Last day of June, last day of one of my favorite colors so far. One door closes and another one opens.

#183 mosaic

Aquamarine in my mind... another one from our trip to cinque terre... What a beautiful and inspiring place. My visitors left, and with them the sunshine... It is still really hot though. I loved having a full house, now it is back to business! Working on setting my new blog and Etsy store.

#180 Lonate Pozzolo and aquamarine

Still busy, we have visitors here and we are coming and going all the time. Good thing I picked up this marble before leaving the house! We went to the town where my friend's family is originally from. Great visit if only to travel to the past and walk in your grandfathers shoes...

#179 Boring fence

I am very tired but very happy. The sale went very well and my confidence has been boosted high. Sorry I could only manage a boring shot. I like some aspects of it, like the rust and the DoF. Happy Monday everyone!

#178 Ant

The power of macro! I can see so much detail on this little one... a little aquamarine in disguise... it counts! I am almost ready for my sale tomorrow. I am very excited and very nervous. Hope it all goes well.

#173 Found!

It is so late, and I am so tired! Lots of good things happening, including finding doors the right color! You have to love a good door when it shows up when you need it! Good night...

#172 Where in the world?

Inspired by paloetic, a take of my own. We should all do one! Interesting shades of aquas and blues, I am slightly bothered by the shine on them... oh well.

#171 Old thing...

Some days I think this aquamarine challenge would be easier if we lived in the past. Their color choices are not understated! Image captured during the "Abbracciamo il Lago" festivities yesterday. We tried to break a Guiness World Record by holding hands around Lago Varese... There were some holes in the embrace. Pity...

#169 Better late than never

Beautiful beads purchased at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. I have wanted to make a necklace with them, now that they are out of storage I think I will. I will post the finish work here.

#168 Aqua in process

Like little soldiers in the back, my work in progress. I keep on postponing going live on the web, need to find more time! Inspired by cleaning brushes... not quite aquamarine, but it will do.

#167 "My dress hangs there"

Inspired by artist Frida Kalho and her empty dress against her vision of the American landscape. She wanted to move back to Mexico, and she expresed her longing by her implied physical absence. We are awaiting news to see if we stay in Italy or if we go to the back to the States. I guess I feel in limbo.
On the positive side, I adore this dress and what it implies... Summer!

#166 Car TtV

Brand new color for June: aquamarine! It is going to be a challenge, I know that much. Aquamarine just feels so summery, like cool pools and turquoise jewelry, don't you think?
Because of a mistake way back in Blue land, I messed up my days, so I am making up for it now, instead of going back and changing all the titles on my images.
