Blue Monday - Isn't it too soon for Christmas?

Welcome! It's Blue Monday!

I sure hope everyone understands that this is a Monday only meme. In addition, your post must have Blue. It helps if you tell us about your Blue.

For complete instructions, just click here.

Be sure to visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!

I was in an Old Time Pottery store a couple of weeks ago and noticed that their shelves are loaded with Christmas stuff! Of course, I particularly noticed the Blue items and started snap, snapping away.

Here's a cute door mat.

Blue snow globes

Look at these Blue lighted houses.

There were many more Blue Christmas items to see, but a nice man asked me not to take pictures, so I stopped shooting. I suppose he thought I was a SPY(!) or something.

At the time, I hadn't even bought my Halloween candy! Isn't it too soon for Christmas?

Eden said...

Beautiful blues.

Happy Blue Monday!

CailinMarie said...

Happy Blue Monday Sally. I am one of those grouches who thinks the stores should wait until after Thanksgiving to fill the shelves with Christmas Cheer :) In the last few years its been even before Halloween and I'm always astonished. I suppose it must really make a difference in retail, else why would they do it?
It is cute though.

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Just saw the first Christmas commercial on TV- QVC...could not believe it has started already.

Donnie said...

I have really noticed that "Blue" might be the color this year. It's too early for me for them to putting out the Christmas items now. Hope you have a wonderful week.

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Not to be a killjoy, but I'm just not ready for Christmas yet. Give me a few weeks! :-)

Beverly said...

Happy Blue Monday, dear Sally. I hope each day finds you feeling better.

I agree that it is too early for Christmas, but it will be here before we know it.

Anonymous said...

I love blue Christmas items as I have a lot of blue in my family room. But I agree it is too early for them to be out!

black eyed susans kitchen said...

Hi Sally, This post made me laugh...I am not even ready to think about Christmas decorations...I was in Halloween mode all weekend. Have a wonderful week.

Dorincard said...

Hi, Sally! I love your image with these houses, that I would like to experiment with , using LEGO bricks (in a future life, I guess...)...:)

❀~Myrna~❀ said...

Wonderful blue Christmas Items !

Annesphamily said...

Happy Blue Monday! I love those blue shots! But I like Nordstorms policy "Let's celebrate one holiday at a time." They plan to put up their Christmas attire after Thanksgiving! Way to go!
Hugs Anne

Nanna said...

Happy BLue Monday Sally!lov the blues & the Christmas oh yea! it's not too early for Christmas LOL we just got in form Tenn & of course had to stop at Christmas Village! LOL

Ordinary Hiker said...

it's definitely too early to make me start worrying about Xmas. I haven't even thought about what to get people yet!

LV said...

Sally so glad you are feeling well enough to be out and about clicking blues. Yes, it is definitely too early for Christmas as far as I am concerned. They do not let us enjoy one holiday before they start on another.

April D said...

Happy BLUE MONDAY, Sally! It is NEVER too early for Christmas! I am just waiting (im)patiently for Halloween to go away...

You and my mom share a name! :)


Salmagundi said...

Glad to hear you are well enough to get out and about! Yes, I think it is too early for Christmas. Sally

Diann said...

Hi Sally! I can't believe that Christmas is only 2 months away. I wonder if I could find a "time slower downer" on Ebay! LOL Thank you for hosting and have a great day!

The French Hutch said...

Hi Sally, I'm so glad to know you're better and getting out now. Timing is perfect too, all the Christmas decorations are already on shelves here too. I'm so pleased for you. Love the sweet little door mat.
Hope you have a great week. Thanks for hosting Sally.

Leovi said...

I love these delightful penguins, beautiful blue.

Gypsea Nurse said...

Christmas? My my.. I need to get through Halloween, Thanksgiving and a move.. and may not even have any of my Christmas stuff since"the MAN" will not agree to pay for the transport of my belongings even though I have forfeited everything else.... sigh.. say a prayer...
Happy Blue Monday, I do love your pics though!!!

Visits With Mary said...

Goodness, seems I just got into granddaughter is already talking about Christmas music..
Have a great Blue Monday..

Cass @ That Old House said...

Yes, it IS too soon for Christmas. I cannot remember which store, but one of the big high end department stores has put out notice that it is not decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving, as it thinks that each holiday should be celebrated without another stepping on its toes.
What bliss!


peggy gatto said...

what a fun idea!!!
And of course we have elvis with his
Blue Christmas!!!!!!!!

Barbara F. said...

Hi Sally, I have to look harder to find some new blues to post!! Glad you are doing well. It is a little too soon for me to think about Christmas! :) xo

Louis la Vache said...

A Blue Doorway for Blue Monday.

Dorincard said...

Sally, along with your cool blue winter skies, I thought you'd love my second entry, the blue lake from Tibet.

joyh82 said...

Love that store and haven't been in awhile. Glad to hear you are out and about again!

Cassiopeia Rises said...

Oh, it's too soon for Christmas....


Deborah Kay at The Paint Splash said...

Thanks for coming by Sally. The flowers on the cake are closer to purple but hopefully that is close to blue. And then the one below is blue. I am amazed too at all the christmas out. Just too soon! It takes away from the specialness of the Holiday to me.

Gunsside said...

Just cute, but a little bit to early ;))

Unknown said...

I am late today, but better late than never! Thank goodness for blue.

dix said...

Happy Blue Monday! Thanks for hosting us,Sally! Great to see all those fun Christmas decorations...and in blue, too! Funny man who asked you not to take pics!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Hi, Sally... I am kind of glad some of the Christmas things are out because I got so tired last year, running around at the eleventh hour, that I'm sure that's how I got worn down and eventually got sick. So I'm trying to do things ahead of time this year.

Hope you're feeling better.

Love you...



La said...

Happy Blue Monday! I hope all is well with you.

My son loves penguins and blue is his favorite color. I think he would love these Christmas decorations.

Gayle said...

Ah. Christmas. I'm not even thinking Halloween yet. Yikes.

Day by Day said...

i love the Blue snow globes!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

If you ever, ever feel like it, I will set that table just for you, and we can read the book of your choice. I'm serious. You name the time, and I will do the food and table. It can even be, have table will travel!

Love you...



Anonymous said...
