I don’t know about you but I am really inspired by all these fruity finds and am off to design an intarsia fruity jumper 80’s style.  I used knit Piccaso and Mattise jumpers in the 80’s and I can so see the large intarsia pictures coming back…so many ideas so little  time!

Have a great weekend T x

Colourday “Blue and Green should not be seen”…or should they ?

I have been totally inspired by the bright green Spring leaves appearing against beautiful blue skies. Such an uplifting sight.

Image

I remember the saying when I was younger “Blue and green should not be seen” and started thinking as I admired the trees that they actually look really good together.

Image

Here are a few pictures I have found which make blue and green look fabulous together from fashion to interiors. If you click on the photographs they will take you to the source of each designer/website.

Colourday: Some eggcellent Easter colours.

These pictures have made me want to paint and dye some eggs, I don’t think they’l come out like the ones above but it will be a fun project with Arthur.

The handpainted eggs are believed to ward off evil spirits and protect the household.  If you click on the last picture it will take you to some more amazing photographs of the eggs being painted in East Germany.

None of the pictures belong to me and each one is linked to the original source.

Have a great Good Friday 🙂 x

Colourday Hot Pink

Because it was Valentines Day yesterday todays colour is Pink the colour of love. It is has the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white. The stronger the pink, the more passion and energy it has. Pink is also the colour of hope. Image Also it looks fab when worn! If I wear hot pink it always puts me in a good mood. Image Image Can’t wait for the spring and the trees to go this colour 🙂 Image Image Image We even had a pink sky to start the day, and I am wearing a pink cardi and bright pink tights. Have a Happy Colourday xx
