{turquoise love}

Hi there!!
Happy Sunday to you:)

Guess what.....the sun is SHINING today!! I can't even tell you just how happy that makes me!!!! Even though it's only 10 degrees outside....just a little sunshine always brightens my day!!!!!!!!

It truly is the little things in life that make me so happy:):)
You know what else makes me more than happy....TURQUOISE....
You didn't know that did you?!?!? heehee!!!

And almost even better than turquoise is being able to do a cute little craft with simple things I already had on hand!

This really couldn't be any easier!
Just glue turquoise tissue paper onto glass votive jars and let it dry!
You really can't mess it up!

Oh and I forgot to show you that sweet little seaglass that Caron sent me the other day!! See that blue piece.......beautiful!!!!

And then since I was inspired by my little turquoise craft and the sunshine...I thought it would be nice to just spruce my dining room up a bit!
Nothing to special...I just used things I already had on hand!
The turquoise jars, glass floats from The Glass Float Junkie, the wood box I made, wine bottles and corks, etc!

I think it looks springtime fresh!!!!!!

Oh and that little turquoise frame....I just painted it...glued burlap to the back and then glued shells onto the burlap!! CUTE and simple:)

There's  a better image of it down below!

Just notice all the light streaming in the windows!!! Makes me so happy!!!
I am just so ready for spring!!!!

There you have it!! That's what i've been tinkering with on my Sunday!! How about you!!! What have you been up to!?!?!?!!??

And just because I thought it would be fun!!!
Let's do a turquoise linky party!!!!
Please....do not link to an Etsy shop, online store or other selling venue
But do....
link your turquoise craft or decor and then link back to me on your happy little blog.
And be sure to stop by and say "hello" to everyone!! It is a party after all!!!!
And mostly....enjoy taking a peek at all the turquoise, beachy, happy crafts out there:):)


  1. What a lovely Sunday. I'm looking forward to getting back to doing some projects as of today. The little jars are a terrific idea, and I like the fabric on your dining chair cusions. Will join your linky Heather. Have a great week!!

  2. Hi Heather-

    It is sunny here too, but freezing cold. I linked a dresser I re did for my daughter. It is a post from the summer so you might enjoy seeing my daughter and I in summer clothes and sweating from the heat.
    My best-Diane

  3. it's equally as cold {and sunny!} here...loved this turquoise post! also love that blue glass centerpiece you made too...it all looks gorg! wish I had something to link up with...maybe soon :) xoxo {av}

  4. Your dining room looks lovely. It must have taken ages adding all those corks to the mirror frame. Turquoise and white are my favourites.

  6. i love the little votive holders. your dining room is also so cute!

  7. Love the cork filler on the blue bottle centerpiece on your dining table...

    P. S. I'd like to order the Driftwood necklace but need to know how long the chain is when it's unclasped. 20 inches? That's what I need to have the decorative elements fall at the right place while wearing the necklace...let me know.

  8. Love your dining room and the centerpiece with the blue bottles is really beautiful! Glad the sun is shinning for you.

  9. I love the corks on the centerpiece! And I joined your linky! Thanks!

  10. Gosh... it is all soooo beautiful. I especially love the bottles as a centerpiece on the dining table. B-U-T-FUL

  11. Ohh I love all the turquoise accents, it really freshens up a space ;)

  12. What a beautiful color...Can't wait to look through all the links.....I wish I had your blogging skills

  13. I love your cork mirror! I had not seen it before. You certainly do look like you are ready for spring!

  14. So fun! Love those jars...I may just have to find some to glue tissue paper to! :) Love it, and I love the links too!

    This is totally off subject but I saw this and thought of you:

  15. How refreshing is your post!!! Hmmmm...what do I have that is turquoise to share? Thinking.

  16. Sunshine and turquoise - the perfect combo! Love your dining room!


  17. Cute candle holders and beautiful dining room...I just love turquoise too! Enjoy the sunshine! ~Deb~

  18. Your posts always make me stop, smell the air, feel it and appreciate our sunshine. Seriously.
    Because I live in the south, we have sunshine most everyday and sometimes, I just take it for granted. Hearing your stories brings me back to appreciation of where I live. Thanks!
    Just took pics of my turquoise linky but have to make collage. Be back!

  19. Love the votives... really, it's just gluing on tissue paper? I might need to try this craft.

    Great quote at the end, btw!

  20. I love your votives!! So cute!!

    It has been freezing here too!! But I am glad to say, that now.. when I get out of work at 5:30.. it is no longer pitch black out!!!Yay!! The days are slowly getting longer!!! That is just another step closer to spring!!

  21. So sorry, not linking, but I just have to say I thought you lived in Florida with the lovely beachy theme you have going on! 10 degrees! That's not Florida weather! I visit your blog because it reminds me of summer. :)

  22. Hi there Heather! I just added my little card to the turquoise linky! What a fun remake of your dining room....love all the votives and the centerpiece and of course, sea glass always makes me smile!! Love this stuff!!

  23. That is just too cute! I love it! We had a glorious day of sun in the Portland area on Saturday- we spent the whole day outside just soaking in the rays! Sunshine after endless cloudy days is just the best, isn't it?

  24. Beautiful turquoise! I will have to try your votive idea. xo

  25. So pretty! I love the pictures and creativity!

    ...and doesn't sunshine make everything better? It's frigid where I am, but the sun's out so that helps :)

  26. Be still my heart!!!! I'm in color love!!

  27. Sunshine makes my day! I love your daisies in the blue bottles. My friend and I are beach glass junkies. The blue ones are rare!

  28. ohhh loved this post and i too love turquoise! these pictures are lovely and make me want to decorate in ocean themes!

  29. Love your beachy touches! That cork mirror is pretty amazing too.


  30. If you haven't done this already you should consider it - submitting your projects and your home decor to a beachy magazine or cottage living or something! You definitely have a knack for decorating!

  31. I love turquoise too (surprise, surprise) and my favorite goodie in your post today is the frame with the Turkey Wing Arks. They pair great with burlap. Really, really nice job!

    Enjoy that sunshine, sure wish we'd get a nice dose here in Florida. Can you believe that iI'm seeing more gray when I look up than blue? Didn't stop me though, I went shelling on Sunday with my coat on and had a great day!

  32. What a gorgeous dining room you have...Oh I love turquoise too...In fact, I'll painting our chairs in the kitchen turquoise...

    You made a really cute votive candle holders.

  33. Loving that
    blue and sunshine,
    too! I may have
    some turquoise in
    my next post and
    will pop back ~
    thanks for the
    warm up : ) !!
