By RetroRuth

Welcome to yet another Monday morning! This week I have some sweet paint treats to drive away those Monday blues.

I found this little lovely stashed inside of a cookbook recently, and I was very happy.

I was never a big green fan, but this picture is changing my mind.

Unfortunately, some of these scans came out a bit dark. In the brochure, they are really all pastel. Why don’t paint colors ever come out right? Oh well!

There are a lot of really gorgeous colors, but Horizon Blue, Coral and Bittersweet are some of my favorites. Oh, and of course Light Pink!

Which one (or one) do you like?

    I love “Green Carnation” and “Champagne”. And every single thing about that bedroom illustration!
