Going Blue

When I visited the Discovery Shop and the Westlake Goodwill yesterday, I must have been feeling blue.

At the Discovery Shop, I found some towels and washcloths in blue. Each pile was $2.00 They'll go in the main bathroom with all the other blue towels.

I scored a even better buy on blue placemats. The two on top were 75¢ for both; the two on the bottom were 25¢ for both. Also in the 25¢ bin was a little book about the meanings of dreams. It even had an attached bookmark. Well, it's not blue, but it was a good deal; originally it sold for $4.99.

At Goodwill, I found more blue—or at least bluish—stuff. The decorative dish, receiving a cat scan from my senior cat Foxy, had a lot of blue. It was 99¢.

You can see the blue details here:

I also bought a grapevine wreath with blue flowers for $1.99. It looks great on my yellow door.

Finally, I splurged and spent $4.99 for a Vera Bradley bag. The picture below doesn't do it justice. It's a lighter blue than what appears.

The bag has been modified, though. It originally had a zipper closure, but the zipper part has been turned under and a velcro closure has been sewn inside. I don't know if the buttons which secure the turned-down part originally came on the bag or not, but they look good with it. Here's a detail (with the correct color of blue):

Finally, I bought a blue top for $3.50. It's kind of whimsical, but I should be able to find a place to wear it. Again, the picture doesn't do it justice:

And those are my blues from yesterday. All are things that I can use.
