Summer Blues


My new summer blues aren’t really new at all.

I have used and enjoyed these colors for years.

Especially in turquoise jewelry .


If I am wearing my favorite combination, what would it be?

White linen , lots of turquoise and sterling silver jewelry, an ice cold Diet Coke, my Tahoe’s AC on max, and Motown playing .



I am linking to

Laura, that post makes me happy. I have an orange-walled bedroom, and I am ready to add a turquoise quilt.

Talk about happy colors!

Happy Monday,

Were we separated at birth by accident? I've always been a Motown girl( only like a couple of the Beatles and Elvis songs). I drive a Tahoe w/ AC on full tilt. I used to be a high school English teacher. We've established that we are both gaga for blue & white. The teals/aquas are my very favorites. Oh...I'd probably choose Diet Dr. Pepper, but I'll drink Diet Coke, too. I know what you mean about the year beginning in September instead of January. Thank you for your kind comments. I'm eager to see the blog on your upcoming luncheon before school starts in September. Cherry Kay

Oh...and it's always irritated me when school starts before Labor Day and ends after Memorial Day..........It's un-American! Cherry Kay

Breathtaking mosaic. Especially love the ceramic bird in the middle. Happy Blue Monday.

Diana said...

Love the "blues." Have a great day.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

You have some beautiful turquoise pieces. I love them.

Marguerite said...

Beautiful blues! Love turquoise jewelry, too, and have been collecting it since the 70's!

Debbie's Garden said...

I always feel so pretty in a white shirt! Turquoise jewelery is calming to me too. Do you find that? Calm is a nice offset to the fool I look like singing loud n proud to Motown while driving too! Like no one can see in my windows. LOL

Jennifer said...

I am in love with all of your turquoise jewelry!!! Turquoise is my favorite! You have a huge collection that I'm drooling over!
