Blue Monday

Good morning everyone. I have hesitated for quite some time, to participate in Blue Monday because I don't have a lot of blue in my home. However, I do have a couple of blue rooms so I decided to take a look around. The more I looked, the more I found. So, here are a few of my blues for you today.

Hubby and I are into books in a big way! We have books all over the house. Almost in every room of the house, you will find books. Bibles, study books, dictionaries, novels, biographies, decorating books, ect, ect. However I have decided to limit pictures of books to this Devotional Bible for Couples and the stack of books that Hubby uses to study by. They are photographed on our navy 'blue' sofa in our den.
Yes, someone likes ice cream!
Some of you are going to wonder about me, but I have yet to put away my Christmas Village! It is still spread out along the ledge in our Family room, mainly because we like the soft glow of the mini lights. I plan to put it away this week. Honest!! One of the houses is 'blue,' so I decided to take a picture of it to show you. It has snow on the roof which I applied myself and you can see the sparkle from the light off the camera! Lastly, there is our provincial bird, the Blue Jay! {Sally, you'll like him!} I have this picture on my sidebar for interest's sake.
Well, there you have it! I'll see what I can come up with for next week. I probably have more 'blue' than I realize. Thank you Sally for hosting this fun event. Now go visit Sally and more 'Blue' folks by clicking on the link or the Blue Monday button on my sidebar. Have a nice day everyone!


  1. I have a blue sofa too! I'm so relieved to know I'm not weird. Well maybe I'm weird, but at least I'm not alone lol :)

  2. I also have a navy blue sofa in my family room. Why would that be weird? I think that you have plenty of blue; you just need to look around. You're right; I do love that sweet blue jay picture! Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

  3. Welcome to Blue Monday; I love meeting new people and seeing their homes. I have tons of books, too!

  4. That was a lovely display of blue!

    Happy Blue Monday!

  5. Hello, nice to "meet" you. :)
    I agree! Pretty display of blue! The bluejay is breathtaking, I think.
    I don't have much of any blue in my house. Let's see....yes I do. One room is painted blue and i've been working on another bedroom and that room will be painted blue as well.

  6. Two beautiful Blue Jays posted today. One was from AZ. and so very different than your picture. Your blue jays look like ours here in Ontario, Canada.
    Happy Blue Monday

    Happy Blue Monday

  8. I have a blue sofa too, but I am looking for a denim cottage style looking one like yours. Love your blog, do you remember where you got your sofa? Cindy

  9. I enjoyed your blues today and your pinks on Saturday !
    Thank you for sharing, have a great Monday, blessings.

  10. It makes me happy to read that you have lots of books stacked around. Good for you! I think I have the same books you showed of your husband's study books. We have books all over the place. Have a good day.

  11. Great blues! The bluejay photo is breathtaking!

  12. I love your little blue house it is so cute... and the blue bird photo is very pretty... have a great blue Monday;


  13. Hi Sandi,
    I love the picture of the bluejay.

  14. Loved your blue post, the spoon was really pretty, and I love books too! We had about 35 Bluejays on our hammock about a month ago, I knew that Spring was just around the corner, that made me happy and very, very hopeful!
