Don't be Blue, Cute Things for You.

No, We are not really closed.
This is just part of my Blue Monday Post.

Blue Monday

My sweet fella in his Blue jeans.
(wonder what he is contemplating??)

Me in my Blue Apple apron, making pies.

OOOH. And a cute little blue bear.
(well his sweater is blue anyway.)

Here is a quick and simple decorating idea.
For Christmas you can put in gold balls
and those little $ store beads.
And you have probably seen it other times on here with:
bird nests, pumpkins, doilies, and poinsettias in it.
A Birdcage is a must have for decorating in my book.

And here is a little tag I made.
Will be working on these for the store soon.
Right now, Snowmen to paint!!

I'm particiapting in all these posts today.

Blessings on your Monday.

Beautiful post Barbara Jean.
Just beautiful. I love the bird cage and what you did with it. It is so pretty.

Love the blue apron too. I love aprons and blue is one of my favorite colors. So cute. Love the pic too.

Making pies? What did you make? Sure smelled good to me.

Have a beautiful day.

Country hugs...Sherry

Enjoyed seeing all your different blues for today. I am sure you wearing that pretty blue apron made the pies better. Nice job.

SmilingSally said...

You bake pies, create, decorate, and look so cute in your apron. WOW! I'm impressed! Happy Blue Monday.

Cute tag - Where do you find the neat buttons to embellish with?!?

Hi, Barbara Jean, you are a very talented lady with all you do. And I agree about the bird cage, it's a must have. But you would expect a magpie to say that, now wouldn't you??? ;-)

Happy Blue Monday...

Barbara Jean,
You are just the cutest!!! Love that pic of you in your apron!! I bet that pie crust will be the home for some delicious pie!!!

I love how you see things...and how you create something beautiful out of such simple things!!

You are a blessing to me...

Barbara, thank you so much for stopping over at my blog, it is lovely to meet you. I love your blue for Monday, and your blue apron is darling, I really need to get me an apron, I seem to spill so many things on my clothes while I cook, when I grew up I guess I always forgot about aprons and now that I'm older I want to keep my clothes clean, I have ruined two shirts this past week with cooking

Lovely blog I have signed up to follow.

Barbara Jean, I received the friends orniments today. They are just as special in real life as they were on your blog. I can't wait to give one to my friend.

I can't figure out how to give you that $5.00 on Pay Pal. I'll get a check in the mail tomorrow. The tea set will be an extra surprise for my granddaughters.

Thank you for your comment about my aprons.

love ya


Looking cute in your apron :) Your tags are sweet also.
I could use a few more hours in my day!

cindy said...

Ooooh! Come make pies in your cute apron at my house :)

I totally agree about birdcages, so many possibilities for changing up the decor!

Thanks for linking up~

Carol said...

So sweet! Have a wonderful week!

Charm and Grace said...

Love this post, especially the picture of you in that blue apron. That makes me want to get my sewing machine out and make myself one!


Kathleen Grace said...

Hi Barbara Jean
I love the birdcage, I keep looking for one but haven't found a pretty one yet. It really could be used for just about any season! Your tags are beautiful, I love making special tags for my Christmas gifts! Now I'm looking forward to seeing the snowmen you are painting. Thanks for linking up on my Handmade Holidays post:>)


Laurie said...

I have a birdcage! I filled it about 5 years ago and NEVER could think of another thing to do with it... So I'll be doing something for Christmas. You've inspired me and I'll be blogging about it soon!

Laurie said...

I did it. I was inspired by your bird house and posted my finished bird house today. I also posted about it here: before I finished. Thanks for the inspiration.
