blue, blue, my world is blue

favorite things friday

Polaroid,  Amateur Photographer Ashveen Peerbeyh, Still Life with Cherries


Chanel Fall 2010

this is one thing I would spend $$ to purchase,
a killer pair of boots...

A few years ago, we were in Venice, one of my girlfriends & I shopped
while the guys found something else to do...every day I would look in the
window & see beautiful boots, I passed them by.
Finally, my girlfriend, Hershey, said "just buy them."
I did. Both pair. The best money I ever spent. They were D&G, very
fashion forward, one pair was black suede with gold embroidery all over (they are still
beautiful & I will wear them this Fall), the other pair was black satin with colored
flowers embroidered up & down one side...I've completely worn them out.

Hi sweetheart! Love this post! I'm a huge fan of blue. Those boots are killer. And sometimes you just have to give in and get what you want. I do it from time to time and I especially used to indulge on my trips to Italy. That was before the euro though :)

Hope you had a fantastic week. I'm just getting back into the swing of things after vacation....

Have a wonderful weekend, love! xoxo

I love the variety of blue, how it can lift and calm one's spirit!~ Nature paints it best, but these images are a close 2nd~

Well my dear...this was not the typical blue post...at all!
Once again you have found beautiful people, places & things that take my breath away!
The billowing netting over that bed is unbelievable! I am inviting my bloggy friends to stop by for a visit. I would love to know who or what has inspired you to write the gorgeous Splenderosa. I want to share with you who first inspired me!
Have a beautiful weekend.
