Just a couple of pretty palettes today.
Which do you like better? With green or without?
I’ve always liked earthier palettes, always favored espresso over black, until this year. Lately, I’ve been going crazy for cool bright colors + grey and black. Think pinky-purple thistle, grape Popsicle, bright navy, plus white, cool grey fog, and black. Maybe a touch of fuchsia. Swoon. Black makes the other colors pop, of course, but so would the white. What I am crazy for is the edginess the black gives to the otherwise girly sweetness of it all. I have bits of black working into all of my upcoming projects (and I will share them if and when I ever get two hands free at the same time and start sewing again! Blogging can be done, and is being done, one-handed with baby on lap. Sewing, not so much.)
I’m not the only one in the house going gaga for black right now.
We were at Target picking out nail polish and my sweet little 3 year old Vi, given the choice of any number of pinks and purples and all sorts of colors suitable for little girls, opted for black. What can I expect, I suppose, from a girl who was reciting large portions of Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas at age 2. Lots of excitement in store, I believe, as this one gets older!
