"One of Those Days"......& "Classic Blue"....

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

Sky "blue" it's best!....

It is Tuesday evening...It has been "one of those days" that started with a long "to-do" list & has finished with very few of those "to-do's" checked off?......I don't quite know what happened?....This morning I seemed to be so on top of it all, but as the day progressed, I was continually being pulled away from the immediate task at hand,...& all of a sudden found myself spending way too much time on projects that just weren't that important???...Oh well, what's a girl to do!...Some days are just like that, I must accept it & go on!.......O.K., so on the subject of moving forward,....One of the last projects of "summer" that I really want to accomplish is to finish painting a few different pieces of furniture. I have a "corner cabinet" in the living room, a "coffee table" on the patio & a couple "odd little chairs" that all need a fresh coat of paint!...and the color I have chosen is "blue"....Forever, "classic blue"!.....So off I went to the computer to pull up a few color-ideas, that I may consider for these "destined to be improved" pieces. In the process of doing this, I ended up coming across this assortment of the most charming "gates"......ALL IN "BLUE"!.....They are all various styles, ranging from ornate iron to simple wood, but each has a lovely "quality" of it's own. One that says "notice me", but in the most "respectful manner". "Blue" is like that you know,.... proud, but quiet. I think I may just add another piece to that "list of painting projects".......a "blue garden gate". One that would not only look amazing, but could also be closed behind me, forcing me to finish my long list of garden "to-do's" without being distracted! :).......Here's to finishing what you begin!........Heidi XO
A touch of "blue" against the "neutrals" of Fall.....

Simple & bright & "blue"!....
Could this "blue" gate, be hiding the most "secret of gardens"?.....
Such pretty "blue" detailing!......

A rustic rock wall & a country "blue" gate.....

And the most adorable little gate, all "dressed up".... in "blue"!

Note: For those of you participating in my "Halloween Swap".....I have assigned you all partners & instructions, & will be e-mailing them to you tomorrow...& I will also be sending out your tiny "tag favors"....a little treat for joining me!......Thank you all!

Blue for your cabinet...splendid! Will be looking forward to seeing that later! Have fun...I love painting/refinishing furniture. Love all the blue for us here today...I know what you mean about "one of those" days...I'm having "one of those weeks"--LOL! Oh, just loved seeing your sewing room--what a big, beautiful space you & the girls have to work in! Happy Day, Heidi ((HUGS))

Those gates are just beautiful. Can't wait to see your projects when you get them painted.

I've got a "To Do List" for the upcoming holiday weekend that I'll never get done. I'm usually just happy to complete a few items on it. Two of my grandchildren (3 1/2 & 6 1/2) are coming for the weekend. I know they will make it harder but sooo much more fun.

What beautiful pictures. I would love to have a blue gate - so whimsical and wistful.

You just have the most beautiful items on your blog! And for that, you have an award waiting on my post today! If you are busy, you can just enjoy knowing I thought of you--don't worry about the rest that goes with it. dana

I'm crazy about gates to begin with, but make them blue and I love them even more! The photos you found are absolutely charming! ::Jill

Blue is my favorite color so I loved this post dedicated to blue. Maybe because my favorite color is blue that my personality is also 'proud, but quiet'

I enjoyed being shown the "gate". Blue is my favorite color. Your gate photos made me smile.
