A taste for turquoise

Christmas is upon us soon,
and it is time to make a reality,
of what I have had floating
around inside my head
for some time now.

This Christmas
my home decorating
is going to be a bit more modest.
I have gone with Anita's favourite colour.
(For those of you who are not familiar with the beautiful Anita, do yourself a favour and check out her gorgeous blog called 'Castles Crowns and Cottages')

Yes Anita is quite smitten with this amazing much so, that I think some of her enthusiasm has rubbed off on me.

Turquoise...the colour reminds me of a wonderful holiday we enjoyed a couple of decades ago (was it really THAT long ago?)
We stayed on a boat, at sea on the Great Barrier Reef for about five weeks. It was the BEST holiday ever!
My favourite memory was of a magical little island of sand called Davy Cay.

The water was crystal clear
and the most magnificent turquoise
I have ever seen. 

So with thoughts of this most magical place...I am about to decorate my the cool colours of white and turquoise.

Check out my latest Frost Faery here. She is also donning these colours! 


  1. MY DEAR DEAR VICKI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! I was not even expecting to see my name here! I HAVE TO RUN TO YOUR SHOP NOW!

    Just last night, I put a gorgeous AQUA silk ribbon on my front door wreath. OH YEAH! AQUA BABY, ALL THE WAY! In my harp studio, it is all white and aqua. In our family room, it is SILVERS and GLITTER and GRAYS AND BROWNS. It is stunning. But when you walk into the house, you get knocked over by aqua. Dearest, since this week is our THANKSGIVING, and given that THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING for us Americans is the day we all RUN OUT AND START OUR SHOPPING, I figured that I am going to make my next post for this coming Friday, a SHOP TIL YOU DROP post and I will be featuring ETSY SHOPS with links.....MAY I SNATCH a picture from you to ENTICE my readers to go to your fab shop? I will be including several of my favorites, YOU INCLUDED! Is that OK?????
