Blue Monday 3/29/10



Well what is everyone planning on this fine BLUE MONDAY?  I'm going to mail my grandson Cody's his Easter box, finishing sewing Olivia's easter outfit, finish planning and grocery shopping for Easter dinner and still have time to blog.  I need to get started. Go go over and join Sally @Smilingsally.blogspot.com for more Blue Monday Posts.

My first picture is of some coasters I made several years ago and a couple of them are blue.  I went to Home Depot and purhased some ceramic tiles that you use for walls.  I took some favorite papers, and decopaged scenes that I liked onto the tiles.  I sprayed them with acrylic sealer.  On the back I glued pices of cork board to avoid scratched furniture.

The next picture is one of my colorful Easter placemats. I'm having around 24 people for dinner on Sunday so I think I will be using a varitey of table covers.

I picked out one of my vintage books to show today.  This one is full of wonderful stories.  The little ones on the cover are having a wonderful day at the lake with their little sailboat.

Hope you all have a wonderful BLUE MONDAY.  It's going to be in the 60's and 70's here in Kansas this week.  I am soooooooo excited.  Happy Easter.

Great post for Pink Saturday. You are so smart and creative. I learn something new about you each week. I would have a heart attack if I thought I had to fix for 24 people. Good luck.

Love those coasters. You've got my mind spinning with ideas!

Also, those Easter placemats are beautiful. Where did you get them? Are they cloth?

With that many people you'll be using more than one table. Get each one matching, rather than trying to have all of them match. You can also alternate matching items between place settings to increase your numbers.

Sounds like a busy but productive day!! Looking at your weather makes me jealous though! So very rainy and cold here. My husband and I visited KC last July for our anniversary. We had a great time.

Me? Today? I cleaned house, damp-mopped the hardwood floors and then shined them w/something -- still meaning push a stick around. Ouch! I never thought of doing the coaster thing like that -good idea. Don't you just love old books - look at the age and the great cover picture. Neat! THanks for visiting and commenting on my blog today! Happy Blue Monday! Jenn <><

Love the old book.

I agree about not painting the blue suitcase, but I might try to liven up those flowers a bit. They need some detail.
What do you think?
