Feeling the Blues

Good afternoon and welcome Through My Back Door. It is hot so we will have to visit in the house today. You can have a glass of sweet tea if you like or the traditional coffee. The choice is yours. I am feeling the "Blues", what about you? I have been reading some blogs and have seen a lot people posting about their blues, so I decided I would too. I am not talking about those old sad blues, but the color blue.  For a while blue has taken a back seat to other colors. However it is my opinion that blue is a staple and not at all trendy. In fact I don't believe color should be a trend. I think you should find the color you like and stick with it, regardless of what the decorators say. I decided a few months ago I wanted  a blue room.
This is in the blue room. It was sent to me by Mary Lou a long time ago

Yes I have the blues and always will. Blue is a soothing color to me. Now I love my reds and mustards too, but wanted to share the "blues".
Can't post a blue post with out adding some of these beautiful blues.

So these are some of my favorite blues. I hope you have some blues that make you as happy as it makes me when you come Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: Had a scare this week. Boo was gone for 3 days. She is home and doesn't seem a bit remorseful for what she put me through!
PSS: It is still necessary we continue to pray for our fellow bloggers. Some are really hurting
PSSS: Thanks for all the Likes and following on my new FB page. My blog fairy Lynne set it up for me and it has almost 100 likes. You can find it on my side bar


  1. Love your blues, bettyj. Did you make the quilt?

  2. Betty: Love blue, too. I redo my bedroom for summer (remove the red) and make it blue and white. Also the guest room...started being all white and decided it needed color so I did it in blue and white. The picture of the girl in the blue dress is one I have been looking for "forever." Don't suppose you want to give it to me? LOL Hugs, Joy

  3. Blue is my favorite color so I have touches of it in every room. It makes me smile! Love your blues!
    Be blessed,

  4. Betty, you know blue is my favorite color! Love all your pics!

  5. Love your blues! Always a favorite of mine, as well!

  6. I love the color blue...its in most every room of our home. Love your blues too! Janice

  7. Love your blues.
    I have some blue polish stoneware I love.
    Even though I'm a red girl.

  8. I'm a blue lover too! I have blue in my bathroom and love it! When I got married in 1988 the most popular color to paint was "federal blue" as they called it. My kitchen was blue and I loved it! I too favor burgundys, mustards, black, and earth tones but blue hold a special place in my heart! Maggie/ Maggie's Lil' Fixins
