Blue Monday - Tulips & Teapot

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.)

I want to share some fresh tulips with you. I bought these at the Walmart for just $5.00 this week. Since March is here, and Easter is coming, I just had to get them. For Blue Monday, I have them displayed in this vignette.

Check out my book giveaways in my sidebar!

I need to get some signs of spring going around here. We're in the middle of a big snowstorm tonight. I'm so glad on days like this that I don't have to get up and shovel and go to work. I'll have tea and muffins and watch it come down!

Good morning Sally, Your tulips are absolutely beautiful! I almost picked some up this weekend my self. They certainly mean spring is right around the corner. Oh yes Spring! I can hardly wait! I hope you have a happy day :>)

Good morning Sally, I am loving your tulips. They look gorgeous in the vignette as well. Flowers have the power to make us smile. Love em.

I will be gone all day as we are going to Atlanta. Bill is getting new hearing aids and I will spend the day with my sister. I hope I am up to this. anyway I wonder if you could link me to Mr. Linky. I can't see him yet. I do not know why this happens to me so often. sigh.

Thanks Sally. see you later.

Good morning and Happy Blue Monday, Sally. I linked Jeanne in since she wasn't able.

Your vignette looks so nice with the fresh tulips. I am ready for spring. Of course, I know you don't have change of seasons there.

We have snow on the ground, and they have declared a severe weather day where I work. I will be home today - yeah!!!

Heidi Pocketbook said...

Love those tulips in the blue vase. I can hardly wait until the tulips in my yard are blooming.

Have a great Blue Monday☺

bj said...

Oh, the tulips are so pretty. I am going out today and hope I can get some just like them for my cottage. Nothing like a pretty bunch of flowers to add a special note to the day..\
hugs, bj

Tulips give people in the frozen tundra hope that spring WILL come again. My sympathies to those of you who are being snowed upon - AGAIN - this morning!

Beautiful pink tulips - just $5.00 - wow - bargain.
The blue is lovely too.
Happy Blue Monday.

Lisa~A Cottage To Me said...

I love tulips! It helps make Spring seem alittle closer doesn't it!

Morning, Most Smiling One! Oh, what gorgeous tulips - these are some of my favorite flowers. Our daughter was married in the month of June and she took after me and loved tulips so much. She wanted them for her bridal bouquet! Well, in the heat of Austin, Tx, in June, not too many tulips! But the lady at the florist ordered some and they were yellow and just so pretty! I love your little vignette.
Be a sweetie and I'm hooked up to the blue!
Shelia ;)

Knitty said...

Hmmmm, I wonder if Walmart around here has such a bargain? They sure are pretty.

Happy Blue Monday!

Linda said...

Can't wait for spring to get here. The tulips are beautiful and I also love your spider plant.

Thoughtfully Blended Hearts said...

Thanks for a "hint" of spring with your tulips. I love your "Blue Monday series".

Happy Blue Monday!

jlshall said...

Beautiful tulips, and such a pretty vase, too. Whenever I buy tulips, they always droop by the time I get them home.

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Love the tulips, Sally. We'll have tulips in our yard---one of these days! Can't wait 'til Spring.


sara said...

I love pink and blue together. That's a lovely vignette.

Darlene said...

Morning Sally,

Those tulips are gorgeous and I LOVE how you have them displayed. Have a great Monday!

Your right Sally when we lived in Vancouver, tulips were the sign. We used to go to La Conner, in Wash. State. They had acres upon acres of red, yellow, pink tulips. I will have to post a picture of them for Foto Friday.
You know it never dawned on me to do the blue post about a simple bread box. Not even sure why I stuck it in MET monday.
Sorry Sally.
I think I will be taking a break
Love Claudie
from all of this.

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Sally, love your vinette with the pink tulips. So pretty! I'm going to get some tulips from Wal-Mart too, they are just beautiful right now! Kristen

Killlashandra said...

I wish I could grow roses like that. ;) No, all my flower pictures are from the botanical gardens. My mom jokes I got the brown thumb out of the family. LOL

I also just realized my Monday picture includes blue in it this time.

Missy Wertz said...

Sally, those are beautiful tulips and I love the blue vase and blue and white teapot sitting next to it. Happy Blue Monday!

Such a beautiful bit of spring! Thanks for sharing and thanks for hosting Blue Monday!

Sally, why are your tulips perky and standing upright? My stems always curve and the the arrangement looks droopy. The flowers look fresh but the stems go "droop".

Carrie said...

It is so refreshing to see your lovely vignette with the lovely tulips!
