January: Blue

Thanks to S at  for hosting this color photography project  while having new born twins and the cutest toddler on the block! I am not a photography zealot by any means, although I did start out on a box camera of my dad's that took photos in rolls of eight, so you really had to pick your shots  because you only got eight at a time - a far cry from the digital age where you can quite happily snap 100s and not spend a penny on a print. I took these with Susan's six year old  Canon  Digital Rebel EOS. I repeat: I am not a photographer.  I wish I could figure out how to display them beautifully as our host  did but I don't have photo shop and it's late, so here we are.

We have blue and white "christmas lights" all around our living room. We haven't taken them down because they brighten our garden apartment up and Isobel loves them.

Ma "blues" - that's what me and S call our blue crocs!

Blue sideboard still life -  the tall patterned thing that looks like a drum is a percussion instrument that makes a sound  like a little thunder machine

Isobel chillaxin on the couch with one of her books. We read it to her last night. It's a really cute story and it's about Blueberries!!!

I think looking at these photos,  we could say it's a blue and yellow / white theme!

Fantastic pics!! I have to say Isobel is so beautiful I'd like for Oliver to meet one such fine gal in the future! (of course...should he prefer boys then the equivalent would do!)

Sweetie I've updated the blog with info on the heating pads, let me know if you find/make one and how it goes!
