Blue Monday - Snow In Florida!

It's Blue Monday!

Find out how to participate by clicking here.

Take some time to have a bit of fun by visiting other Blue participants and leaving comments; you'll be pleased how many will return the favor.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We've been decorating for Christmas, and it's been especially enjoyable as last year, we didn't do much. You see, we moved into our new home last December 17th; there wasn't much time to decorate for Christmas!

The only snow I see where I live is decorative, in other words, fake snow. I have a collection of snowmen--or snowpeople, and of course, there's a bit of our celebrated color Blue on each one I'm showing today.

I bought the Freeze Family several years ago when my daughter-in-law had a House of Lloyds Christmas Around the World party. It's become one of my favorite Christmas decorations.

Mrs. carries a small tree, Mr. holds a broom, and Jr. is dragging along his sled. Notice, please, the little guy is dressed in Blue.







Accumulating stuff is one advantage to aging. I've had this happy paper towel holder for several years. His stand is Blue as are his mittens and scarf.



There's even a Blue and white trim on his hat. No wonder he smiles!



Last year, I bought this happy guy just because he caught my fancy. Well, his price was right too! Note the Blue gift in his arms.




Happy Blue Monday!

Beautiful decorations Sally! I'm especially fond of snowmen. I remember last year how hectic it was for you moving into the house. I hope you have a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday this year. Your home looks so warm and inviting.

Your little snowpeople are just charming Miss Sally. As much as I hate the cold and snow I do adore my snowmen. They go out early and stay out until spring. Kinda nuts huh???
