Blue Monday - Easter Decor

It's Blue Monday! Some people are simply linking in and NOT putting the Blue Monday logo or link on their post! I will continue to DELETE their links.

To participate: just click here for BLUE MONDAY INSTRUCTIONS or check out the instructions in my sidebar.

Please remember to visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links; leave a comment, and they will return the favor. In addition, please remember to leave a comment for me.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am not as adept as many of you in decorating, but I want to share my blue Easter decorations.

Here's some faux chocolate eggs that I bought last year from Pier One. I placed them in a basket trimmed with Blue netting and ribbon.




Note the pale blue on the dinner bell?




I've had this blue marble egg for many years.






A sweet friend gave me this bunny a few years ago.




Notice his blue eyes.




He has one blue egg in his basket.




I bought this lacy, blue egg last year from the $ store.






Of course Easter is not about bunnies and eggs as much as it is about a Risen Lord and an empty tomb.


If you are a "blogspot" person, you might find problems getting pictures to load. It's a blogger thing. (sigh.) I'm sure it'll be fixed soon? What a day!

Happy Easter everyone and Happy Blue Monday!

I love the first photo of the fat rabbit, very cute. Your very creative in decorating your easter goodies. Well done Sally.

Happy easter to you.

Self Sagacity said...

They look so yummy, I know they are not food, but I think I am hungry now, and imagining they are white chocolates. LOL

Coffeedoff said...

Love the eggsand the Bunnies are great!

hip chick said...

Oh it all looks so pretty. I did not do any Easter decorating this year. Our basement has had water in it for over two weeks now...the decorations are not in danger of getting ruined but it's to depressing to put on the waders to get at them.

Luna said...

I like your easter-deco!
But I love the bunny in the first picture!!!!
Happy Easter.....Luna

Southern Lady said...

What pretty Easter treasures, Sally. My favorite is the lacy blue egg with the flowers on top.

I hope you are feeling much better and enjoying your Spring.

Best wishes for a blessed Holy Week.

Beverly said...

Happy Blue Monday, dear Sally. I love all of your pretty Easter blues.

Easter is my favorite holiday, and Spring is my favorite season. After we went to bed last night, my husband and I were talking about the crucifixion and the resurrection. It is amazing how something so very sad turned into one of the greatest events in history.

Debbie said...

Good Morning Sally! I love all your lovely Easter displays! The blue egg from the dollar store is the best...I just love that place! Happy Blue Monday!

onangelwings said...

Love all that pale blue. Very pretty

Mumsy said...

Your photos really got me in the spirit for Easter!

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Darling Bunnies and Blue Eggs for Easter! Nothing could be sweeter than that!

Brambleberry Cottage said...

The bunny with the long ears is so cute! He just has the sweetest expression.

I appreciate that you turned the focus back to the true meaning of Easter, Sally.

Have a blessed week!

SO glad to hear the good news on your surgery/health. I'm so glad it was not cancer. (PTL!) I've been able to visit more people today (first time since participating in Blue Monday) and have enjoyed it. Thanks! Jenn <><

Carly said...

Thanks so much for noticing that I didn't link up. I posted last night, and often forget to link up the next day. I'm impressed with all of the visitors that you have you took the time to remind me. Thanks so much!

MyThoughtsMyVoice said...

Everything is just adorable, Sally! Love the bunnies and egg decors - stuffed, porcelain, or chocolate - - it doesn't matter at all :-) Oh , real chocolates would be so yummy. And the "lacy" egg is pretty too.

Happy Easter! You're right, as much as it is fun having thse adorable ones displayed at home, it is also important to remember the meaning and the very reason why we rejoice on Easter.

Mizpah,
Li

I love your Blue Monday posts as like my sisters, I love finding blue things to take photos of! You mentioned Kent with your comment - yes, it's a beautiful place. Can't wait for the weather to warm up though, so that I can take a photo of a blue sky for a Monday.

Thanks for hosting,

Bonnie said...

Thanks Sally for your instructions about participating in Blue Monday. Blue is my favorite color so I plan to participate soon.

Please be patient with us new comers. I struggled and struggled last week to put logo links on my post. I was glad I was not deleted. All the steps seem so easy after you have done them for awhile but when it is new it is painful. After reading what you said for a Mac I was able to copy to my iPhoto several logos. Now to add them to my sidebar is another challenge. I followed the steps numerous times and did not succeed. Hope to participate soon and do everything correctly.

Happy Easter

Nezzy said...

Oh such adorable bunnies. I collect bunnies and some are privileged to hang out at the Ponderosa house year round, others come and go after Easter. You have a great Easter dear Sally.

God bless and have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

Susie Q said...

I love that sweet bunny! Easter decorating is always such fun isn't it? I love that blue egg...so delicate and pretty!
Wishing you a blessed Easter dear Sally!
Love,

Jeanne said...

Hello Sally, I have been MIA for so long and on Monday I was driving back to NC from Florida. I haven't missed a blue Monday in ages. I came home to so much to catch up with, I haven't even unpacked. sigh. Hopefully today I will get back to 'normal' I have trouble remembering what is normal here. I think normal is constant motion and chaos. HA!

Your Easter treasures are darling. I am sharing a few of mine on Pink Sat. I never did get my Easter stuff down from the attic. Next year. The $ store blue egg is so sweet. You know I love a bargain.

I pray for your full recovery Sally. I do hope you are feeling stronger each day. You sure have been through so much.

Blessings to you and your family with Happy Easter greetings.

Love, Jeanne
