Oh Blue, How My Heart Loves You

cement bird bath, sea, ocean, beach, cottage, shabby chic

Turquoise, aqua, teal, sea blue, aquamarine...all wonderful names for a variety of a wonderful color blue. (If you want to read a bit about where names of color come from, check this out!) In continuation of the pink tour of my recent antique mall visit, the turquoise tour will now commence. Whether you are looking for a shabby beach cottage look, a 1950's party gown, some thing a little funky, creepy, retro or glamorous, something to tell the time, or go back in time, it can all be acquired in the land of this blue.

So, farewell for the day, but first, because you deserve a free printable and a "thank you" for being such kind readers, I found a lovely blue thank you card from the lovely Cottage Industrialist. I found her site via How About Orange, so if you love craft projects and tutorials, check out their blogs and shops.

I love blue too.. light skyblue .. the blue of a swimming pool reflecting the sky! I love that God gave us soooo many beautiful colors! I think I could live in a crayon box! ... well.. that might be a little hard I guess!
