First Time Blue Monday

I am participating in Blue Monday  for the first time today. I have this sweet blue bird I found at the Dollar Store. He decorated my counter for Easter and here he is.
I like to watch birds and we have seen many fat robins hanging around our yard. So many in fact that they have run off a sweet squirrel living in our crab apple tree in the front yard. Those robins are such bullies! I never knew! Come join Sally and everyone to participate in this Blue Monday meme.

What a darling bird, I so love birds but we don't get them in our area.

Sweetie, I would LOVE to see pictures of your home ... I can just imagine how beautifully you've decorated & what fun in doing so.

Hope you had a beautiful Easter celebration, Anne.

Hugs & love,

Love the blue bird! We have a beautiful Robin's nest at our front door. One little blue egg was on the ground this afternoon when I came home today. I was sad for that but it was empty. Anyways, I love birds too!

Your blue bird is cute! I never knew robins were bullies either.
Congrats to Nick - I'm impressed!

I don't get to the dollar store that often but when I do, I am always amazed at the sweet things I can find. Your bird is perfect. I wish I had the ability to bring birds into my yard, but we have a cat and he is a good hunter. No need to cause injury if I don't have too. One day I will be able to put out feeders and come one, come all, Char

I love blogging! I won Beautiful Dees giveaway! Woot Hoot! But all in all I feel like she does, winning isn't everything but meeting such incredible people is! Thank you all for supporting me and being such terrific friends. Anne

I wish we saw more robins around here. Most of our local birds are brown or black. The only color we see is the blue jays and they're pretty much bullies too!

sissie said...

Sweet Little Birdie. He needs a nest!
We have bluejays that are really mean. Hard to believe a bird can be mean, but they are!

What a great way to begin your first Blue Monday post. I love blue birds and this one is really pretty. Isn't it great to find such bargains at a dollar store.
Your a sweetheart for leaving me such kind comments about my daughter and my pain.
Yes people are scary and you never know what your dealing with especially when their on drugs which I have no doubt this idiot was. Found out today she is a stripper so I would imagine she does drugs but I know not all strippers do.
Thanks also for advertising my giveaway. Low entry so you have a good chance of winning. I wish you lots of luck.
Hope your having a good week
