I've Got The Blues and My 100th Post Giveaway Continues!

The Color Blue
There's just something about cobalt blue...I don't know if it's the deepness of the blue, the almost black aspect of it's shading, or the lighter parts that grab me, but cobalt anything is gorgeous to me.
The color of the sky mixed with the color of the ocean, light shining through them to make them look like sapphire jewels.  Blue Beauty!
These appear to be broken cobalt bottles that have been tumbled to make them into what I was told are rocks for the bottom of a fish tank!

I think my new relish dish is the prettiest way to display them...and no fish are needed!

Hmmm, perhaps I need to add a few of these pieces of Blue to the Giveaway???

That is a beautfiful cobalt blue color. Wouldn't that tumbled glass be pretty in a vase with some yellow or white flowers too.

I find that cobalt blue is an incredibly flattering colour to wear but it's so hard to find clothes in that shade. Maybe a necklace made from those beautiful stones?
Have a great week. Louise x

I love that blue color too, but here in Sweden we call it 'The blue of Greece'.
Just been there, didn´t find many blue things except for my post in this week of Blue Monday.

Doni, if you see this... please email me at my blog. I have some questions about your dogs.

Thanks so much...

I left you another post before the last one, but for some reason it didn't go through! Love the blue stones. They are such a great color.
Your giveaway is so neat, but I feel that I should give others a chance to win since I seem to be on a winning spree. LOL! It's the right thing to do despite the fact that magpies love shiny objects. ;-)

Happy Blue Monday to you...

I'm not a big blues person but if I must choose, either really deep dark midnight blue or colbalt. I love how alive it appears. Hugs. Tammy

Donnie said...

Great photos - I love your blue stones. Happy Blue Monday.

Congrats! On your 100th post. That is quite a feat. I just started this month. I can't imagine 100. I am a new follower. Please drop by and if you follow me I will be thrilled. Ginger

Beautiful blue color- and what a cool way to display those awesome rocks! Congrats on your 100th post! It made me think about how many I have made, and so I checked. I'm at 94, so I am thinking I just may have to copy your awesome idea and do a giveaway, when I hit 100 too! Thanks so much for a chance to win, as well as getting me thinking about a giveaway myself. I love your blog and thank you for all the inspiration I get from you! I am looking forward to your next 100 posts! :-)
God's Blessings to you,
