Of course the beautiful way she photographed the placemat,...with the olives, tomatoes and....whatever that toasted cheesy looking goodness is!...didn't hurt! ^_^ I admit to being drawn in by a food photograph or two...or four. :-)) ...I digress. Food will do that to me! LOL
As I was trying to say...I really love color! And since nothing else exciting is going on around here right now...30th anniversary day arrangements not withstanding...I thought I'd share a few colorful items I'm loving right now.
Pretty, right?!....Well, somebody besides us thought so, because it's already sold this morning! :-) I guess RosellaResin is gonna have to make some more of those babies....in blue I mean. She already has others in some other colors, like brown...
I even bought some color!...Well, not 'color' per se, but I did buy something that was colorFUL! :-] ...
I bought some more colorful boxes to send my crochet jewelry to my customers in! :-) I love this shop because they have the right size boxes that I need. A lot of box shops sell just the size box that you put rings or earrings in..I have some of those too, but my brooches and necklaces are larger and need room to stretch out...room to show off a business card or two alongside of them! ^_^
Last time I got my boxes from here, I bought an even larger turquoise blue box...sorta like that fancy company's box color. You know who I mean, right?! ;-)) I'm saving that box for the customer that buys a large jewelry order, or an expensive AND large jewelry order! :-)) Just think...that blue turquoise box could be yours! ^_^
In the meantime I'm gonna save these boxes for my other babies....like this colorful refashioned brooch ...
Oh yeah! It's got color baby!! :-)
...and an interesting button.....
...and a bar pin on the back...And a square heart dangle...
It's one of the brooch projects I'm refashioning in my shop these days. I'm turning some of my bigger chunkier brooches into keychains, and the larger, but more interesting ones, into pinback brooches, for wearing on coats and things like that, for the Fall. As long as people aren't afraid of color, I think they'll be okay. :-]
Have I told you "Mr. Color,...
...I love you more than ice cream!" :-)
Don't get me wrong, I love things that aren't all full of color too! In fact, I'm in love with these two items right now as well...
"Have I told you, Mr. Black and White, that I love you more than...
Do you see the theme here?!...Color...and a girl trying to stop eating ice cream and cookies for a few days, to make room for all of the cake she's gonna eat on her 30th anniversary! ^_^ Have a colorful day, everybody! :-)
