The Colors of Marathon Key

Happy New Year's Eve!

Believe it or not we are still on vacation for another week! When we vacation, we vacation!

It's been an extra special vacay for me! My phone hasn't worked since before we left! It looks like I won't be getting a new one until I get home! Every Sprint store in the middle and upper keys has gone out of business. It's nice to enjoy the view (unlike mama that is sitting next to me obsessing over words with friends) :)

Here are a couple pictures of stuff I found pretty cool. I'm not sure what it is about this place, but the colors are 20 times brighter and sharper. I don't know, maybe it's all in my stress free head!

 I love these colors together! Orange and turquoise. I'm thinking I need to use these in a 2013 project! This might be the colors of my year!
I love buoys and pirates. The "used" buoys that wash up on shore always have such neat and unique color/designs.  Wouldn't these (a little cleaned up) look super cute in a buoys room. Get it boys/buoys. I'll be here all week! ha
I also love this color of lime green with turquoise. I've always loved lime green. (I have always been called "crazy" for doing so!) The lantern with red would go perfect in our house! I'm going to be on the hunt for something similar to that next year!
This is the fish I wish I caught! I think the fish around here hide from me! Or they could just be ignoring me. What I do know is I can't catch anything! Once again, this fish has the amazing blue colors, I can't get enough of!  The yellow and orange add a lot to the blues/greens/blue greens.  Yep! I might be a little obsessed!


I thought this door was super cool! I love a good beat up wood door. I like the stain glass above the door and the square window. I think it rocks because a square window something you don't normally see. 

 Mama took this picture. I love it. The colors are a perfect light blue palate! I told mama she needs to paint her bathroom and have this printed and hanging in it. Can you say, relaxing!

These are old lobster traps! I really want to take some home with me. To bad AirTran has the one carry-on only rule!  Again we have the blue and turquoise colors. I think the color and the wood look pretty awesome! What if we added orange to this? Do you think it would work?

These two pictures are of an old wooden boat we found at happy hour. I love the chippiness of the oar. It makes a beautiful picture. Although, I can't help but think if I used it, I would have splinters!

**** Side noteA couple of drinks and mama and I become professionals (photographers and models). Because I love you, I'll spare you those pictures! :)


I L.O.V.E. this picture! The are re-vamping this hotel in Key Colony (about time). The only thing that makes me sad, is the scaffolding in picture. I guess you kinda have to look to see it! I would still love to frame this. 

 The color of the sunrise. It really doesn't get better than these colors. Orange,yellow,blue,white. It's a painting that only mother nature can make!



The sunset is just as beautiful as the sunrise, but seems to have more pink in it. I love silhouette of the palm tree in black. Maybe black furniture, with colors of the sunset?! Just a thought.


This picture was taking with a heavy heart. The flag was flying half staff for the CT shooting victims. What makes this picture so great is that it's honoring the victims, yet was peaceful and beautiful. This picture once again reminds me how grateful/blessed I am to  be an American. (Opps got deep there)




 These are just random pictures of the beach and our condo. Of course, the tan,green, and blue look really pretty together. My bedroom is green,orange, and tan. I think this year, I'm going to figure out ways to add blues. (Of course without painting the walls. I hate painting walls!)





"CoCo, CoCo, I feel empty without you!" This is the view from my chair, and as you can hear (read) is calling my name! Not a bad way to spend two weeks! 

I hope you all have a Happy Healthy New Years Eve. Be careful, be safe and may you make it til Midnight. (I might have to set an alarm!)

I can't wait to see what the new year will bring! Welcome 2013.

Love to love ya,

  1. Looks like fun. I live in South Florida, but it's always hard to take time to get out and enjoy the beauty slowly when life keeps you hopping. Glad you got to go out and photograph it for us. Love all the cool old stuff you found to take pictures of. Happy 2013!

  2. Thank you Liz. I got a new camera and I'm a little out of control!
    We have the Indiana Dunes and everyone says they are just beautiful! I only live three hours away and have never been! I'm putting it on my to do list! Happy 2013 to you too!
