BLUE MONDAY!



Happy Blue Monday!

I had a fun weekend, I got a start on some of my Christmas projects.
I got my tree decorated,  as well as my fireplace mantle.
(That will appear in my next post.)
I am still searching for the snowman that I place on my front door.
I can't recall where I stashed it last year.  For some reason I did not return  it
to it's usual location with the other wreaths and front door decor.
It's probably residing with the cast iron "chocolate" bunny that I lugged 
around the MN State Fair for a whole entire day, or the Coach perfume that looks 
like a cute little orange Coach tag that I bought for my Mom's birthday last July.
Or maybe it's with the snowman throw pillow that I created out of  100's of buttons. 
Sheesh, you'd think I would have kept track of that, after all it took me about a
week to sew them all on.   Go figure.   
Well, before I forget I better remind you all to visit Sally @ Smiling Sally
to get the list of all of today's Blue Monday participants.

I'm hearing the dryer buzz,

Robyn

I like your cute blue birds. You sound as if you're all ready for Christmas now, except for the treasure hunt within your home. Happy Blue Monday!

Good morning Robyn. Your birds are precious. I love blue birds. I just scrolled down to your pink Sat. I love The St. Nicholas story. I too was a perfect little girl. LOL

Thanks for your visit on Saturday. I didn't get back to everyone. I tried but ran out of time. sigh.

Christmas hugs...Jeanne

Robyn,
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog to take a peak at the Christmas decor in the living room. I had a heck of a time putting it all together, but I'm pretty proud of it, and I'm super glad you liked it! :) I can't wait to see your mantle and tree - I know it's going to be beautiful!

Such cute blue birds. This must be the year for lost Christmas keepsakes. I "lost" a few things also. Happy Blue Monday.

Bridget said...

Me thinks there are a couple of good smelling snowmen with chocolate bunny on their breath hiding somewhere in your house. If you find them, check to see if they have my Banana Republic credit card!

onlymehere said...

I have some items that must be hiding with yours bz they're nowhere in this house! I hate that. The flood in the laundry room left my crawl space much more organized but I hope I didn't garage sale some of my treasures! That's about the only conclusion I'm coming to right now. Cindy

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

You made me feel so much better, or at least more sane! LOL! I lose things like that too! I found Christmas presents this summer stashed from 5-6 Christmas' ago! LOL! Cute post! ~Rhonda :)

Couldn't help but notice the ginger breads when I got here for Blue Monday. Ah, when you said snow and hot cocoa and gingerbread, I was envisioning such a beautiful time and was envious! We haven't had a good snowfall yet in New York.
