Blue Monday

Welcome to Blue monday sponsored by Smiling Sally at smilingsally.blogspot.com. Hope everyone is well. Please visit all of the participants listed.
I love collecting anything faux if it looks like the real thing. Here is just one of the Macaw parrots that I have in my bathroom.

Don't you just love this frog?

I found this ceramic parrot at a yard sale for $3 but it did not look this good when I bought it. It was painted a pale green! So I painted it with my acrylic paints. Looks better, doesn't it?  It stands about 3 ft tall.

Happy Blue Monday!

The yard sale find looks great now that you've worked on him. Happy Blue Monday, Charlotte.

Pretty blue birds, Charlotte. The macaw does look real. I even like the blue frog....frogs in real life come in some amazing colors. Happy Blues~
