Christmas Blues

This post is all about the color blue. 
I hope everyone likes the color blue or this post could make you feel blue.

These are some pictures that have a Christmas look to them.

This is a shelf in my Hoosier with some winter looking Pyrex and some kneehugger elves.  The split serving Pyrex dishes are in the snowflake pattern.

I found this lovely blue velvet gown at a local second hand store.
Both brooches are unsigned pieces I've added to my collection.

These finds are of mid modern glasses, a double sided pouring gravy bowl and blue glass canning jars all are second hand store finds.

The abstract picture was one of those surprise pictures that I got taking another shot.  I liked how it turned out so I decided to add it into this post.
The Christmas Blues
The jingle bells are jingling
The streets are white with snow
The happy crowds are mingling
But there's no one that I know

I'm sure that you'll forgive me
If I don't enthuse
I guess I've got the Christmas blues
I've done my window shopping
There's not a store I've missed
But what's the use of stopping
When there's no one on your list
You'll know the way I'm feeling
When you love and you lose
I guess I've got the Christmas blues
When somebody wants you
Somebody needs you
Christmas is a joy of joy
But friends, when you're lonely
You'll find that it's only
A thing for little girls and little boys
May all your days be merry
Your seasons full of cheer
But till it's January
I'll just go and disappear
Old Santa may have brought you
Some stars for your shoes
But Santa only brought me the blues
Those brightly packaged
Tinsel covered Christmas blues
