I know I'm a little late but I wanted to join
For Blue Monday
Here are a couple of Birthday presents I received from blogging friends at the Atlanta Blogger Tea party in June
This adorable little blue and white pitcher from my

The other June birthday girl Denise gave me this
This set of fish spreaders
These will be so cute on a beach theme table
Oh Look...
Here they look like little baby birds waiting to be fed!
Thank you both again for such sweet gifts!

These next blues I've had awhile just have not shared
I found this cute little candlestick for 59 cents
Love the rose design

This next Blue is well....gorgeous

I was digging in a box at a auctioneers warehouse and found the bottom and fell in love with the color he said a price and I hesitated.  Then he combined it with a Fiesta teapot and quoted me  another price (a really good price I might add) and then when I said yes, he showed me he had found the top to the candy dish
I did the happy dance
Now I think this is Fenton glass
I know some of you are experts and I would 
love to know something about it
I really love it and I paid $10...good?  
I think so!

Friends, this is my 199th post...
so you know what that means??  YES...

Those fish (baby bird) spreaders are SO cute. I think they are the perfect excuse to have a beach themed dinner party!!

I love the candlestick and the candy dish. You will get a kick out of this (I think). My son said to me recenty, "Mom, you're so into vintage, so I think you need to have a candy dish." When I looked at him, he went on to say, "Didn't people used to always have a candy dish full of candy. Didn't that use to be pretty common?" I told him that when I was growing up, both my mom and my grandmother always had a full candy guess what, I bought some candy in the bulk section of the grocery and dumped it into a sweet little bowl. I'm going "vintage" by having a pretty candy dish.

Wow, 200 posts. You've done alot of writing!!

What lovely gifts! I can't wait to see a table set with them. And congrats on the gorgeous candy dish. I don't know at all what a good price is, but that seems reasonable to me. Belated Happy Birthday!

Very fun and beautiful blues. You are right, the fish spreaders do look a bit like baby birds waiting for a bite of food.

The candy dish is awesome!
