Blue Monday 6/29

Remember to stop in and visit Sally at
Everyone always has such interesting "blues".

OK, I like Blue Monday because it was my main color for a long time and I have a lot of it!!
I found four of these beautiful plates at GW for $2.00 each. I can see an upcoming tablescape!!!

On my stove sits my salt box. I love the checker pattern. I wish I had more pieces of that. The little hand quilted hot pad was made by a woman I knew when I had my shoppe.

Hope this teal colored chair counts as blue. I love this little chair. It was in my parents bedroom by the door and I remember my father always sitting down there to put his socks on. Funny the things that come back to you. Also you can see my little Sunbonnet Sue quilt on the quilt rack. I think my Mom gave me that but I don't remember who made it. (That didn't come back so well!!)

Last are my little braided stair treads. I know, I should've vacuumed first but I had the camera and there they were shouting "BLUE" so this is what you got. When we had the floors redone before we moved into this old house, the refinishers told us that the wood on the stairs is black walnut. Most of the down stairs is either red oak or heart pine. Nice wide plank flooring. And the man who owned the house before us had it all covered up with wall to wall carpeting!!
Have a great Monday everyone. See you here and there in blogland!
