Am I Blue...........

Okay, I'm feelin a little blue today, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Especially when it's time for the  Cottage Colors Party over at http://www.etsycottagestyle.blogspot.com/  January's color is Blue.
Now my all time fav thing that is blue is one of the oldest garments in the fashion world, still popular today, and not changed in design over the last 100+ years.....can you guess?..........................................

 Click the pic to learn the history of this fashion staple
Jeans!
I love denim so much that I've used them in a few of my vintage inspired designs at
Brown Gingham Creations...............................






Now I don't have a lot of blue in my house, but I do have touches............................................................


A vintage blue Blenko Glass bowl


These English Aluminum plates



were a recent find.


I love the themes and the colors. They are so 1930-40.

These cobalt blue bowls aren't old, but the Aluminum server and lids I found as a set  are and needed them. LOL, when I purchased this the seller told me it was a bologna server....you placed the round luncheon meat in the indentations and covered with the lids.....I didn't have the heart to tell him he was wrong, but I purchased them for $5 and got the bowl for a $1 each at Olde Time Pottery.  know they aren't the cut glass or Pyrex type glass you usually see with Rodney Kent designs, but I thought it looked good.



This fruit motif jeannie bottle is from the 50-60's/ You sometimes find them as lamps. Industrious husbands used the bottle as the main body of the lamp and the topper as a finial.


Now these next blues are special to my heart................................................................................
This is our Shadow
(yes I know he's gray and black, but see his blue bone dog tag?)



And, these are two of 6 foundlings that are now Shadow's kittencaboodle
Chunkey Monkey (to the left of the ball) is one of 3 Russian Blues.
And, lastly here's a picture courtesy of God's handiwork...................................................................

Hi Melody, I enjoyed your post tonight. i am taking a break from embroidering at the moment to catch up with friends. I like the jeans and wear them a lot working at the lumber yard. We got another 8" over the weekend. I am tired of snow. It looked like it was heading your way for which I am sorry. I hope your mom and dad are doing o.k. We are doing better, but I am tired of the cold. Can't change it, but our weatherman can't guess it very good. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.
