Blue Monday - Guest Room Pictures

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 here, 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 an encouraging comment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These are prints that I had matted and framed for our home over thirty years ago. They're now in the guestroom. This is the largest. You see it just inside the door. I choose the mat to match the slash of blue in the print.

I used to have the larger one hanging in the center of these, but now they're separated. These hang on the wall at the foot of the bed.


I'm showing you them separately so that you can see the pretty framing.





**If you haven't yet entered my latest book giveaway, please go to my last Wednesday's post. I think that there are some Beyond Belief books left to grab for the guy in your life. It's almost over. Please leave your email in code!
