Blue Party

My favorite color in the whole world is blue. It reminds me of sky, water, my baby's eyes... so many beautiful things. When I saw Etsy Cottage Style was having a Blog Blue Party, I decided that I had to participate. Since I have lots of blue around the house, I thought I'd share some of my favorite blue things.

I found this great tote on etsy

a beautiful teacup from Japan (I collect cups and saucers)
I made this clock from an old record and pages from the book I'm writing. I need to find longer hands for it, though. It's a work in progress!
I love this aqua vase I found at an antique store. I have a collection of blue and green vases that I need to get down from the attic, now that I think about it.  ;)
my favorite painting- Van Gogh's "Starry Night"
I made this mosaic frame and put one of our band's promo cards in it.
I love this statue!
This last picture is of my 2 mostly used items- "Streams in the Desert" by L.B. Cowman is a collection of devotionals for hard times (highly recommend reading it), and of course my ipod. What would life be like without music?

Thanks!!!
I was scared at first to when I started art journaling. I was afraid to mess up the paper or make ugly art so I started out using just a cheap spiral notebook. That way I didn't feel like I was messing up anything expensive. Now, after over a year I am not afraid to mess up anything. I know that if I don't like it then I can just paint over it. Listening to other bloggers/artists has helped me alot too!!!

Aloha Michelle,
I found your blog as I went to visit Lani, Your title caught my eye and I just thought I would come over to say hello. I enjoy meeting new friends and I enjoyed my visit with you as well. I also collect teacups and saucers, They are all different and each has a story of friendship behind it, some ae treasures I found as I went treasure hunting lol.
