Blue Monday: Whoopee! I Have A Christmas Tree!

OOPS!!! Now you can see how bumfuzzled I've been! Forgive me! I know it's not Blue Monday!! I'm confused, I'm crazy, I'm an idiot! I need rest!! lol Just look at my tree - pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze and know I'm just thankful to have it up whether it's Saturday or Monday - I don't know the difference.

Being not such a sweetie,
Shelia ;(

Hello, and welcome to Blue Monday. This most Blue event is hosted by the Most Smiling One, Sally at . Go visit Sally and then you can visit other Blue Ones!

Now, this is a Blue Monday post you really can't see. But if you use your imagination just a bit you'll be able to see lots of Blue! ME!I was so Blue, believe me, not having our Christmas up and shining bright! Well, I would have been Blue and singing "I'll Have A Blue Christmas Without You" if we had not put it up! We've never put up our tree this late in the game, but I was not going to be Blue this year, so up it went!
Lights on!
Lights off! This reminds me of that thingy in the 80s. The Clapper - clap your little dainty hands and 'lights on'! Clap them a second time 'lights off'! Blueness is fading, can you see?
We're pretty traditional and I love angels on top of our tree looking after us all! She's certainly not Blue!
Here's a bit of blue in Mary's outfit. Would you call this a Blue outfit or a Blue dress?
Sweet little cherub - not a stitch of Blue!
Little cherub bums - still no Blue!
More from the cherub band - a slight touch of Blue on those little fluttering wings!
Glass angels and angel icicles. No Blue!

I spy Blue behind the cross!!
Quite a few little White House ornaments...
A bit of Blue...
More Blueness...
Blue precious stone in the drop ornament. See the poinsettia? No Blue.
Good ole state of Texas - Blue!! Yay!
Frosty pine Blue.
Little antique looking ornament - again, no Blue.
I have a mixture of ornaments on my tree don't I? Still, no Blue!
Yikes! He's a scary looking little thing! His uniform is Blue. He looks a little dangerous so maybe I had better put him somewhere else.

Well, now, aren't you glad you didn't have to see me all Blued out? I'm not blue, I'm happy today because - Whoopee! We have up our Christmas tree!!

Be a bunch of sweeties,


  1. You have so many beautiful ornaments! I love the crosses and the one of the holy family.
    are you aware that it's still Saturday?

  2. beautiful...even if it is BLUE MONDAY on a beautiful PINK SATURDAY!! LOL!! Love BOTH posts!!!

  3. oh, dear....i am wondering around all of Blogland in such a state of it saturday ? Pink Saturday? or am I so blue because I didn't post anything for BLUE MONDAY?? Help me, oh Queen of Silliness Sheila....tell me which way to Sat.ville or to Mondayville......

  4. Gorgeous tree! Your ornaments are wonderful - so special. Thanks for sharing them with us today. I love big trees but our little home doesn't have space. Just a small sweet house where our special tree looks right at home!

  5. lol Poor, poor darling. Her tree was not up, and she has clearly lost her mind. lol She THINKS it's Monday (when we all know it's only Saturday).
    Hmmm, maybe she's shufflin' off to Buffalo during the extended weekend.
    Whatever... (see how young I talk?) lol... Your tree is as expected: sophisticated, classic, gorgeous, delightful!

I know you are glowing with excitement that you finally have it up... Very elegant ornaments... Have a GREAT Saturday night... yes its Saturday.... Love Ya


  29. Ok, what are you trying to do here? I just had a serious panic attack! I thought I had somehow slept through Saturday and Sunday when I saw your "Blue Monday" title over on my blog list. Decided I'd better come over to see if it was you or me who had lost our mind! So glad I did, because your tree is gorgeous in that beautiful entryway. I love all of the ornaments you showed us. I'm glad it's not Monday, and I'm glad you are no longer blue. laurie

  30. You little ol' Texas coo-coo bird...I'm so happy you got to put up your gorgeous & well-dressed (not nekkid) tree! Nobody in Blogland deserves to celebrate Christmas more than you...You have been a gift to all of us all year long! Big hugs, ;-) Bo

  31. Sheila dear I don't care what day it is your tree is so beautiful on your brand new floor. Yea!!! We just can't have you being blue. No, no, no it just won't do, to have you feeling blue. I am so happy you are happy now. It's Christmas, you must be happy!!!

    Christmas love...Jeanne

  32. Oh Shelia...Such a beautiful tree on such a beautiful floor! Don't you just go into the foyer and stand and stare at them both? I know I would!...Debbie

  33. Sweet Shelia~ Your tree is stunning and filled with the most amazing little treasures. I'm so happy you have it up! That was the sweetest gift from Justine~ you deserve it my friend.

    We love you bubbles & all!

    Hugs~ J

  34. You almost make me feel like I'm caught up with my blog reading. I didn't think I'd make it here till Monday and I wouldn't have been late. Instead, it is Sunday, so I must be catching up. I need you to keep up with my time for me, then maybe I wouldn't stay so far behind.
    Everything looks wonderful. Glad you got it up.

  35. I'm new to your blog, found you through tiney (my cousin).
    Just wanted to tell you that your tree is BEAUTIFUL!!!. I really love the ornaments. Hope I can get mine to look 1/2 as nice next year (this years a bust already!).
    also, Just wanted to let you know they still sell the clapper, and I've been begging! my husband to get me one for my bedside lamp.

    -Clap on Clap off,

  36. What a beatiful tree with even more beautiful ornaments!

    I think I would have blamed blogger autopost for the wrong day post, lol. Like someone else said, we don't care if it was on the right day or not, we just want you to post!


  37. Love this, Shelady! So glad you got your tree up!!!
