BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Friday, 25 June 2010
OK, turquoise isn't *new* but it has changed my long held stance on the blah-ness of blue. I can never pick a favourite colour, but I could always pick a least favourite. Yep. Blue.

I think it goes back to the awful grey blue tshirt my grandmother gave me from a trip to Florida when I was about 12.  It made me look like I had the plague, or the  pox, or some other gruesome communicable disease. Or even earlier~ back to my blue eyed mother and sister crooning 'Don't it Make Your Brown Eyes Blue' to brown-eyed-me, changing the lyrics to 'Gonna make my brown eyes blue' and evidencing the desirability of having blue eyes as they sang along in the shag carpeted back of a friend's custom painted van (yes, it was the 70s and my memory is distinctly rust and gold coloured, too).

Anyway, blue and I never hit it off.  And then I found turquoise.
Yes, this is going somewhere... Saturday is marked by the colour blue in Waldorf education...
So enjoy these pretty turquoise picks from the Natural Kids team on Etsy (search anytime: naturalkids team).

Sweet turquoise Itty Bitty Gummie Birdie by yarnmiracle:
A Flock of Sea Turtles (you thought I was going to say Seagulls, didn't you?) by curlymonkey:
 Soft cloth shoes for teeny tootsies from RubysSlippers:
Cutelittlething made this cute little thing!
ImaginationKids offers this sweet cloud stacker:
And one of my own favourite turquoise pieces for cooling down on  hot summer day!
I didn't mean to treat you bad
Didn't know just what I had
But, honey, now I do
And don't it make my brown eyes
Don't it make my brown eyes
Don't it make my brown eyes blue

I love blue on Saturday! Big blue sky to play under. Birdies are partial to sunny weather too.

When it's not 97deg, of course.

Love it! As a brown-eyed myself, I remember singing a song and learning it on the piano: "Beautiful, beautiful brown eyes, I'll never love blue eyes again!"
