  1. I have read so many wonderful tributes to Sally. Many will miss her. I had not known about Blue Monday or Sally until I started seeing these tributes popping up in the blog world.

  2. I used to post on Blue Monday but found I couldn't really find that many blue flowers and didn't want to just find blue objects. I'm sorry to hear she has passed on but I'm also rejoicing with her since Heaven is a wonderful place! Thanks for the news. I love your lovely carpet of tulips and ground covers in amazing colors, so pretty, Nora. Thanks for your comment on my blog, I like to add people to my sidebar instead of following since then their latest post pops up and I can click on it.

    1. Yes blue flowers are a challenge! But she loved everything blue! It was a fun linky. Oh I will check out your sidebar and see if I can find some more blogs to link to.

    1. Thanks Margaret. There is a decision to make. Do I put it on my blog? I could not just continue and ignore the effort she has put into blogging. I believe she was in hospice for a while but did not want to tell us. I just don't want these bloggers to leave us without some recognition and validation.

    1. I really loved her Blue Monday link up also and I am not sure it will continue.

  9. I can't seem to do color challenges, so I didn't really know Smiling Sally, but I think everybody else I 'know' in blogland did. She was obviously a lovely person and your picture is a beautiful tribute. I was so sad about EG, so I know what you are going through.

  10. I came to your blog to thank you for visiting mine and leaving a nice compliment. Then I clicked over to Smiling Sally's post and immediately came to tears. How gracious she was! I believe I'll follow the new Blue Monday posts. (I'm happy you have chosen to follow my blog; I hope it is worth your time.)
