|Tribune Standard, Spring/Resort 2013|
We were shopping in one of our favorite haunts recently (we'll never tell where it is...so don't EVEN try...) when we saw it. A very square, very 1960s lemon-lime-orange houndstooth masterpiece of a chair with, drumroll please...the matching footstool. In pristine condition. We snatched it up. We had to repack the car -- meaning we had to unload everything, put the chair and footstool in, and then repack the other stuff around it somehow. Then it had to live in the car for weeks. It still doesn't have a home, but it will very soon. It's part of a top secret Blackbird project that we will reveal in the coming weeks. I can't show you the whole thing...but here's a sneak peek!
I thought at the time, "Man, those colors are fun!" But now, after looking around a bit, I've found that it's right on trend for spring. The zingy colors are everywhere, from cars:
|2013 Dodge Dart Rallye with Citrus Peel paint|
|2013 Planner from greengrass2 on Etsy|
