COLOR Me Teal

The COLOR I love best is teal.

I like the way it makes me feel.

It paints my cheeks a rosy hue

and makes my hazel eyes POP, too.

Teal takes the best from blue and green

and blends them into something seen

in ocean waves and dusky skies

or as a rainy day surprise.


Teal knocks me out and makes me smile.

I think I'll stick with teal awhile.

GO SHARKS!

WOW! Those photos are stunning! The water in the first photo sucked me right in! And the eye shadow was a close second.

Tracy said...

Wow you have chosen the colour I am wearing for my sons wedding. I love it but do not have much in it so cant wait to see what my dress turns out like

Snarky Belle said...

Yum! I love it!! The eye shadow photo made me salivate...that is art to me.

Valsy said...

I LOVE teal too! My wedding colors were teal and peach. One of my best friends is named Tiel. I think you and I are soul sisters...teal included.

Very nice rhyme, your are quite clever! I love teal too! It is a fantastic color, isn't it? Nice "C" post,with wonderful pictures too!
We bought a Simmons Beautyrest, Firm pillowtop plush. We discovered this after vacationing in home that had one and I love it. I sleep on my stomach alot and while I like a soft bed I need a firm support too. This has the best of both worlds for me. Good luck!

Cherie said...

My favorite is anything in the red/magenta family but teal certainly is a close second. I would love to paint my livingroom this color!!
Love the pictures.

I love teal...it is such a special color. The way you used photography to express its value and meaning to you was clever, interesting, and particularly thought out. I thoroughly enjoyed reading and viewing your entry. Thank you also for visiting my “Clock” post and taking the time to leave me a message. Hope you have had a happy teal of a day.

Teal was the color of my first car. There will always be a place in my heart for that color. And how I wish I could do my makeup like that eye. What a beautiful color.

My new favorite fabric combo is teal and red. Go Camille Roskelley!

I love teal too - it does the same thing for my hazel eyes.

Sue, what a lovely post. And you look great in that first photo...

I'm going to send this link to my daughter. Teal is her favorite color and you did it quite proud with this wonderful link to Alphabe-Thursday.
