Blue Monday - Five Year Blogiversary Celebration!

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

See what other Blue participants have to share by clicking on their photos. Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

Welcome to our special Fifth Blue Monday Blogiversary Party!

Woo Hoo! I'm so glad you've joined me! As promised, I'm celebrating with balloons, cake, and flowers.

I've slipped on this fantastic gown made from 15,000 metallic Blue balloons. I found it here.

Would you care for a piece of Blue velvet cake? Betty Crocker made this especially for Blue Monday. (Well, at least that's how I prefer to think.) The real recipe is found here.

I'll pour some tea for you in one of my Japanese tea cups. I first shared these Blue cups with you July 27, 2009.

Look at the beautiful Blue hydrangeas I gathered for you (from the internet).

Blue Monday would be nothing without YOU!

Blogland is filled with special people, and I've met a bunch I count as my friends.

Some of you have been with me from the first Blue Monday found here.

Thank you for visiting, commenting, and playing with me.

Happy Blue Monday!

Thank you, Sally, for being the gracious host of Blue Monday for 5 years. Your dedication speaks volumes.

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, I have to start out by saying Blue Monday would be nothing without you. BIG HAPPY SMILE HERE.Happy Blogiversary!!!

I love that gown. What an imagination someone had. It's funny because I tried to find your first post and wasn't successful. Now I know I have been there from the first post. Probably because I was in a rush. (as always) Imagine blue cake. The teacups are. beautiful.Just one of your many beautiful treasures.

Today is garden club day so I'm off to a potluck meeting in the park. Lets talk on Weds.

Love, Jeanne
