Blue Crystal Vase

Thank you Hostess Sally for hosting "Blue Monday" for some fabulous inspirational ideas and fun!...

Be sure and visit the other participants at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/

Today I'm showing for "BLUE MONDAY" a crystal vase that has this beautiful turquoise blue pieces of crystal. The photos don't how show the full potential of the colour. It especially looks gorgeous in the bright sunlight.

This was my Mom's........she has had it ever since I can remember. She never put any flowers in it, I think because then you would lose the design. It's a special vase to me as it was my Mom's and I inherited when she passed away...........I keep it in a curio cabinet which doesn't do any justice to it, but I'm afarid during those dusting frenzy's it might fall and break.....I know I'm being paranoid but these things do happen.


Thank you for stopping by..........and be sure to visit the other Happy Blue Monday bloggers. Happy Blue Monday to All!

Love to hear and read any comments.........I really enjoy other participants comments and their Blogs..

  8. Hi Erica.

    What! Never heard of East Gwillimbury!?! LOL You are not alone. It rarely appears on maps. But you may have heard of Holland Landing, River Drive Park, Sharon, Queensville or Mount Albert, all of which are communities in East Gwillimbury.
