Delightful Discoveries - Oh Boy! Just Like Koi! 12.14.10

For a bunch of you, it's wintertime and in light of the major snowstorm that just went thru the eastern half of the US and some of the rough weather that's been hitting Europe, I have a feeling that a little bit of bright and cheery color may be just the trick for lifting your spirits a little.

Whenever I see orange and aqua together, my mind conjures up visions of brightly colored koi swimming lazily in aqua blue waters reflecting the delightful color of a sunny, summery day. If that doesn't warm you up and get you out of winter doldrums, I don't know what will. Well, ok, maybe Lola and Sonya could do it all by themselves, but I've brought in some back ups to help them out, just in case you need a mega-dose of this complementary color combo! Welcome to Lola and Sonya and their wonderful showcase of tangerine and aqua fantasies!

Awesome, aren't they? Like sunlight streaming through a break in the clouds on a dreary day! Bold, bright, beautiful, and decidedly cheery!

The key to your delights tomorrow will be... keys! There's a lot of vintage inspired goodness that utilizes keys, as well as steampunk and goth and noir and all those genres of jewelry and decor items, but there's some other crafty goodies that make use of the key theme too. Be sure to stop by and check them out!

I'm hoping it's a sunny day for you all - if not outside in the weather, then at least inside, in your hearts and homes! See you then!
