Although blue is my favorite color, I will admit that sometimes a blue just doesn't work. The other day we were driving along, searching for things blue.

We noticed this beautiful, blue sky.

Then I spotted this freshly painted house. I had Johnny pull the car over, and I took these pictures to share with you.



I've never before seen a combination of colors like this on a house.
It must have taken hours and hours to paint the individual bricks.





What WERE they thinking?

Ah well, to each his own.



Happy Blue Monday!

xinex said...

Wow! That sure was a lot of work....Christine

RobinfromCA said...

I have to say that the house makes me a little dizzy just looking at it. Definitely must have been a labor of love for them though.
Have a lovely week,
Robin

Perhaps the owner needs to go out more..... although perhaps not. He/she provided you with a wonderful photo opportunity.
Happy multi-coloured Blue Monday to you!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

That house's color scheme is certainly is a conversation starter...lol!

Happy Blue Monday, Sally!

Cafe au lait said...

It's a lot of work but it turned out pretty well. I like it. I played too. Mine are here and here.

Jesh St Germain said...

If they wanted their wall that way, my guess is that they didn't mind to do the work:) Happy Monday:)

Luna Miranda said...

this is a pretty busy wall, and it doesn't look so bad--retro.:p reminds me of the houses in my childhood--bungalows in the 60's and 70's.

Sue McPeak said...

Hi Sally...I'm Baaaack...after a busy month of April with the AtoZ Challenge. I've missed Ya'll here on Blue Monday.

Wow..to each his own is right! Here's my guess....left over paint from multiple projects. Waste Not Want Not. LOL!!!

LV said...

It is certainly an eye catcher and nice conversation piece. I did not have time to do s better blog due to circumstances out of my control. I am okay tho.

Gillena Cox said...

tiles, Wow; nice; Have a Happy Monday

much love...

LadyD Piano said...

Thanks for hosting, Sally. I always look forward to this fun meme!

Rhonda H said...

Oh my! That is quite the brick coloring job! Well at least they can't claim they couldn't find their house LOL! I wonder if they wear argyle socks?

barbarah said...

I've seen buildings that were all blue brick, and they looked nice, though a little old-fashioned. But that combination is jarring to the eyes, at least to mine. I wonder if the owners ended up liking it or wishing they hadn't done it.

Sally, I've got trouble in linking. I've tried twice, but I always face network error page when I'm trying to enter the thumbnail.

Great find, Sally. Very unique house!

kitty said...

Hi Sally, Michele from Finch Rest sent me here. I'm a new follower :) Thanks for hosting and have a happy week!

dix said...

Hello Sally: Funny house,,but I have a feeling an artist lives there who was not happy with the color of the brick and decided to paint them rather than move! I had a friend who once tried it...to no avail!! Her DH saw her project and freaked out! Thanks for hosting us! Happy Blue Monday~ dix---

Gerald (SK14) said...

unusual brickwork but I rather like it myself.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

WOW. That, um is very unique.

Thanks for hosting. Have a wonderful week, Sally!

Leovi said...

Wonderful color compositions, interesting!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Sally, I have truly never seen anything like that before! WOW! That is really something. Do you think they might have painted the bricks before they put them on the house? Or do you thnk they just took hours and hours to paint them individually? I have never seen anything like it. Glad you got this shot.

Hope all is well there. i was going to particpate in Blue Monday today, but I have to leave later to go out of town and wan't have internet access to visit. So I am bummed out because I had somethng cute and blue to share. I hope I can get up to speed wth posting in the next month or so.

XO,

Sheila

Schotzy said...

Jeannie and Linda said...

Sally, I can't figure out how to enter a post for Blue Monday! Help!

Lina Gustina said...

Sally, thanks for fixing my link here.
You're the best :D

Schotzy said...

Thanks for trying to fix it but I wonder if it can be
I still dont see it... I wonder what my trouble is!

Sarah ~ Magnolias Attic said...

I've seen some houses painted wild colors, but never anything like that! It makes your eyes go all funny.

Susan Nowell @ My Place to Yours said...

Yikes! I'm with you. What WERE they thinking? To each his own, I suppose, but I'm sure glad they're not my neighbors. :-)

Riet said...

Hi Sally, they painted all those block. My goodness I thought the St. Ons weer just that color. Happy blue Monday and have a Nice week Sally.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

SALLY!!!

I am not sure what happened but the wrong url linky is attached to my link up for your party- no clue why it is showing an old post from last month that isn't even BLUE!!!

Anyway to fix that for me? This is embarassing!

I was all about promoting blue today, and there isn't any blue with that linky. Please advise!

I HATE THE INTERNET SOMETIMES!!!

Hugs.

Tondeleya Allen said...

Love how they painted that house. Looks very HGTVish. Have a great week Sally :)

Botanic Bleu said...

Hi, Sally, I'm with you, "what were they thinking" when they painted the individual bricks?

Judith

Botanic Bleu said...

Hi, Sally, I linked two posts this wee. My life is so full of blue I could link blue every day of the week. :)

❀~Myrna~❀ said...

That was a lot of work! They must like it,it looks sorta mind blowing,I couldn't look at it very long. lol

Blondie's Journal said...

I bet this was a big project...it reminds me of a back splash in a kitchen or tile in shower...very colorful!

Thanks always for stopping by. I'm really happy with the outfit I found, the dress is a "Maxi Dress" and I worried it would be too long since I am only 5'2, but it fits perfect and it's very forgiving! ;-) I may just wear it all summer!

XO,
Jane

Sally, Pink Floyd would love this house. Have a great week.

bj said...

wow, that is, by far, the ugliest house I've ever seen.:(

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, We have been on the go all day and I didn't want to miss Dancing with the Stars. However, I won't miss visiting you if I can help it. Smile.
The house colors on the bricks is so not to my liking. To each his own!!! They are marching to a different drummer. HA!

Thank you so much for the sweetest comments last week and this...about our anniversary celebration. We did have a great time and have wonderful memories to treasure. Your comments definitely made us Smile real BIG. We are so blessed with loving family and friends. That includes you and it means so much to us both.

Thank you, with love,
Jeanne and Bill

I love the color coordination of the tiles :)

Thank you for hosting Blue Monday. Wish you a great week!

Bi Ti said...


I love the blue tiles, very cool! Thank you for the party :)

Blondie's Journal said...

What an exciting day! Congratulations to the graduate! You must be so proud. Your daughter has such a beautiful family and I love the children's names! I think it's really nice that they had a big screen in the auditorium...how long did it take for that idea to come to mind?!

You look wonderful, Sally! I'm so sorry to hear you have to have a hip replacement. My mom had one when she was in her sixties and made an excellent recovery. I hope for the same with you.

Thanks so much for coming by, your compliments made me blush! And Emily really was a gorgeous bride!

Have a wonderful week!

XO,
Jane
