week 17 Color/Colour

Focus on life... week 17....  Well I love   COLOUR !  

But in spite of that it was a hard challenge... I initially wanted to photograph a corner in the dining room that has a bunch of Canadian paintings but it also reflects 3 windows which I discovered when I tried to photograph it! 

So onto the quilt that we bought last fall in Newfoundland
This has lots of colour... it's actually a king size quilt because the queen size one was pastel blocks and white outlines....  Love it!
(The spiders web is top left on an orange block)

A typical Newfoundland folk art painting... from the grumpy goat gallery... I think it  goes perfectly with the quilt and yes it hangs at the foot of the bed.

And yes this is a complete set of Harry Potter books... you don't know how difficult it was to get a matching set... and they don't actually match perfectly the first two were published by raintree alone and are fractionally shorter! & yes they are also in the bedroom!

After we got home from NL last fall I had to see if I could capture the quilts in beads.. my husband pointed out that all crazy quilts need to have a spiders web....

Ha, love it, hubby is pretty smart. So much inspiring colour. I have the first Harry Potter book and I confess I never got into it. I have awful suspended disbelieve skills - I don't do well with fantasy. BUT when little one is old enough I think we will read them together

Fantastic color in your bedroom! And I LOVE that folk art - that is fantastic ... as is that bead!

CraftyHope said...

Oh, so much COLOR!! I love it. From the amazingly bright quilt (I want!) to the Harry Potter books, your rooms looks like a cozy and fun place to relax.

What a fun quilt you have on your bed. Love the painting you have hanging on the wall near it.

That bedroom would make me so happy!

The painting is adorable and makes me smile.

Way cool - love this quilt!! The colors really are amazing and that painting is fabulous, as is your bead. I had no idea there was a spiders web on the quilt until I read the post,...too fun!!

Love the colours and the painting with your matching bead.

Beautiful colorful art! I would love to see that quilt in person. Your artful home looks pretty cheery to me!

Cool idea to make a bead inspired by the quilt. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent captures this week. Love them all - probably I'm most partial towards the HP books, I just love that set (and yes, we have it too - going through volume 4 with my son right now).

Alice said...

So many beautiful colors! I love the handmade quilt!!!

Beti Horvath said...

Tanya said...

All of those photos have amazing color. I love the painting. I could stare at it for hours. And the bead is just lovely and totally reminds me of a quilt.

Annette said...

Oh, that quilt is delightful! So is the painting!

Becky Pancake said...

Your quilt is beautiful and a good choice for showing color. I think it is wonderful that you captured a quilt in a bead. I may have to try that.

Very colorful and cheerful photos this week. Love the quilt - there is something about quilts that make us feel at home. The folk art painting is awesome!

Courtney said...

So colorful and happy!

Karen Williams said...

What a wonderful room to wake up in every morning! Your crazy quilt is such fun. And I'm envious of your Harry Potter books.

We have a complete set too, but the American editions all have boring brown covers. :)

I am soooo far behind, but I love this post! Your quilt is lovely, and that painting from Newfoundland is, as you said, so typical. It also reminds me of the hand-hooked rugs they do. In answer to your question on my blog, I'm originally from the interior of BC (Penticton area~18 yrs)then moved to Calgary AB (30 yrs), which I hated. The weather in AB is the worst in Canada I think. Hated it.
