Blue Monday SMURFS

Sally of Smiling Sally is hosting a Blue Monday event. She has invited anyone who would like to join in to do so! Go on over to her blog and see who is playing today!
I know I just recently posted about Smurfs (see this post). This past week Britt and I have been talking about my collection. I went down into the basement yesterday and found all of my smurfs.
As I mentioned earlier I received my first smurf from someone I used to know and from that time on I began collecting them.
These are the Smurfs I was able to get to "stand" for their portrait. They all weren't being very cooperative.
This is the collection that I have.
I have been going through some old pictures of Britt and found these. The shelf behind Britt (who by the way is in her blue daisy apron) held all of my smurfs.

Here's Britt again riding her Smurf that she got for Christmas.

Happy Blue Monday.

take care,

Dawn, I am up early and I would love to have a cup of your coffee this morning, sigh, Bill has been making the coffee every day and he is still sleeping. I guess I have to make my own.

Your smurf collection is so cute. There is something about those cute little people that makes me smile. The pics of Britt are so cute. I laughed at the smurfs all lying down. Were they playing ring around the rosy? smile.

Have a great school day...Jeanne

You have quite a collection of Smurfs. I remember when they were all the rage. I'll bet those shelves were something to dust! Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday!

That is quite the fun collection, Dawn!

That bottom picture of Brittainy is going to leave me smiling all day...what an adorable face!

Good Morning Dawn
Smurfs!! Perfect for Blue Monday. Oh my that is quite the collection of smurfs. I remember them so well from when my eldest son in particular was young. They are so cute. I love the shelf you had them on...and Britt looks so happy sitting on her Smurf!

Thank you for sharing your Blue Monday.

Sweetie said...

Thanks so much for such a great post. My two youngest girls shared a room and had smurf sheets, smurt comforters, and everything you could imagine that was smurf. Britt looks like she enjoyed her smurfs.

Hi Dawn,
Thanks for sharing your collection. I love to see the pictures of when your kids are young!

I KNOW we had a collection of Smurfs at one time...must have belonged to my son since Kelli can't remember it.

I may have to ask him if he knows what happened to them!
Hope your day is great!

How precious, what a trip down memory lane! I used to think those Smurfs were the cutest things!
Have a great week!

Beverly said...

Oh, these were popular when my son was in kindergarten. I daresay we probably still have a few around here.

Great collection! And, that Brittainy was such a cutie.

Dawn! You just brought back tons of memories! LOL! Oh my how I loved to watch the smurfs. What I want to know is why there was only one smurfette. That never made any sense to me.
Enjoy your day.

Wow Dawn; you have a lot of smurfs. They are all so cute. Love the photos Brit is so cute what a doll. I used to watch the smurfs with my daughter she loved them. In high school she played sleepy smurf she did pretty good just laying on the floor sleeping most of the time. lol


Tracy said...

Hi, Dawn! Look at that Smurf collection of yours! That's a lot of blue-cuties!...I remember my sister and I used to watch a Smurfs cartoon on tv on Saturdays when we were kids...gosh, I feel old all of a sudden recalling that--LOL! And that Papa Smurf reminded me of an uncle of mine, with that rather Santa Claus bead...that is if my uncle suddenly turned blue--LOL! This was fun...Thanks for the walk down memory lane! Happy Day, my friend ((HUGS))
