Blue Monday - Christmas Decor with Music ♬

Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

I really appreciate those who take the time to leave a comment for me. I visit everyone who links in, and I always leave a comment. However, lately, there is one blogger whose blog would not allow me to leave a comment. Since she failed to leave a comment for me, I had no other way to "speak" to her. Some of you have written to let me know that certain blogs make commenting difficult/impossible.

Some busy folks come back the following day or later in the week. This works well.

See what other Blue participants have to share by clicking on their photos. Be sure to wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We've been decorating for Christmas. Here's a shot of our Family Room media table. To the left of the TV, you'll see three snowmen. This is the only kind of snow I like to see. We have faux poinsettia flowers lined up in front of the TV, which is tuned to an all Christmas music channel, "The Sounds of the Season." A small, wooden tree hangs from the knobs in the center of the media table. The white letters spell "JOY." When I listen to Christmas music, I seem to always smile. Don't you?



Blue is seen in this group of Byers carolers whose heads are thrown back as they sing along. This collection is extra special to me as Jane has given me all of the pieces. The details on each figure are so intricate. (I love the two singing dachshunds!)



Here's a shot of our Living Room coffee table. The nativity scene is one from my collection. Of course, you'll spot the Blue on Mary and Jesus. Another example of Blue decor is the cloche filled with silver painted pine cones and small, Blue Christmas ornaments. I painted the pine cones last year and saved them to repeat this look.


Have a Very Merry Christmas!

Happy Blue Monday!

I've also run into blogs where I can't figure out how to leave comments, usually those that require a Google+ account.
