Blue is the colour

My favourite colour is, and always has been, blue so I was pleased when Pascale from Paris-Glasgow tagged me to post seven blue things from around my house. Much more pleased than if it had been yellow, or green. Here they are:

I bought this print from Julien Merrow-Smith on his Postcard from Provence site. I love the powder blue sky.


This cornflower blue tunic has been one of the items I've worn most this summer.

The walls in our bathroom are blue (with a worrying grey mould detail in one corner). I bought this clock just the other day.


I have two of these soap dishes. They were a present from friends in the Dordogne. I keep a fine tooth comb in this one.

I bought this book in that second-hand shop in Saint Andrews but haven't started it yet. I'm a great admirer of Jenni Calder's biography of RLS.


This is my keyring, often to be found in odd places around the house. I bought it in Greece at Easter.

We have this patchwork on the wall in our bedroom.

So what's blue in your houses Materfamilias, Mausi, Andy, NMJ, and Princesse Ecossaise?

Hey there, What a beautiful quilt. I can't upload photos anymore to my laptop for some reason so I listed 7 blue things instead on this comments thread at my blog.

I saw an Yves Klein exhibit in Marseilles in 1990. You should get a poster of his work. IKB.

I may have to pinch this!

Just about everything in my house is blue. I just can't seem to see past it.

Beefking : Well worth the entrance fee?

Teuchter: Pinch away.

As blue is also my favourite colour, I really enjoyed looking at these photos of items to envy ;)

Fun! I'll get on this sometime this week -- it's been a bit busy 'round here, and I won't be home in daylight 'til the end of the week, but when that happens, I'll be snapping up blue, inspired by you -- love that quilt!

Hi Lesley,
I never took the time to visit your blog after the comment you left on mine. I'll definitely be visiting again!
By the way, I'm very jealous of your tunic, that is something I would love to wear :)
