Blue Monday - Here Comes Easter!

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

I'm repeating this suggestion because last Monday several people still put defective links in.

It's a good idea to check your link to be certain that it's loaded correctly. When typing in your http address, computers sometime "help" by filling it in for you. In some cases, that may mean that you have just loaded in your LAST link and not the one you would wish. Oops!

Please visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My house is prettier because of Blogland. I see all of you decorating for the different seasons, and I've copied some of your ideas. I do have fun with it. Here's the entry table right off of my front door. I'll admit that in this picture it looks a bit plain, but it does contain Blue. Perhaps you can suggest ways to improve. Should I tie a Blue bow on the top of the apothecary jar?




Inside the apothecary jar, I've placed white and Blue crystals, with a lamb on top. I took him out so you could see him better. He has a Blue bow around his neck and Blue feet. I've placed a Blue marble egg on a stand and a crystal candy dish with pastel M&Ms. Of course, some of them are Blue. My family especially enjoys the candy dish.




Here's the other side of the table. Next to the lamp and figurines, I've place a lacy Blue ceramic egg.




I really like ceramic objects that appear lacy. I always have. Here's a close-up of the top. It even has a Blue flower! I bought it several years ago at the $ store. Yep, it only cost one dollar!



Are you decorating for Easter?

Happy Blue Monday!

LV said...

Looks like to me you have added just the right touches. I am no decorator, but I like it just as this way. I am sure there are lots of bloggers that have some great suggestions. Sorry to say, I gave up decorating for any occasion a long time ago. I still enjoy seeing what oters do tho.

Marice said...

xinex said...

Lovely vignettes, Sally. I love the mother and dughter figurine...Christine

Elaine said...

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, I thought I was the only one awake this late. I just linked and decided to say hello and then go to bed.

I agree about the way blogging has changed my way of thinking. I have always decorated for holidays but I carry my camera everywhere and decorate in colors. Pink and blue. HA!

Your Easter display is lovely. Blue crystals is a great idea. The sweet egg looks way more expensive. A good bargain Sally.

I hope this day finds you feeling well and as back to normal as possible. It is a long journey to regain ones strength after all you went through. You are always in my prayers my dear blogging friend.

Love, Jeanne

Thanks for dropping by Ms. Sally... Your easter decos were simple yet beautiful... Looks so refreshing in the eyes, and you feel more beautiful looking in the mirror.. I suggest you place fresh blue flowers with a touch of lavender and yellow colors... To make it more refreshing... Xoxo

Beverly said...

Your table looks so pretty, Sally, and I love your touches of blue.

The world of blogging has touched us all. We've all become friends over the internet. Hopefully these friendship around the world are steps toward understanding how similar we all are.

Happy Blue Monday, dear Sally.
