BlueMonday and Dragonfly Symbolism


The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of  self realization, mental and emotional maturity with an understanding of the deeper meaning of life.
In my small collection of Blue's comes a perfume bottle and special scarf.  From all the 'What's My Color' charts and quizzes I've taken over the years, BLUE is a color I should wear....and I do...teal or turquoise blue.  Royal blues...not so much.  What's really the focus here is 'Bottle' and 'Bauble'...the Dragonfly Scarf/Shawl pin/clip/closure.
 
Dragonfly Symbolism first.  The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of  self realization, mental and emotional maturity with an understanding of the deeper meaning of life.  I'm liking this...it speaks to me as I near this months birthday.  The traditional association of Dragonflies with water represents an act of going beyond what's on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life.   Wow...that's deep and feels spot on to this 'Aquarius Waterbearer'.  Now, I know why I have been fascinated by Dragonflies my whole life.
 
Now about the 'Bottle'. How perfect is this perfume bottle for my collection.  It has all the elements of my Aquarian Psyche. 
 
It has been Pinned to my Pinterest Board 'Dragonflies', added to my ETSY favorites, and my Birthday Wish List. 
 
 I owe this find to my friend's board 'Pretty Bottles and & Jars'.  You should take a look at her boards on Pinterest...wonderful vintage items and loads of good Genealogy information.
 
Here's the link to my Pinterest board....

  1. Hi Sue,

    I love to wear blue too--almost any shade, but royal blue catches my eye.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  2. The perfume bottle is such a pretty piece. Seems like I've been experiencing some of the same things with finding a deeper meaning to life's circumstances, I think it comes with age. Have a great week.

  4. Gorgeous blue bottles...cobalt blue and wine red are my favorite colors! I had to come over and check you out after your comment, saying we have so much in common. And we do, even beyond the things you mentioned...a love of genealogy, of antiques, of art. My grandson was born in Austin. We were living in Ledbetter 13 years ago and the "kids" (daughter, SIL, and now grandson) lived in Austin when the event occurred. But my SIL is from Tucson, and we are here now. You saw that we have deep roots in Va (and my home state Al) But we have lived in Texas three times: once in Lubbock, once in Houston and once in Ledbetter (halfway between Austin & Houston, not far from Giddings). Oh, and apparently we both share a January birthday as well! :-) Hope we can continue to visit!
