~ Ocean Blues

My renewed love affair with aqua to Tiffany blues has not diminished yet. While looking for another picture, this one popped up.

It was a beautiful room. I keep thinking I'd like to see an off white/cream cover on the bed. Maybe because it's so hot out now.

It was a show house for the benefit of the local Opera Company. The opera company recently announced that they could no longer stay open. Music and art has a difficult time hanging on during recessions. The first things they cut from schools as well. No need to feed the soul during hard times they seem to think.

The ocean has been calling to me. Although I grew up close the water, I don't go very often now. Life was always too busy and we just didn't make the time. I always thought I would spend more time at the beach "later." I guess it's later now. A few days will be just right even with the afternoon rains.

Sweet Hubby lived by the water for a few years as well in Hawaii where he got to be a surfer kid. It must have been a fantastic place to be back then. The Atlantic will just have to do for us this time.

See Y'all In a Few Days


  1. Your blog is really beautiful.

  2. Beautiful blues, Donna!

    I'm drawn to the water, even though I'm a midwest girl who doesn't swim or boat!!! There is just something about the water! Maybe it's genetic, from those long ago days...(18th century), when my many times great granddad sailed the seas.

    Enjoy your time away!!

  3. I love the water - any kind of water! Maybe because I'm a Pisces. The beach however I can do without. Unless we go off season I just can't take the crowds and noise!

    Have a great time!


  4. Have a wonderful time Donna...

    I too love the ocean, I am not one for a pond or lake...having melanoma I can't get there like I used to and just sit on the beach. We still get there just in a more creative way :)

    We have been to Hawaii and loved it so much...which Island did your hubby live on ??

    All the best,
    Kathy :)

  5. Donna, I hope you are relaxing and drinking in our ocean's beauty and having the bestest of times.


  6. I am in love with robin's egg blue myself this year. We just painted our master bedroom in that color and I love it. I love all your furniture makeovers. The colors speak to me as well.
