Blue Monday - Blue Jay

Hello. It's Blue Monday! I'm so glad you decided to join in the fun.

To participate: just click here for BLUE MONDAY INSTRUCTIONS or check out the instructions by clicking on the Blue Monday icons in my sidebar.

I l❤ve comments, so please remember to leave one for me.

One day, when Johnny and I were out and about, we stopped at Tuesday Morning. Look what beautiful blue flew into my hands! (Actually, I spotted him on a shelf and knew he had to come home with me. How could I resist?)

A Blue Jay! Of course I purchased him and brought him home. How could I resist?

He landed on my kitchen counter, right next to a vase with flowers!
Smart bird.

Happy Blue Monday!

Hello Sally - I've never seen a Blue Jay but we get other varieties here. Of course, you had to take the little fella home with you where else would he get such a good home? ;) Judith

eileeninmd said...

Sally, I love your Bluejay. I'm glad he found a place in your home. Happy Blue Monday!

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, I have been out of town for 4 days with my sister and just returned last night. We were on a buying trip again. A fun but tiring trip. We went as far as Ohio to a big antique sale.

You are right about your bird being smart. He came to a lovely home and will be admired the rest of his days. Smile.

Have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Jeanne

Good morning the little bluebird. According to my husband, blue jays can be a little ornery, while blue birds are sweet. Personally, I think they are both beautiful, and I get very excited when I see one in the yard.
♥, Susan

anne said...

It is indeed a very beautiful fella.

Did you check the bottom of this beautiful blue bird? I am sure your name is there since it MUST have been made just for you.

We have so many of these bluejays around they can be aggressive, However I love seeing the babies. Think I have a few photos of them.

Life on the Edge said...

It's been a while since I've done blog visits, but I'm getting better about posting and getting out there! Glad to see you're still doing your Blue Mondays. Love this little guy! I also like ceramic birds. This one looks like he could have been the inspiration for the bird on your Blue Monday tag!

I'm busy...still working, keeping house, and now I have a sweetheart! Yes, life is good.
