Blue Monday - Blue Wannabe House

Hello! It's Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Your comments make me smile. Please remember to leave me one.

See what other Blue participants have to share by clicking on their photos. Make others happy when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

We live in a developing neighborhood that has several houses under construction. Recently, we discovered this "wannabe" blue house. Notice the different shades of blue in the sky.

It turns out that blue is the color of the material that is under the finished house color. You can still see a bit of blue peeking out at the bottom of the house.

The blue remains even after landscaping has been placed.

Here you see the finished product, and the last of the blue completely covered with stone.

Taken yesterday after the owners moved in.

A close-up of the stone embellishment.

What color is your home?

Happy Blue Monday!

You've really trained your eyes to see blue everywhere, haven't you? :)

I like the house. It's so cool in the eyes, simple.

That looks like a beautiful home, Sally! My house is a light yellow with brown trim. Happy Blue Monday!

My house is old (1880) and has bright paint. I have a dream, intense blue to paint it one day, as a tribute to Frida Kahlo...

Happy blue monday :-)

Unknown said...

funny, i like the blue shades better on the house ;-)

Thanks for hosting Sally. I did have blue this week, painted a bunch of frames turquoise blue.

Even though I don't like blue as a house colour, I think this house actually looked better in blue!

My house is red with a bright blue door!

Neesie said...

Happy Blue Monday Sally,
I wonder if the new occupants wonder who it is that keeps taking their photograph! ;D
My house is mainly granite so you could say it's grey...but when the sun shines it sparkles! :D
Have a great week and thanks for hosting.

Hi Sally! Love your blue skies as well! Thanks so much for hosting! I really appreciate the chance to show off my sister's art!

Nice to see the house building in evolution, Sally. My house is brown brick on the outside.
Thanks for hosting.

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, Another week flies by and my sister is doing very well. God's blessings abound.

The stone is a wonderful transition. In fact, the home is gorgeous. How lovely to see such a beautiful addition to your neighbor. I know the feeling of moving into a new home and it is a joy for sure.

My home is kind of beige siding with green accents. Very common in this part of the country. I think I would rather have a different color. An afterthought. Smile!

Happy Blue Monday my dear friend.

Interesting blue. We have a condo going up near us and they are using a bright green underneath which is so pretty it is too bad t hey will cover it up.
Great capture for a Blue Monday.

Annesphamily said...

Oh Sally this is sweet! My house is brownish red brick with a green trim! I have always loved blue and would like to change the trim. Happy Blue Monday! I was trying to help my hubby in the garage and came across a few of my Norman Rockwell prints. I know you shared Rockwell here last week and I immediately thought about you! Hugs Anne

Sally, great eye for seeing blue everywhere. Our home is clay-colored siding.

LV said...

The taste of builders and owners has changed so much over the years, you may actually see a house all blue outside. The way they build them around here, you can see just about anything. That looks like a very nice addition. said...

Must be nice to live somewhere where the sky is so nice and blue!

GranthamLynn said...

Lovely blues the sky is beautiful.
Love the house I could live there.
Interesting pics.
Did you meet and tell the new owners the house is famous?
Have a good week.

JLS Hall said...

Pretty house. I like the stone, but I like the blue, too! Our house is partial stone just like that, but I think the underneath material is just ordinary white. I think I would have been tempted to keep the house all blue!

Happy Blue Monday, Sally. And thanks so much for keeping this going!

CailinMarie said...

wow! quite a house. I live in a brick house, very popular in this part of Virginia

Karen said...

Gosh, I think anything blue just pops out at you! I would have never noticed that. That's a lovely home, and some nice blue skies as well.

Sue McPeak said...

Hi Sally...Looks like Blue is the up and coming look in your neighborhood. I'd say that was kind of unusual for a house, but that sky is gonna always be some shade of blue. Yay for new neighbors! Glad to be back for Blue Monday this week. Thanks for hosting.

Leovi said...

Yes, some nice pictures, beautiful design, I love the bright blue wall! Greetings!

Diann said...

Hi Sally, thank you for adding the picture. I have no idea what I did wrong. I tried three times to add the picture and it wouldn't work so, I figured my link just didn't even go through. I was going to try again later this afternoon. Thank you for hosting!

Lina Gustina said...

A beautiful home.
Our home was painted in different colors, but the exterior was light yellow.

Turn The Page said...

Well, what a cool blog! And I have just linked up for my FIRST BLUE MONDAY!!! Couldn't resist sharing my photo of some gorgeous BLUE SKY...and that reminds me of an Allman Brothers song...YOU'RE MY BLUE SKY, YOU'RE MY SUNNY DAY...

joyh82 said...

Turned out to be a great photo of a beautiful house. Love those columns in the front of it and the pretty blue sky. Happy Monday!

LadyD Piano said...

Very nice series of house blues! Mine is earth tan with terra cotta trim.

I preferred it in blue, I think. I looked at a new house yesterday and the kitchen cupboards were bright blue. Then i realised, that just like this house, it was just a protective cover! They were off-white underneath!

Maria said...

Hi Sally, sorry for not writing my comment right away... I was on the phone with the beau :)

First, your answer on what color is your house, I'd say it's dirty white... being in the city...

But my home in the province is peach and green :) I like the idea too of a blue house like this cause blue is always calming, as you see what I've written on my post.

All the best for the start of a new month! :)

Denise @ secondtimearoundfinds said...

Hi Sally, my broach is dark blue and... I have a blue Medalta tumbler in another picture. Thanks for hosting, always enjoy your Blue Monday.

Hi Maam Sally,
SOrry for not linking into your blog. It happened that my laptop is having trouble uploading photos.

I am not sure what is the problem. It says "SERVER REJECTED".

I am at my cousin's house after my dance lesson now and just borrowed her PC to link.

Thank you.

Your blue skies look lovely! We are into the rainy season so it's a lot of grey skies and rain here, with a blackout, thankfully short, last night. We find out quickly how much we are addicted to our electronic devices. My house is white with a brown roof, boring.

Judi said...

Happy Blue Monday Sally *hugs*
Wonderful blues in the skies for sure. The house is lovely too and so interesting to see the outside come together so Sally the next quest is to see if they will let you picture any blues inside..*s*... I really enjoy your blues.
have a good week..
Judi xo

Judi said...

I forgot to brick outside and the cottage is yellow...alas no blues..

Great Pics! Our home is a light beige color.

Hi Sally, Just came over from Loui's blog because I saw your comment about Ovarian Cancer and had to find out more about you. My sister lost her battle to it 8 yrs ago, after fighting it for 8 yrs. Great job conquering it. I'd love to hear more of your story. I haven't seen anything yet here on it but will keep looking.
Hugs, Noreen

Eva said...

great shots; our house is grayish and looks boring :)

Jeannie and Linda said...

Hi Sally, I don't know why I have such a hard time at your site, but I do. Didn't even realize that I posted a photo. Thank you for your help, and thank you for hosting.
