Hello and welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally. Today I have a pretty cross stitched sampler done in pinks and blues. This pretty sampler sits in a corner of my bedroom and makes me smile every time I walk in the room and see it.

It sets on top of a wardrobe in my bedroom that's used as a closet, being a pre-civil war home there were no closets built in at the time.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you. I will be back on Saturday with a Pink Saturday post, try to stop back! Have a great week.
Blessings to you! Shirl

What a beautiful sampler, did you do it yourself?


Morning Shirl,
Your needlework is very beautiful. The roses are so lovely.
You have a good week!

Oh Shirl. I love the sampler and also the quilt in the pic. I love quilts, and am constantly picking them up. If we ever get cold in Phoenix, I am prepared. This was a beautiful post honey, and thanks for sharing. Please stop by and say hi. I am having a manic Monday. Country Hugs, Sherry

Hi, Shirl! I love that sampler. It would make me smile, too! And your guilts... they are so pretty, too! I love the fact that you live in an antebellum house. Our Victorian retreat in St. Augustine is short on closet space, too, but I do have a large amount of space in the laundry room for storage.

Now, I have a question for you. Ita was mentioning today in her post that there are now blue roses (which I saw on a post on another blog some time back). Have you ever seen one in real life? And if so, I wonder how it would smell... if there's a distinct aroma that singles it out as blue.

In the mean time, I wish you a very Happy Blue Monday and week ahead!

Hi Shirl! Oh, I hope your puter is really back up and running! We really need these little boxes, don't we?
The needlework is gorgeous! Did you make it? I'm sure you probably did. You just have so many beautiful things!
Be a sweetie,

Shirl, I came by to see you, but I don't think you've got your PS post up. Just wanted to say HI! Am leaving town for a few days and will check in with you after I return.

Happy Pink Saturday...
