Shades of Gray

Mod Square Quilted Pillow Cover In Shades of Gray...


Psychological Effect: Although often thought of as a negative color, Gray is actually the color of independence and self-reliance.

"The color of truth is gray."
- Andre Gide

“Do be do be do.”
"I did it my way."
- Frank Sinatra

Have a great day!

Love this! I think gray maybe too understated most of the time - really great!

Hey Harriet said...

I'm really enjoying these fun lessons in colour! I have to admit to never being that fond of gray, but I do like your pillow cover. You manage to make gray look pretty to me! Is that your record collection I see there? I'm wondering what's lurking behind Frank...we always display our coolest ones at the front. I do anyway. The further you flip through my collection, the more embarrassing it gets! Yours is probably cool all the way through :)

Beautiful -- it has such a clean and refreshing look. You have such an eye for design - everything you do looks perfect!

Hugs to Mo!

Not to mention the perfect foil.

Victoria said...

Thanks Everyone!

Tracy, that's just a little stand that sits on top of my portable record player, and holds a few of my albums, I have other piles elsewhere. The albums behind Frank, (I adore that cover!) are...

The Best of the Ames
Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer
Charlie Bird Jazz Recital
Johnny Desmond's Guilty of Love!
and
Guide to Jazz with Louie Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Fats Walker, Fletcher Henderson, and Jelly Roll Morton.

Good stuff!

Hey V, Luv it. I think your gray next to the red makes your pillow a very cool feel. You have a very nice stipple. Looks great! Enjoy your weekend.

Love the mod...simple....also love the goals for the year...one for me in addition to those is articulation....being a better speaker and writer. Thanks for the inspiration.
