Aqua Daze

One of my pleasures in summer is eating out in the garden.

    And since I am loving the color aqua lately I have been collecting bits & pieces of aqua when I am out thrifting.
 Last week I found this pretty aqua tablecloth.

 Lemonade is so refreshing on a summer day.

 Pretty vintage aqua plates.
 I love aqua with touches of pink too.
 The pink beautybush is in full glory right now behind the angel watching over us.

 I painted these old wooden chairs aqua.

Hope your daze are going well!

I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and Home Sweet Home at The Charm of Home.

Thank you for visiting,

Oh, Carolyn, this is BEAUTIFUL! When your post opened and I saw it was your blog I could hardly wait to see what you'd done. Aqua/teal is my favorite color, so I was drawn to it imnediately. I usually think of it because of its "beach" quality, so this was a real treat. The tablecloth is beautiful, and boy, would I love to have that silverware! What a treat to stop by! ~Zuni

I just had a tiny little encounter with aqua; it is a glorious colour, particularly in the summertime.

You know, Carolyn, I love the color aqua. The table setting is serene and peaceful. Love it with the touches of pink. Wow, the chairs painted aqua are great. Nice job all around!

I would love eating out, too, but I cannot stand to get bitten by the mosquitoes. Susan
