Paula always creates beautiful vignettes in her shop and I always enjoy observing the creative scenes she puts together whenever I stop by. On a recent visit, all things blue seemed to call my name. Blue plates, blue tea towels, blue vanity sets, blue picture frames, blue boxes, and more blue, blue, blue. Blue beauty all around.

All this reminds me of a song.  Do you know it?

Blue, blue, my world is blue
Blue is my world now I'm without you
Gray, gray, my life is gray
Cold is my heart since you went away

When we met how the bright sun shone
Then love died, now the rainbow is gone

Black, black, the nights I've known
Longing for you so lost and alone
Gone, gone, the love we knew
Blue is my world now I'm without you.

I hope your day is blue in all the happy ways!  Happy week-end!


  1. I remember that song!

    I've been in the kitchen baking this afternoon, in the midst of housework. I turned to the Direct TV satellite radio section and listened to music from the 1950s.

    It always brings a smile and reminds me how much music has changed over the decades.

  2. No La Tea Dah, I have never heard of that song. Glad to see your post, though. Susan

  4. Yes, I most definitely remember that song! What memories it brings back.

    And my favorite color is blue! Thanks for sharing all the neat things that you do!

  5. Yes, I remember that song and I loved it, but it did have a way of making me feel blue. Lovely mosaic of blues and your header is a delight! You could do an entire book on your woodland teas.

  6. Your cabin looks so cozy. And I love all your blue stuff - so pretty!
    Lisa :O)

  7. I love your header! And this mosaic of all things blue is so pretty. I am drawn to blue althought only have it mainly in my kitchen and bathroom, and the kids room. Guess that is a lot of blue. Best wishes, Tammy
