Mustard, saffron and cinnamon...

Yesterday I went shopping in Gent, needed some felt supplies urgent!
(and as you see on the picture, I definitely need more sleep and a new haircut too! :-))
I found this leather rose brooch in Veritas, couldn't resist it! Love the
color! it matches my shoes!

I looove this new fal colors and used the orange-mustard (or is it honey) in some new designs! Mustard is the new color this winter, combines perfect with aubergine, purple,lavender, lilac and sea blue!
Mustard is a color that resembles culinary mustard. It is similar to the color Flax. This color was very popular during the mid-1970s and now t is regaining popularity!!
The Mustard color is also similar to:
- the color Flax (the color of Flax seeds), also know as Goldenrod
- amber
- saffron
- cinnamon
oh, and what a bout caramel?

The tattoo beads are vintage, I bought them years ago on a thrift market in France and found them back on the bottom of an old box on my attic! I am glad they found a new life as earrings in my Etsy shop!

and a little note for my sweet blogreaders who left a comment in the previous blogpost.I feel so happy with your comments on the issues of Downsyndrome and regular public school. It fills my heart with warmth! thanks!
And such a contrast with the radionews I heard yesterday where 70% of the radio listeners (Studio Brussel) voted for 'no kids with down in the regular schools'.

I really would like to congratulate for all your beautiful works. I discovered you on Etsy first and then checked always your blog.
I'd like to make my things as yours but it's so difficult in Italy to get the stuff you seems here that silver and gold are the only colors/materials...

Thank you so much for sharing!

It's such a bummer about the radio interview... I think people are just ignorant and scared of the unknown... It's good there is a discussion about it in your country. But still...

Big (((((hugs))))) for you and your kiddies!
