Blue Monday


Welcome to Blue Monday where many of us post something blue. This great blue event is hosted by Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ Pop over and check it out and maybe join all the Blueness!Today I'm going to share an over sized cup. Now this pretty blue cup thinks it Blue Calico, but actually it is a forgery! Shh...please don't gasp too loudly. I haven't told this blueness that she's a fake yet!




I do love my fake Blue Calico oversized cup. Can you love fakeness? Certainly you can! I think a dead give away is the solid blue handle. Don't think I've seen that on the originals. But this fake blue pattern is so lovely.


But I love this over sized fake Blue Calico cup and you know how creative I am! ;) I decided to put a topiary form into the cup and glued spanish moss and lots of little fruits on it and tied ribbons on the bottom! I keep my wonderful fakeness on top of my refrigerator. I'm just going to keep mum about the fakeness. Shh...don't speak too loudly...we'll just let my over sized fake cup continue to think she's really Blue Calico. Don't forget to visit Sally!




I'll leave you with a little Note Song -



Calico Skies

It was written that I would love you

From the moment I opened my eyes

And the morning when I first saw you

Gave me life under calico skies.

I will hold you for as long as you like

I’ll hold you for the rest of my life

Always looking for ways to love you

Never failing to fight at your side

While the angels of love protect us

From the innermost secrets we hide

I’ll hold you for as long as you like

I’ll hold you for the rest of my life

Long live all of us were crazy soldiers who

Were born under calico skies

May we never be called to handle

All the weapons of war we despise

I’ll hold you for as long as you like

I’ll hold you for the rest of my life

I’ll hold you for as long as you like

I’ll love you for the rest of my...For the rest of my life
