A Blue Monday with "Glass"


Oh My! I am late to the party today! Blue Monday hosted by Smiling Sally has rolled around again. I have to make a quick post then run to the antique mall so I won’t be able to visit till later. I am posting some of my favorite pieces of blue glass. Some I still own and others that now someone else enjoys. I have a friend who says “You never really own an antique. You just borrow it”. How true!


















I wish I would have taken a photo of the fancy little Victorian stand that holds my Blueberry Fruit Dip. When I bought the silver plated frame, it was bent almost completely in half. I had it restored and replated. They did such a good job you can’t tell it was ever damaged.














































































































Happy Blue Monday. Be sure to visit over at Smiling Sally’s and see who else is “blue”!

Just gorgeous. You do have some truly beautiful blue pieces. I agree, we don't really own antiques, we just get to enjoy them for a while. Hugs, Marty

Thank you for sharing your blue pieces. I especially loved the blue hydrangeas! Hoping that you found some wonderful treasures to "borrow" after antiquing!

Blessings to you from Kansas,
Valerie
