My colourful world in photos
Oh dear ! Its 10.15 am and I'm not dressed yet!
I'd love to wear these summer shoes today to lift my spirits cos it's grey outside.
My bedroom was so relaxing and cosy that I didn't want to get up early - so I didn't!
Thought I'd dust this pretty corner of my bedroom ... as its cold outside!
Got side tracked with my jewellery stash!
blue wild fibre necklace
decorative blue shoe make-over
blue flowers in your hair
Ice cold in Oslo
and my art doll was dressed!
These photos are about one morning in my life. I was cosy in my bedroom - newly decorated. I love the soft and relaxing tints. It used to be pale green! Then I woke one day and couldn't stand it any more. So glad I changed it. Now it's a joy to go to spend time there.
It was cold outside, so I stayed there and snuggled down for an extra hour! Bliss. Then my thoughts went to what I should wear. My lovely decorative shoes downstairs were calling me. I'd left them there the night before. I'd been looking at them and dreaming of warmth and sunshine and thinking of wearing them walking the promenade just five minutes away or on holiday in Italy. (I was so excited by that - it was a cookery course.) BUT they are summer's day shoes. Tho' I will OFTEN wear them around the house and make sure they are comfy!
So back to my bedroom. I decided to sort out some jewellery for a while instead! I design most of it myself ( and buy too when the mood takes me) as well as teaching others at local workshops. Most of them are wild and wacky and quirky like me - er the jewellery design that is - not the people. ( well maybe some of them are as quirky as me.)
I wondered what to wear. I looked at my "dream cuff" bracelet, but wasn't drawn to wear that colour and instead opted for a blue wild fibre necklace - so blue jeans it was. Calming and relaxing.
Then a little later before I got dressed and as I passed the top of the landing I thought to myself "Maybe I should dress the 10.15 am lady!" as well as myself. ( The clock in the photo stopped at 10.15!) She's been naked like that for sometime. Bet she's cold! Maybe she'll appear in later photos fully clad? Now there's an idea - what costume can I design for her I wonder ? My creative mind is already on overload. She did get dressed!
So then I decided to look for some beautiful blue photos from my stash to glean more about the mood I was in. Why was I being drawn to blue? Was I seeking sunshine and blue mediteranean pillars - needing a break? Was I looking for blue embellished shoes to walk a new easy path? ( blue is also truth.) Did I want to wear blue in my hair to calm my ever active head and mind? or around my throat (as a necklace) to keep my voice light and soft? Did the butterfly wings that I created remind me of my wanderlust? Was I remembering feeling cold ... in the ice bar and yearning for the fun Oslo again?
BLUE is not only linked to being cool and calm and collected. It is inventive, trustworthy, loyal and the healer. It can also be conceited, critical and unforgiving .. but can also take us into self responsibility and calm self expression. I wonder what your blue choices may mean to you?
