Color Wheel of Fortune 07.23.10

It's finally Friday and because it's July 23rd, it's a special day in our family since two very important people in my life are celebrating their birthdays! So before I start my feature, I'd like to wish a very happy birthday to my "other" mother... my mother-in-law, Sandy... and my grandson, Jaxon who is turning one today! Happy Birthday - love you both and wish you a wonderful year to come!
Now, where was I... oh yes, dark rose! I saw LOTS of pinks yesterday, from pale rose to almost deep magenta and every shade in between. I did manage to narrow the selections down to three that I think were a very close match to the color sample and gave a bit of variety to the ensemble!

First up is this stunning Iridized Footed Dish from SunflowerGlassworks on Etsy. Perfectly gorgeous just as an accent piece, this would be a lovely piece to hold your potpourri, a guest towel and soaps in the bath, or even a stash of candies for visiting guests. Bowls like this have a multitude of uses and add an amazing touch of color to brighten up any decor!

At this time of year, the southern hemisphere is looking forward to its first Signs of Spring, so I thought it would be great to share this lovely print by the same name from kellydbrown for the benefit of my friends "down under" and in South America!

Delicately luminous like the shimmer of the moon, these elegant Pink Moonstone Earrings by DiamondSand feature vintage pink glass moonstone pears in brass settings dangling gracefully from oversized brass earwires. These versatile little darlings would look equally fantastic with a denim outfit or a classic formal gown!

Tomorrow we'll be taking a look at some dark blue items - some of the gemstones that come to mind are sodalite and lapis, and I know there's a lot of other lovely blues that would fit this color study! If you'd like to see a larger sample of this color or any of my other upcoming colors or themes, visit the "Be Featured" section accessible from my right sidebar. If there's something you'd like to submit from your own shop or share from your favorites, just click here to e-mail me the link and be sure to check back tomorrow to see what my final selections were!

Well, another work week down for some of us, and another weekend to look forward to! Hope yours gets off to a great start!
