It all began with one...


Just this one little 4" porcelain egg vase inherited
in the family.
Then I came across one that was a wee bit
bigger...5 1/2". It had survived a break
and was glued back together. Not the greatest
repair job, so I willing rescued it for $2.
And finally on a thrifting last week spied
these matching vases at a local
Antique Mall.
I love the delicate purple flowers
with raised white accents.

Just the perfect charming blue to show for
BLUE MONDAY at Smiling Sally's.
Showcased in a mosaic to qualify for
MOSAIC MONDAY at The Little Red House.



And I hope you let me sneak into
THREE OR MORE TUESDAY,
since I now have four pieces.
Thanks Tam at The Gypsy's Corner.


Sometime quite exciting is brewing at RockCandy but I won't be ready to share with you until next Monday. Will be a nice Met Monday showing. I am going to be chasing my tail this week so that's why I sneaked into Tuesday with this post. Hope you sweet chicks have a great beginning to your week.

Smiles & hugs...

Oh, the violets are so lovely. Beautiful mosiac too. In the language of flowers, violets mean faithfulness :)

Hi, Candy... I'm sorry I'm late to the Blue Monday greeters parade, but my network was down for HOURS. It might go down again, so I will make this fast. LOVE the china eggs and the other china pieces. I can see why you wanted more because they are so pretty! I love violets and have some pieces my mother and MIL gave me when I first married. And I dare say you have a great collection there, Miss Candy!

Happy Blue Monday...

XO,

Sheila :-)
