  5. Bonjour Jo!!! What a wonderful post...and as I look to both my sides, I am so enjoying the bright colors of your world. Is that your lovely bathroom or kitchen with the blue hydrangeas, the mirror and the chandelier? Blue is a great color, and I am falling in love with it all over again; thank God for the colors of His rainbow and the ability to be moved to tears, laughter and wonderment. Beautiful post, and thank you so much for visiting me! Enjoy the week dearest, Anita
