Blue Monday - Easter Decorations

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

Help yourself to the Blue Monday blue jay icon located on my sidebar.

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

Since I've begun blogging, I find I enjoy decorating for the seasons. I thought that for the next couple of weeks, I'd share some of the Easter decorations in my home--the blue ones, of course! This is our front entrance. I love changing the items on this glass table top to reflect the season.




There's a chick inside the apothecary jar. She's carrying a blue egg, tied with a blue bow. I have her standing on some crystal and blue stones.







Sitting below, is this sweet lamb, with his blue bow, holding a blue butterfly on a pink stick. The bottom of his feet are blue too.




The chick shows up better outside of the apothecary jar. She hopped out to pose for this picture!





I bought this blue egg a couple of years ago at the $ store. I love the lacy texture of it.
Can you believe that it was only $1.00?

Happy Blue Monday!

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, I have bee in Atlanta for 5 days with my sisters. They did their monthly antique show and I joined them. As usual we had lots of fun. I will post it tomorrow.

Your Easter blue is very pretty and festive. The chick with the egg is too cute and I love it on the blue and white glass. The blue egg looks like much more money. A good bargain. I do love a bargain. Your home is very lovely Sally. I too love to decorate for the seasons. It puts a smile on my face and I am smiling at your post this morning.

Hugs, Jeanne

Beverly said...

Happy Blue Monday, dear Sally. I am especially happy today because I took the day off of work.

We had a new countertop and sinks put in our master bath, and we had the vanity repainted. The plumber is supposed to be here in the next hour or so to put on the new faucets. We are real excited, and I think it looks great. Now, I just have to put everything back in the cabinets and drawers.

I love your pretty Easter decorations. And, I like doing some decorating for different holidays, too. Your entry looks so nice.

La said...

Your apothecary jar is very pretty. I love your little lamb. I bought one a month or so ago and can't find it anywhere.

Have a great week!

Jingle said...

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

Hi Sally, your Easter babies are so cute! Ever since my kids grew up and left our nest, I find that I only decorate for Christmas these days. I used to go all out though. I'm glad that you are enjoying putting out your pretties and sharing them with us.

Have a wonderful week!

Sweepy said...

Woof, Sally!
I love your chicks and eggs.
In case you do not know, eggs (hardboiled ones) are my favorite and they are rich in protein too.

I should prepare for Easter too.

Joyful said...

I love your blue Easter decorations.

Struan said...

what an absolutely gorgeous blog you have! you are so clever - I have just started a blog The Curiouser and Curiouser blog, showing items that I find unusual old and unique - that I have made, picked up cheaply or I've found, I hope you like it http://thecuriouserandcuriouser.blogspot.com/ xx

Dorincard said...

Your blues are just lovely--especially, the little stones.

Melynda said...

Our seasons are rain and hard rain (hail!) can't wait for some sunshine. Enjoy your decorating!

Dorincard said...

Sorry, Sally, I rushed to add the second entry, before leaving home. I cannot edit blogposts from my iPhone, so I do it now, as I returned. :)

anne said...

Nice blue accessories mine is here, http://www.sheldontracy.com/2011/04/11/blue-monday-floater/ I already can't add my link here, I am sorry I am late

Sara Chapman said...

Sally, I wish there was some way you could keep the linky open a bit later. Various commitments make it very hard to sign in before 9pm Seattle time. I keep missing the cutoff! I have the posts (two of them: http://www.lovethatimage.com/blog/2011/04/view-from-the-fishing-pier/ and http://www.lovethatimage.com/blog/2011/04/sunny-beach-view/) all set up and linked but can't link up. This keeps happening and is so disappointing!

Your Easter decor things are so very sweet. Have a great week.

Sara

Woof Sally!
I thought I linked up earlier after Peggy and now I missed it...AGAIN! Maybe next week. Thanks for barking to remind this senior dog!

Shelia said...

Hi Sally! I love your little Easter decorations. Now I'm blue today, but it's not Monday! It's Thursday! :)
Is it getting really warm down your way yet? It sure is here and the humidity has already slapped my most tiny face! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Susie Q said...

So pretty! Isn't it fun to decorate for Spring and easter!!
Love,

Judi said...

Hi Sally *hugs*
Your Easter table is very sweet. That little chicki with the blue egg on its back is so cute...no wonder he wanted out of the jar for a picture. The lamb is darling too with his little blue feet....
I'm doing a bit more decorating as a result of blogging too..
hope you've had a good weekend.
Judi
