Two weeks ago, I showed you a blue dish that I had on my dresser. This week, I'm showing its companion piece. This container has a lid, which allows me to hide the contents. Want to peek inside?



Okay, just for you, I'll take off the cover. I keep safety pins in this piece! Dry cleaners seem to use a good many safety pins, and I just can't see throwing perfectly good things away. This keeps them handy.

The bowl with lid is a rich color. That's great that it's useful for you too! Have a wonderful week Sally!

Mojo said...

Not what I would have expected to find, but it's a good use for it. I love glass in that shade of blue.

I went for something a little softer than that for this week. There's still glass involved though.

That is a good place to keep safety pins. You never know when you might need them, this way they are handy. Mine are in my sewing room. Another handy place for them. I love the blue in the dish. So pretty. Happy Blue Monday. Thank you so much for hosting this fabulous Blue Monday.

A song for every blue lover !
My memory was wrong, I changed the title "The world is grey" into "The world is blue" !

Good morning Most Blue One!! I think I'm getting the hang of this Mr. Linky thing! This bowl is certainly a pretty shade of blue and now I know where to come when I need a safety pin!
Be a sweetie,

The pins make it even more shiny! It almost looks like carnival glass.

That color blue really seems to sing. Love the combo of blue and silver.

Good Morning Sally
That IS a very pretty blue dish. That colour is sooo pretty. You've found a great use for it too. You need to find a little craft to use up those pins.
Have a great day.

Happy Blue Monday, Sally. That blue dish is gorgeous. A great place to keep safety pins. Seems like i used to use a lot more safety pins years ago. They still come in handy at times though.

My third sentence is not a complete sentence. I should watch that when commenting to a former teacher.

squawmama said...

SAlly I really loved that piece... anything that can hide some little trinkets I am all for... but the blue in that glass is awesome...

Thanks and have a great day!

Sally,

Your blue covered glass dish is lovely. The shade of blue is so beautiful and what a lovely place to hide such mundane items as safety pin. Functional and beautiful at the same time. Have a great week and Happy Blue Monday!!

Sweetie said...

The color of the dish is beautiful. Also, it's a good idea for a place to keep pins. You always know where they are.
Happy Blue Monday!
Sweetie

I love the safety pins. That's how we accumulated tons of safety pins too, the dry cleaners. ;)

Barbara H. said...

That is a pretty container!

I hated to miss Blue Monday. I even had something planned. I've been fighting a cold since the weekend, and after just a little while at the computer I was zonked and went back to bed. Am better today though an irritating scratchy throat remains.

Ahhhhh...blue!

Love it.
