Blue Monday - Everywhere You Look

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. Please place the Blue Monday button on the top of your post so that people can easily spot it.

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. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Make someone's day; leave a comment. Please remember to leave me a comment.

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

We weren't home until after 8:00 on Saturday night, and not a single Trick or Treater came by. Now, I have two bags of Snickers to call out my name. (It's noisy around here!)

Some people say that they're running low on blue. I seem to find it everywhere I look. Remember it doesn't have to be attractive. I even found blue used as these containers.



Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Sally, love your blue find! I know how it feels to be low on blue! I went looking through some old photos and I found a great blue monday post! Its funny how the closer to Monday it gets, how many blue things you see around town!
Happy Blue Monday...

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Hi, Sally... I always seem to have plenty of blue for some reason. Could it be because it's my favorite color???

Those paper machines are the same blue as one of my dance leotards from childhood. One year, we had sort of royal blue. Don't know why.
But I loved dance, and I love blue so it worked for me.

I think I'm going to head to bed early and get up and start visiting in the morning. I'm whipped from the last few days.

Happy Blue Monday, Sally, and thanks for hosting...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Diann @ The thirfty Groove said...

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Sally, I don't get it. I stayed up LATE to link to Mr. Linky, and even though it said my name on there when I went to bed, it vanished this morning??? WEIRD. You can see what time I posted. I always link up and then leave you a comment. Just wanted you to be aware that other posters might be having this same issue. I was the second person to post last night. Maybe I got bumped by Ann, but I'm not sure.

XO,

Sheila

chubskulit said...

I agree with you, there are so many blues around....

Be a sweetie,

jeanne said...

Good morning Sally. Happy Blue Monday my friend. Your blue is a great find. Ha! Good thing I have lots of family to find blue or I would be searching too. My daughter has blue and you will see it soon.

Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

jeanne said...

Sally, I'm back to tell you what happened to my link. Since I HAVE figured out how to link I haven't had any problems but this AM I started to erase the html and I was entered instead. Who could have done that??? HA!

I gave away the candy I like best first. Didn't always do it this way, but I needed to exercise some control this year. That may be the only "exercise" I do all week! ;-D

Boo-Bah said...

These were very original blues. You are right, if we look around blue is everywhere and mine next week are probably going to be strange ones as I am clean out of blue pretties. Unless of course I go shopping?? Maybe!

Happy Monday to you
