Blue Monday - St. Patrick's Day and Twins!

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

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments.


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!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today is a good day to be Irish! I have some Irish blood in me, so I searched high and low to find some Blue for this special day of green. Maxine's hair is the right color! Is any part of you Irish? 




For some more Blue, I'll share these pictures taken this past week of "The Twins." (Both Johnny and I are twins.)

Here's a picture of me and my twin brother, Binky. His real name is Vincent, but the poor man has had to live all his life with that nickname! He put on a Blue shirt just for Blue Monday. That chair is a Blue print.



Here's my brother again with his wife, Rose. Notice the Blue couch and the Blue items on their coffee table.



Here's Johnny with his identical twin. Johnny has a Blue stripe in his shirt to go with his Blue pants, and Guy is wearing a Navy Blue suit and tie.



Do you have any twins in your family?

Happy Blue Monday!

It looks as though you've gotten the whole family hooked on blue! ;)

Gosh Sally I have missed everyone! Good to be here. I think that is so awesome that both you and Johnny are twins! Such fun! Always good to see what you are up to here! Happy Blue Monday! Hugs, Anne

Oh goodness, I forgot to add my cousins Marla and Darla were twins and it is a lie that twins skip a generation because my middle brother and his wife had twins, but they passed away at birth. It was during the 1970's and they did not have the technology they have today! My daughter Rebekah's beau is a twin with a sister just like him! LOL! My daughter Noelle has two friends with twins. Her friend Mary, from Ireland, said when the boys were born, their sister Kirsten was two and she could tell them apart by their cry! I always thought how amazing that was! Her friend Crystal has twin boys and when she was a lil girl she had brilliant red hair. Those boys are their mama's sons! Love that you are twins all around in your phamily.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day Sally! Johnny's twin does look almost exactly like him! How nice to go through life with a twin.

Karen said...

My red hair is from my Irish heritage, and we have 3 sets of twins in the family! Poor Vincent, that is such a handsome name, and then to be labelled with Binky!

Keep safe.

How special you both have a twin Sally. They all love blue I can see. Happy BM

Sarah said...

Sally, I'm married to a twin. Happy "Blue" St. Patrick's Day. As you can see, I mixed in a bit of blue with all my green to celebrate St. Pat.

Jim said...

Two blue.

jeannettestgermain said...

Always nice to see family pic! Hubby's uncles were identical twins, and my niece has two twin daughters.

Ileana said...


Nice family picture! :) I have twins! My daughters are twins, but not identical.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day, Sally!

Hazel Ceej said...

Binky does not sound bad to me. It's cute :) You all look great. The Irish lady reminds me of a tea room owner here in Bangkok. Her hair is blue, like seriously gorgeous blue!

Lina Gustina said...

Unique and great family. I don't know that you're twin, Sally.
John is also a twin, did you met him at a twin gathering? :D

We have no twins and Irish as well.
Wish you all great health.

No twins nor Irish blood over here!
Woke up to fresh snow covering all my beautiful blue spring flowers ...

Happy Blue Monday, Sally!

Fancy twin marrying twin. No twins at all in my family. I seem to have a lot of blue going on this week so I've made 2 entries - hope you don't mind. Happy Blue Monday and happy St Patricks Day.

Hannah said...

I don't know of any twins in our families. How great that must be. My sister married my husband's brother 12 years after we married, that is convenient since when we visit we get to see our siblings.

Clara / Rosewalk Cottage said...

Happy Saint Patrick's Day Sally! You look so nice with your twin. It must be nice.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Sally, I love the twin shots! AD I love that twins have on blue! LOL. Did you plan it?

Dropping by to wish you a Happy Saint Patrick's Day. I can't get my post up because I can't load the pictures. But I still wanted to wish you Top O The Mornin'!

No twins in our immediate family, but my first cousins' uncle and aunt have twin boys. I didn't know many twins for some reason. A friend of mine, though, had twin girls who weighed... eight pounds/five ounces and nine pounds/six ounces! My cousins' boy cousins were the biggest twins ever born in that hospital for years weighing something like ten pounds+ and twelve pounds+ each. Yikes!

Betsy Finn said...

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Finding green and blue, that's quite a trick :).

Nick Va said...

Great family photos, Sally. No twins in my family, except me who is a Gemini :-)
Happy St Pat's Day, some green and blue in my offering this week.

Denise @ secondtimearoundfinds said...

Happy St. Patrick's day.
You have some nice family photo's.

Alexa T said...

Lovely family photos! Have a happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Ann said...

Wow, both to be twins is special. We have one set of twins on my hubbys side and several sets on mine but not any in my generation. Always thought having twins would be so much fun.

Leovi said...

I love these family photos! Yes, I have a twin nephews!

LV said...

Sorry, I am late commenting, but had to help a neighbor out. As far as I know, there were no twins in our family. I think it is neat and especially when they have triplets etc. Each one made sure they had a touch blue.

sillarit said...

Last time I visited I did not see the comment selection, my mistake.

Blue in clothing is the new black once again. As for twins, my mother had a twin sister... so it runs in the family, but skipped my generation. Ritva

Erica (Irene) said...

Great Family photo's and great Blues.

Happy Blue Monday and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!

evao28269 said...

Happy Saint Patrick's Day, great family photos :)

Sonja Hoyt said...

I can't believe both you and your husband are twins! That must be really rare! My Dad was a twin, but so far it hasn't carried on with any one after them.

Wow, I always thought it would be so cool to be a twin or have a twin. You all look great! Happy St. Pat's Day!

miradordesign said...

I have Irish, Welsh and Scots roots which would explain the fair skin and strawberry blonde in my hair!

Have a good week Sally :-)

No, no twins in our family although we put a bit opf hope in genes as my mother-in-law had been a twin and we hoped it might occur again. I like your twin photos, and what fun it must
be sharing your similarities. Well done. I have two grandchildren whom I refer to as the twin cousins. Their names even rhyme, Jesse ( boy and Tessie( girl).They both resemble each other a bit and their behavious are similar at times. They are both very creative and independent
children. both top students in school. Blue Monday is an enticing stop of which I had not visited for a while. I shall try to stop by weekly. Thank you for hosting this lovely wekly meme.
