sfetsy Tuesday Treasury: Color of the Year-- Turquoise!

Well, it's official. The color gurus over at Pantone have proclaimed Turquoise to be the color of the year! Looks like sfetsians agree-- Although we're not in Miami or the Caribbean, Turquoise is a color well loved in the City by the Bay! Enjoy these turquoise picks from our talented group!

Who can resist this dynamic duo? What a great accent for a child's room, or any room in the house for that matter-- filled with brilliant turquoise and a pop of chartruese!

Wear your hair up, and put on these unique loop, hoop earrings! You're sure to get noticed!

I can just see the bowl or oranges sitting on the kitchen counter in this great turquoise infused basket. Not only is this a great green addition to your home, you'll also be happy to know it's truly San Franciscan-- as Sarah says, "The outside colorful part of the bag is made from strips of plastic cut from bags I collected from the San Francisco Legion of Honor and De Young Museums wonderful gift shop bags. "



This turquoise is all wrapped up-- like a treasure from the sea! Filled with purifying powers you'll feel energized when you wear this piece!


Tiny bubbles of turquoise, and a pendant swirled with Vanilla, Turquoise and Chocolate... looks yummy enough to eat! This necklace will wow folks at a San Francisco Symphony performance, or a quiet evening just with friends.


So long to that large handbag-- good bye achy shoulder-- Stash that cash, or that secret wish in this super-soft tiny pouch!


Here's some turquoise that's ready to go... and this jersey isn't just for bike messengers! Show everyone your pizazz with a bright bold splash of color.


As most of us know, SF is a literary town! So many great independent bookstores and caf├ęs to curl up in on a foggy day. When you pull out your book with this hip, bejeweled bookmark, it won't be long for that the fog lift away!


Aren't these little balls of turquoise great? Perfect for a night out in SoMa, hanging out with friends!


Look what's popping up from this bed... a little bit of turquoise charm!
