True Colors Thursday - Turquoise

We've done turquoise a couple of times already and it's more of a challenge to find different stuff around our house!
If you want to play, give our hostess, Blue, a shout!This beautiful necklace was made by Stanley's girl, Lisa and she gave it to our mom! We just love it! Can you see the Airedale charm?These two WoolieDales (one of them is a mini-Dale and looks like a Welshie) are playing with a ball that has turquoise on it!Abraham Lincoln was carved by a very gifted carver named Mack Marcarelli, who has since passed away. We feel fortunate to own a few of his pieces.
Abe is carved on part of an antique cheese press.We LOVE croutons! Please can we have one, mom?!Next week's color is primrose yellow!

So until next time................

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Love the necklace.
Turquoise is such a pretty colour but a toughy one to do.
Am wondering if TCT has run it's course, as can only repeat the colours now, even if I do try to give them a new name!

Love, pats & pets

The nuggets of turquoise are so pretty in the necklace. Can you imagine the thrill of finding them embedded in stone, while rooting around among huge boulders.

We love to dream.
Your pals,

I love turquoise!!! In my dream house that I showed everybody when my boys were young my kitchen was turquoise!!! Loved that kitchen.
You always do a good job with the colors!!!
I have gotten spells of getting dizzy all my life. Sometime it lasts a couple of days and other times it lasts weeks, then it is gone for sometime months!!!! A few times it has been gone for years!!

Good evening m & m
The droop cherry blossoms are very beautiful.
And, there is air.
It is the droop cherry blossoms that the shape of the tree is beautiful though there are a lot of kinds of cherry blossoms.
A wonderful weekend with the shine of the soda pop of a turquoise color. :D
