Spanish Oranges

There's a color I really like, it reminds me of whitewashed walls in houses in Tuscany. Or like those tiny oranges called Clementines.

This house has those colors in the script on the front, and the back reminds me of lemons when you peel them to get to the zest.

It has the same feeling as this vintage sepia photograph.



Red Ochre.

I love those colors, on beads, or on walls. That old country rustic feeling they give.


Don't forget about the Art Bead Scene Studio Saturday post - add your reply to be in the running for a pair of pewter charms.

I love it!! I have been wanting to get some of these little pieces, it is just hard to find money these days. Keep your fingers crossed that I get some good sales so I can come shopping ;)

I am still staring at my little house charm wondering what it will become. It is sitting on my table in plain sight so that when the inspiration strikes I will be ready. I love the orange one too.
Thanks for sharing! Enjoy the day!

it is a wonderful color - and those houses are great... while always an 'earth' color person, red-orange was always one of my favorites in the crayola box...

I love the earthy colors, I have to watch it or everything I make will go that direction - I need more greens and blues to spice things up. Thanks, friends, for the kind words.
