Blue Monday/Blue Porcelain Plate

I just love blue! It's my absolutely favorite color. Each week, Sally at Smiling Sally hosts this fun event.
I don't have as much to share this week as I have the last couple weeks. I've been feeling really under the weather with a bad cold and cough, and just generally achey. I'll be fine to go to work tomorrow, but just wanted to spend a lot of time catching up on sleep this weekend.

What I do have to share is a beautiful porcelain plate. I've had this plate for several years, but have no recollection of where I bought it, but it was probably in an antique or thrift store. It's the only porcelain plate I own that is mostly blue. At the old house, it sat on a shelf under a picture which featured a lot of blue. Eventually, it will find a place on the wall here at this house!

It's embarrassing to admit, but there is a room in my house that is still full of boxes and not yet put together. That's where my plate has been sitting in a box for a very long time. I have to get it sorted through and put together soon though, because it is going to be my formal living room and my daughter wants to get married there this December! Oh my God. There is a whole lot more to that story, but I'll post more in the next few days.


As for right now, I'm heading for bed. Tomorrow is a long day!

Oh, believe me I know about all the symptoms you are describing. My husband and daughter were both sick this weekend, thus today, I have felt under the weather with the same stuff.....so much for my big plans to enjoy the outdoors this weekend...did not happen. I really love the blue plate. Very nice....
I was interested in your plans for a wedding in 2 months!! Fun......
Hope you feel better in the morning. Get some rest.

That is just my kind of plate! In fact, I am sure my name is on it somewhere! So if you don't find the room, you can send it on! Pity I live so very far away in South Africa. You are brave to have a wedding at home but what fun it will be. I loved planning my own daughters' weddings. Have a happy Monday.

That is a pretty plate and its good that its come out of the box and is going to out on display now.
I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. There was a lot of that going around my office and I had it too.
It sounds like you are going to be busy with a wedding coming up....but for now take care of you.

Gorgeous plate, Kady! I hope you're feeling better today, you poor thing.
Did your daughter's fiance ever find another job? Need more wedding details!

What a special plate; it will be so pretty hanging on a wall--perhaps the wall of the dining room! I'm looking forward to hearing all about The Wedding. Happy Blue Monday.

Beautiful plate; I love the dreamy quality of the transition from roses to blue.
Don't forget to stop by my blog and enter the drawings this week!

Mojo said...

Well it's about time you got that piece out of its box at least! It would be a shame to leave that languishing in storage.

Pretty plate Kady, hope you feel better soon, glad you got some rest this weekend.

Your plate is beautiful. I would like to see it again after it is displayed. We had a wedding in our family that was planned in two months (the others were at least a year in the planning). It was INTERESTING. I hope that you are feeling better

Hi Kady,
Do not let the boys near this beautiful plate, not even within breathing distance! :) Everytime Tyler, my 20 yr. old, get anywhere near china, something crashes to the floor into a million pieces!

I have one almost identical, what lovely shades of pink and blue together!

I will say a prayer that you are feeling better soon, I have been taking a product called Ultra Primal Defence, I get it online at Vitacost.com, I have not been sick in years! Makes your immune system strong to fight off all the ugly bugs...

Have a wonderful week, bless you this week as you heal!
XO,
Donna Lynn

Gorgeous plate!!!
Don't worry Kady, we've been here for 6 years this month and it still looks like we just moved in. Boxes of crap everywhere. I bet you still get your goddies unpacked before I do!
