This winter is so gray around here--dreary skies, damp chill air, yellowed grass peeking through the meager patches of dirty snow. Blah. All I want is some brightness, something to bring a little zing of happy color. This is where I am at this winter. So, these are the projects I have to offer up and share--every single one with pops of color or just outright color. A little something I could make that would give me a little smile when I reach for it--like those stripey-handled thrifted wooden spoons, or those thumbtacks spray-painted to look like Italian tacks, or the bright patch of color on those otherwise gray tights. Nice. Happy. Enjoy.
