The Color of Turquoise has taken over my BRAIN...!!


 Remember my turquoise purchases...?

Pillows....


...throws...

more pillows...THIS adorable bike pillow came from WORLD MARKET.

I've been trying to think of other
aqua/turquoise things
that i already have to use in my bedroom.

We are on a
STRICT, SOCIAL SECURITY
BUDGET, so I have tried to do as much as I can on the allowance I have.




 Then, I thought of the pretty garage sale BUST
I have....

Some of you may remember I used her in a
POTTERY BARN COPY CAT CHALLENGE
last year.
(mine on the left...THEIRS on the right...so much fun !!


SOOO...I got her out of a packed box...
gathered up SOME of my turquoise JEWELRY
and dressed her to HIGH HEAVEN !



OOO, yes...
I am IN LOVE....


Don't you think THIS SWEET LADY will look awesome sitting on a dresser in that bedroom ....??
meee, too !!




It blows my skirt up at what all one can come up with, just shopping their house....

ya gotta just LOVE it. !!

YES, MA'AM... my sweet lady, in all her TURQUOISE SPLENDOR,
is going to add a lot of HOT color to my room. 

 
* PEACE *
and LOVE
to all......
xoxo

Yes I love shopping my house but lately my daughter has been shopping it. Her and my dear son in law just bought a new house and we told her we had a few things for them. She shopped through each room.Lol. what she wanted and I wanted to part with she was thrilled to take off my hands. Kids you gotta love em. We have two of the best. Night BJ. Blessings, Becky

BJ,
Lovin' all the tourquoise accents, dear friend!!!
I use to think of tourquoise as a "cool" hue, but when blended with vibrant colors, it warms ones soul!!!
Your busts looks divine with all her jewels!!! So elegantly displayed!!!
Shopping the house is amazing!!! Just a tip. . .in my olden age, I snap a photo of the interior of my storage cabinet during Seasonal changes. . .easy to recall accessories that I might use in a diffent way BEFORE going shopping!!! $ave$ a few dollar$, and in this economy. . .that's HUGE for me, too!!!
Fondly,
Pat

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

Lovely color,especially with all of your black and white!

Shelia said...

Hi BJness! I love your color and I remember when I copied you and painted my picnic basket this color because I loved yours. Thank you for telling us about Kitty's husband. I'm so sorry to hear this.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Mindy said...

You are too cute.
I love turquoise as well. Do you have anything you can spray paint to go in the room? A rattle can is a pretty cheap investment for a big payoff.

Hi BJ,

Yep, I do love turquoise--both the color and the jewelry.

That's a great way to add punch to a room. Your little lady is the perfect place for some turquoise!

Kathleen Grace said...

I L♥VE turquoise! Is this the color scheme for the new bedroom? You certainly have plenty of beautiful turquoise jewelry. You know they say you should take your home colors from what you wear, so that may be a great color to use in your home:>)

I love your bust much better than the magazine version. I simply adore all your turquoise jewelry, especially the cross.
Enjoy your room
Ginger

Debbie said...

Yes, I do think she will look great out for display. I also love that color, and just from seeing pictures of you and getting to know your personality, I am positive that you were born to wear turquoise.

NanaDiana said...

I love turquoise, too, bj. I always have and used to wear it quite often, too. I love it because it reminds me of the ocean- xo Diana

Cottage and Broome said...

I love your lady, I keep hoping I find one on sale, but not luck so far! My daughter is in love with turquoise too. Have a great week, Laura

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Oh I could really go for a beautiful bust like you found!! And you and me both, when it comes to turquoise I LOVE it. The stone too.

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

It is surprising what we can find in our own houses! Very clever idea. Turquoise has always been in my brain...love it!

Jeanne said...

Don't faint bj, I'm back.
the past few weeks have been so hard but I know the loss of my cousin is all part of life and life goes on. We stayed in MI to be with Marilyn's husband. He is inconsolable. Thank you so much for your kind comment bj. I really appreciate it very much.

I must check back on your posts to see what you have been up to. Turquoise is one of my favorite colors too. I love your pics as always and your bejeweled bust is so much fun. I really love your photo in white. You look awesome.

Happy belated Blue Monday my dear sister friend. I am so happy to be visiting you.
Love,
Jeanne
