Blue Monday - Pilgrim Figurines

Hello! It's Blue Monday where we celebrate all things blue!

For instructions, just click here.

You may visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I bought these Thanksgiving pilgrim figurines several years ago, and I love bringing them out to display during November. This year, I've placed them on the entry table, just inside my front door.





The first thing I noticed (and loved) about them was the blue color.






I love the details. The lady is carrying a basket of fruit, and she has vegetables at her feet. The gentleman has a turkey in front of his feet.





Their hands are folded in prayer to remind us to be thankful.


Happy Blue Monday!

It's the last week of my book giveaways. See my sidebar if you're interested.

Sally, Your Pilgrim figurines are so lovely. I could see myself buying some just like these if I could find them! The detailing makes them so pretty but I think my favorite part is that their hands are folded in thanksgiving. How precious, and what a wonderful reminder every time you walk in your front door. :)

Beautiful. Love the hands showing they are grateful.

My pics are from my weekend at a wonderful place I visited for some rehab.

Happy Blue Monday to you and all others!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Sally, I love the fact, not only that they are blue, but that they are praying and giving thanks. I'm sure the early pilgrims would approve of this rendition of themselves. After all, we are to give thanks for His bountiful goodness and mercies without end. God is good!

Happy Blue Monday (I plan to hop back on the train soon. Company coming day after tomorrow, and I'm getting ready!)...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Lovely figurines! The plight of the pilgrims always brings me back to the days in grade school when we decorated our rooms with paper cutouts for Thanksgiving. I'm grateful for much, including those wonderful memories! Thank you for the reminder!

Hi Sally! This year has certainly flown by. Christmas decorations are popping up around in my area. I will wait until after Thanksgiving.

Lovely figurines for your entry. And a very pretty blue.

Dimple said...

Nice figurines! Interesting that they have so much blue since Thanksgiving seems usually to be brown, gold, orange, and black.
Thanks for hosting this meme!

My mother in law would freak over those. She loves the blue and white figurines.

Oh, your BLUE pilgrims are wonderful! I've never seen any like them, but I guarantee they won't stay long on the store shelf if I do! Just beautiful!

Beautiful Thanksgiving Pilgrams! This is my first Blue Monday. I love the color blue, too!!

Kits Chow said...

Hi Sally:

Hope this time it works with the link. I linked twice. I saw it up with the others and then it disappeared. I followed the instructions each time. I don't know if it is my computer or what. My post is now #46.

Also, I cannot leave comments on some blogs. I type a comment and click on the comment as Google account but when I try to Post Comment, nothing happens.

Any suggestions from you or other bloggers about how to fix the problem?
