Tuesday Finds: Colours

Today as I was walking home my main impression of the surroundings was grey. Grey sky, grey buildings, grey streets... As if winter isn't dark and depressing enough on its own. Even most people wore dark, muted colours. Why didn't anyone put more effort into making things look a little brighter and happier with more colour? Wouldn't that be much better?

At about this point in my musings I realised I was wearing my grey wool coat today. Sigh.

So, to try to make this bleak day seem a bit more pleasant, I have looked for colourful things for this week's Tuesday Finds.

If it's colour you want, GilBea's handpainted silk scarves are bound to do the trick. How about this gorgeous one, in different shades of blue and purple?

Perhaps green is more to your tastes? These fun fused glass hair pins in bright lime green would be just the thing you need for a smaller spot of colour. They are available from panyizsuzsi.

Representing red, we have this beautifully designed and made reversible handbag made by Ira Grant. Black and red on one side, white and pink on the other. Perfect!

As for me, I shall be sure to wear my brightest orange scarf and matching gloves tomorrow. I promise.

Great finds! I love colourful things around me, it makes such a big difference to me. I also hate winter when it's grey and gloomy, like today!
