am i blue

"There'll be food on the table tonight

There'll be pay in your pocket tonight

Kelly Wearstler Spring 2012 RTW

My gut is wrenched out it is crunched up and broken

My life that is lived is no more than a token

Who'll strike the flint upon the stone and tell me why?

If I yell out at night there's a reply of blue silence

They blew the lights at heaven's gate and I don't know why...

My nephew Baby JJ

So I'm caught at the junction still waiting 

for medicine

My nephew Speed Racer

The sweat of my brow keeps on feeding the engine

Hope the crumbs in my pocket can keep me for another

My niece Lil Bug

And if you blue sky mining company won't
come to my rescue

If the sugar refining company won't save me

Who's gonna save me?...

My niece EJ

And some have sailed from a distant shore

And the company takes what the company

Missing these...

I love blueberries! Since I'm allergic to eggs now, I miss them in blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, lemon squares with blueberries, blueberry cheesecake ice cream.
However, I can still eat them with whipped cream.  :)

...Who's gonna save me?

We've got nothing to fear

In the end the rain comes down

Washes clean the streets of a blue sky

  7. I really love the very first outfit in this post. I love seeing mixed patterns but it always looks easier than it is in reality. The models like like they are standing in front of a wall of Lego hee hee.

    Your niece are adorbs, any girl picking flowers will look endearingly angelic.

    Yes B loved the Bento box! He was taking it to work today and the coconut spilled into the other compartments. I tried not to panic. (jk)

  8. Love that second top! It's so pretty, the colors and details are perfect. Cute nieces and nephews too!


  9. Not that I'm a guy, but I thought I should state the obvious.... you're pretty all the time! And not just because you have a pretty face. You have a pretty soul too.

  10. It's kind of awesome that your baby nephew is wearing a onesie that has one of my favorite all time movies on it!

  11. So here I am catching up on my blog time and I get a text from my hubby that reads, "If you are feeling blue, remember I love you"...well, I love blue, it's my favorite color. Love this post of yours too. Cheers, have a fabulous weekend!

  12. I simply loved the African print skirt! And your nephews and nieces are sooooo sweet! I thought your trainers were painted by you, were they?
    You always look very beautiful, fresh and enthusiastic! I love your posts!

  13. Very moving post ! I love your painting in blue. I answer your question : I did my space invader necklace myself, and a friend of mine made the robot necklace.
    Have a delighful week end !!!

  14. omg!!! your nephew is the cutest with that "the godfather" shirt!!! love him!!!!


  15. I'm loving the print on the blouses in the top pics... I can do without the acid-wash though-- I was there the first time!

    The African print is so beautiful... I wish I could add that one to my closet.

    Your nieces and nephews are darling!

  16. I love how the roller coaster pic is so tame, I bet it was taken at the beginning of the ride before you guys were screaming your heads off!

    I'm down with the blue that showing up all over runways. it's not a colour I normally wear, but I like it.

  17. blue is the color of the oceans, so its a really good color, it's freedom!!


  18. Ciao Teddi ! I love the outfits you posted, the first blue ones are amazing ! I used to avoid wearing blue years ago, now I am addicted to this color !
    Thanks for your lovely comments, house is ready now and I am gonna take pics so I can show them in a post, finally, so thanks for asking ! I am so relieved it's finished now ;)
    Really are you allergic to eggs now ? Awww, I am sorry !
