I hadn't realised how drawn I have been to blue this week until I started to post.

Blue skies smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies do I see.

(Irving Berlin (1888-1989), U.S. songwriter. "Blue Skies," Betsy, Irving Berlin Music Corp. (1927). Music composed by Ralph Rainger (1900-1942).)

Perhaps I was subconsciously inspired by the fantastic weather that we have had in East Anglia over the past month. Long may it last!

  7. My favourite colour is blue! Normally I'm drawn to purple. I went to a show once and by colour favourites the lady picked out twins in the audience, youngest sibling etc. Apparently purple is often a favourite of first borns as they were treated like royalty by their parents and purple is a royal colour.Amazing show!

  8. Such a serene shade of blue going on here! These fab Folksy items look amazing together. heaps of thanks for including my turquoise square ring. Sharing to FB.
