with halloween just passed i've got orange and browns on the brain. is it the mellow colors of autumn or have i just seen too much pumpkin and chocolate? either way etsy has a dearth of vintage treasures in those rusty tones.
autumn colors remind me of my mum. she had beautiful red hair and green eyes. do you remember when there was that trend of 'getting your colors done'? you would be assigned a season based on skin, hair and eye color. unsurprisingly mum was told she was an 'autumn' and her reference was a booklet of business card sized fabric swatches of colors that would suit her. i spent a lot of time playing with the swatches, in waiting rooms, restaurants, queues, and so i have a fond attraction to those colors...and also a fond attraction for pinking sheared scraps of fabric!
