Blue Monday~May 24th~Give Away!

Don’t you just love blue? All my life I have adored blue; baby, sky, delft, navy, marine, and lately a “shabbed up” aqua or turquoise. These tin birdies are may latest shabby blue addition. They stand tall together in their home atop the piano. I think they’d be happier if someone actually sat down to the piano to play!

They sure are a sweet couple!031 032 030 033 My youngest daughter and I sampled this cake at a smart little gift store and decided we had to bring home the mix to treat the rest of the family. Luckily, all 5 kids love coconut. Over the years I have met a number of kids and adults that don’t like coconut at all! Hard for us to imagine!

An Estate sale in my neighborhood is where I found this soft, sky blue Damask table cloth and napkin set. It is vintage, I don’t know how old, but it was in a box that looked like it was a style in the 60’s. It was never used and I thought $4 was a steal. I love finding bargains!025 024

Hi Cindy...Sorry it's been awhile since I visited...time flies and all that. You sure found some great blues with the shabby birds and the 60's linenes.

I've just returned from working an Estate Sale where there were lots of linens. I couldn't resist a 50's printed table cloth.

I'd love to be entered in your giveaway. Thanks! Sue
