Blue...


Blue is such a wonderful colour...as well as loving true pure blue, as seen here in the printed roses on my Karin Eriksson mint cup, I love blue when it shows itself in it's full spectrum..being almost green or almost purple... like in this dried hydrangea from last summer. What great clear blue light we have today with the sunshine! Today is much better than yesterday..thank you for all your sweet comments of support yesterday, I feel much better now :)

Here are some stunning photo's from all around flickr with the tag 'blue' as their connecting theme... here , blue , Blue-Ribbons , untitled , pox first, then shingles ...as I say, just loving the spectrum of blue, and the variety these blue posts are bringing out..so lovely!

I got perhaps the best bargain of the century on eBay last night...a vintage 1960's G-Plan sideboard in teak! The wood has a lovely tone, and it is really long..6'6" with drawers and wee cupboards too, very retro, and just what I was looking for!! All this for..drumroll.....£15.00 (or $26.00)...how great is that!? And I can pick it up, as it is located in Edinburgh, so by next week I shall be able to show you some pictures. I am VERY excited :)

Have a great Tuesday all....Xox

ah!!!!! i had a Gplan teak sideboard i was trying to sell 6months ago - never thought of you! it was perfect condition, polished and loved for nie on 50 years. what a shame. however, i am sure you will enjoy this one just as much!
it definately feels like spring now - the scottish air is fresh and crisp! how lovely to celebrate it with colours

i need to find myself some blue, too.

Blue and white are a wonderfully classic combination. Been reading your blog for a few weeks now, it's great to read a lovely design/craft blog from Scotland.
