Good Morning,

And welcome to True Colours Thursday. The colour for the day is TURQUOISE and our hostess is the wonderful Miss Blue. Should you wish to play along, just go over and let her know and then you're in - it's that easy. Mom cheated a bit for today - she went into our archives to get the pictures.

Mom is always looking for vintage
Scottish Terrier items
and it always thrills her all the more
if she happens to find it in turquoise.

The lovely young lady in the turquoise slacks
is our only living Granny.
The rest of the young ladies are her
sisters and first cousins.

Mom's Flea Market Finds -
she's always on the lookout for a little turquoise.

Our turquoise swimming pool -
it will be a while before we
get that out again!!

Beautiful - D loved the Flea market buys - she can't resist any colour at the Flea market!

We loves the tart recipe - if D feels brave she may try it!

PS We agree, Paddy is super cute in his Doggles - Paddy is not breed specific - he definitely would cross-date!

PeeWee went berserk when he saw the swimming pool. I swear he would use ours if it was still out.

How nice that granny still has her sisters. I love that photo.

Happy turquoise to you too! I enjoyed all the photos. What a sweet pic of your grandmother and relatives. I don't think I've seen turquoise Scottie cards before--great find! I love the other treasures too.

Have a great day.

We just Moma mentioning under her breath that she wants to go flea market shopping. Now. It doesn't take much to get the bug in her. And many more of these wonderful posts are gonna break her down and convince her to start doing True Colors Thursday.

We all LOVE your turquoise finds! Especially the vintage cards. And the crockery and stoneware. And the picture of your gramma and her lady relatives. And, of COURSE the swimming pool (It might be just like ours in Florida!) Heeheehee. We love it all.

Your Colorado pals

Our Mom likes turquoise, too. She says she wants to use it as an accent when she paints the kitchen. What's an accent?
