Blue Friday...

Hey there!  If you're a long time follower here, you might suddenly realize (since I'm mentioning it) you never see much blue here ~ no blue stitchy, no blue stuff, no blue anything ~ until now!  I like blue very much, but our interior furnishings are mostly old red paint, chests, dough box, tiger maple and such.  But... ever since dear friend Peggy of Kentucky Sampler shared Master Chief's Blues, I've been thinking of sharing the Blues!

This small collection is truly the only blue vignette in our home, except for many other Blues wrapped up in storage.  Let me explain.  They belong to hubs, a/k/a the Ultimate Hoarder, loooong before reality TV.  His first job was a *runner* at an auction house at 13, he learned well and started collecting right then and there.  Then he taught me.  Fast forward a few too many years ~ we're swimming in everything old here.

These are high up in the kitchen, I heaved out the ladder to dust today, it never ends does it ~ ugh...
This is my favorite, very tall, it says *Improved Butter Jar*, can you just imagine!  Improved from what exactly? LOL!
There you go, finally a Blue post.  Anyone else wanna share their Blues?  Wishing you all a wonderful weekend:)

Tootles, Sue


  1. I love blue. I have a couple of "flow blue" plates that were my grandmother's. I love them.
    Cool jars!

  2. I have a couple of the Blue Willow plates that were my mothers. She loved that design and I kind of fell into loving it along with her. Your "blues" are really nice and are such a pretty "blue". I have an older brother who collects old bottles and jars....he'd love yours.

  3. Awww...Sue I love your husbands "blues", especially that butter jar! Never seen one of those.
    I have been resisting the urge to comment or do anything bloggy until I get my house in order. It was a long exhausting outage this time and it is taking me longer to get back to NORMAL.
    Thank you so much for sharing your blues. Love, love, LOVE them!!!
    I hope to be posting again soon.

  4. I am a lover of blue as well!! What a beautiful collection you have!!

  5. I adore the blue jars!! I collect blue things as well, but mainly darker blue vases, or other knickknacks that are asking to be taken home because they are blue. I'll have to keep my eye out for blue mason jars!!

  6. Hi Sue
    Thanks for visiting my blog and becoming my 100th follower :)
    I have really enjoyed my visit to your blog today. Your stitching projects are beautiful. Love this blue post too, blue is my favorite color.
    Best wishes from England.

  7. Hi Sue, just found you via Nicky's blog... Your sense of humour echoes mine as we were thinking the same thing about the 'F' word!!Looking forward to coming back and reading more..
    Love Rosie..

  8. Oh, so pretty! Lovely glass. I'm a sucker for glass and pottery.

  9. Oh, loving your "Blues" Sue... that tall "butta" jar is so pretty! I have a few pieces of old blue china of my Papa's and they are treasures, indeed! Thanks for sharing Hun... I hope you have a lovely, stitchy Memorial Day weekend... :)

    Blessings always in stitches...

  10. I've been away for a couple of weeks and missed your "blue" post, Sue! You know me--I am a blue kind of girl--my house is filled with blue and white :) Your blue jars are lovely--I especially like those tiny ones :)

    Having never dusted the tops of my kitchen cabinets in 15 years, I'm afraid of what I might find--good for you for tackling that challenge!


A visit from a friend is like a piece of fine chocolate ~ always looked forward to, sincerely appreciated, over with and gone too soon... and leaving you wanting more:)

Sweet thanks for sharing a moment of your day ♥
