i've got the blues, but that's a good thing . . .
A few weeks ago, my blogging friend, Lesley, over at Peregrinations, tagged me to post seven blue things from around my home.
I could have crossed most of the seven off my list with the photo above -- besides the assorted pieces of dinnerware, the kitchen counter they're sitting on is blue as well.
But I don't need to take any easy way out of this challenge as I've clearly got blue to spare -- Thomas, at Sunday Best, once asked in the comments (in a tone of wonder audible all the way from his home in Victoria to mine a ways up the island!) if my whole house was really painted Robin's Egg Blue (in fact, only the upstairs is -- downstairs is the shade called "Dill Pickle" you see in the top photo above, the background to a painting by my friend Alison Watt). But in addition to the blue walls upstairs, there's plenty of blue downstairs -- the random tiles set in the terra cotta floor, for example.
This delightfully spiky pottery bowl I picked up on Lasqueti Island many years ago.
And these decorative ceramic balls nestled on an artisan-made recycled-glass cobalt blue plate I received years ago from a friend who knew: I love Blue!
Do you? Besides letting me know in the comments below, you are more than welcome to do this meme yourself. Let me know if you take the blue challenge, and I'll be sure to link to you.
