Blue Books



Yesterday I got out my blue books and learned how to make a collage!




If you have read my earlier post on brown books then you already know that I am a book junkie.....put that together with my adoration of the color blue and well.........there are a lot of blue books in my home. This one is seasonally titled....Easter Eggs!






This book is not only blue but was written by another Laura E. ...........



I am sure I need this one.



Love the little fleur de lis...........



Piles of blue texts....






Love the graphics....



These French texts with their faded shades of blue make my heart sing!



Love the color.....love the graphics.....






Hope you liked my blue books......next I will have to do the red...or maybe all the white? Wait till you see my black books......will save those for Halloween!

So, so pretty! The blue color is so saturated. They look great.

I never thought of collecting blue books. What a great idea!!! They really look great all together. Great job on the collage. It's spectacular when you click on it and enlarge it.
Big Hugs,

I love all your blue! I love books and I love blue! We have much in common, it seems. I am very envious of your old books. I'm wondering where I could happen upon some of those... By the way, do you mind my asking how you came up with your blog name?

Thank you all for your kind comments.....my blog name? It's kind of strange but it's been in my mind for years....was always thinking that one day if I ever left the corporate world and had more time to devote to my antiques, art and decorating....I would name my shop or online store.....52FLEA. I have been collecting all my long life (the 52 is significant) and spend inordinate amounts of time at flea markets, thrift stores, yard sales, antique shows, etc. We sold antiques and collectibles 25 years ago before children and in recent years I shared a booth with Paula for a while...Still haven't opened my own shop but when I started blogging last month....52FLEA just seemed right.

I'm a book junkie too! I buy books just because I like the title, doesn't really matter what condition it is in! I love, love, love your collection of blue books ~ the collage is great, I only learned how to make one this week too!
