  1. Oh such a beautiful color combination of the raw sienna of the violin with the dark velvet blue:)

  2. Great shots! What a gorgeous blue!
    This takes me back quite a few years. Both my kids played violin in school. :)

  5. What a stunning blue velvet case. I love both of the photos.

    I noticed your comment on Limar's hydrangeas photos about how your blue ones won't stay blue. Did you know that you can actually sometimes change the colors from pink to blue and blue to pink by atering the pH of your soil? My mother used to do it frequently. I found a link on line that gives tips for doing this. Actually, it is evidently easier to change to blue than it is to pink so if you truly would like blue hydrangeas it should be worth trying. Here it is: http://www.hydrangeashydrangeas.com/colorchange.html

    Good luck!

  8. This takes me back to the days when my daughter tried so hard to master learning the violin. It's amazing how the violin can sound so beautiful and so awful. :-)

  9. Thank you folks :-)
    All four of our children learnt to play the violin. Bethan was the youngest and quite a gifted violinist as a child. She hasn't touched her violin since she was 18 - maybe she will again, one day.
    Kathy, thank you for the link on hydrangeas. I did know about changing the colour but have been too idle to try it. I will now :-)

  11. Violins are such beautiful instruments. Amazing how some people can create wonderful music using such a 'simple' concept. A wooden box with some strings ;-)

  12. I love how the lining is blue but it's also a feeling with a violin that can be sometimes blue ...the melancholy music that reaches out and grips the soul like no other instrument can. Great choice.
