Visiting other Blue Monday participants, is a big part of the fun.

We had a birthday recently, and I found a bit of blue.
See if you can spot the birthday blue.

A bucket of flowers with birthday wishes graced the table.
There is a bit of blue in some of the letters of the greeting.

Here's the cake before the candles.
It's a four-layered, caramel nut cake from Publix, and it was as good as it looks!
However, not a bit of blue.

Flowers, cake, and ice cream!

Just a bit of blue. makes a Happy, Happy Birthday!

Happy Blue Monday!

Do you know I have a present here with your name on it, and I didn't realize it was your birthday? I have had it here for quite some time, and I just wrapped it. I wish I had known you had one coming up as I would have popped it in the mail!

Hope you had the happiest birthday ever! And didn't Jane send you the most beautiful flowers! And that cake... YUM! Looks like you had a great time, and I'm so happy that you did!

Happy Blue Monday Birthday, dearest Sally!


Sheila... who is going off to bed and will visit everyone in the morning. We just got in from Cecelia's dance recital, and it's now midnight!

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage said...

My, oh my! That yummy looking cake doesn't have to have a speck of blue to be the best birthday cake I've seen in a long time!

I would like to invite you to join in on the fun for all three of my linky parties:


You can get the details here:

Each party runs for six days, so come on by!

Hope to see you there!
