All Things Blue

I have always loved the color blue.   When we were kids, my sister and I often received the same gifts in different colors.   She would often get the pink and I would get the blue.   We received mohair sweaters one year for Christmas in those colors.   Wow, did we love those mohair sweaters.   Did you have one?

I went through a time when I had tons of red items in my life.   A red chair, red boots, red shoes, red dresses, a red blanket, a red purse, and so on.   I still love red and pink and soft yellow and some greens and certain purples.   But always blue.   My first car, a Chevy Vega, was blue.   I had a house in Arizona for which I chose a blue carpet   It may not sound pretty, but it was a very lovely shade of blue in a brand new house and I liked it.   A few months ago I bought new eyeglasses and chose blue frames for both the regular glasses and my sunglasses.   I also purchased a new pair of blue shoes over the weekend.   I think blue is coming back around this season and I'm jumping on board.   

As always, there are blue skies and blue water.   




It's a Spring like day here with blue skies and the ever present wind.   I hope Winter has ended for those of you in cold climates, and that you have a very nice day.   Thanks for stopping by.

Ooooh, your coast! I know I say that a lot! LOL...

I think a fresh pop of color in accessories is fun and brightens the face and overall look. My go-to has always been neutrals and BLACK, which I still love.. wearing mostly black today, lol.. but I try to get out of my comfort zone and wear some color now and then because it's cheerful.

I have only been a fan of blue for the last few years...before that, I hated it and owned NO clothing that was blue. I was always much more into green. But lately, blue has been growing on me, and I've even added a little to my home decor! Just goes to show you can change at any age. But as your photos show, maybe it's the gorgeous blues we see in this area that have changed my mind.

This made me smile. My sister and I were the same.. she always opted for red or preferably pink and I always only wanted blue.

As we got a bit older, we did indeed have mohair sweaters.. and how I loved my oversized cardigan. By then, our colour preference evolved a bit. Hers was a multi-hued pink, yellow, peach and mine was pale aqua. Thanks for these memories. :)

Lovely blues in your photos.

Blogger made some changes this week.   I didn't dig in enough to understand them because most, I'm sure, don't apply to my needs...
