making everyday beautiful : warm & cool contrast

Hello, hello! Happy Tuesday... !

Yes, I'm a day late with this weeks gorgeous collection from 'making everyday beautiful'... sorry my dears! But every minute of yesterday was packed with lots of fun crochet related work, including the first festive order of the year... eep! I know. I know. I will hold off on using the 'C' word until next month, but as soon as that rolls around I will have to start talking about some 'C' fairs I have coming up.

Anyhow, I have had a lot of fun curating this weeks favourites from our fabulous wee Flickr group. On looking at the front page this morning I noticed a strong contrast between warm and cool tones. Lots of warm oranges, reds and pinks next to cool greys, blues and black. A typically autumn combination if you think orange and red trees against watery blue skies, see Jo Sanderson Mann's photo for a perfect example of autumn at it's most inspiring!

  1. STUNNING embroidery in the top right corner ... I would looooove to have a picture like that, I mean i could get a needle and thread out, but it would take me years and even then it probably wouldn't be a lovely!

  2. Thanks for sharing, Emma! I always enjoy these posts.
