Cooling Blues

It's soooo hot here...and no sign of cooler temperatures.
So, the blues in my home help us to cool down...at least that's what they say.
I know that the cool blues and greens tend to calm, cool, and make us feel better, whereas the reds and oranges heat us up.  I have always loved blues.  And purples!!

These pictures are from some past posts that I made into this mosaic.  They range from crisp cobalt blues to the baby blues in the table napkins.  I guess our eyes just favor certain colors.  I remember as a kid I loved red.  Couldn't get enough of it.  Now I just love the cool colors!  I sure am glad about that this summer!!
Hoping you all cool off soon and that fresh breezes of fall come to us all soon!
I'm linking up with the following parties for Monday!! Come on and join in the fun!

Good morning Doni,
I am sending you some cooler Ontario Canada weather. Whoooooosh!!! It is overcast and drizzling out today. The temperature is a soothing 63 degrees. We have had some hot (80s-90s) heat ourselves, so this change is very welcome. I noticed yesterday that the leaves of the Maple trees in our yard are beginning to turn to orange and red. After a hot summer with barbequed meat and grilled vegetables, I am looking forward to homemade soups, stews, apple pie and autumn decorations.
I love your blue mosaic! It is beautiful!!
Thank you for stopping by for a visit. Please drop in again, soon.
Warm hugs from cool Ontario, Laura
