Hello and welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally.

Today for some blue I have these pretty teal suede brand new Thrift Store find for 25 cents. Great buy huh? They are my daughter Jen's size. I have not given them to her yet so she will be surprised when she visits my blog. I thought they would be so cute with a pair of wool dress slacks or dress jeans.

Next I have found these pretty vintage blue plates in another Thrift store for only a dime each.

My friend Connie over at Living Beautifully sent me this pretty (hand painted by her), little painting of all my favorite things, a birds nest with eggs, roses, lilacs and on a blue background. Thank you so much Connie this was so sweet of you! I will treasure it always.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful week.
Bless you, Shirl

Hi, Shirl...

First of all, you now have me singing, "Blue, blue, blue suede shoes!" lol! And speaking of shoes, those are adorable. I can't believe you got them for 25 cents! Love your plates and your pretty painting, too.

Hope you are having a Happy Blue Monday at your pretty rose cottage...

Hi Shirl, Love those blue suede shoes for Jen. She will love them and what a great price. The plates are so pretty. You sure found some deals. Our thrift shops have raised the prices and I have never seen anything for 10 cents.

Connie painting is so darling. What a sweet treasure to have from her.
Have a great day.
Love, Celestina Marie

Hi Shirl, Your blues are so sweet today. Connie's painting is a treasure and the tray is right up my alley. I live those portrait plates and trays etc. A great find.

Happy Blue Monday.

Hi, Shirl,
I enjoyed all your blue pretties. I am sure your daughter will be happy with her new shoes. Quite a buy, too. Your vintage plates were a steal for ten cents each. Connie did a wonderful job gifting you with the things you love. Have a good week. Vicki
