This heat wave has been beyond intense and coupled with the rather extreme storm(s) that have passed through and keep threatening to hit again, it has truly become almost unbearable. With this in mind (and counting my blessings since we have been lucky enough to not have our power go out through most of this – we don’t have air-conditioning but the fans and Internet access would be sorely missed!) I have been perusing the web in search of soothing, cool colored eye-candy to help create a gentler mind set.
The soft colors and happy little darlings that occupy this print are just daring you to try and not smile (it’s impossibe ~ I tried, tee-hee!).
Blue and White combine and give the eye and mind a treat of relaxation and peace.
Water, so calm and cool, always makes me want to drift away on it’s currants.
Of course, I could always fly away from the heat on wings of watercolor blue.
This darling is cool and serves as a reminder that even the cold must have the hot and vs-verse (not to mention the colors are so swoony smooth and his face is precious).
These colors are coolness and make my heart sigh.
Soft cotton and lace would be my ideal style of dress in such heat (though, naturally, I would hate to sweat in such lovely things so I’m usually in shorts and a slightly sloppy sort of shirt ~ doh!).
I hope this small tour of cool imagery helped provide a mental reprieve from the heat (goodness knows I’m still wandering about cyberland and praying for a breeze of any kind to come in through the window).
Namaste ~ Ella
