and makes me think of...
my grandma opal's jewelry,
and my kitchen.
i just found this article on the pantone website announcing that
the color of 2010 is TURQUOISE!!!
how beautiful is that?
i would add that it's beautifully retro.
i love their pick,
especially since my entire kitchen is turquoise.
it makes me quite happy.
also, doesn't it remind you a bit of this lady???
she snagged turquoise a while ago, and made it her own.
we call it, "martha blue."
i kind of own a good handful of the kitchen stuff pictured below.
so, yes, the bulk of my "turquoise" kitchen is, actually, "martha blue."
i'm fine with that.
but, i am always on the search for other cute turquoise items to find their home in my kitchen.
a shelf from my kitchen.
(if this room were pristine and photo-worthy at the moment, i would have
shown you around a bit more.but, it's not, so i won't)!
some turquoise goodness i've had my eye on...
(l-r: eight hour day, modcloth, urban outfitters, anthropologie, mimi boden, renegade homemade, forever 21,
urban outfitters, two little owls, mimi boden, these creatures & etsy).
doesn't all of that make you so...ahhhhh? (insert sigh of blissful relaxation).
here's a little painting i started last semester.
as paintings go, it's not quite finished.
aspen trees with their roots growing together...
growing new trees...
there's a heart between them with their roots...
and birds flying up to the trees,
to complete the theme of unity.
i'm still reworking all of the other colors,
except the TURQUOISE!!!
i love the turquoise.
it's seriously always the first color i mix and to hit my canvas.
