Stay tuned for a furture (and hopefully successful) after pic!

Ok, enough about my rockin purchase.  Let’s talk TURQUOISE!!!!

So this color ain’t just for funky southwestern jewelry anymore.  It’s definitely had it’s turn in the home decor spotlight this year…  But don’t take my word for it.

Trend Alert: Turquoise. Conjuring images of Caribbean seas and dazzling jewels, this beguiling blue-green is today’s must-have color for fashion and interiors.
I wish I could devote a whole room to this color.  Damn rental!

Love it…
