My Favorite Color is BLUE

Welcome dear blogging friends. For the next few posts I will be taking you back to some of my older posts and show you just how much my little nest has evolved over my first year of blogging.

My favorite color is BLUE, I like all the shades of blue from  Aqua, to Turquoise. They are all beautiful soft colors that I feel very comfortable with. Because of that I use these colors in my home and I also wear a lot of blue.

Here are some peeks of blue that I have used in my little nest.

Oh I love it when the sun shines through the window and lights up the blue jars. It’s so pretty and sparkles all over the kitchen.

I remember the winter that my Mom made this beautiful blue and white cross stitch quilt.  I’m so glad that she decided to give it to me. I really cherish it.

I painted some old books in different blue colors, I use them to give color to vignettes.

My grandmother helped me make this doily when I was young and of course I picked blue thread to make it.

I love wearing pieces of turquoises jewelry, I have many beautiful pieces.  It must be from me growing up on a horse farm and all of those horse shows that I showed in. I have received many as gifts.

These sweet little birds now live at Cecilia’s at http://mythriftstoreaddiction.blogspot.com/. I found this sweet table runner at a antique store several years ago and I knew it just needed to come home with me and then to Cecilia. It’s so funny how life has a way of working out. Go to Cecilia’s blog for the whole story.

  2. As a little girl growing up in Brooklyn, I used to look forward long weekend walks to the Brooklyn Museum with my dad that housed a large Egyptian collection mainly because I was enthralled by the Egyptian Blue that I now know is a synthetic blue made of silica, lime, copper and alkali. I marveled at the Egyptian pottery and jewelry that glowed ablaze with this fabulous blue glaze, a blue I never had seen before that, as ancient as it was, was still so vibrant, it seemed to be breathing. Ever since, I have been a fan of blue! There is something homey but yet majestic about the various hues of blue, from the soft aquas to the dark royal blues. I love all your uses of blue, especially the light feathery blue wreath with the little deer prancing in its center!
