It's Another Blue Monday


Today is Blue Monday hosted by Sally at Smiling Sally's Blog Sally loves the color Blue so she has us post pictures of blue items on our blog every Monday.

I have a collection of Carousel Horses. I noticed a few of them have blue on them!
As I was walking around looking for something else to take a picture of with blue, Alabaster the Bird was screaming at the top of his lungs..... Then the thought came to me, Hey he is a Blue and Gold Macaw Parrot and he has Blue so I took a picture of him.......I think he is wondering what is making that flash of light....
Then, this is the last photo I took of him before he ripped my camera from my hands and threw it on the floor................

Alabaster seems like quite the character! What beautiful coloring. I hope your camera survived well...
What a nice collection of carousel horses. Do you still add to them?

My mom had a collection of carousel horse music boxes that looked much like these. They were colored and ... "garnished?" with the birthstones for each month, and she had one for the birth months of all of her children and grandchildren. Fortunately, there were a lot of multiples in each of those months, so the collection didn't get out of hand!

Oh my gosh - that is so funny! Since you were able to post the photos, I'm assuming the camera survived its run-in with Alabaster! (who is a VERY handsome bird!!!) Your carousel horses are also beautiful!...Donna

What pretty carousel horses! I was going to ride the carousel at Disneyland, but then I was afraid I would not be able to get on the carousel, so we didn't go on that one. My knees were getting sore by that time. I hope your camera is okay. Silly bird, attacking your camera! Guess he didn't like that flash after all.

Farm Chick Paula said...

That's so funny, Ann... Hmmm.. a bird with an attitude? I wouldn't know anything about that. (chuckle*snort)
Your little carousel horses are gorgeous!

LOL!!! Fids are so funny! He looked all fuzzed up as well. That is what we call Her Majesty and Mrs. Crab when they disagree with something.

Love the horses and the platters behind them.

Knitty said...

He is a real Hollywood type, isn't he? First he wants the attention, then he wants to rip the camera away from the paparazzi. LOL!

What a naughty little guy he was to throw your camera on the floor. LOL. Hope it survived the crash. Like your little horses.

Julie said...

Wow! What a beautiful bird!

I made a carousel horse cross-stitch for my eldest when I was on bedrest during my pregnancy with her, so it just followed that I started collecting carousel horses for her. They're so beautiful and fun to collect.

Sweetie said...

I really like your unique carousel collection - but to be honest, Alabaster the Bird received most of my attention. He must be some character. Happy Blue Monday.

Anne, The carousel horses are darling. A fun thing to collect. But the parrot story and photos are a hoot. I hope your camera survived the shock. LOL.

Hugs...Jeanne
