This month's Pretty Palette was based more on an idea than a thing. The idea of WabiSabi.
Erin picked out some rusty and worn gears and metal parts as inspiration and used them as the basis for the color palette of copper and turquoise. I found my beads this month at Joann's under the Bliss Beads label by Halcraft. I started with the same color palette. But I wasn't happy...
The photos are taken on a 30 year old wooden chair that my father-in-law made for my husband. It's a re-creation of the chairs that were at the public pool of our town. My husband and I grew up swimming almost daily at the pool in the summer. The chair has been outside in the elements 365 days a year. The chair is worn and weathered and rusty and creaking but it still works. When you sit you are transported to a simpler time.
I sit on it everyday to have my coffee in the morning, outside with my dogs.
