True Colours: Turquoise

Today's True Colours theme is TURQUOISE, host of this meme is BLUE.

This week's colour was going to be a struggle at the beach....no turquoise waters there! Got a nice sky shot (there's a jet-plane in there somewhere!) but all the others are objects from around the house including some of Liam's marbles (and I thought he'd lost them!), a favourite handbag, an ornamental bottle of bath oil, a hula-hoop, an infuriating puzzle and some of Alfie's rosettes. Next week....PINK

Next, some photos and videos from our walk at Findhorn yesterday.

Last, a video of Alfie doing head tilts while I wind him up! (I know, I shot it the wrong way but it's cute!) I turned the sound off as I don't like to hear my voice, but i'm saying things like....want your dinner? want chicken? (chicken sounds) wanna go walkies? beachy-beach? You get the picture!

Brilliant Turquoise selection....
Especially the marbles comment. lol

I liked the .."Silent Movies".. :-)

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Gaaaah, maybe it's me losing my marbles.....only the last video of Alf was supposed to be silent, the others had a soothing sea soundtrack and Gabbi barking at the birds! Oh well :o!

We didn't get any sound but loved the videos although we only counted three dogs in the sea! We want to go to the seaside!
You did well with your turquoise especially the sky shot we thought.
We have just been looking for Milo?

Oh, rats! We wanted to hear your voice!
I really enjoyed all the pictures. Turquoise can be tricky, can't it? Woo.
Oh... and my mom keeps a big jar of marbles in our Studio, to reassure herself she hasn't lost them. :)

Those are some great turquoise items you have. We love the walk photos, and the video is great. How cold is the water there?

What a great adventure you all had at the beach! I love rolling in the sand too especially when there is stinky seaweed lying around. You're a master at head tilting, Alfie!

Lily Hydrangea said...

Beautiful collages! I can tell you love your beagles, they're adorable.

What an eclectic assortment of turquoise stuff. It's very calming just looking at them all.

We love all your pictures, but my favorite is the video of the beagle rolling in the sand on the beach. Did he/she perhaps find a nice fishy to roll on? Maybe one that had been laying around a week or so? Oh yum, I am just getting twitchy thinking about it.

Kisses,
Stella

You are such a tease! Hope Alfie got some chicken after that neck work out.
