Blue Monday - Thanksgiving Pilgrims

It's Blue Monday! To participate:

1. Post about something blue on your blog. It can be pretty, ugly, funny, old, or new as long as it's blue. Leave a link to this blog on your post.

2. Drag the Blue Monday button from here, and place it on your blog. Place another one on your sidebar.

3. Return here after midnight when Mr. Linky will be up, and leave your name and your URL. Do NOT link in until after your post is up. Please remember to leave a comment for me.

4. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Make someone's day; leave a comment.

5. Check back later to make certain you visit all the Blue participants.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Folks, I'm most definitely "losing it!" I had the following picture all set to use for the Blue Monday BEFORE Thanksgiving--in other words, last Monday, but I forgot all about it!

I purchased the set a couple of years ago. Aren't they sweet? They have been in my Family Room; you can see "my husband's TV" right behind them. To the left is my problem blue chair that rolls. (I never got a workable solution for that!)



My pilgrims have now been packed up and put away for next autumn, and I've begun to decorate for Christmas. Please remember to leave me a comment. I am comment-addicted!

Hi, Sally!

I like your blue pilgrims. They are wonderful, and I like your blue chair which looks very comfortable (even though you say it rolls). :-)

I'm so excited that this is the first day of December, and we are on the countdown to the Lord's birthday! I love Christmas which is my favorite holiday next to Easter. I also love blue which is why I'm loving your blog. Are those sea waves?

I guess I'm the first one to the party, but I'm here with bells on!
Thanks for hosting.

XO,

Sheila... I've got you on my blogroll and Blue Monday on my sidebar so I can find my way home in case someone eats the birdseed I left along the trail!

kbbryant said...

Silly Sally. That is a funny story about your Pilgrim set! They are really cute couple. Hope they are happy in the box for the next 12 months!

Love your pilgrims! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

What a cute couple. Umm, I can't see Mr. Linky?

Greyscale Territory said...

Your pilgrims are so sweet and serene! A delicate, sacred sense of blue!

Chris said...

I love your pilgrams, unusual to find blue ones. I hope I did everything right for linking to your Blue Monday. Have a wonderful day.

Hugs,
Chris

bj said...

How beautiful these are, Sally.
Like you, I have several things all ready to post and sometimes, I, too forget! Well...I'm glad you remembered to post these to share with us.
I adore your new header!!
love, bj

Dawn said...

They really are very nice! I'm sure they were a lovely addition to your decorations this year. :) I would love to find some like that. I'm ready for some more "grown up" decorations.

take care,
Dawn

jeanne said...

Hello Sally, Love your pilgrims. So sweet in blue. A rolling chair can be fun!!!

Hugs, Jeanne

Elizabeth said...

Must have been rich pilgrims to be able to afford blue dye! LOL At least they're not in all black; they mostly wore purple, yellow, green, red; dyes they got from nature.

jlshall said...

What a shame you have to put them away till next year! I'd just stick some tinsel on them and keep them around a little longer. They're such a nice couple.

Mojo said...

Doncha just hate it when that happens? I've got most of my posts scheduled for the rest of the year already, so I'm betting there's a lot of this in my immediate future.

I don't have a holiday theme this week, but it's blue.

Oh, and I somehow linked my Monochrome Monday on your Mr. Linky. Not sure how that happens, probably a cookie left over from the last Mr. Linky I visited.

Sweetie said...

The blue pilgrims are really nice. My Thanksgiving decorations are very limited. Happy Blue Monday.

PlantBuddy said...

The Pilgrim figurines are so precious. Must look around to get a pair for my home. Possibly on E-Bay. Can you take the wheels off your blue chair?

Shelia said...

Good morning, Sallyness! Oh, the pilgrims are so cute! I'm sure you enjoyed them to the blueness max this Thanksgiving. I hope you had a wonderful day with your family! I've got my blueness up and running and I'm so happy I could add to your addiction! ;)

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I love your pilgrims. I think I would be very reluctant to put them away.
Happy Blue Monday and thanks for hosting it.

Neabear said...

I love the blue pilgrims. I would probably put them on my side table that I use often for photoscapes. They would look so pretty there. I'm wishing I had some blue pilgrims. I have two Blue Mondays this time. One on each blog. Happy Blue Monday!

Charli and me said...

Good morning Sally, I just love your pilgrims. So pretty. I hope you have a great day. We are off to the Doc's so I will be doing my post later.

Neabear said...

Thanks for letting me know I missed linking you on my blog. I was getting sleepy as I was preparing the posts last night. That would explain why I forgot that part. I fixed it.

Barbara H. said...

I love the blue in the Pilgrim's clothing mixed in with the autumn colors.

Cindy said...

Your pilgrims are great and perfect for the season! Thanks for sharing!

Katie said...

Hi Sal! Love the pilgrims! I may not get around to commenting today on everyone's blogs as I have to go into town today, hopefully later or thru the week! Whew, three trips to town for me three days in row this week! That's enough to make me blue! hee hee Happy Blue Monday!

splummer said...

Hi Sally,
Your pilgrims are cute! Like that color of blue on the lady's dress. My Blue Monday is posted. You can see it here:

Bridget said...

Happy Blue After Thanksgiving Monday! lol
Pretty Mr and Mrs Pilgrim you have there.

Sara said...

Did you get the replies to your e-mails???

I get your e-mails and I reply! Now I'm totally confused...

Heidi Jo the Artist said...

Love the blue pilgrims! Um, I think I’m losing it sometimes too…lol. Sometimes I think I just take on too much, but when I get things accomplished it makes me feel better than doing nothing at all….Happy Blue Monday!

G'day from Australia. I came here from Mojo. Yep, I'm sure I've got a few pictures that fit the bill ....

jsprik said...

these are adorable!!! Happy Blue Monday!!!

Linda said...

I really like your pilgrims. You are not losing it. We all do posts and forget to publish them. I'm not telling how many times that has happened to me.

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

Hi Sally, It has taken me all day to download pictures for my blue post, but I am finally done! LOL! I didn't add the blue bird pic, sorry! Everytime I try to add something else, it throws the whole format of the post off. It's been one of those days! LOL! But I did add the link at the bottom to your blog!

Love your blue pilgrims! They are beautiful! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! :) ~Rhonda

Needled Mom said...

Great "leftover" pilgrim post. They are beautiful.

I love your new header for the Christmas season.

salmagundi said...

I think I commented on your pilgrims once before. I found me some before Thanksgiving, but they are not near as pretty as yours. Sally

squawmama said...

Beautiful pilgrims Sally... I hope they have a safe rest until we see them maybe again next year... Have a wonderful night...

(((HUGS)))

Andi said...

OOPS!!! I was so excited to get my Blue Monday post done last night so it would post while I was at work today that I completely forgot to link in Sally!!!

Glad you stopped by to see it!

Love your beautiful "blue" pilgrim couple...very nice.

nikkicrumpet said...

How very pretty....its unusual to see pilgrims in blue...seems like they are always in Autumn colors...I think the blue is really lovely!

LV said...

In case you have not read "Coloradolady"'s comments today, be assured the little Christmas tree is and has always been blue.

Carrie said...

I was just able to put up my post for today.

Cathy said...

They are so cute, Sally. Thanks for all your comments. I see it rewards you with plenty of them. :o) By the way, though I know you dislike it, I did reply to one of you comments on my post.

Lorrie said...

Hi Sally--thanks for visiting today. I'm glad you got a kick out of Wanda--she's given us a lot of laughs in the last year.

Love your blue Pilgrims! I will certainly be back to visit!

Ruthie said...

I love the blue pilgrims! Usually they are all in browns. Very nice.

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Sally,have you looked for a cloche at Ross ? That is where I have found some of mine and also Ole Time Pottery if you have one near you.They are about half the price they are eveywhere else.

Darlene said...

Hi Sally,

I LOVE your pilgrims....they are beautiful!

Karen @ Arise and Shine said...

Your pilgrims are so pretty! And the Nativity Blog Header is wonderful to reflect upon. Plan to be back in touch with all the good folks on Spiritual Sunday, I have missed everyone encouraging post. Have a blessed week!
