Do you like the color blue?
I find myself admiring blue so very often.
Humid blue skies ~
White puffs of fleecy clouds ~
Blues that change with the angle of the sun ~
These remarkably hot and humid days are deceiving to the eye.
Blue is a cool color.
But down here, on land, it is blazing orange.
I have a secret shady nook that offers relief ~
But on the hottest and most humid of days, it is still too warm, even in my little shady nook.
A quick stroll to check on the tomatoes ~
Won't be long now.
These lovelies will soon be on my dinner table ~
Fried Green Tomatoes ~
My one decadent treat...
Uh-oh...what is she sniffing around for now?
One quick look at the cucumbers ~
and it's time to run back to the comforts of the indoors ~
I am perfectly content in my little home on blistering, orange days with humid blue skies.
Bringing the outdoors in ~
Happy yellow sunflowers...
I have plenty to keep me busy inside.
A clean studio ~
a clean desk ~
and a clean reading nook ~
I am still busy framing up art and vintage photos.
My little antique ghostie photo is finally framed ~
I found this photo at the bottom of a musty old box at a Southern California antique/flea market a few years ago.
One dollar is what the vendor said.
I paid the man and quickly left, as I was sure he had no idea there was a tiny ghost woman in the photo ~
Can you see her?
Just there on your right hand side of the headstone ledge.
Wearing a white scoop-neck frock with hands clasped at her breast ~
I know, it is nothing more than an optical illusion, I'm sure of it.
It's fun to wonder, isn't it?
Sadly, my grand, orange and green pumpkin from last Autumn has become soft-bottomed ~
and I was forced to say good-bye.
But alas -
I am happy to know that such a lovely pumpkin has been replaced by...
The Mad Hatter ~
Mr. Hatter once lived in Bizarre, Arizona with Miss. Vanessa Valencia and a cast of tea party characters ~
I am proud to have him watching over my studio now.
He is a perfect fit in a studio with the very lightest of blue walls ~
Blue art ~
Blue blue blue.
What is it about blue?
My favorite color since forever.
Look what I finally found ~
Aren't they gorgeous?
Anniversary edition of the classic blue canning jars ~
I have been hoping to find these for months with no luck...
then out of the blue :-)
my local art store had only a few cases and I grabbed one lightning fast.
Lovely, eye-candy blue.
Do you like blue too?
What is your favorite color?
Until Next Time:
Gerushia's New World
P.S. Remember this?
Blue blue you got the flu,
Nobody wants to play with you.
