Monday Blues


Mondays are rarely blue in the moody sense for me. It's the start of a new week, with unknown potential. But I do love the colour blue, and here are some of my favourite blue shots. Flowers from my garden (last year), some stitching projects, a fanciful handpainted chest seen in a store in Roche Harbour, a chair from Marie Antoinette's Petit Trianon, and the blue, blue water and sky seen from East Sooke Park.

I'm linking to Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. Visiting Mary's blog will provide you with a whole list of wonderful mosaics.

Love your take on Blue Monday!

Besides, who would want to have moody Mondays every week -- that's like living one seventh of your life depressed???

Blue has been one of my favourite colours for years!

Mmmmm, blue is my favourite colour - although white seems to be my preferred flower colour. Lovely mosaic. xx

Gorgeous blues - is there a blue that isn't?!
I love the collections - from the elegant to the homey to nature - perfect.

Blue is my absolute favorite color, too. I love the range of blues in your mosaic, each and every thing pictured is a delight.

Hi Lorrie,

Your seascape is my ultimate favorite - that leaning tree, the blue of the water and sky - beautiful!

I agree with Amanda - though my parents could see East Sooke and the basin from their windows I have never been to the park. That's a fabulous picture!

Mary said...
