Hmmm...What Is This Color Anyway?!

      YAY! Monday!! Another beginning of a week that we can be happy in! :-) ... What?!...Is that too much exuberance from a sleepy 'Wug' on  a rainy, foggy, New England morning?! ^_^ Okay, okay! I'll keep it down a bit. And there's nothing like just the right color to set a low key mood. So here goes...

       First's a gorgeous flower pillow. Flowers and pillows...two of my favorite things, for obvious reasons if you've been following my blog for a while. :-) ... But...hmmm...what would you call this color?!

       Depending on what I was trying to name, I've referred to this color as 'Teal'...'Turquoise'...'Aqua Green'...'Blue/Green'...'mint green'...'ocean green'...and 'Seafoam'...

       Is there an official name that refers to this color?!...I don't know! But I'm just dorky enough to know what colors DON'T fit into this 'powder blue'. Powder blue, although I can't describe it very well with words, doesn't look like 'aqua mint'!...Oh yeah!...aqua mint is another name that I use for this color! ^_^

        Whatever you call it, it sure fits the bill for a low key color, doesn't it?!...

      It's the kind of color that makes you wanna drag summer out for a little longer...

       It's also the kind of color that when you put it up next to other, more vibrant colors, it calms those colors down too! :-]

       Now, strictly in the interest of showing you what I mean, I'm gonna share my latest creation with you. ^_^ Okay, so maybe it's not 'strictly' in that interest...Frankly, I just wanted to show it to you! LOL...

      I had been making so many men's boutonnieres and lapel pins for my Wuglyees shop that I had stopped thinking of my pretty necklaces for the ladies all together...a situation that had to be remedied! :-)

        It'll be back to the boutonnieres and lapel pins today...and maybe a little work on a certain forgotten sweater blanket too...

      Hopefully, after I work some things off of my 'To Do' list, I'll have the time and energy to list a few things in the shop, including this necklace and a couple of lapel pins I already finished!...I'll make it more urgent if any of you want to buy it. Just let me know. Only $17.00. (It has a rare vintage button on it.)

      So, is that low key enough for you?!...HELLOOOOOOO!!!...Did you fall asleep on me?! O_O ...Maybe it was a little TOO low key! ^_^ ... Have a good day, and a good week, everybody! 

When I Lay My Pillow Down

What do I want to accomplish
by the end of the day?
Do I want a sense of peace,
or have my nerves all at a fray?!

I want a calm to have set in.
To have my muscles all relax.
To have brain waves slowing down,
and my awareness at a max.

I want to know that I've done good
when I lay my pillow down.
That I've caused someone to smile,
and feel more happy and unwound.

I want the people that I love,
without strings, to love me back;
And relationships I've formed
to be settled and intact.

When I lay my pillow down,
with my business put to bed,
I don't want to have to worry
that I've cheated or misled.

I want a sense of satisfaction,
and that feeling, "Job Well Done!"
No loose ends that need re-tieing.
No last race I have to run.

What I want to have accomplished
at the end of the day,
is brain cells in the pink,
with no foggy, mental gray!

A happy family, happy me,
a happy God, without a frown;
And I want this every night,
as I lay my pillow down.


  1. Awww, thank you so much for featuring my kitty hoop! Lots of great finds, too :)

    1. It was my pleasure, Sarah! :-) I'm glad you liked my finds too!

  2. Hello.
    Beautiful color scheme. The blue and green combo is refreshing to me. Color block is in style!
    Have a lovely week.

    1. Thanks, Priscila! I kinda like it too! :-] It's very refreshing and calming...sleeping colors! LOL...Have a good week!

  3. I can just hear my Mum saying blue & green should not be seen unless there's something in between. I think it looks good together if its the right shades. I think it's calming and it reminds me of water :)
    I love the kitty hoop. It's very cute.

    1. Ha! Ha! I guess I'd have to disagree with your mum this time. I don't think anything needs to be in you said, depending on the shades of blue and green...And I love the kitty hoop too! :-)
