The Sight of Blue Skies - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade - November 11, 2015


Eleonora Duse, a famous Italian actress, once said, “If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.”  My soul must be VERY alive for rejoicing over the huge blue sky here in the Borderlands.  The shades of blue in the sky change throughout the day, from daybreak to dark.  The handmade items from Indiemade artists featured here remind me of many of the shades of blue seen:
