Pink + Orange + Turquoise

April 25, 2011

A few weeks ago Scott went on a business trip to the Phillippines.  (And while he was gone my toothbrush was seriously lonely.)  And in the nine days that he was gone he was on seven different planes, four different islands, and five hotels.  Which means he took the smallest bag he could possibly take.  And he also didn’t have much room to bring home goodies. But he did find two spools of pretty crochet thread.

And they have been sitting on my desk for a while, and today I realized that the pink and the orange and the turquoise of my walls were pretty perfect together.  So I pulled out the turquoise spool from my pile of thrifted threads and a few pins of bakers twine and it might be my new summer color scheme.  You know, for all that scheming I do.

I also wanted to share this picture from a few weeks ago.  After I took the pictures of my twine for this post Creamie asked me if she could play with it.  And this is what she did.  Laid it all out just like me and then went running to grab her little camera.  The best part was her telling  the twine that it was time to smile for a picture.  I love this girl.

    A) Your husband is an absolute gem.
    B) Your child is freaking adorable.

    That is all.

    You are seriously the most awesome mom ever. I mean, look at your child. She wants to be just like you, and I can’t think of any better proof than that.

    OMG! This photo is absolutely too precious for words! (And you’re right — the pink/orange/turquoise combo is perfect. Just like your little mini-me.)

    Thanks so much for sharing your world with the rest of us!

    You are a girl after my own heart (read color scheme). Orange is my most favorite color! I painted my kitchen orange because it is my most favorite room to be in at home. The only color you are missing is yellow. Your Creamie is a doll!

    That post-pony hair is to die for. And the ‘just like mommy does’ photo of the mini photographer is priceless.

    Ok – I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who loved the hair!

    Apparently we aren’t the only ones who love that combo of colors. While at the pet store yesterday I discovered a whole new line of pet products in orange/brown/turquoise, my 3 favorites (and the dreaded pink). Also in baby products, but I’m a little past that now.

    I wonder if I can convince the hubby to send me yarns/threads/fabrics from all over the world while he’s on the ship? 😉
