It's Party Time!

......over at the Esty Cottage Style Blog!
This months color is Aqua.  The party lasts all week, so I cna't wait to see everyonestrue color! I love the shade of aqua or it used to be called blue green in the crayon box. I think if pine trees on the mountainside.....a pair of flipflops I had in the 60's with a big flower on em with different shades of aqua....a 60's coffee pot I have with gold and aqua diamonds on it.... ya know there are a lot of different hues and shades in this color family...................................................

Here is a vintage set of Melemine dishes I found for sale on Ebay.

We  have this 1950/60 aqua and black pottery bowl for sale at our flower shop.

This is the center picture on one of 4 English aluminum plates in my collections and it's filled with shades of aqua.
 This is a pillow I created using a 1950's hankie, 1960's tourquoise cotton fabric and rickrack, accented by a 1960's enamalware pin.
 My autumn throw I use on my kitchen porch glider has a lot of different shades of aqua.
 These next 2 pictures show a variety of blue greens in 1950's magazine showing fabrics.

 This tin is from the 1960's and filled with embroidery and threads from my Grandma.
 And, this is another 1950-60 vintage dishtowel I beaded and hand-embroidered to create a pillow.
Wow, I didn't realize I had so much aqua on hand. Well...I do love the shades of greens. Here are a few more aquas........................................

Feel free to copy and use these for your own paper crafts! Well, I think I go and see the other guests at the party. If you'd like to join me we'll go thru HERE

Hello Melody! Sorry to hear that you have been closed...hoping that your dad feels back to himself soon :) We were in Cinci last month for two days...went to Lebanon one day too. Love your grandma's sewing tin - I have my grandma's box (plastic, broken lid) but it is still ever so special!! Have a great week!!

This color is so soft and pretty, we used to have many things this color back in the 50's. Hope this color makes a return cause it' right along side of pink for me. Very nice post. Hugs...Lu
