Turquoise – I just can’t get over it!

 

I posted this about a year ago, but it is one of my favorites, so enjoy all these yummy images!

I loved last week’s post (COLOR) so much I couldn’t let it go. Looking for photos online of all things turquoise I stumbled upon a blog called House of Turquoise. Check it out, but before you go there, here we go again! There should be something for everybody today.

 Enjoy!

I want this kitchen.

and the York wallpaper shown below. . .

Here’s another remarkable room.

 

 

 

Skona Hems shares this room with us.

 

 

Peonies and a book – simple.

Pretty – from another blog called Centsational Girl.

And here’s a lovely little bauble from my own garden taken 4 or 5 years ago.

This guy I photographed as he strutted his stuff on a Texas farm.

Now  “just for fun!”

 

 

 

 

 

And today’s finale:  turquoise Gibson Guitar SG Special!

 

 Thank you, Pantone, for 2010 Turquoise!

 THE END!

Iowa Rain verses Pretty Shoes

 Several pairs of my shoes have been flooded out. So far this year, over 40 inches of precipitation have graced the fair community of Cedar Rapids. That’s right – and we still have three of our “tradtionally wet months” ahead of us!

Normally, I wouldn’t go off on a rant for this blog, but sometimes the Iowa weather makes me cranky. It makes everybody I know cranky. I find myself wishing I owned stock in a flip-flop company!

 Frankly, we midwesterners are extremely weather-sensitive. The very first decision we make each and every day depends on the weather: what to wear. And this year (actually last year must be included as we remember THE flood) we  must decide what shoes we can or cannot wear based on how many inches of rain have been predicted. 

I mean,  don’t misunderstand – I am fully aware of heartland beauty. I appreciate each season with its unique spectrum of colors, and spicey or earthy scents, and comforting ambience.

But then it rains.

Every season.

    So yeah, I’d wear these to work!

HUES of SHOES

This is the one! Really. It’s my inspiration piece. I promise.

My designer told me to simlpy find a piece that I love and go from there. She said I would love the end result if I pick something (that I already love) to inspire me. Something. Anything.

 I said , “Do you mean a piece of art work, like a painting?”

She said, “Anything.”

I said, “Maybe a lamp?”

She said, “Anything. Do you love your lamp?”

“I love my shoes! Call the painter!”

She said, “I’m just sayin.”
