I think this is my first visit to your blog! What beautiful blues you have! I love your dishes and that ceiling fan light, so pretty!
You might want to redo your link on Mr Linky, it doesn't come to your blog. I found you through your comment on Sally's blog.
Happy Blue Monday!
Love, Ann

Glenda said...

So glad to get this small glimpse of your sun room. I use to love to visit your sun room post on RMS, but alas it is no longer there.

At least you did post your kitchen again, on your blog. Thanks, I really appreciate it. It affords such a wonderful journey through time, with a closeup view of many nostalgic items.

Prayers continue for Kyra's recovery from what I know was a very frightening surgery. I still believe that the side incision was to prevent damage to the sternum, so future growth would be normal.

Happy Blue Monday my friend.. Oh I love coming to your beautiful blue kitchen. To say nothing about that sunroom.. girl I could spend hours out there with you visiting. Wish it was in the cards for me to get on a plane tomorrow..Thanks so much for swinging by the post this morning...your congrats mean the world...hugs ~lynne~

Gloria, It was so good to see some of my favorites again! The blue fan in the sunroom, your cobalt blue dishes in the hutch, and your blue tiled counter. We're finally digging out of the snow and I'm going to drive for the first time in 11 days!!!!! So Monday is a happy blue one for me! May you have a happy blue Monday, too!

Chari said...

Good Mornin' back at ya...

Hehe...just read your note! I'm tellin' ya...it was quite by accident that I found the answer...hehe! Yes...I had worked on that photo last week to add to my header and had been trying ever since to change the darn thing! Eeekks...I just realized something...I didn't want it to look like I was copying you though! Hmmmm...maybe I'll do something else?

So my dear, what are you up to this mornin'? As you can tell, I'm not doin' a thing...just sittin at the old computer playin' again...hehe!!! I'm all crippled up from the housework that I did yesterday...swept, vacuumed, and even mopped floors...eeekkkss...my back is killin' me! I decided to leave all my Christmas decorations up till after New Year's day...uh hum...that buys me a few more days off...hehe!!!

Love ya Sweetie...
Chari

Chari said...

Ooops...wasn't finished! Hehe!!! I wanted to tell you that I just love your header photo...it looks like a professional photo and I just adore all of your "pretties" that you have displayed!!!

Love ya,
Chari

Anonymous said...

Dear Gloria, I've always been a blue girl so my heart skips several beats every time I see your wonderful kitchen. Your new header is gorgeous and I love your new bust, it is really lovely. How is your grandbaby? I've been praying so hard for her and I hope she is doing better. Love, Cindy

Diane said...

GM Gloria! It looks like our house has been ransacked right now. I have piles of snowmen, santas, & misc stuff in the attic/storeroom to be sorted out. Ornament containers are downstairs. I need to organize that better too. I don't want to go through this again next year! I want to pare it down to what I really love. Looks like a few trips to donate huh? ♥ Diane

Lynette said...

Hey Gloria - I almost didn't recognize that glamour girl that popped up to wish me Happy New Year!! You look fab-o!! I am slowly making the rounds, I have been so selfish and lazy with my days off!! Glad your great baby girl is doing better - keep us posted.
Happy New Year to you ~

lvroftiques said...

Well nobody does blue better than you girlfriend! That kitchen of yours is the best BLUE kitchen ever!! And you and Chari are blog twins!! Your bust looks so much like hers!! I love your sweet girl too! Man I need to get on the bandwagon and find me a new bust so we can be triplets! *winks* HAPPY NEW YEAR girlfriend!!! Vanna

Donna Marie said...

Sweet Gloria!!!! I forgot to tell you how beautiful you look in your new profile pic! (You're smokin girl!!!!)
