Every Monday, I'll have a blue post, and I'd like to invite you to participate. To participate all you need do is:
1. Post about something blue on a Monday. It can be pretty, ugly, funny, old, or new as long as it's blue. You decide if you want to skip a week and play the next week, or if you want to play every week.
2. Drag the Blue Monday button from here and place it on your post and on the sidebar of your blog.
3. Return here and leave your name (it can be a first name or a code name), your URL (blog address) by using Mr. Linky. Don't forget to leave me a comment!
4. Visit other blue participants by clicking on their links and leave nice comments. If you can't get around to everyone's blog today, visit during the week.
Sound like fun? Gather up your blue items and ideas, and we'll play together. Here's my offering for today.
Although Blue is my favorite color, it is not the color of the exterior of my home. However, it is used for exterior house paint in South Florida. I said all of that because I posted once on pink houses, and someone thought that it was my house. The houses pictured here are not mine.
This home owner used blue for the garage door and the trim on the house.
A different shade of blue was used for this trim.
Here is an example of three different shades of blue: house, garage door, and shutters.
This house is in my neighborhood, and I must admit, I love the soft blue used.
However, this home owner uses a more vivid blue; he does not have the same taste as I do.
Why, he even painted his mailbox blue to match his house! (The rust color on the bottom is from well water.)
Here's one house that's blue with white trim. Now remember, we can do ugly blue too. Get ready!
This blue house with white trim house is in the running for the ugliest blue house I've ever seen! Even the rock trim was painted. The red bench does not help! They have neighbors with different tastes; notice the yellow house next door.
Clearly, this house takes the prize for the most horrible use of blue paint! Notice the red door. What were they thinking?
I hope that you were able to have a chuckle today with my tour of South Florida blue homes.
Someone, maybe you, won Shoot the Moon, and now I have a new book giveaway: Altar Call by Hope Lyda. Check out my other blog Book Critiques after you leave a comment for me. You know I love comments!
