Color Block Friday 2007.08.03 - Who Likes Blue? Raise your hand...

In honor of the blue skies of Portland, OR where I live, I am showcasing blue this month - the month of my birth! Yes, I will officially be one year older, perhaps wiser, and always different. I know that most people like to celebrate the New Year with resolutions - but I reserve mine for my birthday. What do I want to do in my next year of live? What goals have I attained or do I want to make new ones? Definitely time for a list.

But, for now, I am going to celebrate BLUE. It's such a soothing color. We often associate blue with water and sky - but what of other associations?
What would we do if we didn't have that something blue for our wedding day? Or the wild forget-me-nots your kids like to pick and leave on your porch? And let's not forget some of our favorite gemstones: sapphires, turquoise, apetite, london blue topaz, and my favorite: the rare of rare indicolite or indigolith (pure blue tourmaline).

So, if you think of other blue things you want to share feel free. A favorite toy from childhood, or maybe you're painting a room in your house?

Here are the blues in my repertoire. There are so many, since it is one of my favorite colors (in fact I don't think I have a favorite color anymore - much too hard to choose). I currently have 12 shades: baby bird, sky, faded denim, jet stream, sleeping beauty, turquoise, ocean, little boy blue, peacock, tourmaline, indigo, and midnight - whew! ... and I'm always looking for more.
