Teal. One of my favourites. I'm constantly drawn to it. So, for a bit of fun I thought I'd see how much I really like this colour by seeing how much of it I surround myself with. Let's take a walk through the house and see how many times teal pops up in things.
But it seems I do like teal in vases and plates. Love this plate by Rebecca Rebouche, who describes herself as a painter of trees, birds, balloons and other magic. I've put a link here to a beautiful little movie I just discovered, that the store Anthropologie did featuring Rebecca in her treehouse studio. Take a moment to have a look, it's inspiring.
And of course there is teal in my fabrics and wool, bags (thanks Cath K, you do a good teal) and in my treasured, old box of 48 Crayola crayons.
I'm wondering if my love of this colour came from my Mum because back in the '70s when Mums were off at classes learning crafts like macrame and pottery everything she made was teal. I treasure these wonky pieces of pottery, because my Mum made them and because I love this colour and obviously she did too. Glad she went back to knitting ; -)
Are there colours you love to surround yourself with? Colours that you are drawn to? Colours that you love? Colours that make you happy?
Wishing you a colourful weekend.
