I love your photos and how you made it into a collage. I really need to learn how to do that!

I love it! The pics across the second row are pretty.

My color palette would include pink and Im not sure what else,maybe some beige or soft pretty white.

Thanks for sharing your lovely photos and the image for today is so cute.I love the little message as well.

I like light blue and the turquoise colors. The tea cup too of course. And, those vintage plates look nice.

Kathy's Red Door Welcome said...

Your colors are so fresh and feminine. Love your photos. My colors are mostly yellow with red and green and hints of blue.

Dawn said...

Mine are blue, white, dashed here and there with red. (My first choice would be yours though:) I am thrilled with your photos....I would love them all up on my wall (which is creamy white)
Have a wonderful day,
Dawn

What a beautiful combo you've made! My favorite palette is turquoise and peach. I love peach! And I love the colors of tropical waters. Thanks for your congrats about my daughter! We're still so excited! Jennifer:)

The colors in your mosaic are so soft and sweet. I adore your lovely cup! My palette is filled with a lot of blue shades. My kitchen is black and white, I add some different colors every season .... Have a lovely Sunday. I'm off to make a latte and search for the couch to read my favorite magazine {finally ....} xoxo

Maria said...

HI Koralee!
I love your turquoise phone! It is definitely "groovy." If I ever have a land-line phone again... I'll be shopping for a similarly styled phone ... it's perfect for a nightstand!

I love soft and muted colors on my walls,
{almond paint} in family-sunroom and
a Ralph Lauren paint {White Glaze} -an older shade name- looks like their newer paint shade called {Tea and Sweets} *such a fun name*
I love RL paint because it doesn't smell as much and dries so fast.
I hope you rested well, Koralee, and that your first day back to work is gentle! I'm sure the kids will love to see you ♥
Take care dear heart,
~Maria

I'll have what your having :)

Kathysue said...

Hi Koralee, thankyou for your sweet visit to my blog. I wish I had some lyrical words to describe my colors. They are all Spring colors. Yellow, Spring green watermelon pink and blue, with touches of black and white. I love the Springtime and all of its wonderful colors. Colors have to make me smile or make me feel soothed. I love your turqouise and pink, they definitely make me smile. Kathysue

Alice W. said...

Beautiful! Love it! My palette at home is neutrals...whites, ivories, browns, grays, etc...but I do so love pink and aqua together ;)

I tried to email you back a couple of minutes ago to your question but it bounced back...so here is my answer:

Hi Koralee,
Right now I actually use Photoshop Elements. I used to have CS3 but due to some computer problems, I lost it...Elements doesn't offer as much but works for the time being...may be easier for some to learn to...and it is quite a bit cheaper ;)
Hope you have a great night!
~Alice

Vicki said...

Hello, sweet friend, and what a beautiful nest you have! I love all of the colors you have shown. My favorite colors are robin's egg blue and pink. However, I find I can never narrow my color scheme to just those colors. I love colors of all kinds. Thank you for your visits to Bunny Cottage and kind comments always! Have a lovely, happy week! Vicki

Lisa said...

Love this montage Koralee, and I love your colour descriptions - cotton candy (we'd call it candy floss) and bits of sky. How beautiful it both looks and sounds. xx
