Colourful Friday

Wishing to be friends is quick work,
but friendship is slow ripening fruit.

Hi everyone! Welcome to Colourful Friday!
This week's colour was
Teal.
I thought it was going to be a bit
tricky for me, but if you really have
a good look you can find things.

As most of you know I am a button collector. Mostly out
of love I collect buttons, but my scallywag side just
loves to have more buttons than my friend Heather.
I am surprised at how many different shades of
teal there is. I hope my photography skills don't take
away from my teal collection.

I have rounded up Cory's cup which is a green
teal.
When I went hunting for teal things, I was so surprised at how many
white goods have teal on the print or on the item itself.

Also a little trip into the folk art cupboard I found a lovely backing
paint that I was fond of when I was right into folk art.
A gorgeous shade of teal.
I tell you, any practice I can get with my
photography won't go astray!! lol. The paint pot
looks a slightly different shade in this photo.

I am off now to visit Robyn and see what her
collection of Teal is and also the other girls who
have joined in to Colourful Friday.
Have a lovely weekend.
Kind regards, Anita.

Hi Anita.
That's a lovely collection of teal buttons. Gorgeous shades.
I wonder why teal is used so often on white goods .. could it be that it looks fresh against the white? No idea!
Have a lovely day.

Hello Anita,

I forgot about buttons this week. Though I did a load of washing straight after doing my Teal posting and guess what colour dishcloth was in the wash. How many Teal buttons does Heather have???
Happy Colourful Friday.
