Inchie Alice Blue

Every Inchie Monday is starting for 2014. This year I will complete all 52 inchies and show off my collection at the end of the year. This year's keywords are in alphabetical order - 2 for each letter.
And so,  the first keywords for the year are Alice blue. I had no idea what it means and a bit of research revealed that it's a shade of light blue. It's called that just because Alice Roosevelt (Theodore Roosevelt's daughter) liked dressing in this colour (here is a picture of one of those dresses). Whatever. I have a candle with Alice blue flame.

Every Inchie Monday начинает свою серию на 2014 В этом году я сделаю все 52 инчика и похвастаюсь коллекцией в конце года. В этом году, ключевые слова в алфавитном порядке (английский алфавит) - 2 на каждую букву.
Итак, первое слово (или слова) в этом году - Alice blue. Я понятия не имела, что это такое и немножко расследования прояснило, что это оттенок голубого. Цвет назван так только потому, что Alice Roosevelt (дочь Theodore Roosevelt) любила одеваться в этот цвет (вот ссылка на фотографию одного из платьев). Какая разница. У меня свечка с голубым пламенем.

    1. Thank you muchly! I too had no idea with this alice blue. That's why I love Every Inchie Monday - it combines language and miniatures. It's lil doing a crossword or playing trivial pursuit, only better. Now I know what alice blue is and i can show off as if I'm an expert :)

    1. Спасибо! Муж, всё муж. У нас так - я говорю ему тему и условия задания, он бросает идею-молнию. А как исполнить - это уже моя проблема.

  6. Зоя, у меня сразу пошла ассоциация с голубой розой - так же необычно. А еще в Советском Союзе был детский фильм "Не покидай" - там была голубая роза, аромат которой раскрывал душу человека и заставлял говорить правду). Спасибо за воспоминания!

  7. And I thought the title had something to do with Alice in Wonderland... Everyday you learn something new! Anyway, I think your idea is great and I am looking forward to seeing with what you'll manage to come up with all 52 weeks from now!

    Hugs!

  10. Now I can see that I will have to do much more homework before I do these Inchies. I went for Alice in Wonderland too. Tricky, aren't they? Well, I love the quilling on yours and the education :)
