Feeling the Blues

Good afternoon and welcome Through My Back Door. It is hot so we will have to visit in the house today. You can have a glass of sweet tea if you like or the traditional coffee. The choice is yours. I am feeling the "Blues", what about you? I have been reading some blogs and have seen a lot people posting about their blues, so I decided I would too. I am not talking about those old sad blues, but the color blue.  For a while blue has taken a back seat to other colors. However it is my opinion that blue is a staple and not at all trendy. In fact I don't believe color should be a trend. I think you should find the color you like and stick with it, regardless of what the decorators say. I decided a few months ago I wanted  a blue room.
This is in the blue room. It was sent to me by Mary Lou a long time ago

Yes I have the blues and always will. Blue is a soothing color to me. Now I love my reds and mustards too, but wanted to share the "blues".
Can't post a blue post with out adding some of these beautiful blues.

So these are some of my favorite blues. I hope you have some blues that make you as happy as it makes me when you come Through My Back Door where life is good.
