Blue Monday

 

blue_monday[3] Happy Blue Monday! Smiling Sally is hosting this party and she is a true delight. Be sure to take time to drop by her blog to visit her and the other Blue Monday partiers!

I am starting with this picture I took at Thanksgiving when my oldest daughter , Danielle, her hubby, Tom and their son and my only grandson came to visit. It was such a happy time as all my children were home. I haven’t seen them since then, except on Skype, which is the Jetson’s video phone. Who’d have ever imagined there would come a time that you can talk to and see the person on the other end of the line?!

I am glad they decided to wear blue so the picture works for today!

This pitcher with the delicate blue floral pattern cost $3! It is one of my recent thrift store finds. I actually passed on it; couldn’t get it out of my head and zoomed back across the store, wondering why I was hesitating over the $3 price tag! Sometimes you find such great deals that you get used to things being crazy-cheap; like .25 or .50. So $3 seems like highway robbery until you hit yourself upside your head and get thinking properly!

I don’t know a think about it except I know I just really like it. It seems old but I don’t know. In my dreams, it is a rare collectable worth thousands :)

Finally, I am showing one of my vintage hankies that I am using as a table mat, at the moment. I adore the patterns and colors of vintage hankies and this aqua blue shade is my favorite.004

Thanks for stopping by! I enjoy the visits so much and I am wishing you a joyful week.

There is nothing wrong with a thing you shared on Blue Monday. That baby is precious. I think you made the right choice on the pitcher.

Your daughter and grandson are so beautiful and handsome, respectively.

His blue eyes really stand out.
Gorgeous.

I'm trying to imagine what it would be like to go weeks or months without seeing one of my children. I guess I'll get used to it if it comes to that one day...

Beautiful pitcher. I agree with you on the whole idea of paying $3 for something. I've also gotten so used to getting stuff so cheap that a few dollars seems like a lot. Happy Blue Monday!
