The last few days have been A Sign Of What's To Come: grey skies, blustery winds, rain. The leaves are past their prime. The gardens have stopped their blooming. The bleak months are on their way.
Time to add some color!
A couple of weeks ago, Margene showed us her new Keens. Bright, colorful, happy feet!
I have the same shoes. . . only mine are in a different color scheme.
It's such fun to look down at your feet and smile at the riot of pattern!
Personally, I'm a fool for navy and white ticking stripe. That's what sold me on these shoes!
Even on a gloomy, dark day . . . you can get a blast of color from your feet.
In mid-September, Target launched its Missoni for Target line. Cool Missoni stuff . . . at Target prices. I didn't get there in time. By the time I arrived (the day after The Launch), nothing was left. So. Imagine my surprise when I stopped by Target last week for some essentials. . .
and found this. . .
A full month after The Launch, there was a lonely rack of Missoni merchandise. Not on clearance. But there all the same!
I bought a blouse (that is surprisingly well-made, although the buttons are really cheap-looking and need to be replaced) and this cute little knit bag.
There is nothing like Missoni to bring in a blast of color!
And then, there is this. . .
a cute little baby set I finished up as a gift for a former co-worker who is having her first baby (a girl) next month.
A perfect blast of color for a gloomy day. (Ravelry details here.)
Enjoy the weekend! Add some color ... whatever you're doing.
