Blue Blocks

Karen reminded me that I have not posted anything here for awhile. Sigh, I know. 

Some of my blue Dear Jane blocks. Just for you, Karen, LOL.

Feeling sad that Joni is sick . . . . Her music has always been a big part of my life. There is no artist like her. I was lucky to see her in concert every time she came to Chicago. Sending up my prayers. . . . .

Blue and White

Blue and white quilts are the best. Blue and white doll quilts are even better.

(From my first book, American Doll Quilts.)

Blue Bath

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:

bathroom with blue walls and vaulted ceiling

a turn-of-the-century vintage-style bath with soaking tub and wood floors

reader remodel bathroom

cottage bathroom with black and white floor tile

bathroom with blue stone countertop and multicolored floor tile

Light blue painted vanity, want to do this for the half-bath  Paint color from Lowes "Park Place"

Hand me the bath salts. . . .

Blue and Tea

I couldn't decide which photo to post of my lovely blue teacup pincushion that Sue Bennett made for me. What the heck, I'll post them all!

Winter Blues


As the Crow Flies by Jo Grundy

"Born and raised on a farm in West Berkshire, Jo’s love of nature and the English Landscape is very evident in her charming, whimsical paintings."

I love how the snow blankets the countryside, like a quilt.

Blue Blog - Back Again

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.
