Blue blue and more blue
I'm feeling somewhat better today but isn't it awful how colds just really wear you out? I had my first painting class this morning and somehow I didn't feel too bad - probably I was so intent on the teacher and then my painting that I sort of forgot I was sick - but this afternoon I feel tired and not particularly very creative.
Don't you just love these images from some old Victoria magazines? Usually I think of blue and white (Year of color blog colors for January) as summer colors - cool water, striped sundresses, espadrilles, and vanilla ice cream, and that's what almost all of the Victorias that have blue and white in them are - usually June. I think blue and white looks cool and clean, and of course we associate white dresses with warm weather. I remember when Dan and I went to Bermuda in the 1990s, I could only take one suitcase and part of it had to hold some clothes for Dan as he had raced over on a sailboat. So I took all matching blue and white things, many of which were Laura Ashley. I had white pants, white shorts, navy and white striped teeshirt, white cotton blouse with a Battenburg lace collar, a half circle skirt of navy with big pink roses on it, a white with blue print strapless dress, a pink teeshirt, white lace scarf that could be tied into a shrug, blue and white tote, navy blue hairbow and probably a few more things. But it was so easy to get dressed because everything matched.

Well, off to make some tea and read some blogs. Have a great day!
