summer colors


Last time I did a pinterest roundup winter was still desperately hanging on, and it was obviously affecting my mood.  But it seems as if joyous summer colors have finally seeped their way into my subconscious.  Amazing how the weather and the seasons can affect us even in the way we are attracted to color and texture. 

As addicted as I am to pinterest, sometimes I forget to go back and actually look at what I've been obsessively pinning.  When I finally do it feels like I've found treasure; I'm like a magpie admiring all the shiny bits in my nest.  This time around I was so delighted to find all the pops of pink and fresh green in my collection!

Have you noticed any trends in your own image collecting lately?

  1. Oh I am so bad at pinterest. I did it for about a night and never revisited. I don't seem to have the time to concentrate on it.

    Some lovely fresh images there - softer than I would have imagined - pretty pink lips and florals. Well I never.

    1. Just trying to keep you on your toes Sue! Sometimes my girlie softer side gets a bit neglected, but I swear I have one :). Totally feeling the pink lipstick right now. And I can imagine that if I weren't so addicted to pinterest I would have a lot more spare time on my hands, so I suppose, if you didn't get sucked in, you can consider yourself lucky in a way.

    2. I think we all have a girly side (even the most tomboy of us).

  2. That's a very good thing to notice! I don't use pinterest for this but tumblr, and it's true that the images I reblog or post change with the time of the year. These days, there is a lot of blue sky and turquoise sea, fresh drinks and fruit, olives and lavender. Summer has a hint of Provence for me!

    1. I never could really get used to tumblr, and it drives me a little crazy the way images get reblogged endlessly and it's so hard to find the original source, but it is true that it's a beautiful way to create a sort of virtual scrapbook of inspiration. I'm going to have to head over to yours and check it out!
