Join me for Blue Monday at Smiling Sally!

I love the beach glass shade of blue green. Over the years I have collected several pieces in that color. I found this bowl at the Habitat for Humanity Thrift Shop. I payed 25 cents for this..

I will continue to work on taking better photos of my treasures! Thanks for taking time to visit me and any suggestions on taking photos and blogging are appreciated!

What a great deal! Why can't I ever find deals like that! I went to an antique store yesterday and everything was so expensive! I guess it's all timing with the thrift shops! Hope you have a great Blue Monday and a wonderful week! Sherri : ) sherri@lavenderfields

What a beautiful bowl. Amazing what you find in a thrift shop.

Hey Linda,
Thanks for stopping over at my's so nice to meet you. I love your blue glass bowl that you found....that is the prettiest shade of blue, what a treasure and a deal too! To answer your question about the runner, I did list the table runner in my Etsy shop. You can see it there if you follow the shop link that's in the sidebar of my blog. It is so hard to let go of my treasures that I find sometimes ...I must say that I was very tempted to keep this one for myself. Lol! Still might, if it doesn't sell. LOL!
I look forward to seeing more of your finds in the future. Hope you have a great week!
Big Hugs,

Hi Linda!

What a beautiful bowl and what a really FANTASTIC price! Woohoo!!

And congrats on joining all us "blue Ladies" LOL. Sally is a wonderful hostess and I think you will find a great group of women who participate in Blue Monday!

As far as pictures go, I am still using a old digital camera and my pics are the best. However, a bigger picture is always nice. I haven't done the huge pictures that a lot of bloggers are doing. But, just on Blogger, when you upload your picture to be put in your post, click on the largest picture setting available. That is the setting I use.

I hope you are having a great day!

Diann :)

Oops, I meant to say "My pictures are NOT the best"! LOL
