Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day! And Happy Blue Monday!This little boat is a picture holder. A good friend of ours gave it to Anaya over the Christmas holiday because she loved it so much.

I got this vase from my boss. She was cleaning out her office and was about to throw it away. She asked me if I wanted it. Well of course I would take it, and thank you very much. This blue beauty did nothing to warrant being thrown away. I know it will make a wonderful addition to our house somewhere. To see more wonderful pictures of something blue today, head over to Sally's.

Good Morning and Happy Dr. MLK, Jr. Day to you as well. I've been trying to figure out what I wanted to show as Blue for today. I think I'll go with my dining room walls. You won't believe it when you see them! Be sure to stop by Carlotta and see just what I mean!

Happy MLK Day and Blue Monday to you!

I love that little boat... I want to hop in it and sail away today!

And I love Cece Winans. I saw Cece and her mother in concert years ago, and they were amazing. That's one of my favorite hymns, too.

Happy Blue Monday...

I can't imagine someone throwing away a pretty vase like that-glad you were able to save it!

The sailboat is cute as well. Makes me think of warm weather.

Have a great Blue Monday and MLK Day!

I just commented but it said there was an error and it looks like it didn't go through. Forgive me if it comes through twice.

That's a cute boat, and I am so glad you rescued that vase!
