Just the thought conjures up visions of sleek sports cars, shoes custom designed to fit very pointy feet, and elegant clothing.

This lovely blouse was purchased by a mother for her daughter while on a trip to Italy. She scoured the boutiques until she found just what she wanted with the “made in Italy” tag. The delicate cream color makes it suitable for all seasons and is ideal alone or under a jacket or sweater.

Pandora is Singing the Blues and So Am I


I know, reading my blog is like getting the Pacific Northwest weather report. With whispers of temperatures approaching the 80s this coming week, I am sitting wrapped in a black sweater and my fingers are blue from the cold. My Pandora radio station is wailing the blues and so am I, which is embarrassing when customers walk in. Hence the blues are heavy on my mind today. So I figure . . . go

Amidst a sea of brightly colored tops and blouses I picked a few fun blues to play with. Blues can be utterly pure, unaffected by the reds and yellows that pull them into shades of lilac or periwinkle, or turquoise and aqua.  Even if they decide to dance with these colorful neighbors, they remain ever blue.
