Blue Monday - Blue Mural

Welcome to the place to show off your blues!

It's a good idea to show Blue Monday's icon--the blue jay. Many people place the Blue Monday button at the top of their post so that visitors can easily find their Blue Monday. For instructions, just click here.

I love to see the many ways blogland celebrates the color blue.


On a beautiful day with lovely blue skies, we took a drive. Look at the unique store that I discovered! It has an interesting, large mural of a beach scene painted along the front, with some beautiful blue water. I stopped the car to take some pictures for Blue Monday..

The name of the store is "Clothing for the Free Spirit." What kind of clothing might that be?

Hm, as I looked more closely, it seems the models sittting on the beach answer that question. I suppose the store sells only hats.
BTW, there's a nudist colony right next door! You think there's a connection?

Happy Blue Monday!

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

This is my very first Blue Monday, but with Jeanne's encouragement, I'm giving it a try! Thank you for letting me participate.


Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Hi Sally! This isn't MY first Blue Monday, but thanks for letting me participate too! VERY interesting mural! Jacqueline

Have a wonderful holiday!

Unknown said...

Happy Thanksgiving Sally...^^

Janet Marie said...

Hats. Scarves. Shoes. :) That might be the extent of their "clothing line". :)

Happy Blue Monday, Miss Sally.

Debra Kaye said...


While I do love a beautiful hat, I do love a cute bathing suit to go with it! tee hee

Happy Blue Monday

Sar@h said...

Naked ... but you still have a towel!
That's what I like blue ...

Happy blue monday … Here, it's a grey monday.

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, yep, I'm up late. Would you believe I was wrapping Christmas gifts already. Thanksgiving weekend we are visiting some family that I won't see at Christmas. I'm delivering their Christmas gifts to save mailing. That adds up to lot of dollars these days.

Your post gave me a big chuckle. I think the free spirit means exactly what you think. HA! Once we were invited to dinner by a couple that were actually my banking customers. It was a great meal and then they invited us to join their nudist colony. We laughed all the way home. That was the end of that. Not our life style, needless to say. It still makes me laugh.
Have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.
Love, Jeanne

Shahz said...

Hahahaha,, Hello Miss Sally.. That was so funny.. Hat for sale for those who have free spirit...:-)

Gypsea Nurse said...

nudist colony next to a hat store...uumm.. gives you something to ponder about huh? Happy Blue Monday!

Shahz said...

Thank you Miss Sally...:-)

Gypsea Nurse said...

Sally.. thanks for hosting another BLUe MONDAY!! have a great week!

Marie said...

Always amusing looking at your blue posts Sally.
Please have a great Thanksgiving.

Becky said...

Hi Sally, I went with the beach too. Yours gave me a smile. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Unknown said...

nyahaha you made me laugh Sally..I guess they are selling umbrella hahahaha.

Happy BM.

genny said...

hi Sally, here for another blue monday meme. cheers!

NatureFootstep said...

I wish it WAS the time for bathing suits. :)

NatureFootstep said...

thanks for telling me I forgot the link. One should not do too many things at the same time I guess. :)

aspiritofsimplicity said...

Hmm...I wouldn't think they would be in business for very long selling clothing to a nudist colony...

Susan Nowell @ My Place to Yours said...

LOL. Toooooo cute!

Anonymous said...

My first
but in a good way :-)

Freespirited is also good.

Donnie said...

That's so funny. Kind of an oxymoron selling clothing for nudists, isn't it. Happy Blue Monday Sally.

racheld said...

Thank you for the warm welcome, and for your visit to Lawn Tea!!

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

I was admiring that lovely beach painting...then, I realized what they meant by "free spirit"! I suppose the stores sells lots of suntan lotion along with the hats. Too funny!
Enjoy this Blue Monday!

CailinMarie said...

haha! That does seem funny - a clothing store advertising nude sun bathers. maybe they sell sunscreen and shoes along with hats?
Happy Blue Monday Sally.

Kathy said...

I would have loved to see your face as you realized the free spirits they were catering to :)
The beach scene is well done.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

LOL, you are a scream, Sally! To be honest, the woman in the photo looks like she might be nude were it not for those straps on her shoulders. ;-)

Happy Blue Monday! You just gave me something about which to smile...


Sheila :-)

Dhemz said...

Auntie E said...

LOL... What would they sell... Sunscreen for sure and maybe Umbrellas.

Elaine said...

Love the painted mural
I'd love th check the store out...but then maybe not. Ha
Happy Thanksgiving Sally

The Quintessential Magpie said...

LOL! Sally, I am falling out of my chair! I clicked on the picture, and NOW I can see. LOL! It doesn't help that I've had no sleep, but this, oh THIS was a real eye-opener for sure. LOL! I think this may be your most amusing Blue Monday post yet. And look how she has her hand on that guy's knee. LOL!

Oh... where on earth???


Sheila :-)
