Blue Pen

Today I'm linked to; "Blue Monday" at Sally's.


Today I'm posting a picture of this decorative pen with this gorgeous............. turquoise blue colour.
This pen I cherish because it was my Mothers {RIP}. She's always had it since I can remember as a child. She kept it in her room on this shelf along with some other treasures she loved or sometimes in another room in the house..
I have no clue where she got it from but all I know that she's had it since the 50's.
Sometimes she would keep it as a decorative piece in the den but then when the grandchildren would come they would play with it and try and write with it. But I don't think it has ever been written with forever, as I'm sure the ink is dried out. Then after this pen got it's permanent home back to the bedroom..........and you know what they still would find it when the kids came to visit grandma.

Thanks for stopping by and I really appreciate your visits and comments.


  1. The pen is so stylish, I love the design no wonder your Mom kept it. visiting you back here through Blue Monday

  2. What a treasure! Thanks for sharing your blues.

    Happy Blue Monday, Erica.

  3. Hi there Erica!

    My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at http://www.eatingbangkok.com, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

    I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site http://erica-sweetonyou.blogspot.com recently and was pretty impressed. I've added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: http://www.eatingbangkok.com/foodie-blogs/ and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

    If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added (foodie [at] eatingbangkok.com) I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

    As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn't well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

    Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I've subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

    Warm regards,

    P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:
