Hopefully, Blenko will produce more of these even though Orchid is not in the catalog.

This is an example of the “new” Orchid.   Orchid is not a catalog color for 2012 but it is in the catalog for 2013/2014.   This is the new Amethyst color that Blenko is making for 2013 and it is cased in Crystal so it is technically Orchid.

Day 447-Violet

Violet has been retired (again) and replaced in 2013 with a reformulated Amethyst, so here is one last look at Violet.

Day 446-Peacock

I think that this is probably the shade of Peacock that went to the PBS donors.  It is not too light and not too dark.

Day 445-Topaz

Blenko Water Bottle Topaz

Okay, here is another Topaz water bottle that I have purchased (and probably didn’t need to.)  I have spoken privately with many of you and I have unsolicited confessions from you that you are also addicted to certain colors.  Words like, “I have a hard time not bidding on …………. or I am a sucker for the color …………., but as I have mentioned before, I am really not that big of a fan of Topaz but lately I can’t seem to not buy the light colored ones.  (Maybe, I am bidding and no one else is???)  I just need to repeat the mantra, “Topaz is the new Sea Green.”  Also the label looks new and is in the wrong place.

Day 444-Amethyst

Blenko Water Bottle Amethyst

This is from the early days of Amethyst, 1942 through 1957.  Even if you don’t especially like purple you have to admit this is a great looking water bottle.

Day 443-Ice Blue

This is an older example of Ice Blue from 1951, 1952 or 1953.  Blenko now makes a reformulated Ice Blue which is Turquoise encased in Crystal.
