I Love: Grey

I don't think I've ever talked about how much I really love grey. I used to wear it all the time. It feels like a soft color to me when it is light and sophisticated when it's dark. And it is the color of mourning doves and my first born cat, Stanley, still kickin' (though a little slower) at 16 (84 in human years!!). And paired with teal, it's about as perfect as a color can get.

What beautiful things! And as one of those who thought Etsy shops were more crafty than anything else, it's good to see such variety ... :)

I love grey too. I usually like to pair it with purple or lavender.

"grey is my favorite color...Iiii felt so symbolic, yesterday" Grey really is my favorite color too, about 80% of my wardrobe and many, many things around me house are some hue and it was a major color in our wedding. Great minds, Erin, great minds :)

I love Gray. It goes with anything....anything. And corals and pale yellows are wonderful with it. I used to be a khaki sort of person until I realized that it really wasn't very good for my color. Now, it's GRAY.
Thanks for your comment about my cicadas. They're busting out all over.

I adore all three looks! And thanks for the links- Etsy's so big I never can manage to narrow it down!

Kathy said...

I'd never thought much of grey and teal together until I dyed some yarn using those two colours. They work so well together, as your post (and my yarn!) beautifully illustrate :) xx

I adore all of the gray finds!!! It is such a fantastic, rich color and mixes so well with other colors.

Thanks for featuring my Anna earrings...I am so very faltered!!!!
