A Blue Monday Blogiversary!

Wow! Blue Monday is five years old! Smiling Sally told us that she started her Blue Monday party on the first Monday in September, 2008 -- and we've been enjoying her fun linky ever since! Sally has been so sweet to host the Blue Monday linky each and every week.... for FIVE years!! I haven't participated for all of those years, but I sure have enjoyed it when I have!

So, I thought I would bring some blue to her party, and celebrate in style!

I invited these cute triplets to the party -- they are bringing balloons to help with the decorations.
I found them recently in a thrift store, just running around all by themselves....

This one is wearing her best Blue dress

and these two insisted on holding the balloons!

No party is complete without cake and ice cream....

Cupcake with Blue Icing and Sprinkles

Yummy Strawberry and Birthday Cake Ice Cream Cone

Here, Sally, let me get you a couple of scoops!

So, Sally, I hope you have a wonderful Blogiversary! And thanks for inviting me to your weekly Blue Monday parties!! It's been a blast!

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

PS - the triplets will appear in my shop after they calm down from partying, and the cupcake and ice cream cone were crocheted by yours truly. They have been sold but will eventually find their way back into my Magnolia Surprise shop!!

Oh yeah, and here's a link to the party!! Blue Monday at Smiling Sally's

  9. Oh so cute! A very lovely tribute to Sally and her dedication to Blue Monday! I love those ice cream cones! So sweet, the cupcake too. I have a friend who made cupcakes from recycled sweaters and they were so cute but she had brain surgery and her vision is no longer good enough to continue it! :-(
