Collecting - Turquoise Blue

I have a lot of turquoise or aqua colored accents around my house.
These blue glass items move were photographed in my dining room, but
they are currently re-grouped on my entrance console table.with a shallow blue glass bowl
for keys and stuff. They never fail to brighten up a dark area.

Friday Finds - Green Glass

Beautiful little footed bowl with a sweet scalloped edge. I couldn't pass it up for only $4 at a local vintage store. The yellow-green color was a bonus. I served chicken salad in it last weekend.

Fun and Games!

Loook what I got in the mail!! I'm sooooo excited!
Scrabble is my favorite game! I ordered 2 sets of tiles from Ebay to play
our favorite version- Speed Scrabble.

I had fun just organizing the letters into rows to check the letter count> Looking
forward to playing at our next family gathering. Don't know how to play Speed Scrabble?
I'll post rules soon, you will love it!

Friday Finds - Yellow Box

I found this cute little wooden box a few weeks ago at a local shop. I bought it because it was yellow, I am a sucker for anything yellow. I've moved it around from room to room trying to find some useful purpose for it, then I realized it would be perfect in the family room on top of my yellow desk. Inside I put my Scrabble Flash Game and a few decks of cards, all ready for fun.

The Golden Gate is Orange

These bridge bookends were given to my by Katrina for my birthday. She knows how much I love visiting San Francisco. The bookends were almost perfect, but they were not very noticed in white. Considering the real Golden Gate Bridge is painted International Orange, I thought a little spray paint would do the trick. I love them even better now!
