Blue Monday

Today I'm participating in Sally's Blue Monday

A friend and I went down East one day and stopped in at a shop where they carried all kinds of wares, including pottery and fabulous rocks! I love rocks so I will show you some of the blue ones today.

There was lots of blue pottery.
The rocks and gemstones were beautiful! There was quartz and marble and others that I couldn't identify. When I saw the blue, I couldn't help but think of Blue Monday.
Saturday we spent most of the day with our grandson Brent. It was his 6th birthday. Here he is all dressed in blue.
His parents had gotten him an Indiana Jones leggo set and there was a spider included in the kit. Here he is showing off the spider and wearing his blue Birthday Boy button.

Happy Blue Monday all! Have a wonderful day.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

  8. Hi Sandi
    Thank for your visit to my food blog:)
    Love those pots and Gems.
    Hey your sweet grandson has the same name as my hubby.He sure is a cutie...your grandson that is:)

  9. Brent is so handsome, Sandi! Just a doll. I can understand why you're proud of that cutie.

    I love not only the rocks you showed us today, but the neat pottery pieces, too. And how about that blue sink bowl with the fish! Neat.

    I was in the middle of posting to you this morning when our network crashed. I was so upset, but I went shopping to finish buying for someone who won a drawing on my blog a while back, and I found just what I needed. So all was not lost. It's just that I'm sorry I'm late. I like to be early when posting.

    So for the remainder of the day, I hope you have a very Happy Blue Monday, Sandi!

  10. What a handsome guy your grandson is! All the blues are wonderful, but I am partial to the gemstones. They fascinate me, how they look one way uncut and polished and so different afterward.

  11. Hi Sandi! Oh, first off, your little grand is adorable in his blue shirt.
    Love all of the pretty pottery and those rocks.
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  12. Hello Sandi; What a handsome little guy,, Happy Late Birthday Brent... hope you had a great day.. Love all the gorgeous blue pottery.... have a great week.


  13. Hello Sandi, I do love your blue today. The blue pottery is beautiful and the rocks very beautiful too. Where we live we have a museum that has amazing rocks and gems. I always admire them.

    Most of all your Brent is such a handsome little guy. He is loving his leggo spider. Happy birthday to Brent.

    Thank you for your visit today and for your sweet comment.
