Aqua is My Fav

Today's challenge from Gussy was my favorite color... break it down to one favorite color _that's hard for me because I like so many.
So in order for me to figure it out I had to ask myself these questions...would I wear it? decorate with it? eat it? drive it? and my answer was always yes!

Lately I have fallen hard for aqua. It's so pretty_ relaxing_ and if I could eat it... I so would.
I also like greens_ yellows_ corals_ greys_ a hint of red_ pinks_ deep purples.
Oh, you get where I'm going with this.

Anywho here's some examples of things that I own & love in shades of blue.

This "free to be" dishtowel hangs everyday on my stove.
My favorite part...the blue tassels(even though they're not aqua).
I love anything with that cute fringey stuff hanging.

This lamp and her twin lights my entryway...and I love them.

I drink my coffee most mornings from this coffee cup.
Just because of the color..and it's big. And I like a lot of coffee in the mornings.

This is my blue bubblegum necklace and seriously, it's 1 of my fav's because of the color...

And here are some things in aqua I don't own.. but would love too.
I can see me wearing this...

And I could live in this aqua house_ eat this cake_ and drink from that glass.

You would probably find some of these sitting around in my home...

And I would own a shop that looked like this.......and take orders on a phone like that...

 But..... remember how I said it's hard to pick just 1 fav color. 
Well here is an example of that_ I like aqua & coral

 Aqua & Yellow

Aqua with red

And aqua with pink

Whew!..this was fun. But you see why it's so hard to pick just 1.
All of these colors are so stinkin' cute!
But today Aqua is "it" for I think I need to go paint something aqua or maybe go buy a shirt in aqua...or something....:)

  8. I would LOVE to paint our bedroom that aqua color! We have bedding that has so much color in it so it would fit perfect! Now we need to buy a house :-)

  9. LOVING aqua too. In fact, today I'm wearing it with a plummy purple color.

    I LOVE how it pairs with so much!

    Living room = aqua and red.

    Favorite outfit combo = aqua and coral. :)

    And that phone is to die for!

  10. Love that color, especially with jewelery :)

  11. What I wouldn't do for that phone!! Love aqua too. The necklace is a fav of mine from your shop too! And the scarf, and the dish towel. Love it all!

  14. Aqua is it for me, too! My bedroom walls are aqua! I can see I have some pinning to do on Pinterest now!

  15. Mmmmmm it's all very tasty! Loving the aqua - especially that aqua cake, corr!! :)

  16. Ooooh it's just all so lovely, I want to just sit here and stare at it all day! I gave Roo her choice of what two colors to paint her room purple and green or aqua and pink...she went with purple. Which you would THINK made me ecstatic since it's my fave color but...I secretly wanted her to pick the aqua and pink! LoL

  17. Oh me too! All shades of blue are my favorite...but my heart has a special place for aqua. I really can't get enough of it.
