Blue Monday - More of Rose's Porch

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. Place the Blue Monday button on the top of your post so that people can easily spot it. Place another Blue Monday button on the sidebar of your blog.

3. Mr. Linky will be up after midnight. Return here and link in with Mr. Linky by leaving your name and the Permalink to your post. To create a Permalink, click on your Blue Monday post title and copy all the stuff in the http window. It is a longer address so that people can find your post even later in the week--whenever they get a chance to visit.

4. Leave me a comment. I promise that I will visit you and leave you a commet. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Make someone's day; leave a comment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've shown you sections of my friend, Rose's amazing screened-in back porch located in Florida here and here and here, and you've clamored for more. Since I am one to please, here's some more Blues from that fun place to visit. This is the last I have, so look closely. Notice the cushions, pillows, lamp trim, table top, and rug.

The same table, taken from a distance so that you can enjoy the total package. Notice those Blue shutters in the background.

Here's another corner of the porch. See the Blue bowls, napkins, and chair seats.


There's color everywhere, and of course I see Blues. Why, even the ducks are dressed with touches of Blue.


Rose has told me that she's read all of your comments and is so delighted that she may just start blogging! How 'bout that; a convert!

Thanks, Rose, for letting me share your whimsical porch with Blogland!

Sally, she has the absolute cutest porch! I love that yellow striped table with the pink, the blue bowls, and the cute ducks!

Blogger is acting a little goofy. I got kicked off earlier. Le's see if it does it again.

Happy Blue Monday!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi Sally, your friend's porch is so sweet....just delightful. I love the 'lightness' of the design. So pretty!!

Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer said...

Sally..you are so amazing to keep up with everything in the middle of moving! I am impressed!

I love the porch... so much personality! Have a great week!

Mojo said...

Somehow I think I would have known this was shot in Florida even if I didn't know you lived there. there's something about the scene that makes the telling unnecessary.

Nice shooting.

Charlotte said...

Such pretty things they have on their porch. Thank you and them for sharing all this neat stuff.
Happy Blue Monday!
Charlotte

Barbara said...

Sally, I reallt do want that darling table for my lakehouse.
Glad you found an apartment, I know that is one thing off your list.

Happy Blue Monday!

Mary said...

Sally, thanks yet again for your efforts in making this event possible. I love you for it. It's no way to spend your Sunday evening. Your post is lovely. I wouldn't have guessed Florida. I was leaning toward the Virgin Islands. Wherever or wherever, it is peaceful and serene and that's what counts.

ellen b said...

I can tell from your porch Rose that you would fit right in with bloggers! So come on and join us!! Sally thank you so much for your hosting even in the midst of a busy time in finding a place to live and moving! Blessings on you!

Good Morning Sally! Happy Blue Monday! Love your friends porch, what pretty shades of blue here.

jeanne said...

Hi Sally, I too love Roses's porch. How lucky to be able to share her fun and pretty porch. You will miss her when you move. sigh. The hardest part of moving is leaving friends behind.

We are on the road today and my visiting will have to be tonight. Our luck of having a net connection has been mostly good. We will be in Grand Junction, CO. A new adventure.

Until next time,

Hugs...Jeanne

Be sure and not work too hard packing. Rest a bit.

Barbara H. said...

raxx a day in the life said...

Hi Sally, your friend's porch is really inspiring, there is just so much you can take away from it, and add to your own porch, Happy Blue Monday to you!!

43 is the correct link to my blue post...
I am having a devil of a time with getting YOUR site to upload right on MY computer...I'm sure it is on my end, tho.
Thanks, dear one...

Good afternoon Sally, I love Rose,s porch... looks so cool and refreshing.Have a great day.Baba

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Looking for Mr. Linky. I can't see him. I tried refreshing to no avail. He's being a baaaaaaaaaad boy, hiding all of the names of participants. ;-)

I will try and visit the people who left you comments, but I have to do that later.

XO,

Sheila :-)

amanda said...

Beautiful blues once again! I think it's great you've influenced a friend towards the blogging world!

Lori E said...

Mr. L is behaving badly as usual. There must be a better way. Your post makes me think of sherbet. Mmmm. Here is my link.

Hi Sally,
Love all those blues! I just love the whole porch! I would love to have a screened in porch! Mine is posted at my place, Sherrie's Stuff.

Hi Sally, Your 'blue' pictures are great. Thanks Rose again for allowing you to show off her gorgeous home. Oh how I love that screened in porch.

How are you today? Worn out I'm sure.
Hugs,

Fifi Flowers said...

Sally... I'm a BAD blogger these days... trying to keep with everyone... trying to paint.. trying to line up posts... nursing a convalescing from surgery teen... my head is swirling... I apologize for NOT commenting... but I do have a surprise coming your way... I love your porch sooooo much... I've sketched it to be painted... it just might be showing up next Blue Monday... ENJOY your day!

Boo-Bah said...

I love the little ducks and the blue shutters, but let's face it! I love everything. I want the whole porch!!!

Robin said...

Sally...I'm so sorry I didn't comment the first time I was here!!! I thought I did! How rude of me...but honestly it was unintentional!
I thought when I first saw this how delightful that you look at the porch and are drawn to the blues! My favorite is the rug...and the shutters...and outside the porch the yard sure looks plush!
Happy Happy Blue Monday...Thank you so much for having me...

Sally,

Rose's porch is the cutest I have ever seen!

Clif said...

Good pictures. Come on in Rose. Blogging is fun and will keep you from going "street rat crazy."

Serenata said...

I've sent you an email Sally, I didn't not leave a comment intentionally, just the comment page wouldn't come up and then I had to work and when I came home I was still having problems. It seems to be working now! ;-)

Lovely pictures

NatureFootstep said...

I love those chairs and the table with teh blue cups on it. It is a very nice group to sit and have a cup of coffe.

Greyscale Territory said...

Hi Sally,

You wandered to my blog and said you could not find my blue post! Very weird. Must be Mr Linky being bad again! I did put the right link in Mr Linky, but now he is not appearing at all! (I always check it!)

So here is the link again!

Cute cute! Thanks for the welcome today!

hip chick said...

i could have sworn I left a comment here this morning. You are so good to notice that I had forgotten. Well, what I thought I had written this morning is how much I love that round table with the lamp on it. I would want to just sit on that porch all afternoon sipping tea and eating cookies.

Judi said...

Thank you for sharing more Blue Monday pictures...I love those little ducks!
have a lovely day

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Rose has the cutest porch ever! I just love it. I love the whimsical touches and all of the color. If I had a space, I'd "borrow" Roses decorating ideas.

Carrie said...

The table and the duck are so cute!! Sorry I didn't comment sooner.....it has been a crazy day.

I want a porch so badly...but it ain't happening on my little ranch house. This porch is just beautiful and quite inviting.

Martys Fiber Musings said...

What a delightful place to share a cuppa with friends. Wonder if she needs someone to help her keep the dust off those wonderful tables. I volunteer.
I am truly enjoying participating in Blue Monday with you and friends. Thanks for prompting me to come back and leave a comment. Great week to you Sally.

Kim said...

I did it! I posted. How could I not...My favorite color is blue as well. Only makes sense!

Love the shots of the quaint decor, makes me want to set there and read a novel while drinking tea...

Amanda Guthrie said...

Tomarie said...

Now that's got to be one of the most adorable porches I've ever seen!! :-) Laura

RobinfromCA said...

Hi Sally, I'm sorry I didn't leave a comment. I usually do it when I put my link in but I posted close to midnight last night so it's entirely possible I forgot. I've been gone all day today so I'll be seeing everyone's blue posts on Tuesday this week!

Your friend has the cutest porch! What wouldn't we all give to have a sweet place like that to sip a lemonade in the summer!

Happy Blue Monday!
Robin
