Hello and Happy Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally. If you go to her blog you can get a list of all the other participants.
Today I have a pretty "hint of blue butter cream frosted coconut cake", a blue vase and a vintage embroidered table runner.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope to be able to visit some blogs this week. I've been having wireless problems with my computer. It seems it works when it feels like it. LOL I usually bring my computer on the porch or in the kitchen and look at blogs in between housekeeping and gardening so I really miss it when the wireless does not work.
I hope you have a wonderful week!
Bless you, Shirl

Gorgeous cake...mile high cake!!! And you have all those blues in there!!

Shirl, I wanted to ask you a question on climbing roses. I have long wall about 3 feet high. If I were to plant climbers, would they spread out or go over the wall? Do yhey need to be trained in any way?

I so appreciate your advice! :-)

Hello Shirley,

Love your pretty blues and the cake looks delicious. I love coconut and hubby does not so we don't have coconut cake often. I always get a serious case of jadite envy when I look at your pictures. Your home is lovely and I love looking at your pictures. Hope your wireless will work for you this week! Blessings to you! Mary
