Azure

Today, I am participating in Smiling Sally's Blue Monday blog party!




This kitchen is so 'refreshing.' The cool blue is cheerful.



This next porch just tells me that I am in Maine or Nantucket...........




Heaven in a bed frame............



I was whining on Springtree Road's blog that I was not selling much on Etsy. ....Had a sale within 24 hours of the whining! Here's the BLUE item I sold.....



Some generous friends gave me an old table that I can use for my art projects. (instead of my trusty old kitchen table).

So I started painting and whipped out this BLUE picture of my visit to Fernandina Beach, last week.


I kept telling my sister to bring her not-waterproof-camera out in the water so that I could take a photo of the beach from the water, but she wouldn't. So I just painted what I could remember. (what is WITH her? 30 years ago she would do everything I told her to!)

Love this blue beadboard, courtesy of Renovation Magazine.

Nice blue art! Cute as can be! And sisters? I have two who don't mind. Of course I'm the baby so I guess the same could be said of me. ;-)

I like that kitchen shot and remember seeing it in the magazine. Believe it or not, that Nantucket looking picture looks like a beach house we leased years ago on the First Coast (near Atlantic Beach). They love wood shakes in that area.

Fernandina is fun. We had looked for a place there, but once while visiting we got trapped with sea fog and the paper mill when it was running. That sent us racing to St. Augustine instead. I still adore Fernandina, though. There's a wonderful shop there called the Plantation Shop that has the absolute coolest things. It's a magpie heaven!

Happy Blue Monday...

XO,
