Blue Monday
Smilin' Sally's
Go on over to 's
and meet all the other participants.
Thanks for hosting Sally!!

How about a blue vintage apron??
(soon to be at my blog shop
along with some other vintage aprons).

Or this old Watkins cook book.
It is in perfect shape!!

Forgot to write down date. oops!

And does bluish green count??
I love this color and just happened
to find 3 or 4 pieces with it.
Love this little tray at the shop.
(I mean our real shop here in town.)
( Someone asked about the 'thing' in the white square dish.
Any guesses???
Of course! It is a bird nest, or part of one my brother gave me.)
Good guesses. =0)

OK, how do i differentiate between them
here in blog land.
Is one a 'real' store?
Does that make the other one a
'pretend' store?

OK from now on the 'store'
is our building here in Eugene,
and my online shop will be my blog shop.
Thanks Allison. Great idea!!

Hope you enjoyed my blue today.

Blessings and have a happy blue Monday.

Barbara Jean

Several of the items listed here will
be in my blog shop soon.
Email me if interested. =0)

What wonderful blue you have shared. I love the apron!! I wonder if the cook book is the same Watkins that made vanilla?

I guess that apron wins the prize for the most admirers thus far! have a great day Barb!

Knitty said...

Sure it counts!

Aprons (new)seem to be coming back into fashion. I wonder if any of the current ones will hold up in style and construction to the ones we view as vintage today.

Mary said...

I loved all the blues you had to show us today. The apron, of course, is a stunner but I love the shade of blue that covers your cookbook. Have a great day.

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

I vote for including blueish green! Love the cookbook - I always find the terms and measurements in the old ones so interesting.

Sandi@ My Yellow Door said...

I think bluish-green counts! It's a great colour. Happy Blue Monday!

Of course bluish-green counts; all blues count. Thank you for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

Love the apron! The blueberry doesn't ever get as much glory as the strawberry and the cherry. :-)

I'm a sucker for vintage aprons(kind of funny cause I don't cook that much!). Hope your week is wonder filled. Sue

The apron is awesome, it is nice to see one well cared for. I have one of my great grandmothers, kind of a hostess type for when entertaining in the home, and I love it!
