Blue Monday~Bedroom Pretties

It's Blue Monday time!
Hosted by Smiling Sally

Also, check out other participants blogs too!
Today I'm showing a few fav's up close
from my blue bedroom .
The blue boy and goose was a gift from my mom that she painted and glazed herself! She's so talented!
I fell in love with this blue pitcher I bought, with the raised floral motif.
The angel candle holder isn't blue but just happened to be next to the other decor on my dresser top, I bought it at Ross Store.
It's no Hobby Lobby but has great buys!
The little jewelry box was a gift from my sister "Linda Lou"
(that's not really her middle name but that's what I like to call her)!

These are "Spode" plates, and part of my collection of blue and white plates.
I need cute plate holder for these!
I think I had better go shopping!
Don't you think?


This is a signed and numbered lithograph called
"French Tea Garden"
This photo just doesn't do it justice, it's much prettier in person!

Hi Sherri,
Thank you for sending me the link for the clock information! I love the boy with the goose; does your mother paint and glaze ceramics? That is something I would like to learn. The music box is so dainty and pretty and especially sweet since it is from your sister. Concerning the Spode, it is one of my all time favorite brands. They have such fine workmanship. I just discovered the cutest blog it is called Cozy Little House. I put the link on my right sidebar under blog friends. I think you might enjoy it too. Have a nice Monday. ~Cathy

What a sweet figurine your mom made.
I am hosting 13 giveaways this week. I hope you'll stop by.

Your Mom is surely talented. That figurine is beautiful.

Have a happy Monday!

All you need do is glance at a corner of the dresser and you're in Blue Heaven! I like the plates on the wall, and that picture tells a story. Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

I love your blue choices for today's post. French Tea Garden looks so serene. Do we ever look that serene today?

Good morning Sherri, Your blues are so sweet. The figurine your mom painted and glazed is very nice. She had talent for sure. I think you do need a plate holder. it would look great with your pretty blue plates. I would like to see the picture in person. it is very pretty even in the photo.

Hugs...Jeanne

Sherri,
Your lithograph is beautiful...I love the whole composition of the picture!!! You have some wonderful blue pieces...I am especially fond of the blue pitcher. I love the raised detailing!!!

The only blue I have in my house is in my grandbaby room...it was my youngest son's nursery...now just waiting for grandbabies. I have been fluffing it up a little and then I will do a Blue Monday post.

Your blog is so lovely...if I haven't told you before...I love all the colors!!! I hope you are having a wonderful Blue Monday!!!

XOXO

Hello Sherri!

Thank you sooo much for stopping by and for your sweet comment! You have made my day! Isn't blogging so much fun?! I love your blue Spode plates! Very pretty! I also noticed you are thinking about painting your hutch and so am I! A bit scary but I really want to do it. I would paint mine white. Again, thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon!

Hugs,
Maryjane
