Turquoise Thursday

12 May

IEtsy BLUE

I love the colour TURQUOISE. It is such a universal colour and at the same time, SO unique. Blends with everything and yet stands out from the colour crowd.

Few items on Etsy caught my eye while browsing and it must have something to do with the fact that I always spot something which has the T-colour in it !

I think the necklace at the top, from Elegantknit , will just look superb with a summer dress.

And doesn’t this next item just make you want to go on holiday on an island ?

Next one is this totally adorable lampshade. What do you think? Like it – or no? ….Come on – even if it is not your style – you have to admit, it is pretty cool. It is by  Shepherdofthesea.

Now, how cute is this?? A baby hat for a newborn ! Love it.

If the first necklace is not for you – how about this one by PashaBodrum…very intricate…but would be lovely with a crisp, white buttoned shirt.

Maybe you are not up for something to hang on the neck…how about a little something to hang on the wall then? This clock will certainly brighten up a fun playroom or a cool teenager’s room ! It is from onedayatatime.

Maybe not for the teenager – but this print  Modern Illustration Flowers Print Black White Red by TwigsAndLace will certainly work for me a wall that needs a little help to get noticed in an all white room.

And when I saw these… well, too bad they already got sold..but still they are well worth showing you !

They are from the 1950’s – an era in which turquoise was very popular !

Now, don’t let me even start on my own collection of turquoise items in the house…maybe on another rainy day….

But I can show you just my latest addition, this armoires, that I recently got in Morocco.

Maybe wondering today what I should put in this armoires is what got me started off on the wonderful world of Turquoise this Thursday.

Happy Thursday everyone !

    Ek is mal oor die kleur. Baie nice kas en daai lampskerm laat my opslag dink ek moet by een vd oumas in Ma Lina se oord gaan sit dat hulle my leer hekel.
