Unusual Blues

 To celebrate Blue Monday I'm sharing this
 old Tom Thumb Typewriter I found on vacation.
 Love this turquoise blue color.
 and the little keys, with letters and numbers on them.
 Blue bowl, and see the blue pot holders and doilies??
One is a little crochet blue dress pot holder.
 Remember when thread cost 15 cents? Seems like yesterday.
not sure why I love these, but I do,
and this one is blue.
Some fun little ideas coming for these
on Tool Time Tuesday!!

I love the old wooden thread spools. They seem so nostalgic. The blue type writer is awesome. I don't think we appreciated its colors back in the day.

I remember when thread cost a nickel.

I love those blues!

Happy Blue Monday, Barbara Jean. Be sure to check out my book giveaway.

Sadly, yes I do remember when thread was 15 cents. My sister and I were given a Tom Thumb typewriter when we were kids.

I did not know there was typewriter by that name. It is neat and a pretty shade of blue.

That typewriter is fantastic. I actually learned to type on an old one like that in high school, although we did have a Selectric at home. Of course, I love the crochet pieces. Best wishes for a great week, Tammy

Well what a neat typewriter, never seen a Thom Thumb one. And I love the simple pic of the thread-so neat.

I love your little blues. I have several of the little glass salt/pepper shakers that hubby got me as a gift one Christmas. And the crochet pot holder is too cute. I love it!
