Turquoise Tuesday Party #7

Thank you so much to everyone who joined my Turquoise Tuesday Party last week! It was my most viewed and my most linked-to party yet!

I gotta tell you, I am not good at spelling turquoise. I find that it is a word I need to type verrrrry slowly. Why couldn't I choose orange as my favorite color?

Here are more turquoise finds that I use to hold votives or tealights.

The first is a simple votive holder (I purchased three) from Crate and Barrel. It is called Summer Aqua Tealight. It was less than $1.The next is a tealight holder (I purchased two) from the Yankee Candle Store. They were each $4.99. My latest purchase (I only purchased one but that is because they only had 1) is from Michaels and it was $2.99 minus a 40% coupon so it came to $1.79.
And finally, a little plate from the Christmas Tree Shops for $1. Isn't she lovely?I definitely need a 12-step program for this love affair with turquoise.

So, here are the rules for linking to this party. Just post a turquoise or blueish related item that you own or project that you are working on. If you could mention my party in your blog, that would be much appreciated.

I am trying something new this week; a linky where you can post pictures. Hope it works.

Hi Carmie,
I love turquoise, aqua, and robin egg blue, or whatever you may call it! It is one of my favourite colours! Actually, I had robin egg blue in my kitchen, dining, and living rooms a few years back. I still have a robin egg blue sofa! I am hosting a Tea party today and my teacup today is robin egg blue. If it wasn't for the Tea party, I would love to join you! Thank you for sharing your turquoise. Hope you have a wonderful week.

Blessings,
Sandi

So, when's the next TT party? I saw this somewhere and wanted to link up my desk! (I am more than a little obsessed with Bahama Sea spray paint.)
