BLUE MONDAY - Vacation Print Collection

First if you have not yet left a comment to enter my 300th sure you Click on the Sidebar to take you to the post. I have added the final 2 items to the Giveaway....


I am joining Sally at SmilingSally for BLUE Monday today. Be sure to click and visit all the other BLUE Participants when you are finished visiting..

When we go away on vacation I enjoy picking up a little print from where we've been. I started the collection when we travelled to Hawaii but don't have a picture of it here to show you.

Last summer we went to SanFrancisco and drove down Hyde Park which is a very steep street that ends up down by the ocean. You can see Alkatraz straight ahead off the shore with pretty BLUE waters and skies.

Here are 2 photos I took of the same area, one from up higher.

You can see Alkatraz off the BLUE waters in this picture and BLUE skies. It was nice and sunny but only in the 60s and it was the end of July.

A month ago in South Beach Miami I took a picture of this little street where we ate in one of the restaurants and it has little shops also. There is a BLUE truck and skies in this picture.

Below you can see the print of the same location I found in a shop on the same street as the restaurant. Had I known I would be trying to copy the print I would have moved back a little bit when I took my picture.
We are going on vacation for 2 weeks in 2 weeks from today. I hope to find some prints for my collection and I'll tell you where we're going later....
I am getting excited but keep thinking about what lies ahead in these 2 weeks before we leave. This week will continue with being VERY busy with College startup and next week I'll be facilitating 3 hour Personality Dimensions workshops to 6 classes travelling between 2 campuses. I will be very happy to have these 2 weeks under my belt and Marc will feel the same way that a vacation is due. :o)

Have a wonderful BLUE Monday.. Judi xoxo

SF is my favorite city to visit, sugar. I just love going there after Thanksgiving to see all the decorations in Macys, Nordstroms and Saks Fifth Ave. and eating at the Westin Hotel.

Hi Judi, I love your pictures and paintings..I visited San Francisco a few years ago , when my husband was on a business trip.I was thrilled to see the cute rows of pretty painted houses all connected..

Your cat Abby is gorgeous... we once had a white Persian cat named Tiffany.She would get a weekly bath in our whirlpool tub by my husband and he would brush and blow dry her hair.She was used to this ever since she was a baby and never tried to escape from the tub.
Have a good night.. Baba
