Blue Monday - Dishes on Wall

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. Place the Blue Monday button on the top of your post so that people can easily spot it. Place another
Blue Monday button on the sidebar of your blog.

3. Return here and link in with Mr. Linky by leaving your name and the
Permalink to your post. To create a Permalink, click on your Blue Monday post title and copy all the stuff in the http window. It is a longer address so that people can find your post even later in the week--whenever they get a chance to visit. For those who just can't wait, Mr. Linky will be up after midnight!

Do NOT link in until after your post is up.

4. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Make someone's day; leave a comment.
I appreciate it when you take the time to leave a comment for me.

5. Check back later to make certain you visit all the Blue participants. (That's why the Permalink is so important.)

Today I have three dishes that hang on my dining room wall to share. They were quite difficult to photograph as there's a good bit of gold on them, and it tends to show up brown or black. There is no brown or black in any of these plates. This is another gift from my mom. She handed them down to me, and got to see me display them to enjoy in this spot.

This is is largest and the most blue. Of course, it's my favorite. (You knew that, didn't you?)

Then, there are two matching, smaller plates. They have less blue, more green.

Please check out the book giveaways in my sidebar. I do hope that Blue Monday people win!

Those are beautiful plates, Sally!

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Great 'blue' post, Sally... Those gorgeous plates remind me of a little restaurant where we used to eat in Sarasota, FL.. They had beautiful plates all over the walls... AND they had the best grouper I've ever eaten.

Thanks for the memories.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Sally, those are some amazing plates. I cannot get over the detail. I'm so glad you shared them with us. I'm going to go back and ogle them some more!

Happy Blue Monday...


Sheila :-)

Belinda said...

What an eye-catching trio of plates, Sally...and I love that they were something your Mom cherished, and then passed on to you to enjoy just as much as she did. They are beautiful, and make such a striking wall arrangement. :-)

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

The plates are gorgeous Sally. I think everybody loves plates.

Baba said...

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

Sally, Very beautiful and elegant plates! True Treasures! :)

I "messed up" on typing in my link under #6. I was linking it to the specific post, and didn't type it in right. So sorry! #8 is correct.

~hugs, Rhonda :)

Neabear said...

Your favorite plate is also my favorite. But all of them are so pretty. Happy Blue Monday!

The Muse said...

The colors are bright and delightful...I do totally understand the gold trim and highlights hard to photograph!...
But I think you did just dandy!

Unknown said...

These plates are beautiful! I have trouble photographing anything metallic also. do you edit your pictures after you take them? Sometimes a color enhancement works.

~♥~ Monica S said...

VERY beautiful plates you've got! :-) I have a similar one that I bought in spain.... I think they're lovely!

Those plates look so pretty hanging on the wall. Made me think about a plate my Mom always had on her wall, it was a gold rimmed plate with little circles with a president's picture in the circle. I used to think it was hidous, do you know what I'd give to get the plate now.I would surely hang that plate on my wall now. :)


April said...

Hi Sally,

Beautiful plates! I have some hanging on my wall that belonged to my mom, as well. Such a treasure to me!

Beautiful plates Sally. another wonderful treasure from your mom. It is very special that she knew how much you loved them by hanging them for her to see.


Judith said...

Sally those plates are beautiful and what wonderful memories attached to them. I am not one for buying ornaments etc for myself I prefer when they are given to me then they hold precious memories of that person and when I look at them I can pray for that person too. God bless you, Judith

Beautiful plates Sally, they photographed well. I just love the detail in them and the fact that they came from your mom of course is so special.

The Bliss Journey said...

The plates are beautiful

akawest said...

Your plates are lovely.

Again, I want to thank you for hosting Blue Monday. I had a lot of fun with my post today.

nikkicrumpet said...

Very pretty plates....although I struggle every time I come here....I have to quickly scroll past your header picture or I just get GREEN with envy!!!

Linda said...

Your plates are lovely and have wonderful detail.

Mojo said...

Curious... my link back to here took me to last week's post.... I've got it set up to search out "blue monday" posts so those who click it later in the week will find the meme post directly.

Ahhh... I see why now. You have a period between the "Blue Monday" and the "decor" in your tags. And my link was looking for "blue monday" not "blue monday.decor"

anyway, I've been up since midnight wondering where the Mr. Linky was.

Actually my post has been up since midnight. I was asleep. Gotta get my beauty rest ya know. Otherwise I'm scary.

Betty said...

Beautiful plates, Sally. My blue Monday item has been posted. Can you please tell me how I can get the "Blue Monday" blue bird sign to put on my blog? Thank you, Sally.

Betty said...

Never mind, Sally, I think I got it. Too late to put it on today's post, but maybe it will work for next week.

Shimmy Mom said...

Your plates are lovely Sally. And I have you interview questions.

1. With all the books you've read which one is your absolute favorite, besides the Bible?
2. What made you start a blog?
3. What is your biggest regret?
4. What is your greatest accomplishment?
5. Where or what have you always wanted to visit or do that you haven't done yet?

Can't wait to see your answers.

sara said...

the first plate is absolutely beautiful!!! what treasures!! I have a few things my grandmother gave me before she passed that she got to see my enjoy...very special!

Hey, I wanted to let you know that i have not received that book yet......I am dying to go through it, so have been looking for it. Just wanted to let you know in case it got lost or something!!!

Thanks again for all your great giveaways!!

Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer said...
