Blue Monday...From the Living Room

Sally from Smiling Sally's Blog hosts this weekly event.
Hope you'll stop by her place and see all of the blue
goodies at the many participating blogs.

On my list of favorite blue things from the
living room are the two pictures.

The blue
is light but definitely there in these family
oriented pictures.

I found the vase at a year end clearance at
the Lennox Outlet.

It is the Morningside Cottage Pattern.
Finding it at 75% off was wonderful!

The last item featured in this post was
a project that did not go exactly as
planned. The large blue stand was supposed
to get a glass top and become a side table
in our master bedroom. Somehow between the
time I brought it in the house and before
it turned into a bedside table it began
holding this plant.

I love it as a plant
stand. Maybe one day I will put the glass
top on it with a pretty doily and dress it
up a bit. But for now...I just enjoy it
as it is.

The pattern is so ME!

I hope you have a wonderful day!
Here is hoping for lots of blue
sky and sunshine in your part of the world!

Good morning Becky, Your prints are so sweet and the Lennox vase is a great bargain and beautiful. I have the cream and gold lennox pieces and admire them so much. Your planter in cobalt blue is so pretty. Great blue today.

That cobalt blue plant stand is wonderful! All your blue things are very nice. Lennox for 75% off is positively heavenly...I mean that! That's what I call a God breeze if ever there was one.

Hi Becky
What a wonderful blue monday post.
Thank you for sharing your delightful photos.
I think you have the best of both worlds with your planter there is so much you can do with the colors and pattern. I love both .
It is always so nice to get something you change around if you want to.
What a bargain on the lenox .Good job of shopping :)
Have a great week.
