Blue Period - A Snap, A Set , and A Song

My blogging friend, Thea, has started a new blog called A Snap, A Set, and A Song which indulges my love of pictures, fashion and music. Thanks Thea, you're so clever!

This weeks theme is Blue. Straight away I thought of Picasso's Blue Period in the early 1900s, and while most of his paintings from this time are downright depressing, this one is not so bad.

Leaning Harlequin

My fave era at the moment (and possibly forever) is art deco, so I have created an art deco influenced look that I would wear to church in autumn/winter. (I remember now why I don't do polyvore often - because it takes me ages to search through all the lovely choices!)

Now for a song. The song actually came to me before I thought of Picasso, but of course the two are directly linked. I don't know if many people will know this band, The Smithereens, or the song, Blue Period, but if you wait until the second verse Belinda Carlisle joins in, and we all know her (well, those of us who grew up in the 80s do, lol!)

I love the pretty harmonies:


If you want to play along with us, Thea lets us know the theme on a Monday, and we post on Thursdays.

It's not too late! xx
