BLUE MONDAY

Good Day To Everyone! I am excited to participate today in Blue Monday hosted by Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ . Make sure to stop by her blog and see the wonderful blues that others are posting. Here are mine for today. I took pictures of a few items in my kitchen.
This is one of my favorite vintage pyrex patterns, Butterprint Amish Rooster in an aqua blue color. This is the last piece I have. I had a casserole dish and set of nesting bowls but when I moved, they broke. So I use this little guy as my butter dish and my garlic spot! LOL
Here is one of two vintage Lenox figurines that my father bought my mother. When my parents moved, my mom gave them to me for my home. If you enlarge the photo you can see how amazing the mother and childs faces are. Being I love this, it has special meaning to me.
Here is a collection of mini teapots. Doesn't the blue forget-me-nots look so pretty. I have a collection of teapots, teacups and other items related to teatime throughout my house! My mom used to make us tea when we were sick. So my sister and I have really taken that and have continued the tradition in our lives. It is really nice to create traditions because I think that it really helps to cultivate family. And as a mother, I am trying to create sweet memories for my girls! Have a wonderful day. hugs, Ellen
