Blue Monday - Figurine

Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound has something called Pink Saturday. She had a terrific idea to feature something pink on her Saturday posts, and then she invited others to join her with their own pink items. I just participated for the first time this past Saturday, and it was fun.

My favorite color is blue, so I thought, "Why not have a Blue Monday?"

Every Monday, I'll have a blue post, and I'd like to invite you to participate. To participate all you need do is:

1. Post about something blue. It can be pretty, ugly, funny, old, or new as long as it's blue.

2. Drag the Blue Monday button from here and place it on your blog.

3. Return here and leave your name (it can be a first name or a code name), your URL (blog address) in the comment area.

4. Visit other blue participants by clicking on their links.

Sound like fun? Gather up your blue items and we'll play together.

This figurine is my contribution. I've had it forever, and I love the muted colors. The sweet faces of the boy and girl show their love. She's looking demure with her eyes cast down; he's cutting his eyes to the right, trying to get a peek at her while he hugs her. They both have a gentle smile.

I don't remember where or when I got it. It's about 3 inches and says, "Designer's Collection, Genuine Porcelain" on the bottom. The date listed is 1980, and it was made in Japan. I know it's not expensive, but that doesn't matter to me. I've loved it for a long time.

Hi Sally! Thanks for hosting this fun event-I thought I didn't have much blue but I find I have more than I think I did. Lovely figurine.

Morning, Dear Smiling One! Oh, that's a precious little figurine! Lve those little faces. Did you scroll on down on my blog to see I answered your tag game! Thank you so much for the well wishes. I do believe we're gonna be okay. I certainly hate New Orleans about to get hit again!!
Be a sweetie,

Your first Blue Monday has been great...I've looked at all the ones playing...the numbers will grow and grow. Beverly's Pink Sat. started out with just a few and now, several months later, there's close to 90 enteries. AMAZING ! and so much fun!
love, bj

Beverly said...

Happy day for your first Blue Monday. I know it will be a success - there are so many lovers of blue.

I'll search my home, and see if I can find something to post. We don't have much blue around here, but with this much "stuff" I will certainly find something.

Hi Sally,
I can see why you love your figurine. It is so sweet! I love the colors too. By the way, is that a new banner? I really like it. Perhaps I haven't noticed it before. Happy Monday!

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I am so excited about Blue Monday. I still have so much to learn about blogging. It was fun to have people visit me. Thanks again.

Grandma Faith said...

I just wanted to say that I finally figured out how to put the bluejay on my blog page. Better late than never. At least now I'm all set for next Monday. Thanks again.

That is the cutest, little darlingest figurine. I really like colours like that and his little eyes are so sweet.

I knew this would be a popular meme, and it's a holiday weekend, too! I just got mine posted; it's a little pitiful, but it will be better next week!
