BLUE MONDAY:Handcrafted blues...&views

A friend of mine is going to make a shawl. Take a look at this lovely, bluey crochet yarn.-I get the blues! Don't you?
And then, we will take a walk on the beach with the blue skies and the blue sea around. Are you ready for a swim in the blue water?
I'm not.I think it is too cold nowadays in these bleusy october-days.
And someone has lost his sunglasses... A giant, uh?

For some months ago - summer-days of 2009 - it was a better weather and warmer water for swimming, as you can see.
And here are the sunglasses again. Are they made for a giant?... No, of course, it is a sculpture, and the artist is Patrick Oppliger. Read more HERE
(The beachphoto is from Åhus, on the southeast coast of Sweden.)
At least, I will also show something beautiful and flowering in blue, as an orchid.
It is a "Vanda", and not the easiest orchid to grow in your home.
Fact is, you must have a special greenhouse to cultivate these kinds of orchids, or live in the tropics, where they come from.
I took the photo, for some years ago, when I was visiting an exhibition of orchids.
But HERE is an easier orchid to cultivate in your home.

A happy message came to me, this Blue Monday, that I have won 1:rst prize from MY PRECIOUS HOME Oh, I am so bluesy happy today! A bunch of Blue Monday-hugs to MAUD!!!

Then I will give my regards to every happy bluesy people, who had written such nice comments on my Blue Monday-posts. Many thank's from me!
Have a nice BLUES of this monday too, and a great week to look forward to!

Läckert garn i schalen...min mamma stickar strumpor i ngt liknande men jag har aldrig tänkt så långt som till att virka i det...den blir nog fin, scalen alltså.

As always, enjoyed your blues for today. I have seen a lot of sculptures, but never sun glasses. Good luck on the shawl.

TACK för din kommentar!

Jag förstår verkligen att du tänker vaccinera dig, det borde jag också göra, med tanke på att mitt immunförsvar är så då måste man inte vara FRISK när man får sprutan..? Då kan jag ju INTE ta den alls...

KRAM, Jenny
