Delightful Discoveries - Blue Skies 08.31.10

Blue skies
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see...
Blue Enamel Earrings with Sun Charm from letamariedesigns (Artfire)

Singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds
All day long

Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love, my how they fly

Blue days
All of them gone
Nothing but blue skies
From now on

Blue Plate Specials from ArtEffect Glass (Independent)
Throw Pillow - Sky Blue with Honeysuckle print and Amy Butler fabric from wickedmint
Blue Skies Full Apron with IKEA Fabric from pamwares

Blue Skies
what a classic song. Whether you love the jazzy soulful sound of the version by Ella Fitzgerald, the unique country folk sound that is only the inimitable Willie Nelson, or one of the other 50 released versions of this Irving Berlin classic, Blue Skies is sure to lift your spirits on even the most emotionally cloudy days.

Sky blues have a similar effect, wouldn't you say? And what a delightful collection we have today! Thank you to all of the people who nominated their own items - and especially to those who were thoughtful enough to nominate something from another shop! The show's not over yet though... let's take a look at some more amazing sky blue delights!

Wow... wow... and WOW! (Yes, the guys actually wore those suits back in the 70's! - If it was cool enough for John Travolta, it was cool enough for everybody!)

Gauze Summer Scarf Lightweight Cotton Fabric Aquamarine Pastel Blue from beautifulbridget
The Paneled Hoodie, in deep sky blue with vintage print panels from acafterglow
The Blue Chill Leisure Suit from tolle183 **

May you always have blue skies to brighten your days! I'll be back in a bit with a team feature, and of course there's tomorrow's feature of sapphire blue to welcome in the month of September as well as my traditional beginning of the month trivia and facts...so be sure to stop by. Just click here to e-mail me the link to the page of the shop where I can see your nominees.

Before I say so long for today, a few more touches of beautiful sky blue to bring you happy thoughts! See ya soon :)

Fresh and bright--I love it! Willie Nelson's version of Blue Skies is one of my favs--what a great song sung by so many great vocalists. I appreciate you including my cuff today. :)

"blue plate special" by Artglass was awesome.
"Blue Skies" what a wonderful song. It was heartwarming to hear Data's replacement whistle that tune at the end of the "Nemisis"
