Blue Monday Again.............

Today is blue Monday hosted by Sally at "Smiling Sally". Click on the pretty blue bird over to your right in my side bar and your can see more pretty blues.

My blue for today is an old crock pitcher that was my grandmother's,she said they used it to carry water from the spring to the house . I am so thankful that we have running water and don't have to carry water.No wonder women didn't work back then, there was no time to work outside the home.Have a Happy Blue Monday.

Good morning Theresa, I think birthdays aren't as much fun anymore. I do admit to enjoying the birthday wishes from my blogging friends. Thank you dear Theresa. It is Jan's doing, letting the cat out of the bag. I mentioned a while ago that our birthdays were in the same month with the date and she remembered. You should see what she posted today. I don't know how she does it.

Now about that beautiful crock pitcher. It is lovely and I know it has a special meaning to you. I agree, thank God for running water.
Have a happy day my friend...Jeanne

That is so sweet, but it wouldn't carry much water, would it? Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday!

Twice as Nice said...

Isn't it amazing how hard women worked? No washing machines, dishwashers, indoor running water or plumbing. I have no excuse for not keeping up with everything!! A little case of the guilts. It's this darn blogging thing...LOL

Knitty said...

Nice to have something lovely like your pitcher with a fond memory to go with it.
Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Theresa
That is a lovely blue jug. I haven't seen one like that before. How special that it was given to you. A real treasure.
You're right! I know why women didn't work outside their home too...they sure didn't have any time!

The pitcher is lovely. You are very fortunate to have someething that your grandmother used. Can you just imagine a young girl carrying water from the spring to the house? Happy Blue Monday.

Morning, Theresa! Oh, the crock is so beautiful and what an heirloom! You're right, gals way back then worked as hard or harded than the men. My Mother is sitting here and said as a little girl they had to go to the spring and bring in water, too! She couldn't swim and was always afraid she would fall in!
Happy Blue Monday!

Coloradolady said...

I just love the pitcher. I have had to do without water a few times...but only during a remodel at our cabin, and it was not fun...at all. I don't think I could even imagine dealing with that all the time. Loved your contribution to Blue Monday. Have a great week.

Grandma Faith said...

Your blue pitcher is very pretty. I remember getting the water from the well at my grandmother's house, but she had a bucket. Great trip down memory lane. Thanks, Faith

Theresa,

Your blue pitcher is lovely. It's nice to know that even the mundane task of having to haul water from an outdoor pump can be made beautiful when using such a lovely piece of pottery.

Happy Blue Monday!!

Beverly said...

Happy Monday, dear Theresa.

I love your pitcher, and that it belonged to your grandmother.

I am so spoiled by my modern conveniences. Please don't take them away from me.

Dawn said...

That's a lovely pitcher! Can you imagine the number of trips you would have to make. My goodness! I'm thankful for running water as well.

take care,
Dawn

Picket said...

Oh that is beautiful girl and what a treasure for sure! I use to carry water from one of those artisan springs that my grandmother had capped off to come out of a pipe continually..it was cold and clear and we kept it fresh on the back porch in a big bucket with a dipper in it...I loved going to that spring and getting the water..except at night..lordy just go on and give me my whooping cause I wasn't going out at night back in those days...I don't care how big the flashlight was....young girl...pitch dark...there could be UFO's...GHOST...Monsters..anything out there when you are only 10 years old!!! lol Have a great week girl!

Great Blue Monday post,Theresa! I love your pitcher, because it's beautiful, but most of all, because it has a story.

Very pretty. Is it just me or does your pitcher have a calming effect? I could not imagine having to carry water!

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

Hi Theresa :)
That is an awesome pitcher that once was your Grandma's..:)
I also like all the ideas you shared in the other post..I have found some cheese ball plates and have painted them and used them as "cloche" and now I should try some of the ideas you showed.
Warmly,
Deb

The W.O.W. factor said...

Hi Theresa…I love the crock! And with a bundle of wheat it’s simplistically splendid!!
that was a mouthful..had to go test it in 'Word', to see if it really worked ;)
Thank you for your thoughts and kind words Theresa, yes the world is getting scarier by the day, if not the hour! I truly worry about everyone! And am fearful about my grandkids futures…
Have a good week.
And ~Hugs for you~

Hi and thanks for dropping by my blog! Now please don't get rid of those Santas b/c I'd LOVE to see them. I can see how you'd get tired of them if they were out all year. That's kind of the excitement of pulling out each season's decor b/c you kind of forget what you have until you pull it out. I'm a dish junkie too, so I'm going to "stalk" you & keep on the lookout for dish photos. And if you do get rid of them, let me know (if you should post on ebay or something).
