Blue Monday



It is a very cold Blue Monday in Texas. Trust Sally and her Smiling Sally friends are warm and sunny today.





These are utility company boxes scattered around the area. I think it is a neat idea and adds color to an otherwise plain housing.

They also painted the utility boxes in our town as well as several building walls. It definitely makes the town more interesting to look at. I agree with you.

Hey, we don't have pretty utility boxes in my area of Colorado. That is just a lovely idea. Hope you are having a wonderful, though cold, Blue Monday.

Hello Meme, our town painted our trash holders in the downtown area. A lovely idea and enjoyed by all. Art like this is very special.

What a lovely idea! I guess it also helps deter graffiti artists too.
