Blue Monday - My Blue Dish

Blinkie Maker

It's Blue Monday! To participate:

1. Post about something blue on your blog. It can be pretty, ugly, funny, old, or new as long as it's blue. Leave a link to this blog on your post.

2. Drag the Blue Monday button from this post, and place it on your blog. Place another one on your sidebar.

3. Return here after midnight when Mr. Linky will be up, and leave your name and your URL. Do NOT link in until after your post is up. Please remember to leave a comment for me.

4. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Make someone's day; leave a comment.

5. Check back later to make certain you visit all the Blue participants.
I've literally had this piece of pretty on my bedroom dresser top for decades. I enjoy its color and the free form design. It stands about 4" high. It wasn't expensive when I bought it, and I don't think it's worth much today. There are no markings on the bottom. I just call it my blue dish.

Here's another shot to show you the free form design.

Happy Blue Monday!

Have you ever seen a blue panther?

Wow...the colors in that are really beautiful. I think that deep rich cobalt blue is the prettiest color on the planet! Have a great Monday!

Anne Fannie said...

Hi Sally, I love the blue color in that dish! So vivid!
Happy Blue Monday to you!
Love, Ann
PS I shipped off that surprise to you today!

The colors are really great and the shape is cool. It's great because you still enjoy it after all these years :0)
Have a great Monday...

Mojo said...

No... but then again, I've only seen a Pink Panther in the movies. (I think it's a camera trick myself.)

I really tried to come up with a Halloween-themed Blue Monday, but I just couldn't. So I worked it into the title... sort of.

Sometimes things become special just because we have owned them a long time. Your blue dish is one of those items and pretty too.

I have a fondness for cobalt blue items. These are great. The colors are wonderful. I remember my grandmother's sister in law had a collection of blue items similar to yours, and I was always looking at them with envy when I was little. Happy Blue Monday.

Good Monday morning, Sally!
And greetings from Finland once again.
Your blue dish is just this wonderful blue, which also I have, glasses and plates and bigger and smaller bowls. It`s hard to take a proper photo about them, I keep trying :)

Happy Blue Monday to you!

Gemma Wiseman said...

The depth of blue in this dish is simply stunning! And the shape appears to look like gentle waves from the side! Love it!

Hi Sally, I linked and thanks for the reminder. We left early this am and just returned home. Now I have to go to therapy. sigh.

Your blue dish is a beautiful piece of art glass. I believe anything cobalt blue will keep it's value. A very collectible blue always.

It looks like we have more blue bloggers joining in. I will be busy tonight trying to comment on all of them. I enjoy it though.

That blue dish is fabulous. If it's depression glass, it would be worth something eventually. But in the meantime, it's wonderful to enjoy!!!
