Blue Monday - Mr. Pig and Miss Frog

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

With all of the Blogger changes, I no longer trust Blogger to work smoothly. Therefore, I have set Blue Monday to begin super early this week. I did this because I will be away from my computer. Blue Monday will not close until 11:20 PM EST.

Visit other Blue Monday participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!

This glass table sits right inside the front door. We have sidelight windows on both sides of our door, allowing the sunlight to stream through each morning; of course, this makes everything sparkle.

Some time ago, a generous blogger, Barbara, from The Purple Goat Lady, sent me these Blue and white figurines by Andrea of Sadek. I wrote about it here. Because I love Blue, I have especially enjoyed this pig and frog. They usually live inside my china cabinet, but when Easter was over, and the decorations put away, I needed something to perk up my front entrance. The Blue and white figurines volunteered to help!

Here's a close-up of Mr. Piggy. I think he's smiling. How do I know it's a "he"?
Well, we all know Miss Piggy looks a tad different; in addition, she only has Blue eyes.
This guy is Blue and white all over!

Thinking along those lines, here's a close-up of Miss Froggy. How do I know it's a "she"?
Have you ever seen Kermit looking even a tiny bit Blue? Of course not!

Happy Blue Monday!

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, I adore the pig and frog. I loved the Purple Goat Lady. I was sad when she stopped blogging.

Blogging friendships are such a bonus in our lives. You are a dear friend and I hope we can meet one day. Funny, because I have two blogging friends visiting me right now.

Happy Blue Monday Sally.
Love, Jeanne

Teresa Porter said...

Hi Sally, No, I didn't buy it because it is not my taste at all. I thought it was crazy cute with those pink ears.

I will tell Claudie hello. We are having a very nice visit.

Congratulations on your granddaughters graduation with honors. The problem with attending anything at U of F is you have to walk so far to everything. No wonder you were worn out.

Take care and get some rest.
xo, Jeanne
