterns of china that others collect. Have a fabulous week!!
