Blue Monday - Married!

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

You may have noticed that last week there was a link that took you right back here to Smiling Sally. Frustrating, wasn't it? That happened because a blogger did NOT check her link. There was nothing that I could do to fix it because she did not leave me a comment! Therefore, I had no clue to her identity and could not locate her. {sigh} Please, please check your link.

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

Our firstborn granddaughter, Lauren Elise, was married this past Friday to her love, Christian.
What a special time we all had! Christian's favorite color is . . . you got it: Blue!

Lauren chose purple and Blue for their wedding colors.
The bride's attendants and family wore purple, and the groom's attendants and family wore Blue.

The wedding took place at Grace Family Church.
Our talented daughter-in-law, (Lauren's mother, Sharon) designed the setting.

Happy, Happy Blue Monday!

Blue Monday - Shopping for Fun

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

Please check your link to make certain it works correctly.

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

I promise to visit your post to see your blues. I'll leave a comment. I appreciate those who leave a comment for me.
You often make me smile!

We were shopping at Macy's and look at the beautiful Blues we found!
This serveware was labeled "Simply Designz, Parisian Blue."

I took Johnny's cell and snapped, snapped away so that I could show you.

Then, I came close to drooling when I spotted these Blue Waterford flutes.
I checked the price. Hang on to your hats . . . it is $160.00 for the pair!

No, I did not buy these beauties, but I sure did enjoy seeing them. Truth be told, I do not need the flutes.
I have these etched, Blue glasses at home, and they're quite a bit cheaper.

Decades ago, I got this set of eight for S&H green stamps. Remember those?
They came free when you bought groceries!

Do you like to just look when shopping?

Happy Blue Monday!

Blue Monday - Looking for Blue

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

After you've linked in, it's a good idea to check your link. I continue to find
defective links. (That prevents comments from coming your way.) Sometimes I can fix a defective link, and so I do. But on occasion, there is a defective link that cannot be fixed by me. If the Blogger has left a comment, I can notify that person, but (alas!) if no comment has been left--can you imagine THAT--I cannot notify the Blogger of the error. {sigh}

Click on each other's links and spread the joy by wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!

Johnny and I ate at a restaurant recently, and as usual, I was on the lookout for blue. Of course, I found a bit; Blue is everywhere!

Now, for a test. Look at the picture below. Do you see Blue?

How many Blues did you see? If you saw only one, look again.

Clearly, there are two Blues, just waiting to be seen and appreciated!
Some may see a third blue in the first shot. It's a reflective light on the back of the booth.

Happy Blue Monday!

Blue Monday - Blue Barber Shop

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

I'm struggling with the new Blogger format. Are you? Does anyone know where we can go for help?

The idea is to find an item of blue and post it. However, unless you're visiting other bloggers of blue, you're missing the fun.

Try it; you'll like it. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!

Remember when there was a barber shop on every other corner? That's where the men would go. I remember taking my young son for his first haircut. I miss seeing barber shops.

Johnny and I live in Lutz, a small town, north of Tampa.
We spotted this blue barber shop and stopped to snap some pictures.

Here's a closer shot. I love that striped pole.

The sign shows that this barber shop started in 1991. That doesn't seem so long ago.

Happy Blue Monday!
