Blue Monday - Chaise Lounge

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.)

Most of you know that I love to read. I have turned that love into a nonpaying job! I review books and post my reviews here. Today I want to share my prime reading spot. This chaise lounge is located in my bedroom. See the BLUE carpet? Notice the BLUE throw and the BLUE in the print of the pillow.

Here's a close-up of my print pillow with the touch of BLUE in it. I have two pillows that match the chaise lounge; I keep them in the basket on the floor for easy grabbing.

Here's a close-up of the soft BLUE throw. Although I don't use it often, it comes in handy when needed. I don't know if you can tell, but the upholstery material has a thread of BLUE running through it. That's why everything coordinates.

Check out the Book Giveaways! Happy BLUE Monday!

Very nice. I think a chase is the ultimate pampering furniture.

That is definitely a cozy place to read/nap. I would probably fall asleep often sitting there to read. Happy Blue Monday!

Your chair looks comfy for reading.. and with the throw.. you'll be able to snuggle up and get real cozy! :-)

Hi Sally
Thank you for Blue Monday. A special place to enjoy what makes you happy. That's a double positive.

Carlotta said...

I love that pillow, and the throw. It would be comfy to sit next to the window on a cool day and cuddle with a good book. Look out at nature every chapter or so.

I went ahead and linked up to your Blue Monday but you may want to remove me from the link because I did not follow the directions...sorry :( My post was already up and I couldn't put the Blue Monday emblem up there so...maybe next time.

I hope you have a great day!

Nanna said...

Mamapippa ... said...

Cozy, soft and blue !
Have a nice day !

It's beautiful. Looks like a great place to read. The carpet looks almost just like the carpet that was in my son's room when he was at home. The room that later became my sewing/doll room. Brings back old memories.
I didn't do a Blue Monday post today but I've already got one scheduled for next Monday.

jlshall said...

What a nice, soothing spot. I'd probably do more napping than reading there! I really love all those blues - I like the lamp, too. Have a great Blue Monday!

Shirl said...

Hi Sally, Happy Blue Monday and Happy Groundhog's day! My post is getting up late due to snow clouds, I had a time of it uploading pics through the snow clouds.
I love your blue rug and pillow! What a sweet little retreat!
Bless You, Shirl

Good afternoon Sally, You have a pretty and peaceful place to read. I can see why you like it. I love all of the colors in your room and they would all be ones I would have choosen for myself. I also have a lot of blue in my home. Your pillow is beautiful too! Happy Blue Monday!

Hello Sally and Happy Blue Monday...

Just wanted to let you know that this is my very first time to participate in your "Blue Monday"...I had so much fun posting my seaside Master bedroom! Thank you so much for hosting the beautiful color of blue!

Well my friend, what a lovely reading spot that you have...I love that pretty blue pillow and throw...but my favorite thing about this beautiful decor is your mixing that pretty purpley chair with the blue...the color combination is just gorgeous!!!

Happy reading...

akawest said...

The combination of purple and blue is stunning. A chaise for reading is a wonderful idea.

Anonymous said...

That's so pretty and comfy looking!

I didn't do a Blue Monday today -- I got a late start, so figured I'd wait til next time.

I did tag you for a bookshelf meme, though, if you have time and want to!

Sweetie said...

Hi Sally - I love the beautiful shades of blue. The purple and blue really compliment each other. The carpet is so pretty that I could probably take a nap on it.

It looks like the perfect cozy corner to read in...and you have to have a soft fuzzy throw to make everything perfect!!! Or at least you do here in the frozen north!

Cathy said...

Looks very cozy, Sally ~
I think you love blue as much as I do.

Blondie's Journal said...

Hate to sound redundant but I sure could see myself curled up in that chair reading!! The throw would come in handy when I drifted off to la-la land! :-)

I looks so pretty and comfy that I could snuggle right in.

Happy Blue Monday.

Salmagundi said...

A chaise is such a wonderful alternative to a recliner. The colors of yours are great. Sally

Andi said...

Looks like the perfect place to snuggle up and relax.

Happy Blue Monday Sally!
