Delightful Discoveries - SalmonChanted Evening 08.06.10

They say that including salmon twice weekly is good for your health - so consider today's feature of this enchanting color my contribution to your well being! In addition to being a tasty and healthy food fish, salmon is an awesome color that, depending on its shade, can be worn year round and compliments virtually every category of skin tone and hair color! In the home or office environment, it looks especially nice teamed with browns, provides a beautiful complement to navy blues, and can add a lovely accent to pale yellow color schemes. Think of all the way you could include this versatile and often overlooked color as you browse through my selections for today!

Perhaps you'd start off with this great shirtwaist dress from snapshotsvintage, teamed up with the new Bella bag by bayanhippo and these casual slingbacks from stpaulstreetvintage!

Whether you're feeling fun and funky, cool and classic, or just kind of middle of the road, define your attitude for the day by choosing from the many beautiful accessories that feature salmon colored components:

(l-r, top to bottom):
Mother Of Pearl Earrings from stringbeanstudios
Flower Brooch / Hair Pin from alatvian
Salmon Pink Necklace with Antique Silver Butterfly Clasp from madewithlovebykaren
Mini Salmon Steak - Sterling Silver Earrings from PetitPlat
Coral and Tan Flower with Beige Leaves Brooch from DesigningImpressions
Coral, Mauve and Raku Swirl Necklace and Bracelet Set from debbaworks

I hope you've enjoyed the salmon delights that I've served up for you today! Tomorrow I'll be here with a look at those "candles in the night" - Lighthouses! If you have some lighthouse themed items you'd like to see featured, just click here to e-mail me the link to the page of the shop where I can view it. Then stay tuned to find out if I selected your item to show off for you or your favorite shopowner!

I hope your weekend gets off to great start and that you have some fun activities planned, and maybe even SalmonChanted evenings! Take care 'til next time!

Thank you for including my salmon colored mother of pearl earrings in your blog about the color and the food salmon. I agreee that it is an over looked color and that's too bad because it looks beautiful on so many people.

I'd like to offer your blog readers10% off on any salmon colored items in my shop. Even if it just plays a supporting role.

Thanks again!
