A Sunny Blue Monday....

It's another Blue Monday with Sally of Smiling Sally. Be sure to stop by her blog and visit all of the other Blue Monday posts.
This is now my arrangement on the right side of my computer desk. I dropped by a blog, probably around August or September (I can't remember who it was), and they were selling some things they no longer needed. I really liked this picture and ended up buying it. It seems very soothing and happy to me. Also, these three little tin birds were at one of my favorite "browsing" shops and I thought they were darling so home they came. Our wireless router is also in the picture...I left it cause it was blue!

Hope you all are having a wonderful Monday!

Happy Blue Monday to you. On the radio this morning I heard that is officially the name of today - Blue Monday. Everyone is supposedly upset about broken resolutions, Christmas debt, etc that it's the sadest day of the year. Well....not here. It's a beautiful Monday.
Enjoy it.

Hi Darlene, sorry you haven't seen much of me. We have company, our daughter and her family. They are here to play in the snow and boy, do we have snow. They are skiing tomorrow if we aren't snowed in.

Cricket said...

Pretty blues and I also LOVE the bird pic you got from Home Goods. I have to travel a little over an hour to get to our nearest one. Ugh. It's probably a good thing it's not 5 minutes away, though.

Jill Scott said...

Ah, the wireless router. I wonder if that will become the 8-track tape of today's generation.
