Blue Monday 3/15/10

Blue Monday is here again!! Let's all join Sally @ Smiling Sally's for all the other fantasic posts.

It's March Madness around my house.  I am a hugh college basketball fan and our KU Jayhawks are rated #1 in the country.  Now I know any team can beat any team  on any given day but I still have hopes up for a repeat championship from two years ago.

Yesterday I snapped this pic of Cole Aldredge in the Big 12 Championship game...so exciting.

rock chalk started out in the early 1950's, the fans were saying raw raw jayhawk--the coach thought it sounded like rock chalk and it stuck.
Onto something you might enjoy more--I took this photo of a painting my sister Deb did shortly after we all went on a trip to Europe.  This is the Matterhorn and this was the view out of our hostel balcony.There are tinges of blue all along the snow and trees. Just a beautiful painting.


This vase I bought at the Goodwill Store a few weeks ago, I think I paid $1.97.  Gota love a bargain.

Every Kansas girl loves stories about OZ--my sis Deb also picked this up for me in an antique store.

Hope you enjoy your week--it Spring Break this week here so we are traveling to see my Mom and Sis for a few days.

Love your Jayhawk photos, although I am an Iowa State Cyclone - not a great year for them but hey, what can I say? I'm a loyal fan through thick and thin. The vase you bought at GW is awesome! I have just recently started thrifting, after reading about and seeing such fabulous finds on others' blogs! Fun stuff! Thanks for stopping by and good luck Kansas in the NCAA!

Happy Blue Monday
You've done so well with your thrifting..isn't fun to find something special. The painting your sister painted is lovely. She's very talented....wonder whether she's painted for you... College sports are great! I didn't know that about his nickname..Interesting.
Have a fabulous rest of the day..and week.
Hope you'll come by for another visit.

Interesting bit of info about the team...I love it when I have an inside scoop like that and can mention it casually when my husband or brothers are watching a game...they always look at my like why do you know that..lol. That Wizard of Oz book was my favorite when I was a little girl.
