IT'S AN OOOH LA LA "BLEU MONDAY"


Hi! I am SO excited to be participating in my first "Blue Monday" today! Sally from smilingsally.blogspot.com was kind enough to start it. After viewing my blue monday item, please be sure to click on the blue monday bird to check out her website and other participating blogs! It's a fun way to start the week.

My husband took these pictures of the Eiffel tower a couple of months ago when he was there on business! It really is beautiful! Did you know they light it in blue? Happy "Bleu Monday"!

Wow! These pictures are gorgeous. I've never been to Paris but my son and daughter-in-law went there on their honeymoon. They were telling me how beautifully lit the tower was. I'll have to make sure they see these shots!

What fantastic photos. I was in Paris last year where I took a boat cruize at night where they lit up the eiffel tower all night long, but I don't remember seeing it blue.I love the background for your blog, it's pretty and easy to read. This is my first blue monday as well.

I was in Paris for New Year's when they changed the color back to brown...a lady next to us explained the eiffel tower was blue for six months for the people. Let me just tell you how hard it is to get a picture of it. Blue against a night sky....I really appreciate your husband's picture--he did a great job. I see your new, too. Enjoy blogging--you are off to great start!!!!!!!!!
