Blue Monday - Animals by Andrea from The Purple Goat Lady

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. Mr. Linky will be up after midnight. 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.

4. Leave me a comment. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Make someone's day; leave a comment.


Bloggers are kindhearted people, but some are much more giving than others. Today, I have an example.

Generous Barbara from The Purple Goat Lady gave me these two beautiful blue and white animal ceramics made by Andrea by Sadek. I love them and have given them a place of honor in my home. See the darling custom note card she included in the background? How cute is that? She's the only person I know with official Blogger's note cards!

I'll admit that one of these looks a bit like me. Can you guess which one? Here's a close up of Piggy.

Here's Froggy.

Look at the lovely note she included!

"Give them a home" ... HA! Folks, I admit it; I was piggish ... I begged her for them! When I spotted these babies on Barbara's blog this day, I shamelessly pleaded. Now you know which one I look like.

"Oink, oink."

A BIG thank you to Big-hearted Barbara, The Purple Goat Lady.

Nice one! Well you have to ask or you never know what will happen and in this case you got them, good on you! MB

They are fey and lovely. Barbara knew they were going to the right home. I think the pig is my favorite. You don't often get to see beautiful pigs or, for that matter, frogs. Have a wonderful day.

Thank you Sally,

I did put a link to your blog, I came to this comment from my own blog, enjoy reading your blogs, especially love your blue lotus, is that real flowers? Pretty! I will add your logo and link on my side bar soon, I can't edit my layout since this month here in Singapore, not sure why...

Thank you and have a nice day.

Hi Sally,
I hope it isn't too late to join in your Blue Monday. I've been gone all day. I'm adding my Blue and White Tablescape, if you don't mind.

I love your sweet gifts! I think I favor the piggy over the frog! So cute!!
