Folksy Friday - Turquoise!

Pantone LLC, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, announced PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, an inviting, luminous hue, as the color of the year for 2010!

Turquoise is a color that most people respond to positively. It is universally flattering, has appeal for men and women, and translates easily to fashion and interiors. It makes a statement that can look elegant and dressy in fine silk and gemstones, or casual and fun in cotton and athletic apparel. Because of its versatility, Turquoise is a great accent color in jewelry, purses, shoes, hair accessories and even nail polish.

So, here are my lovely turquoise finds from these Folksy shops!
