The ocean of beauty
Beautiful blue
Soothe me
Touch my soul
Refresh me
Roaring, soaring waves
Revitalize my spirit

Summer blue hour ~
mist looks like angels dancing

Frequently Asked Question:

Question: Do you only like the color blue?

Answer: No. We love all the colors of the rainbow! We focus on blue here because it is a color that can go well with a vast variety of hues and styles. We also believe in its power to heal, calm, and soothe. Blue can inspire healing, serenity, and peace…and we are devoted to inspiring and promoting these things in the world.

REGARDING SALES HERE AT http://www.thebluehours.etsy.com: The majority of any profits from sales goes towards our Backyard Wildlife Habitat project. We were saddened, disturbed, and disgusted by the blatant lack of environmental conservation, concern, and respect in our area and decided to do something about it on an extremely personal level. Upon purchasing our home in 2000, we worked to create a small backyard wildlife sanctuary for the dwindling wildlife in our region. Our backyard is officially certified by the National Wildlife Federation. (ID Number: 35738.) Using sustainable gardening techniques, we have been able to create a wildlife sanctuary that provides wildlife with food, water, cover, and places to raise young.

(For more information about starting your own Backyard Wildlife Habitat project, please visit: http://www.nwf.org/gardenforwildlife/create.cfm.)

We also care for the stray/feral cats near our home. All of our six cats (and all the cats that we have ever had in our lifetime) are rescued-cats. Some day, we would LOVE to have our own cat sanctuary, if we are ever financially able to do it. We are bohemians and do not have a lot; but . . . we are delighted to put what we do have where we feel it counts the most!

Peace Be With You….
