Some home accessories have come and gone in my life on a whim while others have stuck around for decades. The common thread to those items that have lasted is that they have blue in them. That wasn't intentional, but something I've recently noticed.
For this week's Blue Monday, I've focused on art that hangs in my house.

Until I learn how to take a photo indoors on a gray day without glare from the flash being a problem, please excuse the angles and the fact that the pictures are propped on the floor or couch to avoid window reflections.
This picture hangs in my bedroom
This isn't wall art, but it fits the blue category. The basket was sold in a yarn shop, intended to hold yarn. Yarn in baskets always sounds like a pretty idea, but in reality, yarn will find the slightest rough spot inside a basket and snag there. This holds junk ("junque" if it is expensive junk) on a nightstand.
This one hangs at the bottom of the stairs. It was bought at a home party (Home Interiors maybe?) in the early years of our marriage. I don't plan on moving just to get a porch and door like that, but if we were moving, that is something I'd like. Oh, and a gardener too.
This pair of bears hangs in our family room
One of my son's friends told me that this is "just so you". What? Am I fuzzy? Patched? Stuffed? Hmmm, maybe soft and adorable? That must be it!
This is one of a pair of paintings that hangs over the living room sofa. The other one isn't blue so it didn't get photographed. It will have to wait for a different posting theme.
And lastly, another photo that isn't something that hangs on my walls, but sometimes hangs from my ears.
I had been holding the wings upside down in the bead store, wondering what I would ever do with such a weird finding. Then I saw the angels made up and was embarrassed by the huge DUH! that was hanging over my head.
Peaceful blessings to everyone and Happy Blue Monday.
