tantalizing turquoise


If cold December gave you birth,
The month of snow and ice and mirth,
Place on your hand a turquoise blue,
Success will bless what'er you do.

Aaahhh, turquoise... Living in South Florida, this delightful color is everywhere. It is the water in the Keys, the color of adorable beach cottages, and our gorgeous skies. It radiates the peace and tranquility of blue and the balance and growth of green with a punch of uplifting energy of yellow. I could stare at today's featured photo by cafedereves all day... it soothes my soul while enticing my creative spirit to come out and play.

Don't you just love how a burst of color can just shift your mood and brighten your day? Do you have a favorite color that speaks to you? If would like to read more about how color affects us, I found a wonderful article at Pantone.

Until next time, stay sweet.

Such a wonderfully warm and welcoming colour in these images! Turquoise is not a colour I'm very familiar with sadly, living where I do in Norway. Here, winter outside lends itself well to black and white photography, while summer is deep greens and blues.

Two fabulous images using one of my favorite colors! I choose turquoise as my color of 2010 after I bought a darling purse in turquoise. That lead to a sweater, scarf, vase, etc.

I've been obsessed with turquoise for about 18 months now. It just makes me so happy. I've invested in art with a turquoise theme and am now using it as a main color theme in my office remodel, such a beautiful color.
