containers for a deck by the Pacific. As we get closer to summer the ocean areas take
on a very distinct crisp blue aura...the sky and sea seem to become vibrant in shades of
blue. This particular house has three outdoor decks and a patio area (Gosh, I wish I
could say it was my house!!! No such luck). The decks are white against a white house
and white sand. For the most part the furniture is white with both white and blue cushions.
Because the sky and sea are also quite blue, I thought I would add blue and white
containers with palms and succulents and some white flowers. Keeping with a crisp look.
I have found wonderful large white vessels so now I am on the lookout for some blue
pots. Not as easy as one might think! Finally I found a variety of blue containers and
have been told I can order any of these shades in large sizes and shapes also. I think I'll
probably order the deep blue color in the lower right corner because the hot California
sun will eventually fade even the deepest blue.
The colors are so pretty...
The shape I've decided on is a tall square hour glass shape... narrower at the bottom
and wide and square at the top...
Most containers will be white but I think the addition of some blue to the decks will be
perfect...especially by the deep blue sea.
What do you think?
For the Giveaway I did a very casual draw. I put all the names in a straw sun hat and let
the little girl up the street pick a name. She has just completed her third heart surgury
and hasn't been able to do many things so this was very exciting for her.
The recipient of the giveaway is Good Life Of Design. Congratulations, Kathysue!
You have a wonderful blog and you continue to educate and inspire all of us.
Please send me an email with your mailing information.
It looks like I may be doing another giveaway soon so be on the lookout for it.
As most of you know, I have been having major blogger problems. I have a very
special post that I have been trying to post but it either disappears or publishes too
early and incomplete. I would like to introduce you to an artist I know you would
really enjoy meeting, so hopefully I will be able to publish it in it's complete form in
a day or two.
Wish me luck!
See you then.
