What's It To Hue? Tuesday

My favorite shade of blue is the 'Montana blue' shade in the Swarovski crystal line. If you aren't familiar it's the darker blue crystal in these earrings:

and I also have a huge stash of 15/0 seed beads in a nearly identical color which I used in these earrings:

I've mentioned before that pink and orange are my favorites. And while those two may be on the top of my list, I feel like I love all the other colors equally!

When I first moved into the house I live in now, about four years ago, this Montana blue kept creeping in as my favorite color. I was so drawn to it for about a year or so. It kept surprising me when I bought clothes or sheets or slipcovers in that color. For goodness sake, I thought pink and orange were my favorites, yet when given the choice I kept picking this shade of blue!

It is said that blue is a color that calms and relaxes and maybe that was my influence. It was a tumultuous time in my life, and maybe I was drawn to the color because I sought peace! In any case, I was left with a lovely assortment of blue beads in this shade.

So what does blue mean to you? What's it to hue???


  1. Amy I love that color also! Especially the AB versions, and I'm like you blue isn't even my favorite color!

    Blue to me means water and I love water. :-)

  2. Well, blue is my favorite color, in all shades! I usually wear the darker hues of it, from cobalt to royal to navy. But I'm really learning to love a lot more colors, the more I participate in color challenges! :)


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
