Blue Monday 1/12



It's that time again!
It's time to get your blue on!

Who is Pepe after now?
Come to me, my little melon-baby collie!"
"my sweet peanut of brittle"
"Ah, my little darling, it is love at first sight, is it not, no?"
It's Penelope Pussycat!

Le mew? Le purrrrrrr
...

On a Valentine's day long ago, my hubbs, knowing my love for Pepe Le Pew, gifted me with this cute coffee mug.

*I know it's a bit hard to tell but the background of the cup is actually blue. No matter how hard I tried to get a good shot, I just couldn't do it. Darn flash!

Rechelle, Pepe is SO cute! I always liked him, and I always wanted the little kitty he chased to love him. LOL! Thanks for sharing this.

Happy Blue Monday...

Hi Rechelle, your post for today made me laugh!! My grands called my husband " Pepe" for many years.. not because of this cat, but because he would walk the dog outside and would say "lets go Pepe...so his name became Pepe... thanks for sharing.

Oh I love that cartoon....he really tries his best to pitch woo doesn't he. Too cute!

Aww, what a sweet mug and interesting story behind it.

I recently learned that my camera has a setting for museum, which keeps the flash off and the close ups show up better. If you look at the close-up picture I posted for Blue Monday, I used that setting since the regular setting "whited it out". HTH.

Happy Blue Monday :-)

I see the blue! I have a hard time with my camera too. That's a darling cup; I always giggle with Pepe Le Pew, chasing the poor cat. Happy Blue Monday.

Hi and thanks so much for the input on my tv cabinet. I thought it would be a great idea to combine the two things together but like you I am having a problem with losing my fireplace, It just doesn't feel the same. I don't know what I will do with it yet, my hubby is going to ring my neck, he worked so hard on it. Now about your whale of a tv, I'll have to think about that one, how big is it? It is probably like the one I used to have, oh the big tv dilema, LOL.
Hugs~Kelly

Pepe Le Pew was always my favourite cartoon character!! Unfortunately it's not so easy to get that kind of thing here in Northern Ireland. But your mug is awesome - really great!!

First I forgot to ask you. Is your name French? My good friend spells it the same. We are French Canadians? Just wondering.
Loved Pepe growing up also.
Stole hubby's computer for a hour...shhhh

I turn the flash off and usually get better close up pictures, especially if you already have good lighting in the room.
