Hi Sally,
just found your blue monday LOVE IT!!!

love all your blues.

Unknown said...

Hi Sally,
I'm back after a very busy time doing other things.
Bringing an older Blue Monday post up-to-date by showing how the same autumn scene looks in winter.
I am also showing blue-coloured jewellery that I may or may not list in my shops.
So I am killing two birds with one stone. All in blue!
Best wishes

Lindy said...

I guess I'd better pay better attention to the colors the next time I watch game shows. =D

Diann said...

Hi Sally!

I am thinking that maybe Merv Griffin's favorite color is blue! You should see if he wants to join "Blue Mondays"! :)

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

It's been awhile since I've joined, but I have something blue.

The Muse said...

blue is supposed to calm us right? wow imagine what those shows would be WITHOUT blue! :P lol

ellen b. said...

Those are all fun shows for sure. Happy blue Monday to you!!

Mary said...

Hi Sally, Please visit last weeks Blue Monday post on my blog, You will see a blue lamp and a couple of blue eyed cats. :O) Mary

LV said...

I have seen all those shows at one time or another. However, Wheel of Fortune is my very favorite. I have won on local contests that sponsor it.

Unknown said...

Hello again Sally,
Silly me. Now I think I understand what you mean by "permalink".
Here is what I probably should have used:
Sorry. I don't know if we can fix this. It will probably regret it if I try to change it.


Unknown said...

Oh look! I did it again (#14). I used the permalink this time. Maybe you can remove the first one (#4) that is not the permalink?

Irene said...

Hi Sally! I love all the blue .... Happy blue monday!

Barbara Jean said...

Thanks for hosting
have a super week!!


barara jean

Apron Senorita said...

Happy to join in again Sally. Have a great week!

Clara said...

Blue seems to be a color that comes across very well on TV. I go thru phases with game shows. I don't watch them on a regular basis. I like trivia games like Jeopardy. I really liked 1 vs 100, but it didn't last. Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader was a lot of fun, too.

Luna said...

Hallo Sally, I love all that blue!
Happy Blue Monday..Luna

Carolina Aviles said...

Hello Sally! I love the shows too and all that blue! thanks for hosting! happy Monday!...Carol

Becky K. said...

I did a double take on that first photo. Wow! Jim really looks like Drew!

I like game shows too. Everyone here thinks I should go win a lot of money on Wheel of Fortune. That's the only show that I am really good at.

Patti said...

Happy Blue Monday! The kids used to love Wheel Of Fortune when they were little and try to guess the words.

Maggie said...

Hi Sally,
I'm not a huge fan of games shows but it is surprising how much blue they use!!
Thanks for hosting Blue Monday.
~Maggie @ QCI

Debbiedoos said...

Great shots Sally!!~ I use to love the price is right, but since Bob left the show it was never the same to me....Happy Blue Monday, those are great!~ You will get a kick out of mine this week....

April said...

You know, I never have noticed that about game shows, Sally. You must be more perceptive than I am! Hope your Monday's a great one!

Unknown said...

That's cuz blue "shows well" on TV, which is fine with me cuz it's my favorite color!

Judi said...

Happy Blue Monday Sally
I enjoy those 3 games. I hadn't realized there was so much blue in them.
I don't watch too much on TV but occasionally I will watch Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune. I used to like to watch The Price is Right!
have a great day

Unknown said...

We also have Wheel of Fortune game here in the Philippines. is everywhere.

Happy Blue Monday Sally.

Mine is up now.

xinex said...

You are right, Sally. There is always blue everywhere. It is the most natural color and so pretty too..Christine

Gwendolen Elaine said...

Good Morning!Love me some Jeopardy,I have to say!This is my first blue Monday...well, I tried last week, but my McLinky was messing up :) so I'm back this week.This looks like fun, and I'm excited to join in!

Chubskulit Rose said...

I love game shows!

We love those shows, too. It's amazing that our kids like them as well. Happy Blue Monday.

bj said...

My mother watched all these game shows..I love them, too.
Happy Blue Monday.
xo bj

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally. I seldom watch game shows except Jeopardy. We like to guess the answers. One thing is for sure...we would never be fastest on the buzzer even if we do know the answer. HA! I didn't realize how many shows use blue for their background. Now I do!!! LOL.
Hugs, Jeanne
We have a white out snow storm going right now. We are snowed in again. This an unusual snow year here in the mountains. Also in many other parts of the country.sigh!

•°°• IcyBC •°°• said...

Great selection of blue..

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I don't watch too many game shows. Those are some very blue backgrounds.

EJ said...

Oh I like watching jeopardy Sally.

Carol said...

Have a happy week & come visit for my give-away!

Maria's Space said...

Happy Blue Monday everyone.

Momgen said...

I like game show and all of the game shows above are my favorite...happy blue Monday.

Denise Marie said...

Hi Sally, blue is everywhere. My boys always watch the Price is Right with their grandparents. I hope you like my new blog decor and I mentioned my give-away again. Blue Love, DeniseMarie

Ann said...

You certainly are observant. My favorite game show is Wheel of Fortune.
Happy Blue Monday.

Salmagundi said...

We watch Jeopardy almost every evening, but that's about it. Enjoy your Monday. Sally

jlshall said...

Those are really vibrant colors! And the blues are lovely. I haven't really watched any game shows since the 1970s! But sometimes I catch re-runs of the old shows on the Game Show Network.

Glo said...

Look's like Drew Carey has a twin!

I'm a huge Jeopardy fan so that blue caught my eye right away!

Happy Blue Monday!

Unknown said...

I'm not a regular viewer, but I really like Jeopardy. Sometimes Millionaire, but that show is very slow.

Anonymous said...

How funny, that guy in the first picture looks just like Drew Carey!
Happy Blue Monday~

Dimple said...

We like Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? but don't watch very much TV. The shift to digital left us without two of the three major broadcast networks here, and we are unwilling to pay for cable or satellite...
So I blog instead!

Beansieleigh said...

Hi Sally! LOVE Jeopardy!! Not to say that I am GOOD at playing it, though.. I just love WATCHING it, and when I occasionally guess an answer correctly, I am just SO-ooo impressed with myself! (0; Happy Blue Monday! ~tina

Mary Bergfeld said...

How very clever. You're looking for blue in all the right places :-). I never would have thought of this. I hope you have a wonderful Blue Monday.Blessings...Mary

Lindsay-ann said...

I watch Deal or No Deal. That's the only one really. We do not have jeopardy in England but I have heard of the other two.
Happy Blue Monday.

maria said...

Wheel of Fortune is my favorite. Happy Blue Monday!


annies home said...

Carrie said...

I enjoy trivia games of all sorts,and sometimes get to see Jeopardy.

Marice said...

♥ Kathy said...

Those are my favorite game shows Sally! Happy Blue Monday ♥

Candy said...

What is...YES! for $500
And what great shades of blue they are.
Can I have a T for Thank You?

Diane at Crafty Passions said...

Happy Blue Day !

Baba said...

Good afternoon, Your blues in the game backgrounds are great shades of blue.I finally got my Blue Monday posted.. hugs, Baba

❀~Myrna~❀ said...

I love Jeopardy! I suppose blue is pleasant to look at .
Happy Blue Monday !

Darlene said...

Blue must be a calming color for the contestants since so many game shows use it.

Hope you are having a great Monday. Our snow didn't stick at all yesterday, just a light dusting then it was gone. It is wickedly cold though here today!

Teresa C said...

Makes the shows so fun to look at! Lovely blue Monday.

Anonymous said...

Happy Blue Monday - will have to look at the background of TV games :)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Sally, I've never thought about blue backgrounds on TV... hmmmm. I used to watch various shows, but I just don't watch TV any more. Years ago, I watched "Password". I wonder if that's still on. I also liked "What's My Line?"


Sheila :-)

joyh82 said...

Happy Blue Monday! I love Price is Right with Drew..

Eden said...

Love the game Wheel of Fortune but unfortunately it is not on here anymore.

Thanks for the visit. I am linked with Mr Linky and I am in no 14..

have a nice day

lifeshighway said...

Hey Sally, just found out about your blue Monday and this is my first time. Thanks for letting me play.

Bargain Decorating with Laurie said...

I haven't ever noticed that. That's very interesting. I guess everyone loves blue as much as you do! laurie

Tardevil said...

Hi, just came by to thank you for visiting my blog! Love your blue background! Wish I were in Tampa now. Winter couldn't end soon enough for me!

Unknown said...

for some reason Mr. Linky wasn't loading up for me so here's my link:

I LOVE Jeopardy, my favorite game show. As a kid I used to watch Family Feud until they changed the MC guy then it just wasn't the same.

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

How very creative your blues are in your blue Monday. Who would think to look in the game shows for blue, except you!

I pray you are well and smilin' dear Sally. God bless and have a glorious day!!!

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, thinking of you today. Just stopped by to say hello and have a happy day.
Hugs, Jeanne

Betsy Banks Adams said...

I don't watch many game shows these days --but I used to years ago. I never thought about there being so much BLUE around them... Hmmmmm--wonder why???
