Coffee (or tea) cups. Had fun making this.

Did you know that blue is the most common color for bathrooms? Peaceful and serene.
Over the years we've had several blue rooms in our house (I used to have a blue kitchen) so it's no surprise that my bathroom is wallpapered in blue. Did you really think my bathroom would NOT be blue, LOL?? But there's some green in there too.
I love wallpaper. Even if it's not in style anymore. Hope it makes a comeback. I'll be ready.
Some pretty blue bathrooms from This Old House:
Hand me the bath salts. . . .

The New Year always inspires me to do better. Sorry, I've been a lazy blogger. Thought it was time to resurrect Blue Blog. Let's see how long it lasts this time around . . . .
Is it just me or isn't it more pleasant to eat off of plates and drink out of cups that are pretty and blue?
Surrounding yourself with things and colors you love soothes your soul and can have an impact on your mood. Blue makes my heart sing.

I love this quilt. Blue makes some people sad but not me. I surround myself with it and I always feel better.
Can you see the Baptist Fan quilting design? It's an old fashioned favorite and was machine quilted by Dawn Larsen before my book Remembering Adelia came out. I bought myself a Baptist Fan stencil at a booth at a quilt show and I will try to use it to mark a small quilt someday for hand quilting.
Look closely - these are half-square triangles arranged to look like LeMoyne Stars. A very easy pattern.
Thank goodness for blue and puppy love . . . .

We visited an antiques shop on the way home from Ohio a few weeks ago.
We sometimes use blue at home for our dinnerware too.
Cannot figure out why he eats his dinner and then always leaves one kibble in the bowl. Perhaps it's meant for his sister? Or maybe he likes my cooking and is sending his compliments to the chef . . .
Miss Fussy Pants here does not like my cooking unless it's leftover chicken. Everything else: "Me? Eat that? You're crazy. It's dog food!"

There's a lot of blue in my frig today.
I'm loving those healthy smoothies in my new blue cup.
I added half an apple, frozen blueberries and 2 T of yogurt. A twist of lime. Yes, because of the spinach it sometimes comes out green. But it tastes oh so fruity.
