Blue ~ Turquoise ~ Aqua

My good friend in her vintage hat.
(That I should have bought)
... Oh well, I am sure she will lend it to me ...
The blue peacock feather hat I did buy that day
Not Mine
Not Mine Either
This One is Mine.
Well, in my dreams. I think I'd be darling in it ... sigh
It seems most of the cars that interested me at this
car show that my husband and I perused ~ were blue.
My own car is a pretty shade of lavender.
I'd show you but it doesn't go with this posts color scheme.
I glittered this angel and made her a crown of turquoise
Have you noticed that when you are liking a certain color
you see it everywhere? Had to get the belt.
And the flower.
Do you need a new vehicle?
This one is for sale, saw it on the side of the road
and made my husband stop so I could take a photo.
Blogging can make you do strange things.
STOP!!! I need that for my blog post!!!!
Loved this old blue bike in front of an antique store
I wonder where my old bike is?
The one I use to ride every summer day back in my youth.
Glitter and Ribbon
Isn't it delicious?
Speaking of delicious, and I can't seem to fit blue into this,
but last night at a Thai restaurant I ate some amazing
coconut ice cream
Does that even sound good? It didn't to me,
but after tasting it I formed another opinion.
Oh, now I want some. Bad. And it is 10 p.m.
So I don't think it's gonna happen.
craving. craving.
Oh wait, I am getting away from the subject of
(I am feeling blue about no ice cream)
Turquoise Blue Aqua
What if God had not made blue? What would the world look like?
The sky, the water, my childrens eyes...
I am thanking Him for creating blue
~ For letting me see it ~
I love this old mixer
~ waiting at an antique store for it's new owner ~
As well as this wall-mounted telephone
Hello? Hello? Hello?

My Blue Glass Bowl
filled with sea shells
These are the colors of summer,
the beautiful hues that are speaking to me
( ~ even in attire ~ )
What colors are delighting you?
What colors represent to you

AHHHHH!!!!! THIS IS BRILLIANT! YOU KNOW THAT THIS COLOR IS TAKING ME BY STORM TOO! Oh dearest friend, every single picture in this post is perfect. ANd is that our sweet L. in the first picture? What a great model, and those hats......and that ANGEL! You, are the glitter queen. I thought I was, but you have dethroned me! The aqua glitter is a must that part of the Martha Stewart line? I have a gorgeous blue glitter that a dear blogger friend sent me, but I DO NOT have that aqua color....gotta go out and find some! Wow, the dogs look great, the cars, the phone, everything. You have certainly given me a jolt of energy at this hour dearest, and I will treasure this blue post for a long, long time. My next post for tomorrow has a lot of blue too! And yes, what would this lovely earth look like without BLUE? Thank our God for that great color.....the sky, the sea, the rare flowers and the color of our sweet childrens' eyes....

Have a fabulous, blue day my dear! Anita

You know I am surprising myself by being drawn to Aqua. My house is red (wine) and cream and there is no place for this Aqua but still it haunts my dreams. Love the hounds!

Dearest friend,

Thank you for your words of wisdom on my comments page; how wonderful to be able to SEE an improvement in someone's person as they are OLDER and not younger....there is a beauty no doubt,in youth...but there is an awesome shimmer of hope, glory, eternity in the patina that only God can impart....what we do with it is beyond our understanding, and attainable...we just have to have the courage to find it and run with it! And I know that you have started the race and I am chugging along with you! Let us run with our creativity and enthusiasm and bless those around us with the afterglow of our patina!!! I LOVE YA GIRL! Have a sparkling Sunday! Anita

How FUN!!!
I love turquoise;
when asked on a
form what color
Crayola I would be,
this is the color
that I put down : )
Glorious images, all;
And you are right,
you would look good
in that little car,
with your hounds right
next to you, their fur
blowing in the wind!
Happy Monday, Violet.
xx Suzanne

What a beautiful, intriguing post. I can see there's lots of work/fun in this post. Makes me even more aware of colors than I am and that's hard to do.
P.S. Your doggies are beautiful too. I love all dogs, but particularly sight hounds!

Blues have always been my favorite colors, but right now I'm really loving the 50's turquoise and red with touches of black and white!I have a small piece of an old chicken feed sack from my childhood that is my inspiration piece. My dream studio has black and white tile floor (squares), white beadboard, turquoise walls, and accents of red, black and white all throughout. Hey, I can dream, too!!!

Can't wait to see which of the goodies I get from your giveaway. Thanks again! Becky

Hi Violet!
What a lovely post....I love this color, too....I love a lot of colors...I can admire an all white or cream room BUT as for me...I MUST have color!!!
I would love to see your lavender car!
I love what you did to the angel! That got my creative juices flowing...what did you use to adhere the glitter?
I agree w/Trish..that bike photo would make a lovely painting!
You have a beautiful weekend!
xoxo Kathleen
