I'd Rather Be Blue


I'd rather be blue, thinkin of you, . . .  than happy with s-o-m-e-b-o-d-y else. I think Fanny Brice may have messed some people up there. But love can be confusing. Sort of like the spring we're having. One day you're blissed out on the lawn, and the next it's chilly and your market umbrella is up a tree. Who knew the wind would rage while we were sleeping? So today, I'd rather be blue. Savin' pink for tomorrow. . . .




























































Jazzy blues, moody blues. . . .
 Who says blues can't be cheery?
Happy Monday everyone!

  7. Your displays are wonderful. Blue is my favourite colour and I have quite a collection of blue things. My favourite pattern is blue onion and there are several companies that make it. It is getting harder and harder to find though.

  18. Jacqueline, this is a cute theme. Love seeing your blues, especially that sweet textile with the blue fleur de lys motif. Is that vintage? Looking forward to seeing the pinks tomorrow.

  19. Just wonderful! but....please tell me, what is that delightfully decorative knife with the little notches on the top?

    I'm such a sucker for kitchen gadgets.

  21. Hi Blue Girl,
    Well if I read here first, I woulda got the answer to my question, yucky weather, sorry!
    Lovely way to spend the day.. all blue :-)
    I love your soft blue transferware, it's seeing all the pretties like that, that make the thrill of the hunt so sweet! Garage sales yes! Haha!
    Hugs,
    Bella

  22. Gorgeous photos! It's an odd thing that I really love looking at blue and white in photos or other people's homes but I have absolutely none of my own - oh,no! I lie! I do have two Royal Copenhagen plates that come out on display in winter. One has a hare and the other an owl both in wintry scenes. Maybe I have the start of a collection after all:)

  24. Your blog is just lovely and this post is in perfect timing with a few pieces I just picked up at an estate auction. All Blue & White Toile. This piece I have a question about is the lidded piece with the insert (third from the bottom) Is is a butter dish, cheese keeper or something else?. I am so new to collecting that I am not sure. I plan to photograph and post on the items I picked up soon. But I am so new to collecting that any info you might send my way will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much~Penny

  26. Oh my! My brother said y'all were having 75 mph winds!! Crazy! I looked on my calendar and we've had 11 "mostly" sunny days and 6 with a few sun breaks, January through April! The rest have been dark, gray, and gloomy--and wet. Good thing I have your sunny, cheery blog to go to!!! Every post is a beautiful and wonderful retreat!
    Thanks! Kay

  32. Happy Monday to you, too, Jacqueline! It's been blue and cold and windy here, too. (And wet, in the bargain! ugh) Beautiful pictures and lovely, sweet china and linens... so comforting when it's chilly outside.
