Congratulations Turquoise!

My love affair and earliest memory of turquoise began when I was a child.  My Grandma had a charm bracelet with her 6 grandkids represented by their birthstones on each charm and mine was a beautiful blue...Turquoise, see (blurry) picture below...My Mom has this now and took this picture with her camera phone, but at least the turquoise pops, ha!

Well anyway, turquoise was just selected from Pantone as the 2010 color of the year!

I apparently am not the only one who is in love with this color, check out House of Turquoise for more inspiration with turquoise, Erin has it bad but it's all sooo good. ;))))

And lastly, here are some pictures of some of my favorite vacation's....Do you see a theme?

How do you feel about turquoise? Love, hate or indifference?

Good news, indeed since I can't get enough of turquoise! We just did a party with pops of this color throughout:

Just started following you on Twitter and look forward to seeing more color stories.

Oh yes! I LOVE turquoise too! It seems to hint of peacefulness while also being kind of exotic. I have a pair of Turquoise earrings, and they are always my "go to" pair!

Also, thanks for visiting my blog! It's always wonderful to find other bloggers, and sometimes I find fun blogs like yours!

I'm your newest follower!

Love it!

I usually love every color that Pantone highlights! You are ready for it with your background border!

Thanks for visiting me on my SITS day from the other week.

Turquoise gives me childhood memories of people I knew in Montreal whose house was done in French Provincial style and who had a beautiful sofa covered in turquoise. I hope the sofa still exists with the same upholstery.
