Blue Monday... from Sunday's window shopping...

Goodness! It's Monday already! Time for Blue Monday, hosted graciously by Miss Smiling Sally! To visit Sally, and other bloggers of her Blue Monday, link to Sally's blog here...


Sunday, Ricky and I went to an estate auction in San Marcos, Texas. After looking around a while, and being the losing bidder on a couple of items, I decided I would wander down the road a bit to The Village of Wimberly. There are lots of little shops there that I've never visited... so Sunday was my day for some window shopping.

The first little shop I went into had this pretty little blue robin, which reminded me of Sally's Blue Monday...


A few doors down, I found this cute little blue and white clock... and there it was again... a little birdie reminding me of Sally's Blue Monday...


But when I found these little blue sweethearts... I knew I had to get back home and change my Blue Monday post... because some things are just too kitchy not to share... Feeling a little blue, but in a very good way, down here in French Lique...

ANY WAY I FOUND DIXIE'S TO BE PRETTY SPECIAL LADIES.
I SURE LOVE THOSE TREASURES...THE ROBIN THE MOST. MY HUSBAND AND I LOVE THE BIRDS...MY PARENTS LOVE THE BIRDS....OUR GOLD FINCHES ARE LATE THIS YEAR.
HAVE A WONDERFUL MONDAY.

Ah, I knew you were a good person. I love Duke fans.

Christian Laettner was a favorite of ours, too. I also loved Shane Battier and Grant Hill. Each of them still does a lot for the Duke and Durham community.

I love that bluebird in the first picture. Seeing a bluebird always makes my day.

Ha, the blue robin is the best. I almost thought it was real, with it's head cocked the way it is.
