Colour Me Happy Wednesday :: Beige

Who knew that the colour associated with 1970s bland would yield such treasures in my colour search today. To be honest I didn't hold out much hope with beige... but just look at what I found:
TOP: Badbird's Gold Fish - this one made me smile because the last two weeks the little one has brought home books about fish from the preschool library. First it was "Ugly Fish" which is not a nice story about a fish that eats all the other fish that end up in his bowl and wonders why he doesn't have any friends - I'm sure there's a moral in there somewhere. The second one was the "Unhappy Gold Fish" who is in a bowl that is way too small for him and ends up being scooted around the town by a dog!
MIDDLE: Rock Anemone by Simone Russell - there's definitely a theme developing in my choices today but I did love the organic shape of this table sculpture.
BOTTOM: Orla tea towel by Skinny Laminx. I confess I have been a fan of South African Heather Moore for quite some time now. I just love that she produces a pattern that some of us would look at and instantly think 'Orla Kiely' and she's called it orla by way of dedication. She is not trying to steal someone else's work and while I would love to vent on this topic right now I'll save it for another time.
