Christmas Blues

It's okay to be a little blue...

The colour blue is so peaceful, restful, and refreshing. 

Gorgeous blue skies lift our spirits ~ houses painted aqua blue cool us off in the tropics ~ silvery blue beaded organza ribbons look elegant when tied around candle sticks ~ blue violet velvet and sequin ornaments are opulent when placed simply on a marble mantel ~ chocolate never looked so good wrapped in cobalt blue foil ~ the luminous blue used traditionally for the Madonna is one of the sweetest blues around.

Although this is not a unique idea {creating a mosaic} I have to tell you that I have been most inspired by my friend Vy, who has a beautifully designed blog, Seeking the Muse.  Her "mood boards" are so fabulously put together ~ both with the subjects and the graphics ~ that it's worth some time to stop over for a visit.  So I thought that while we are all decorating our homes for the holidays, I would post a few of my colour collages throughout the month...although I may get hooked and continue to randomly post these "inspiration boards" whenever the "mood" strikes me.

I hope you enjoy.
