colour palette : vintage crafting

colour palette : vintage crafting | Emma Lamb

I think this has to be my most favourite mosaic and palette yet, I just adore this riot of vintage colour - goldenrod, teal, olive, beige, red, ochre, granny knicker pink (as it shall forever now be known!) and soft cream.

Oh, and how gorgeous is Sophie's wee vintage button wall collage!? I think I may need to raid my button jars, I wonder if I have any blu-tack squirrelled away somewhere? Hmmm, can you still buy blu-tack!? Apparently you can and they have a handy wee 'uses' list on their site ;)

Wishing you all a lovely weekend,
Emma, x
