Junk Love Monday: Blue Is Always The Answer

Seriously. Blue is always the answer. In fact, when the other Blackbird says "I've got a question for you," I love to make myself more endearing by always blurting out "Blue!" before she has a chance to finish. That narrow-eyed look that she bestows upon me in return is like butterflies in springtime....

She has always been a red girl, and I've always been a blue girl, and she loves blue and I love red, so our house is crammed to the rafters with both colors. There are many blues in our homemade color wheel, but turquoise and aqua get top honors. Oh, how I love thee! Let me count the ways....

For the planter collection, I might need these Bauer bulb pots:

And, of course, we've gotta show some game night love:

As previously discussed on this blog, mid-century glass is always a weakness, and aqua makes it even harder to resist:

The flower pin collection could use a giant addition (it's not really a brooch, but we could turn it into one):

And if our soulmate was a tablecloth, it would have to be a turquoise Vera:
