Caribbean Blue - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade


Usually when I’m working on a blog post or listing an item in my Indiemade shop, my Pandora station is palying on my computer.  My stream has a great blend (at least to me) of classic rock, some more modern rock, some folk music and a big dose of Celtic inspired music - that's the Scots-Irish coming out in me.  Yesterday, as I was finishing up another blog, the song “Caribbean Blue” by Eithne Pádraigín Ní Bhraonáin (better known as Enya) came on.  Even though Enya sings many Celtic folk songs, some in Gaelic, with her usually heavily synthesized backdrops and multiple layers of her own voice, she is more of a New Age musician, in my humble opinion.  "Caribbean Blue" was a mega-hit for her, and rightly so.  I find her music very relaxing and always pause and enjoy the minutes when songs of hers show up in the Pandora rotation.  Sometimes I'll even plug in one of her CDs and totally bliss out.  To see the amazingly beautiful video of the song click here: CARIBBEAN BLUE 


Inspired by the Enya song, this week’s Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade is titled “Caribbean Blue.”  When I googled “caribbean blue color,” however, there seems to be no definitive agreement on just what the color is.  So I chose this photo:

Lovely selections in blue.


Tweeted and pinned. One item wouldn't show pic to pin


Such a peaceful color!

I love Enya and I love this shade of blue. The first time I went to the Caribbean was just to see water that color! I was not disappointed! Thanks for bringing back beautiful memories of the Caribbean waters! All these selections are perfect! Sharing this.

Captivating Caribbean Blue

There aren't enough superlatives to describe this color. I think if there was a universal color that everyone likes, this would be it. Thank you so much for including my necklace.

Beautiful Blues!

Thanks so much for including Keli and our beachy blue dog bandana - it's one of our favorites.

Shared the post, pinned and tweeted selected items.

Sorry I'm late! Beautiful

Sorry I'm late!
Beautiful blues, Catherine. Thank you for including my necklace. Shared.

I bet I'd love your music rotation...sounds like me. I do know that I love these soothing Caribbean blue handmade selections. Any one would make a fabulous gift or treat for oneself. Thanks for including my chandelier earrings in this weeks collection.
