Hello and welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally!
I hope you all had a nice Christmas! Ours was wonderful, just a quiet day with our children and grandchildren. We were snowed in, but it was just a walk to Grandmother's house since my children have homes on our farm.
If you scroll down to my previous post you will see all the snow we had. Also some Christmas pics to share!

Today for my blue I have blue mitten sugar cookies that my Grandsons decorated on Christmas Eve. Pics are above! Feel free to click on pics to get a larger view!

Next I have some pretty blue faux cupcakes, ornamets and snowman that my daughter Jen made me for Christmas.
Thank you Jen, I love everything!
She also painted the pretty sea shells, which I will show on my next Pink Satuday post.

Faux mitten cookies!

Also I have my pretty blue Angel to share for Blue Monday.
Pretty tags on a trellis made by my blogging and PRH friends.

Gifts from my daughter found a nice home under my aqua blue tree in my bedroom!

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you. I wish you a Happy New Year! I'll be back on Wednesday with a Red Wednesday post. Something new I thought I like to join in on since I have so much red in my home.
Blessings, Shirl

Good Morning Shirl sweetie...
What beautiful cookies. I will only take one as they look so rich and yummy. Thank you. What a great job the grandsons did.

Love your blue gifts, the cupcakes look so yummy. Aren't they just beautiful? I love the items displayed under your aqua tree. Love the little skirt you have embroidered for it. So beautiful.

The snow pics you shared are just beautiful. How wonderful to have the family right there on the farm. You can always look after one another. That is so heart warming. I love it.

Have a beautiful Happy New year sweetie. It sure is coming fast. I really do not know where 2009 has gone. Thank you for the wonderful blogger memories.

Have a gorgeous day. Please stay warm, and keep feeding those deer. I know they rely on the food. What would they do without it?

Country hugs sweetie....Sherry

Shirl, that is the softest, yummiest blue tree EVER!! I love it. Jen's sweet treats and that soft blue/white snowman are so perfect for you! Such a pretty angel, too. I don't often see blue ones. Love the "tree skirt" you used!!
