Blue Blue, The World is Blue...

I can't get enough of blue for the summer...
maybe it's because we don't see enough of it during
fall & winter?

Just a few of the lovely blues I curated for today.





too pretty








Mother Nature's beautiful work

In my dream world, I would blow this up to super-sized 
&
hang it over my living room sofa...

Hi Marsha - I think you have cooled me down another 10 degrees with all your lovely blues. The room with the plum and blue literally takes your breath away. How fun to have the guts to do that color combination. I hope you are staying cool? To think we have several more months of this high..high heat?!! Sending you much love and hope all is very well?

Love this color, too! I always feel so cool and fresh in summer when I'm wearing it!
How do I chose a favorite photo? Love the long jacket over short dress proportion, the stunning Indian princess, the beautiful gift of peacocks from Mother Nature...but the babies in blue tutus are the most delicious! Thanks for sharing them and making me smile!

Blue is one of our favorite accent colors and hydrangeas one of our favorite flowers. Beautiful post!

Marsha, The images you have chosen could make even blue blush with pride. Gorgeous! I am using blue to accent my mostly neutral family room and kitchen... and loving it! It is good to know that I am up to date in the style dept.
The elegant blue flower looks like you!
Love you!

Oh dearest, this color has swept me away by storm this year. I have that darling photo of the little girls at their tea party and that FLOWER at the end...oh yeah, that would make a LOVELY print above a sofa or bed!

Dream away in blue my friend, Anita

Marsha this is just beyond beautiful... love the last photo with the flower, what a great idea would be to have it as a piece of art hanging over the sofa!

The blue urn with the hydrangeas is a show stopper Marsha. Absolutely gorgeous.

Amazing post! love everything about it, the colors, the interior, the petal dress, the fairy tale little girls...thanks for cheering me up during a much needed brake.

Veronica said...

Love the flamboyant peacock! Those liitle girls are darling and yes that last image is quite spectacular! Looking at it I can even hang it in a few spots. The colour is gogeous.
