“Dazzling Blue is #1 for 2014”

Description from Granny Nancy: Well, its official "Dazzling Blue" is #1 for 2014. Its compared to cobalt blue. A shade of violet is #2 and a shade of orchid is #3.
That means those of us who adore purples will have a ball with all these shades because blues and purples often work so well together.

More colors were announced and you can see them at this website:

Ran errands today and heard from my accountant - she'll be stopping by in a day or so. I just have a few more things to do tomorrow to bring an end to the 2012 tax nightmare.

Interestingly, I have some gorgeous faceted sodalite I'm working with to make a necklace. Its a dark shade and a lapis pendant is looking so great with it. Now I need a nap.

    I love your dog Beck, everytime I see (forget if he or her) that beautiful creature I miss my Shannon who was not 100% lab but she sure played the part. But I had 16 wonderful years with her and her basset/retriever buddy, who I had for 15 years. Its been 20 years but my memories are vivid. Some day I’ll do a pick about them.
