Hello and welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally. This is my first week to join you all in this event. Please visit Sally to see all the other participants.
Above is my first blue this week and it's is one of my silk ribbon embroidery designs, you can see my silk ribbon work on my shop in Etsy

Above I have for you my Holly Hobbie, she is all dressed in blue so I thought you would enjoy seeing her today. I thought they were all done making Holly Hobbie then the Danbury Mint came out with her in 2003. I was thrilled, they have only done one so far but I'm hoping for more! I think she is just so sweet!

Thank you so much for stopping by and joining me for my first Blue Monday. How is the weather where you are? We are buried in snow here today in WV ! Have a great week!
Bless You, Shirl

Glad you could join in on Blue Monday! Your Holly Hobbie brings back some good memories; somewhere I still have my small stuffed rag doll!

HI Shirl,
Your Blue Monday treasures are wonderful. I love your sweet mitten. Everything you design is darling.
We are cold but no snow. Our temps are all over the place. From freezing temperatures to nearly 80 degrees predicted this week.

Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments. I hope you can stop back for the shabby rose room coming later in the week.

Love ya, Celestina Marie

Sweet blue mitten, Shirl! And of course I have to like Holly Hobbie! :>

Our area of VA. keeps getting snow flurries and ice but we're above zero again so we're happy!

I'm still waiting to see inside that cake... ~ Wink ~
