Blue Monday - Giant Cupcake

Hello! It's Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Blue Monday Bloggers have the largest collection of blue finds.

Please visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Wish them a Happy Blue Monday and make their day!

I dragged (ahem) took Johnny to Hobby Lobby this week. I was on the lookout for things of Blue. Of course, we spotted something right inside the store. Look what we found!

There was a large display of ceramic cupcakes. They had a cookie jar, but although Johnny took a picture (using his cell phone) it somehow disappeared before we got home. {sigh} Nevertheless, he did manage to get a shot of this giant cupcake. It's really a huge 24" platter. There's Blue everywhere on the design. The bottom is striped Blue and some of the "candies" decorating the icing are Blue.

No, I did not buy the platter nor the cookie jar. If it suits your taste, I'm sure there's at least one left waiting for your purchase. But please tell me, how would you use it?

Happy Blue Monday!

Happy Blue Monday to you!

I was also at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago and saw this exact set. If I had not downsized my life I would have been tempted to purchase it.

It's pretty but if I had that, I don't know if I will be able to use it too. It would just probably be on display together with my other ceramics.

Happy Blue Monday Sally!

My Blue Monday.

LadyD Piano said...

Decor for a kid's b'day party, for sure! Just too delicate for my grandsons but a pretty blue. So glad you and Johnny went on the outing together!

I did see a lot of cupcake-styled things at HL a week or two ago. I thought it was cute but didn't need anything like it, and it would make me crave sugar more than I already do.

Wow, happy blue Monday Sally.

The French Hutch said...

Pretty blue in the cupcake Sally. Thanks for hosting.

Pretty huge cupcake. I just love seeing it, cause I don't like too sweet ones.

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, It was late last night and I didn't comment.

It made me smile to think of you and Johnny going to Holly Lobby to find blue. The first thing I think of when I am out and about is to find blue and pink. There isn't much to share that I haven't already posted about in my home.

The cup cake would make a grand platter to put cupcakes on for a BD party. However, I do not do that with our children spread out everywhere. I liked it though. We do not have a Hobby Lobby anywhere near where we live. sigh!

Wishing you happy sunny days my friend.
Love, Jeanne

This was a nice big platter, Sally. It would be perfect as a serving dish for a children's party. I bet the cookie jar was also pretty. Happy Blue Monday!

Leovi said...

Hi Carol Ann recommended that I look at your blog and go for blue Monday as I have so many blue things in my latest blog. We'll see if I can get it right as I have tried another blog and couldn't do the part showing my blog correctly....or something!! Anyway. Have a great weekend. Joan
