Colourful Fridays-Blue

Hello,

Welcome to Colourful Friday. Today's colour is Blue. If you come to Kainga you will come through a blue gate to a house with blue verandah posts. You would have passed the blue pool on the way. Lots of blue around here. I found lots of blue items from the sewing room.
If you stay for a cuppa chances are you will be given a blue cup. Though not the cow one on the end that is my cup!!!! You can use a blue tea towel to wipe up. Though I wouldn't ask you to do that.

Chances are you would be given the milk for your cuppa from one of the blue jugs. The tea may even come from the blue teapot.

You would see some of the blue doily's I have crocheted. Chances are a blue quilt will be seen and I can guarantee you the blue cutting mat may even be on the table. The blue plate is very special. That stays on the cupboard above the oven. Ainsley and Julian gave that to us after they went to Bali. Julian proposed to Ainsley over there. It was just before the first Bali bombings. So a special plate. The blue sunflower jug is beside the kitchen sink brightening every ones day who does the dishes or at least puts there plates in the sink or dishwasher.



You would see some of my blue cross stitches hanging on the wall.Below it is a blue doily with a blue plate full of some of those little wishing stones. If you stay for a while you will get to use the blue broom and dustpan and brush set and the laundry basket is blue If you are into gardening there are plenty of plants planted in blue pots. So all in all a great many items are blue here at Kainga.
Last week on Colourful Friday when we celebrated the colour red I had Tomato and Fennel Soup at the Book Shop Cafe. This week I could try some blueberry muffins maybe.
Hope you have a Colourful Friday and look out for Blue.
Happy days.
Bev C

A cup of blue tea in a blue mug, eating blueberry muffins outside under the blue sky while watching the blue birds sounds like a wonderful idea. Who's in???

Bev, as Chris will tell you, blue is my colour. I love to wear it and like to have blue things around me. I have a cup and saucer that would match your blue teapot perfectly. Love all your blue things! Happy Blue Friday!

I love blue! Looks like you have lots of blue inspiration around you. How fun! Sort of like a treasure hunt. Our dishes have blue and our bed comforter is blue, plus we have a blue couch and chair. Blue makes me happy today, especially the blue sky!

Just my kind of place. Blue is my favourite colour. Doesn't matter if it's light, medium, dark or in the teals and peacock blues. It also happens to look good on me with my blue eyes.
