Good morning. I apologize for being absent lately. I think that I am finally recovering from September. I don't know about any of you but it was crazy. School starting coupled with a busy month in my Etsy shop made for an insane month.
Don't get me wrong, I am grateful. The kids are happy to be back in school. And I am thrilled to have been busy in my store.
Our home is very neutral in hue. There is a lot of white and oatmeal or sand color. I strive to make it calm and soothing. But sometimes it needs a bit of color to liven it up.
I like the color pink. But what I really love is the palest shade of pink with a hint of blue in it. I was very excited when I found this grain sack material with pink stripes through it. You don't see this color in hand loomed hemp linen too often.
I even painted a bistro chair pink once and placed it the girls' room.
This material with pink and blue stripes though it was made into a very large tote bag.
I bought this poster on Etsy a few years ago. I learned of it through Rachel Ashwell. That was before you saw every iteration imaginable splashed across everything from t-shirts to bumper stickers and hats. I have been drawn to this British war slogan ever since. I put it up above the mantle in my room as a reminder when I have months like September. :)
And I pink up some pink buds at the market whenever I can.
Have a great week
