My First Blue Monday!

I was looking at other Blue Monday bloggers and realized "Hey! I took some pictures of blue stuff this weekend!"
So without further ado meet my blue.
Who doesn't love blue and white china. I'd wear it if I could. This little treasure is currently at home in my dining room keeping the "hand painted periwinkles" company on the bachelor chest. Kudos to those who can identify where "hand painted periwinkles" came from.

What do you call a sale where there is neither a garage or a yard involved? Paid 50 cents for this one. Sorry for the cut off picture. By the time I came to this one the heat had really done me in. Is summer in Texas ever going to be over?

I love birds and I fell in love with this little guy.

Crown Staffordshire. Local thrift shop. His feathers really picked up the turquoise of the tablecloth but in real life he is blue-jay blue.


  1. LOL I'd wear blue and white dishes too if I could.

    Happy 1st Blue Monday, Lydia! Check out my book giveaway.

  8. Hi Lydia,

    Welcome to Blog-ville. Enjoyed seeing your blue and garage sale (yard sale, carport sale, or just "sale" finds --- there's nothing like the thrill of finding a great bargain on something you really love. I'll be back ... came via Cass...

  9. "I'd wear it if I could." ~ me too. Absolutely adore blue and white china. Well, OK, I adore most ceramics in many color combos. ;-)
    Nice finds! Where in TX?

  10. Hi Sarah. I'm in Mineral Wells. Home of the Baker Hotel. :-)

  11. Thanks everyone for the lovely comments. I really appreciate each and everyone. When Cass told me she was going to feature me I had a moment of stage fright LOL! I got past that and I'm having lots of fun so far.

  12. Sarah,
    I'll be your follower. I'm new at this too, only a week or so and I'm adicted already. How did I exist before in a world without blogging? I feel like my world has expanded tenfold meeting people with like interests from all over our amazing country. I'll be waiting for more of your yard sale adventures. I do it too - isn't it so much fun? I'm headed for a huge flea market tomorrow. I hope I can sleep tonight.
