Weekend Theme

Friday  ….. theme! Oh yes, I decided on it last night so this part is easy. The inspiration was a jigsaw puzzle and a song on the radio. This week the theme is “Starry Night”


Blue? Last week it was colours! Are you MAD? Apparently so. Where to start today? Google seemed a kickoff point with variety. I spent ages reading the wikipedia blue.
