Blue Monday: Souvenir Handkerchief

Happy Monday everyone. Smiling Sally is hosting Blue Monday on her blog. This is where you can post anything blue. It can be something funny, vintage, pretty, ugly, simple or complex....just as long as it is blue. See.... Sally, I did remember to post this week....*wink*wink*.

This is my new vintage souvenir handkerchief. It really is vintage, it is just new to me. I think it qualifies for Blue Monday because of the beautiful shade of blue along the border of the handkerchief.




I received this in the mail last week from a fellow blogger. Elizabeth from Thoughts from an Evil Overlord blog decided to play it forward, and she forwarded me this lovely handkerchief....just because she felt sure I would love it.

And Guess what? I do love it. Incase you are wondering, let me tell you the reasons why. One, because it's vintage. Two, because it has something to do with Colorado. Three, and this is the very most important reason...because it was sent to me from a new friend.

Man, it just gets no better than that. Thank you so much Elizabeth. I am going to frame this little gem and most likely take it to our cabin and display it in our front bedroom, just as soon as we do the remodel in that room.

You can check out all the other great Blue Monday post over at Smiling Sally's blog. Have a great week everyone. Check back next Monday, you never know what you will find, hopefully a smile to start out your week.

  5. Hooray, you made it!

    That handkerchief looks similar to a silk scarf of Washington DC that I have.

    Elizabeth is a special blogger, isn't she?

    Happy Blue Monday!

    That is so neat! I live in Colorado and I'm so sorry to hear you're in TX! lol A friend of mine moved there last year and tells me horrific stories of the bugs and scorpions. No thanks! If you're ever up here for a visit, let me know and we'll go for tea.
    Happy Blue Monday.

  17. I like the hanky as well, and it was very nice for someone to send it to you. To Melissa's Cozy Teacup---I too like Colorado but am a true Texan--if you lived here long enough you would love it too---You can have just about any kind of weather you want in a 24 hr. period--sometimes 2-3 changes--the people on a whole are friendly--its the "outsiders" that some times give us a bad rap. you can go from desert to the mountains --from HOT HOT to below freezing ---cost of living is usually cheaper---and more importantly it has "COLORADO LADY" in it --who was by the way, born in Texas.

Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
