I'M A BOOK WORM on this BLUE MONDAY....


blue monday...don't we all just love it!
thanks so much, SALLY, for doing this fun event for us....
we love it !
lots of blue out there this morning so please stop by, leave a kind and loving little comment to SALLY and visit all the others that try really hard to bring you lots of good BLUES...
take a little time and read some of SALLY'S blog...you will enjoy it...

*
UHHHH OHHHH....another BATHROOM DIVA and it just so happens that we were in
A BLUE BATHROOM....
"'SHEILA.....OHHHH, SHEEEEEILA"..... are you ready for ANOTHER DIVA ???? tee hee...


THE BESTEST ART WORK IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD......

The pretty plate (with a tiny bit of blue) is from MEXICO...
the hen and rooster....FRANCE....
all belong to Beautiful Daughter...
**************************************


I DO LOVE TO READ...
such a great part of being retired is that there's more time for reading...
when BLOGGING doesn't get in the way, that is.... :>)


I AM TOTALLY IN LOVE FOREVER WITH
BOOKS...
(see that blue book there .....it qualifies this photo for this BLUE MONDAY !! ;O)


BOOKS are pretty and so are BOOKENDS.....
(no blue here...soooooo...I'LL be BLUE !)

I AM ALSO TOTALLY IN LOVE FOREVER AND EVER WITH MY WALL OF
BOOKSHELVES... (remember...i got them one day at a thrift store for $80.00
and just p'd all over myself with excitement....they fit my wall just perfectly...
(just a tiny bit of blue here....*sigh)

AND....I just LOVE this book by
JOYCE MEYER
that I won from
SWEET SMILING SALLY...
please go by to see her...she really IS always smiling and makes my day a little brighter every single day!
(does BLUE-GREEN count? ....i think so!)
*
"SALLY, thank you from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful book...
i can hardly wait to start reading it ! I really am an admirer of JOYCE MEYER and am very
honored to have one of her books on my shelves...."

love, bj

What a great collection of blues to start our week. Love your Bathroom Diva shot. Your just the cutest thing. Think I'll go see if I can find something blue to take a pic of. I lived in a house for 20 years that was blue EVERYTHING and when we sold it, never bought another blue anything. LOL

Love Ya,
Chris

jeanne said...

Good morning BJ, I'm just a tad blue this morning. We are supposed to go to Christmas luncheon and we are snowed in. I will just have to decorate for Christmas. That's a good thing.

As always I love your post this AM. Especially your diva shot. Love the plate and hens. I am sure your dtr. has a flair for decorating too. I so envy your bookshelf. sigh. Our books are still in boxes in the garage. A chore beyond words.

Happy blue Monday. I need that book
on how to simplify my life. Lucky you.

Love...Jeanne

Stacey said...

A blue book by Danielle Steele. What more could a girl want?

You and your grand daughter are dolls. I bet she just loved that!!

Elizabeth said...

I am so envious of your wall of shelves!
Happy Blue Monday!

Great photos BJ. I just LOVE McKenzie Childs too. Black checks and all the beautiful patterns they put together! Yum! Have a wonderful week:>)

squawmama said...

Good Morning BJ... What a great blue Monday post... Loved what you put up on your post especially your bookshelves... They are awesome and what a great find... No wonder you were so excited about them... I am not much into blue and have hardly any in here... and if I did living in the motorhome it would be only one post... LOL LOL I guess I'll have to venture out to find blue things... Have a wonderful day...

(((HUGS)))

BJ, I love all of your blue and your bathroom shot! Like you, I love books! And I'll have to check out that Joyce Meyer book on your recommendation and Sally's. And those bookshevles are the deal of the century! WOW! If they end up missing, you'll know where they are! ;-)

Happy Blue Monday!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Sweetie said...

HI BJ - You really have a wonderful assortment of blues today. I really enjoyed your post. But - I must tell you that my favorite is the "bestest" art work. You really gave me a great idea for displaying my wide array of art that my grandchildren present to me. Happy Blue Monday.
Hugs,
Sweetie

Smilingsal said...

Your diva shot will thrill Shelia. I'm glad your book arrived, and I hope that you do enjoy it.

I LOVE those book ends! How cute is that?

Happy Blue Day!

Shelia said...

Good morning, Sweetes BJ!! Love all your books and those bookends are too precious!! Are those Mackenzie Childs dishes in your first photo? I love these, but alas, don't have any. :( Oh, yes, yes!! Another Bathroom Diva. I love it! This must be your gorgeous granddaughter with you!? I'll have you both up tomorrow.
Be a sweetie and thank you so much for your sweet kind words.
Shelia ;)

Simply Dandy said...

Hi BJ
I just wanted to stop by and say hello...I don't think we have ever swapped comments but I would love to add you to my sidebar if that's okay. I believe I left comments when you were in the hospital. I am glad you are better. I would love to have you stop by sometime.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

Bo said...

PlantBuddy said...

Books really are our friends I have found too. Fiction or non fiction, it doesn't matter to me. I'm giving books as gifts this Christmas. Have a great week reading.

Beverly said...

Happy Monday, sweet BJ. You are such a lucky lady to win such a great book.

I love your wall of books, too.

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

I love your idea of hanging your grands' artwork from ribbon & making a garland out of it! I'm stealing that idea BJ! ;o)

Becky said...

Those chickens are just the cutest. I bought my first two last week. However, they are not from France, but TJ Maxx! HA!!

Girly, you better get over to my blog and sign up for my giveaway! You're about to miss it!!! LOL!!!!

Have a blessed day girlie!

Deb said...

Good morning BJ
Your bookshelf looks like it is filled with some wonderful books including your new Joyce Meyer one! What a lucky win.
Love your little clothes line of artwork :-)

Tara said...

I have seen Joyce on TV...doesn't she have such good Christian common sense? Love her!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

You look lovely as a bathroon diva BJ!! Happy Blue Monday to you too! I am very envious of your wall of book shelves. My dream home will have built in bookshelves on either side of my fireplace...that is my dream.

Charli and me said...

What a great post. I love all of your blue. I especially love how you have strung all of the art work. I used to do that when our children were little.

Hi BJ! I did my Blue Monday post last night and set it to post today while I was at work. I was so excited that I was participating that I forgot to link in over at Sally's until just now...oops!!!

Love your Bathroom Diva shot!!!

Oh BJ, I twitch with the "Iwants" every time I see that pretty book shelf wall of yours!

Hugs,

nikkicrumpet said...

Every time I see your bookshelves I get GREEN with envy...or on Mondays I guess that would be BLUISH GREEN with envy. Those shelves are so perfect...and what a steal! But then it's the wonderful way you decorated them that really makes them charming!

Betty said...

Hi BJ,

I really like the new look you have given your blog. It is so pretty - all decorative for the Christmas holiday ahead.

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving. We spent a quite evening at home just the two of us.

I enjoyed your photos you have shared for blue Monday. It's so good that you love books and love to read.

PEA said...

I'm in awe that you got those book shelves for $80 at a thrift store...how wonderful they look with all those books in them:-) I always so enjoy looking at your beautiful pictures...that bathroom Diva one is just precious! lol xoxo

Deanna said...

My gosh!! What kind of stuff happened while I was gone??? :P

I see I need to do some mega catching up here at Sweet Nothings!
How have you been? I've missed everyone. How was your Thanksgiving? I am so rested that I feel re-charged. Don't forget, I am going to feature your blog tomorrow.

Lovins and mega hugs,
Deanna :)

Mary said...

BJ,

Like you, I love reading and read about 2 books per week. I would love to have room for a set of those bookshelves. I could fill them with many wonderful books so there'd always be one at hand.

A beautiful "blue" post. Hope all is well with you, my friend.

Blessings,
Mary

Anita said...

I am coveting your bookshelves. I had a wall of built in made for my other house and REALLY wish I had some for this house...I may have to get that done. Ok, that will be my new mission- you have inspired me to get going on it. Stop over and see in a couple days what I've decided...
