Happy Blue Monday BJ! Love your rooster pictures but your Christmas Ornaments from the White House are awesome. I've never mentioned that I collect Eggs from the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. Perhaps I'll do a post about them around Easter.

Have a fabulous day!!!

Happy Blue Monday!

Awesome rooster pictures BJ.

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

The old couple is halarious !And how lucky you are to get those rooster pics

ann said...

NOW BJ.YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE ROOSTERS.AND YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW VERY GOOD THOSE WOULD LOOK IN MY DINING ROOM.IS THERE ANYWAY I COULD TALK YOU OUT OF EM?SERIOUSLY,THEY ARE A PURE TREASURE.JUST LOVELY..ANN

Smilingsal said...

The rooster pictures do belong in your room. Super friend you have!

You may remember that I grew up in DC. When I first saw the blue room at the white house, it was a disappointment because it's white, trimmed in blue, with other blue accents. The red room walls are covered with a rich, red satin material, and I expected the blue room to be the same. I do love the tree, though.

Happy Blue Monday!

Shelia said...

BJ! You naughty, naughty girl! LOL You know I'm laughing at the old couple sitting right up there on your post! I'm in love with your rooster pictures too! I'd almost arm wrestle you for them ;) We have a few of these White House Christmas ornaments too! My sister in law always sends us one! They are pretty, aren't they? Now you go and be a sweetie today,
shelia ;)

the voice of melody said...

What a beautiful tree that is in the White House. Each year, the team of decorators seem to outdo themselves.

Many sweet blessings!

Linda's Blue Gate said...

jeanne said...

Good morning BJ, love the fun post today. I especially love the roosters. Oh, I do love them. Three houses ago my breakfast room was all about roosters and hens. My favorite house and room ever. Somewhere there are photos. Someday maybe I will show them.

Love your music. I need to put some Christmas music on now!!!

Christmas love...Jeanne

Knitty said...

That couple cracked me up!

You've given me an idea for next Monday's post since I know an artist whose work is hanging on the tree in the blue room of the White House.

Happy Blue Monday to you!

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

BJ! Those roosters are fab! I really like those and I think they are perfect in "your" room.
I've never seen the White House ornaments before. I'll have to check out that site.
I wonder how long it takes to decorate such a magnificent tree.

ellen b said...

Hi bj!
I do love those roosters. (the joke at the top is pretty darn funny too!) Have a wonderful Blue Monday and week!

Neabear said...

That tree is gorgeous. Like Rechelle I wonder too how long it took. You were lucky to get those roosters. Happy Blue Monday!

niartist said...

bj, I love those rooster paintings. I had a friend once who collected rooster like things, and I got her a great rug for her kitchen that your paintings reminded me of! I wonder if she still has it? I recently posted my living room Christmas decor - I'd love to know what you think! :)

Sweetie said...

BJ, I love the rooster pictures and they look like they were made for your room. I love your borders. I asked Chris how she does borders. She told me about the program and also told me that you told her about it. Aren't Blogger friends wonderful. Happy Blue Monday.
Sweetie

jeanne said...

Hello again BJ, I did know we were Jeanne and Bill - Jeanie and Bill. In all the months we have know each other I have found many things that are alike about us. One thing that is amazingly the same is our description of our parents. We were so blessed to have parents that loved each other and gave their children the most wonderful childhood ever. Lucky us!!!

Love...Jeanne

Anonymous said...

Hi BJ, I'm soooo happy to see you still love roosters. It brought a smile to my face to see them and reminded me of our old rms days!

Each year I enjoy the television specials showing the White House Christmas decorations. Several years I've even recorded it and then shared it with my sister and brother-in-law.
