Friday turquoise random.
It seems to me that everywhere I look everything is coming up turquoise. Turquoise is the new chartreuse right now.
This is the Christmas?!? window at the local gift shop. Call me old fashioned but I’m not buying it.
Also, everywhere I look there are turquoise lamps. Ghastly lamps which probably should have been shattered in the 1960s when they were made and not allowed to be turned into some sort of chic under the label “vintage treasures”.
Here are a few from the very first page of pinterest. These were the more ok-ish ones. They are everywhere I’m telling you. You can’t look at an Apartment Therapy post without finding at least one, (but they tend to come in pairs) and there are over 66,000 on Houzz! It’s so awful that I’m actually starting to like it and might have to go expropriate the ones from my mother’s basement guest bedroom. Yikes!!!
On the other hand, this is the proper way to display turquoise in one’s home; as understated, jewel-like details.
Another perfectly lovely way to bring more turquoise is as ribbons on exquisite gifts. Everyone loves turquoise like that. 🙂
If you really must have turquoise around you at all times then why not consider some lovely jewellery. I’ve been meaning to make these macrame bracelets for…forever. Aren’t they lovely? Here’s the how-to.
And finally, and because this is random, this has nothing to do with turquoise anything, but this makes me want to take all my paintings out of the frames and off their supports and stack them against the wall like this! Love it to the max!
Sharing with Nancy for some randomness and hoping the links all works. 🙂
