Doesn't the word 'turquoise' just thrill you? A Mid Century Antique myself, I can appreciate the word and the color. It hearkens me back to my childhood and images of my neighbors copper gelatin molds, gleaming on the ocean blue of their kitchen walls. The preferred color at the time was either the turquoise, (sometimes pronounced tur QUAZ by the more dramatic) or pink with gray accents. I do remember this. So when the current infatuation with all things Mid Century began, I was there. I believe it probably is some unconscious effort on my part to take a piece of childhood and reconstruct it for good. To take the essence of the 50's and 60's, recapture it, and bend it to make better memories than perhaps I was endowed with.
