Shades of Aqua



                                                                  Hello everyone,

                                                   I hope your week is going well and I am sure you
                                                   are looking forward to the weekend.

                                                     I haven't had time lately to do any new photo shoots
                                                    so I am probably getting a bit boring here as I am sharing
                                                    some photos again that I took previously.
                                               
                                                    The obelisk above was brown but I painted it turquoise/aqua
                                                    blue and it gives the garden a nice pop of color.


                                                     
                                                  A mixed bouquet in an aqua vase picks up the color
                                                   of the pillow and china on the tray.
                                                                  Aqua china.
                                                    Little Abby in a pretty aqua dress.
                                                             An aqua tablescape in the garden.....looking
                                                             forward to eating in the garden again.

                Breakfast in the terrace.
                                                                     

                 A vintage chenille aqua bedspread.

                                                         I painted an old picnic basket soft aqua...you
                                                         might have guessed that I love aqua.
                                                             How about this charming turquoise/aqua
                                                             house in the village of Victoria by the Sea.





                                              Lastly, a few more aqua teacups......all these
                                                        summery shots are making look forward to
                                                        the warmer days ahead but for now I am enjoying
                                                        the longer sunny but still winter days we have here.

                                                                                    Thank you for visiting,

                                                                                                     Carolyn

Carolyn, Your images are stunning. I love the aqua and turquoise - love the pretty picnic basket, and the china. Your garden looks pretty and I know you are looking forward to spring and summer. Little Abby is a doll! Hope your week is going well.

I sure do enjoy all of your lovely photos. They brighten my day and I always look forward to taking in every detail. I hope the snow is melting away as I know you can't wait to be back in the garden.

Aqua is such a lovely color. I recently made some pillow covers that were floral on an aqua background. I always love to visit you. You have such a gift for beauty!

Love the shade aqua, Terri. It's so soothing. Of course your photos are dreamy. No matter that they are not newly taken. And that granddaughter! Such a charmer. Delightful post. Susan
