A Bit Of Turquoise



This is a pretty vintage turquoise necklace
I think I am going to have my very talented sister change it into a bracelet.

Then I will sell it at the The Old School Market on May 28th!
Tea Cups & Saucers on a shelf in our garden.
A This little turquoise chair I sold @ my last sale.

Aren't these the cutest bookends!



Wearing a Turquoise Cross Country Shirt....
Our youngest daughter

It's my fave colour. I just purchased a pair of turquoise Converse. I think I love it because it's a colour that makes me happy yet it's so calming.

I love love turqoise! It is my favourite stone!
I have a beautiful Persian turquoise bead necklace. The beads are rough not shiny an incredible piece. I was fortunate to get it due to my mom owning a jewellery store and having an afganistan dealer. I also got lapis beads from him.
Love your photos Colleen. How lucky is your daughter to have her own horse!! Every girls dream!!!

Hey Colleen....I'll just be there shopping. I was going to go as a vendor but my oldest son is graduating this June and I figured I would be just too overwhelmed with it all!

No, I just can't explain it, cause I'm really NOT a "blue" kinda girl...but having said this, I become weak in the knees, and completely swoon over this delicious color...and as you know, it has worked it's way all through my little home.
Such a beautiful post!
.....miss you...xoxo...R

It's a wonderful springy, summery color. Eyecatching, and delicious.

I have another turquoise blog that I read, thought you might like to see it.
