Hello and Welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally. If you go to visit her you can get a list of all the other participants.

Today for a touch of blue I have my Easter placemats done in a background of blue checks. I got these at Kohl's last Easter season.
A few pics of my kitchen island decorated for Easter. Some blue here and there.

A few Holly Hobbies all decked out for Easter. A cute little Easter bunny brooch that my daughter Jen cross stitched for me.

Some blue glitter eggs that I made using Martha Stewart glitter. I'm still looking for some pretty white vintage millinery to put on the tops of the eggs.

Another one of my favorite cross stitched items is this cute little basket with Alma Lynne geese all decked out for spring.

This pretty Easter plate was hand painted with roses by my friend Celeste of Celestina Marie Designs.

A pretty Easter serving dish with salt and pepper shaker, I purchased this from Avon years ago, love it!
I cross stitched these three spring ornaments back in 1985, I still think they are just soooo cute!
Another closup of ornaments on the Easter tree.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you. Bless you, Shirl

Happy Blue Monday! Your Easter decor is so festive and pretty. The eggs are fantastic. I bought a couple of things from Martha's line the other day and love it. Those eggs would be fantastic with white flowers. They do however, look good just the way they are.

You always have such lovely photos! And I have that very same Easter plate, handpainted with roses by the Etsy painter. Wow. We now have something really in common. LOL I posted a picture of it on my blog today; please come and see it! It's such a small world, isn't it? We're all connected in some way, with some sort of thread.
