Blue Monday - Blue Heart

It's Blue Monday! To participate:

1. Post about something blue on your blog. It can be pretty, ugly, funny, old, or new as long as it's blue. Leave a link to this blog on your post.

2. Place the Blue Monday button on the top of your post so that people can easily spot it. Place another
Blue Monday button on the sidebar of your blog.

3. Return here and link in with Mr. Linky by leaving your name and the
Permalink to your post. To create a Permalink, click on your Blue Monday post title and copy all the stuff in the http window. It is a longer address so that people can find your post even later in the week--whenever they get a chance to visit. For those who just can't wait, Mr. Linky will be up after midnight!

Do NOT link in until after your post is up.

4. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Make someone's day; leave a comment.
I appreciate it when you take the time to leave a comment for me.

5. Check back later to make certain you visit all the Blue participants. (That's why the Permalink is so important.)

Since this week is Valentine's Day, I thought I'd try to find something that represents love in a beautiful blue. Look what I found! I love this.

Hi Sally! I'm off to work but wanted to stop by and add my link. Love your Blue Monday Valentine. I did mine on Valentine's too! Great minds think alike...ha!

What a fitting and pretty blue heart :)

Marie De Marco said...

Hi Sally,
The painting is great. I think someone else mentioned that it looked like an oil painting...that was my first thought too. The artist did a great job and so have you.

Mojo said...

Nice job! Understated and elegant.

Barbara said...

Hi Sally,
This is my first visit to your blog. It is great. I am not sure I can do this Blue Monday thing, but I will try to get on board later.

Happy Blue Monday.

Hi Sally. Thank you for hosting Blue Monday. This is my 1st time participating. I love your blog blog, and who says a heart has to be red. I love the blue twist on an otherwise red heart. :-)

The Raggedy Girl said...

Thanks for hosting Blue Monday so I can get to see all the pretty treasures out there. I love the heart painting because it is not in typical Valentine colors.

Sherrie said...

Hi Sally,
Beautiful Blue Heart! I don't have any hearts, but do have some photos of a vacation to Canada that we loved. Mine is posted. Have a great day!


jlshall said...

Can't believe it's nearly Valentine's Day! But I love that heart and that shade of blue. At first I thought it was needlepoint, but it makes a very pretty painting.

artis1111 said...

Lovely painting and it is a great shade of blue too. Kathy

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Marina Capano said...

Mamapippa ... said...

To answer your question on my blog, my blue monday photo is (I think, but I'm not sure ...)a sort of water-station under the ground, used by firefighters for example.

Cathy said...

That really is pretty, Sally.

Anonymous said...

Its so pretty!!
Your so good at finding lovely blue things!!!

Jill said...

LOve the blue heart! Some how you got removed from my side bar! I put you back! :)

Missy Wertz said...

That is pretty! I like it. It would look very pretty on a wall with or with out a frame.

When you get a chance, stop by my blog, I have something for you. But wait a few minutes, I am still writing the post....

Ruthie said...

I've never seen a blue valentine heart before. Perfect for your Blue Monday post. It's amazing how much blue there is to enjoy!

Andi said...

Hi Sally! I don't want to cause you problems with my blog being private. If you want to give my email address to anyone requesting to visit my blog, you're more than welcome to. I will send them an invite. I just promised my hubby to keep my blog set at private and since he's my number one guy I'll have to keep it that way. They can email me at with their email address and I will issue a personal invitation to stop by. Once they're on my list they can stop by anytime.

The only other solution I have is to participate in Blue Monday but not link in...which might be the best way to go.

nikkicrumpet said...

It's not everyday you see a blue heart....and I like it!

Please link me! Rita @

Picket said...

Happy Blue Monday Sally! I have never seen a blue heart but if anybody could find one it would be you my blue friend! lol Thanks for the support on my right to 'grow' fake greenery! lol I think they ought to pass a law making it one of the decorating requirements in a home! lol I just may have to go out and buy some more seeing as how I gave most of mine away along with my common sense! Have a great week girl!

Anne Fannie said...

Hi Sally
I couldn't find anything blue today to save myself! So I didn't join blue monday today :(
But I love your blue heart!
Love, Ann

Eleanor said...

A striking blue heart! Good for you to find something blue that should be red! Does that remark make sense??? Congrats on how Blue Monday has grown while I was away!

Mozi Esme said...

Very pretty heart! I LOVE Valentine's Day!

Your blue heart is perfect for blue Monday. :)

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

I am a first time visitor. I am not sure how to do this..but I will post something blue..just cuz.
I don't even know what "Mister Linky's Magical Widgets" is..but it sounds interesting. The word "Magical" interests me right off. I found you from Lynne's Gifts From the Heart. I am seriouisly getting addicted to her blog! :) Your's looks very interesting so I am going to just look around a bit. :) We have something in common. We were both married at 17 years old. Unfortunately..I lost my love when we had been married for 43 years.
I will never have a 50th.
Perhaps I will post some little blue cups and saucers I found in a store today..just to get my feetsies wet.
Have a wonderful Monday!
