Blue Monday! Dancing Shoes

I'll tell you one thing, if my feet could stand it they would be wearing these blue gingham high heels and dancing the night away!  When I was a kid I always said I would  wear high heels and especially those with no back.  You know the kind.....the ones the movie stars like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor seemed to wear.  You may ask if I am wearing them as I write this post....the answer is , "Not tonight." To see more fabulous blue things click HERE  and see what people have posted on Smiling Sally's blog.

Pink Saturday on Sunday!

Just can't seem to get it together for this great Pink Saturday challenge.  Czech this'll see some really yummy pink things posted HERE  .  I have been gathering pink things to use in a project. When it's complete I will share it with everyone! The little paper flower bouquet from the 50's brings back lots of memories of shopping at the local five and dime store.  My favorite store was called McCrory's!

Happy Blue Monday - What's Behind the Blue Door?

I just wonder.... what IS behind the blue door?  Does anyone ever peer over the transom window at people passing by?   Is it a dusty storage building?  Do skeletons live there?  Could this be where Francine and Hunky Jones create beautiful art?  Or, perhaps Ignac Krepchak once had a photography studio behind this blue door. To see more blue things stop by and see sally and the gang at

Blue Monday Fabric Collage In the Making

We are having horribly high winds and devastating wildfires here in Central Texas due to hurricane Lee.  Our prayers go out to those who have lost homes and property. 
I hurriedly snapped this grouping this morning before it was gone with the wind.  This is really just a sneak peak of what I will create later today but I was impatient, as usual!  I'll post the finished product later...stay tuned!  In the meantime,,,tell me about your fondest memories of swinging in your backyard! Go to Blue Monday on Smiling Sally's blog to see more interesting things made by some creative individuals.
