"Am I . . . "

Helen Mirren, from Vogue

I know with complete and utter certainty were someone to awaken me in the middle of the night . . . from a stone, silent sleep . . . and ask me my favourite colour . . . I would say deep olive green.  Or maybe purple.  But, as I look around my office these days at the textile samples littering the work tables, or take a cursory glance of my 'things that inspire me' page on Pinterest . . . I seemed to be enveloped in this amazing clear, pure blue.  Everywhere I look I seem to be seeing it . . . and completely inspired by it.

Oddly, after a quick search through earlier projects in my portfolio - I seem to be seeing some of the same hues.  Maybe my passions for certain colours just ebb and return like the tides . . .

So . . .  am I blue again . . .

Hello and happy Presidents day to you! A beautiful blue post filled with inspiration to start me on my week.

I am a blue fan but have not used it anywhere in my house, I may have to remedy that.

Have a great week.

I'm blue at Dan Stevens' choice to leave Downton Abbey, knowing I would get to see his incredible blue eyes each week. I do love blue anything.
