It is all about the blues…

Beach house window

This picture was taken by my neighbor Bill and he was kind enough to share it with me. The blue in the building, the blue of the water, the blue of the sky and the blue in the sailboat in the window are spectacular.

I just read Country Living which had an article that made me think of you because it was all about red, white and blue decorating.

That is a beautiful building.
