50 things...No. 3

"Blue color is everlastingly appointed by the Deity to be a source of delight!" ~John Ruskin

"How sweet to be a Cloud floating in the Blue!" ~AA Hodge

This may sound like a strange thing to be grateful for, but I am so thankful for COLOR in my life.
The deep green of a freshly cut lawn in the spring...the bright yellow of a summer sun...the glorious orange & red tones of an autumn leaf...my daughter's beautiful brown eyes...I just love color! Out of all the colors that you can find on a color wheel (or in nature) my all-time favorite would have to be blue.

To me, blue is...

my favorite pair of jeans
the color of my son's eyes
a relaxing day at the beach
my childhood bedroom
my electric blue bicycle
the color of my bridesmaids dresses
a cloudless summer sky
fresh blueberries
the kids having fun in the pool


  1. Dawn I love, love, love this gallery of blue. I am also so grateful for color in my life too. Hence my blog, somethingblu.wordpress.com and jewelry brand, ila blu: ilablu.com. I am so hapy to have connected with you at Mondo and to have an opportunity to see more of your work here. I am still very interested in a copy of Wish. Hope. Dream. If we can arrange it. I sent you a couple of msgs to your Mondo profile. Please let me know if you are still interested. Keep up the great work!!! Gorgeous!
