Blue Chair, Blue Pillow ... and Oliver

Today's Blue Monday and at first I thought I didn't have anything to share..... then I looked around my office / craft room / Noli room / storage for my vintage shop (this room wears many hats!!) and landed on my blue chair with its cute kinda sorta blue pillow and realized that, of course, I have something blue for today!

I found this cute cross-stitch pillow at a thrift store, just sitting there looking all sweet and perfect among all the *ahem* cast-off, dirty, yucky lovingly donated pillows on the shelves.  I guess the blue in it is technically a gray, but from a distance it certainly looks blue!

And, hey, the back is blue!

Perfect for my blue chair! Which, by the way, I got sometime back at an estate sale for (drum roll, please) a whopping $25.00!!! In perfect condition -- no stains, rips or tears! Yay! A small size to fit in a small room that's already crammed full of a twin bed, four bookshelves and an office sized desk. Comfy too.

I like to sit in it and crochet while Noli plays computer games -- I have to be on hand to read instructions to her and for those hard words that she can't yet figure out -- plus I like to have the interaction with her.

Can you see Oliver over there peeking over the arm?

>^.^<  -- You just thought you were going to take a picture without
ME in it!

There he goes!

>^.^<  --  A leap of faith. Sometimes I'm not sure where my immense bulk, um, masculine physique will land. (See, I can use those strike-outs just like mommy can...)

King of the mountain!

>^.^<  --  Of course King of the Mountain ... especially when I sit on the BACK of the chair!

Funny how Oliver takes over every post that has even a mention of him in it!

>^.^<  --  Who, ME??

♥♥♥ Linking up Oliver's, er, MY chair and pillow over at Smiling Sally's Blue Monday

I like the blue pillow with a village scene. Oliver looks likes he's King of the Hill. Most cats are. Thanks for stopping by today.

Oliver reminds me of Harry Potter in all that orange cuteness.
