Peachy Keen

"Peachy Keen" is a saying that means excellent or fine. Though peach fell out of vogue after the 1980's, it's deeper version is just beginning to make a comeback. Now it's paired with other clear colors such as aqua blue, spring green or rich purple. Here are few peachy keen items. Any peach people out there? Peach and raspberry dessert; Peach umbrellas; Peach divine heels; Peach Vintage Dresser; Peach Adirondack chair; Peach mum centerpiece; Peach Preserves; Peach and Purple tulips.

Wow - I love the peach high heeled shoe!

Love to eat peaches. Don't dislike the color peach, but I am fair and blue eyed and peach is not my color. However, the dresser is awesome and the tulips! I am "Dutch" and that must be why I adore tulips. I would think those peach unbrellas would bring a smile on a rainy day. Such a pretty umbrella. Have a great day!

Janean,
I had a whole living room in the early eighties of peach and blue. It was a nice combination :)

Just a little something from Judy said...

Thank you for the exquisite beauty that you added to my Saturday morning. My mother has always had a thing for the peach shade. She will enjoy seeing this post. Always a treat to visit this blog...always!

We would sure like to have those pink umbrellas at Leola's -- we have them hanging from our ceiling. You might want to check out my give-away & sign up. Have a great weekend. Jan

I'm not a big fan of peach but those flowers and preserves look terrific.

I might have to re-think my peach issues!

A beautiful , eye pleasing post. I remember saying "just peachy" when asked how I was. Those shoes are something!
Blessings!

Yes - peach coloured tulips and that chair!
May daughter's grad gown was peach, and she glowed. The peach jam made me long for a taste of summer in a jar.

I love the fruit and anything made of peaches, but NOT the color - yeccchhh. If you saw our bedroom walls you'd understand!! (we're moving so not repainting, but oh it's such a horrid, gramma color)

Just Breathe said...

I've never been into peach although I don't mind eating them!

Dianna said...

Nice post, Janean...and glad you are home!

Rita said...

A friend of ours gave us a big tub of peaches this year. I put up peaches till I thought that I would turn into a peach. They sure have made some good peach pies though! That dresser is absolutely beautiful! Peach was my mother's favorite color. When I see that color, I always think of her.

I am not a big fan of the color but give me a big, fat, juicy peach to bite into and I am in heaven.
