Blue Monday and a Giveaway!

It's Blue Monday and this is my first Blue Monday post, but wait! This is also my 50th post and I wanted to celebrate this event by having a giveaway! How better to announce a giveaway for blue transferware than on Blue Monday!

First I'd like to thank Sally for hosting her weekly Blue Monday event. You can see the list of other participants by clicking on
Smiling Sally.


I didn't really give a great deal of thought about actually writing a blog before I jumped into the world of blogging. I loved reading blogs and wanted to be able to share my thoughts, things I love and pictures with others. That seemed so easy and sometimes a post almost writes itself, but then other times, it's like pulling teeth to think of something to write about and actually writing it can be agonizing at times. That said, I'm amazed to have reached my 50th post!

My giveaway is for all of you Spode lovers of The Blue Room Collection out there! ♥

The plate is part of the Regency Series, and the pattern is May.


The sweet little Rosemary spice jar pattern is Geranium.

Please leave a comment so I can add your name to the bowl and I'll announce the winner on my PINK Saturday Valentine's Day post!

Don't forget to visit Sally's blog to see the other Blue Monday participants by clicking here.

Enjoy!

Diane

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

I've never seen anything like your rosemary spice jar. It's lovely. It is very small like a regular spice jar? I can see where a person who grows fresh rosemary can dry it and store in the lovely jar.

Sweetie said...

Congratulations on 50 posts. Your blues are beautiful. I especially like the spice jar. Happy Blue Monday!

Good morning Diane, thanks for the visit darling.. you know after "having" to hold onto all the paperwork for years, it feels
great to lighten the load..

I was going to have down time..and darling I am on a mission..lol.. have a super day.
hugs ~lynne~

congrats to you on the 50th post - I truly enjoy your blog & rarely make a comment on anyone's but I have to admit, I'd LOVE to be the lucky one to win the SPODE!! I searched high & low for months at every TJMaxx/Marshalls/HomeGoods that I could find but finally completed my mis-matched everyday china set of blue & white Spode which I love dearly!

pickme, pickme!!
