Gray skies

Who ever said gray is a dull color was wrong. I mean there are so many shades of gray and they're all different yet beautiful. I was so lucky to found all these gray wool-blend fabrics when thrifting yesterday and look how beautiful they are!

Alright, these pictures were taken black&white but I think that just strengthens my point: there's no need for color when there's gray. Besides gray can be paired with almost any color - and both just come more beautiful. Case closed.

I am admiring this mornings gray skies - very happy weekend to you all!

We've woken to grey skies too this morning - we've had lots of dramatic skies lately. Black, silver lightning then back to glorious blue in a matter of minutes. And the colours are just wonderful.
Have a good weekend,

Mia said...

Oh, periwinkle, I am so sorry! That sounds just like our normal summer! I am sending you some sunshine from here as we've had more than enough this summer - it will get better, believe me :)

Happy weekend!

I feel the same way about white and black Mia, again there are so many shades of these and all are wonderful.I have used a monocrome theme with some of my jewellery, it goes with everything!
Have a great weekend, enjoy the BBQ,
Love Jane x

Hi, I have only just discovered how lovely grey is! Yes I have reached the age of 65 and never worn grey before but seeing as the tshirt was only £3.50 and the right size I bought it .... now it is my favourite T and I shall be looking out for this lovely colour more often now!
Have a lovely day - grey or sun!

It's so lovely to have you visiting me here, Val! I love gray, and most of the time when I go shopping for something bright/colorful/cheerful I come back with an another gray item. It´s a bit different shade at least I keep saying ;)

Have a lovely day and lot's of sunshine from Finland!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
