Tealicious

Firstly, I must start with a 
Heartfelt "Thankyou" to YOU!

For visiting my humble Blog and 
For all of your lovely comments....
Now I know you all have blogs.. 
but this truly has been a big step for me!!
And I so appreciate your encouragement !

 
Tealicious???? You ask??
I guess by now you have got the hint! lol!!!

Yep..... The Colour TURQUOISE (or commonly known as TEAL)
And as some of you know one of my all time faves!!!
Anywhere from Duck Egg Blue thru to the most vibrant Teal..... :)


PANTONE has predicted that TURQUOISE is
THE Colour of 2010! 
And was I smiling when I read that?? Yep you had better believe it! lol
"Turquoise transports us to an exciting Tropical Paradise
While offering a sense of Protection and Healing in Stressful Times....."

I wish I was here right now!!! Dont you??

TURQUOISE is definitely  having an impact  on this season's fashion....


And how about these joggers by NIKE???
Might even be enough inspiration to get me to the gym!!! LOL!!!!



Now I could even go as far as to suggest
 TURQUOISE could be classed as a NEUTRAL..... lol! 
Yes I love this colour that much!!! 
You'll see what I mean......

And if you are ever Stuck for INSPIRATION
and your Mojo has floated off somewhere....
Try surfing around Wedding Company Blogs and Interior Design sites...

Hi Lou -

In my humble opinion, Turquoise makes anything look good! All the goodies on your blog today are just mouth watering. There are some really beautiful color combinations. I think I'll be taking some time out to play this evening!
