If you have not figured it out already, my favorite color combination is blue and red - every shade, tint and hue. I drool over pictures on the internet of woad dyeing wishing I could try it. Well, someday.
Meanwhile I have been dyeing laces and trims for my collage packs and got some appealing shades with good old Rit dye. I love to spend a sunny summer day dyeing bits and bobs of lace and hanging them to dry on the deck cable.
Notice how blue and red are also reflected in these treasures I recently found at an antique show in Minnesota. I got each from a different vendor but wow- burgundy velvet purse, teal felt hat with burgundy flowers and a ledger book - they are perfect together!
My Etsy Shop will be teeming with Halloween and fall packs next week so stop in sometime! I am sending out my fall newsletter complete with directions for a mini Halloween banner and a favorite fall recipe, so sign up right here on my blog on the right hand side.
