Detroit Leaning

It's all about blue today. It's a good safe hue for me. It's the sky. It's the sea. It's just me. As in azure, baby blue, beryl, cerulean, cobalt, corporate blue, cyan, indigo, midnight blue, navy, Prussian blue, robin's egg blue, royal, sapphire, sky blue, slate, steel blue and more. I find it strong. I find it calming. I find it secure. I hear it's a good color for bedrooms. It's soothing. It's even been known to keep evil spirits away. They say colors have meaning for us. I don't know about that. For me, it comes down to this. Blue is a simple color in all its shades. It's me.

  4. Like Picasso, I, took, went through a blue phase in my home, but it's all been changed now. It's an easy colour to use for decoration.

  7. Red is my favorite color, but blue is nice as well. This is a lovely shade. Too bad we are not seeing it much here. We've been plagued with rain and gray skies. :(

  10. Don't forget cobalt blue. I have read that 90 percent of the collectors of blue and white pottery are men. BTW, visit me tomorrow for some more Detroit blue . . .

  14. Love the shade in this pic. I have been wanting to paint the ceiling of my front porch, "haint blue". Keeps the haints away...or so they say in the south.
