the blues in my life today ...

Wow! Lisa, Kendalee, Sarah and Denise are all doing a colour week - blue today - and I think I'm going to join in!

2 a.m. origami cubes in different shades of blue ...

Yaaay colour week! Glad to see you've come out to play too... I love your blues, specially that little bowl. What is it about blue and white china that makes it eternally appealing I wonder? It just works, doesn't it. Sorry you're up but still VERY impressed that you are so productive at 2am!

Sarah said...

Love your blues-and those little origami thingamies have had yet another job to do now!

in today's drawing, that isn't a mask - those are my glasses. (not joking)

Anairam! Had the blues so bad one time it put my face into a permanent frown...Blue is the top number one favorite colour chosen by people in a poll...I read that somewhere once...I am back by the way- getting over the lung thing and cuddling my dog...alot. Missed you!

denise, kendalee, sarah & lisa - I am so glad I am doing this with you all! Lisa,thank you for this wonderful idea, & for helping a monochrome lady to open her eyes to colour!

lifeisart - I have a a bit of a thing about folding things with paper, and making things with paper!

upanddowntown - Yes, it is odd! (About the dictionaries, I mean.) Also it is weird that I have (for my work) a collection of about 10 dictionaries, but I only covered this particular one.

Chris & Kamana - I am so glad I discovered your blogs through Colour Week!

Linda Sue - You are back!! I am so relieved that you are safe and sound and I am sure the lungs will recover quickly - maybe you will be left with one of those very smoky, sexy voices? (PS The blue is part of Lisa's Colour Week - and not a state-of-mind-blues! Jeez, no, I was depressed for long enough!)

szivarvanyos - All the way from Hungary! I loved your blue photos (and green ones). What does your blog name mean?

Beverly Ash Gilbert - Into the rubbish bin, no doubt ...
