Blue Monday

Hello ~ It's Blue Monday again and I want to thank Sally for hosting this fun event. You can click on the bluejay button at the right on my sidebar or click this link to visit other blues today.

Today I have three 'blues' to share with you.
~ First up is this little blue hand painted birdie with a nest of three blue eggs. It is part of an Easter arrangement on my coffee table.

~ A Windmill thimble that came from Holland.
~ One of my many birdhouses. I love the crackle finish on this with the gingerbread trim; and as you can see, it has a blue roof with blue trim!
Well, those are my blues for this week. But before I go, I would like to thank you all for praying for my mother! She is still in the hospital waiting to have her surgery. They have the part all ready to put in but they are delaying the surgery until it is safe to operate. Her blood is still too thin. In the meantime, she is still in much pain from the broken hip. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. It really is helping! God bless you all! Have a Happy Blue Monday and a lovely day everyone.


  1. Oh, your poor mom. I am praying for her.

    I love your blues, especially that darling nest with the bird close by. Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

    Please put a link on your post so that others can find how to join in.

  2. The thimble is so sweet. I have to laugh about collectible thimbles - they are so pretty, but so obviously not for actual use as a thimble. Can you imagine trying to sew with some of those big, elaborate pieces on your finger? lol!

  3. Hi Sandi, I'll keep your mom in my prayers that everything will turn out smoothly.

    The blue thimble is cute along with your blue birdie stuff. I know for myself I have a lot of things pertaining to birds, even the decorative kind.

    Have a Nice Day-

  4. Your poor mom, that must be so hard for you all! I will pray for her this morning...

  13. Hi Sandi, I am so sorry you have this stress in your life with your lovely mother being so unwell. I had to smile when you said she would not like her pic put up because I know just what you mean (all the 'bad people' just sitting here waiting for the right pic of the next victim have heard it many times) but I will continue to pray for her and I know she will be fine.
    Thank you for your kind commments and I am just soooo excited about my parcel arriving..I will be watching out for sure. Marilyn xoxo

  26. I really like your blues. Thank your for visiting my blues. I read back a bit and found out about your mother. I hope she will be better soon. And good luck with the surgery too. I know that is tough. I work in Occupational therapy and work with many patients who have gone through hip surgery or total hip replacements. We help them to rehabilitate and to get back home again.

  27. Sandi, your mother remains in my prayers. I know this is a difficult time, my thoughts and prayers are with you, too.

    I love your blue Monday choices, blue is one of my favorite colors ~ your choices capture 'blue' perfectly! xo

  28. Oooo, I love little nest and bird.
    Happy belated Blue Monday and have a lovely week.
    My prayers and best wishes are with your mother and all those that love her. Blessings for you all.
