Today are you feeling BLUE? Hope it's the kind you can share on Blue Monday with Sally @ Smiling Sally's.
I want to share a set of delft that I purchased years ago in Holland. We went on a European trip with our two children and joined my sister and her husand and two children who lived in Heidleburg, Germany. My brother in law rented a van and all 8 of us set out on a 22 day journey. We visited 12 countries, Holland being one of them. I purchased this cheese serving tray and utensils in one of the small towns. I use it on special occassions.
The next picture is of a couple of blue pillows I just made to set on the wicker couch in the sunroom.
The next little item is of a blue glass violin. My husband was in 6th grade when he won this at his grade school carnival. He was 11 years old and he was playing a game against his school principal, Mrs. Espenlaub. My husand wanted it for his mother. He won. His mom gave this to him a few years ago when she was 97. She passed away a year later. It matches the blue in our sunroom, sits on a little antique corner shelf.
That's all the BLUE I have for today. Have a wonderful week.
