Delightful Discoveries - It's Electrifying! 08.28.10

No dear, I did not make up the name Electric Indigo - that's actually the name assigned to the hex code of the color in today's feature! Yes dear, it is purple... but, I would have to say it is definitely electrifying! An amazing shade of brilliant purple that's sure to create an impression wherever it appears. I do have a confession to make - and a bone to pick... I selected ALL of today's featured items because I didn't receive one single nomination! Which at first had me a little concerned, because I thought "oh my god, there's just not going to be anything in this color out there!" Well, let me tell ya - this was probably one of the easiest colors to track down that I've probably ever featured! So now I just have to decide if everyone really has a secret loathing of this color, or you've all simply lost interest in this little forays into the world of handmade and vintage. It's okay, {sniffling} I can take it, be honest... heck, leave an anonymous comment if you'd like and let me know what you're thinking!

I do hope you have some eye protection with you, because you're about to be dazzled by color, and blinded by brilliance... here are my selections for today!

After two days in a row of bright colors though, we're going to turn it down a bit with this earthy deep olive green. Now I expect to see a lot of nominations of items, since it's getting to be that time of year when autumn colors like this should be listing like crazy!
