MY BLUE CORAL

Talk about stunning - how gorgeous is this piece of blue coral spotted on Decorati via Domino? To me, nothing makes a more beautiful accent than an artifact from the sea.

Speaking of the sea, it's a gorgeous day here in Florida, but that's because Ike only left us with some rain and wind for a few days, courtesy of his feeder bands, but now it's clear. For those of you in Texas, yet to be visited by "Ike", YOU are in my thoughts and prayers this weekend!

I hope everyone else has a terrific weekend and I will see you back here on Monday!

That looks so pretty - especially that colour and form on the wooden background, almost as if it were a floral arrangement.

I love blue coral and have always wanted some but have never seen it for sale any where. After seeing the beautiful picture on you blog I am now on a mission because I can not live without that in my house. MB

Hi Mary Beth! Thank you for visiting and I'd love to see your blue coral when you find some!

I have been collecting shells for years and have never seen blue coral.
Glad to hear that you made it through Ike.

Hello, just saw your link from Absolutely Beatiful Things. I am curious: how do you justify taking coral out of the sea? You are killing a beautiful thing. That part is understood. Why do you want to kill something you love? You can get good replicas, as I am sure you are aware. Looking forward to your reply. Thanks.

Hello Alice,
Thanks for your comment.
That is not MY coral - (titling the post "my Blue Coral" was a play on "My Blue Heaven").I don't take things out of the sea. I said that I "saw" the coral on another site, Decorati. However, there are many pieces of coral that have washed up on beaches, disconnected from their natural habitat by nature itself, part of a natural process. These beautiful things should be enjoyed and treasured and not thrown away. That is why there is a distinct difference between removing living objects from the sea and gathering pieces that the sea has ejected and giving them a place of honor in your home. Hope you feel better and have a great week! :>)

Anne-
... and I thought you sculpted that so we could all corral around it! It looks like it would be fun to make and paint - the blue color reminds me of "denim"-
