Blue Monday... Why Not!

OOPS! almost forgot my little Blue Monday Bluebird! Visit Smilin' Sally for more Blue Monday pics !
I don't have a lot of Blue, but what I have, I love... for example... I collect Lladro (thanks to eBay and a Lladro Outlet Store in San Marcos). They use the softest color of Blue on many of their pieces... My favorites... the Belgium Nun series... here are the two that I own... and of course, there's always room for more!

They remind me of Sally Field and "The Flying Nun" from 1960's TV. Hi Sister Bertrille! It's amazing you haven't changed a bit!

A Blue Monday, that's not so Blue, down here in sunny French Lique...

PS.. I hope you'll come back and join me for Wordless Wednesday. It begins this Wednesday, January 7, 2009. Click the link on my sidebar for instructions! See you Wordless Wednesday!(and yes... this is a shameless self-promotion for you to comeback and visit my blog...)

I love Lladro too, and these are two excellent examples of the soft colors and the beautiful detail work. Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

I don't usually care for Lladro, but I think those nuns are adorable. And I love all the outlets in San Marcos - we always stop in every time we're in Texas to visit family. My shot of bluebonnets in today's post was taken right around San Marcos, but many years ago. Have a great Blue Monday!

Ooo, I love LLadro too but with my youngest kids being two rather rambunctious boys, I've had to pass and tell myself~~"one day".
They truly are wonderful pieces.
Have a fantastic day and thanks for sharing!

I really like the Lladro nuns. Thanks for bringing back the memory of the Flying Nun. TV was so much fun during those long ago days. Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Dixie, I love Blue Monday! Just between you and me, your first comment was the runner up on Worth a Thousand Words Contest. And I did get your second comment, a reference from "So God Are You Listening." "Did the wise men have light bulbs over their heads?" Hilarious.

Lisa said...

They are lovely. I also was reminded of the Flying Nun.

jeanne said...

I have always admired the Lladro pieces. Your nuns are beautiful. They do make me think of Sally Field and the flying nun.

Hugs...Jeanne

Carrie said...

The nun figurines are lovely.
I also admire and enjoy Lladro. Wish I could afford more than the few pieces I have now.

Oh I love the Belgium nuns! The blue is so soft and beautiful! Thanks for appreciating my pig poem. Not many do...maybe it is a Southern thing! I love the name of your town! Happy Blue Monday!...Debbie

Well, when you get all set up for business, let me know and I'll be the first tourist! You just need some bumper stickers t-shirts and salt and pepper shakers..."I've been to French Lique, Texas." lol I like it! What do you think? Debbie

Dixie's Whimsey said...

LOL... on the salt and pepper.. some nice blue & white ones with the fancy S & P... oooolala! You'll get the first pair free of charge!

Heidi Pocketbook said...
