Colour My Life…

Filed under: Thrifty Finds — Laura R @ 8:57 PM

I bet you can guess the “theme” for this thrifty posting.

 

I did not have a theme in mind when cruising the thrift store aisles.

First I found these cards. (49 cents and half off, sticker color)

It was the color wheel that convinced me.   I am a sucker for a color wheel.

Included is a booklet to help you identify your seasonal coloring.
On the back of each color card I guess you list pieces of your wardrobe.


Walk a little further and find these too cute to pass up crayon stumps.
Actually they are erasers.
I wish I had found a few different colors, but at 29 cents I was Ok with these.

And then

the book on color combinations.

 

I pretty much appreciate any Country Living publication.
So I paid a dollar for this.

 
   

 

Addressing different coordinating palettes.

 

Of course they share those wonderful pictures of the colors used in fabulous rooms.

So even though I was not looking for anything in particular or even in a certain line,  my finds seemed to suggest their own theme. 

 

I am linking up with Laura’s Penny Worthy Project  because to be educated is always a good investment,  and Selena’s Thrift Share Monday.  (I would add the buttons but my old computer is acting up again.)
And since this is about Color coordination, I am linking to Show Me How  on It’s a Blog Party where every day is a party and linky.
I have just learned about Amie and her Pinkapotamus Monday.

 

Tuesday will find us visiting Linda for Nifty Thrifty  at Coastal Charm. We hope you join us.

  3. I enjoy the serendipity of finding things in a theme even when I’m not looking for them. I remember doing ‘my colors’ and of course I’m a winter! I was told I looked good in most colors…flattery still did not get me to buy whatever they were selling. Love the country decorating book.

  6. I love all interior design and gardening books. They are timeless as every great design, both interior and exterior, repeats itself.

  7. The season colour guide is so kitsch. Here in Australia we have a great comedy series called “Kath & Kim” where they did a great little skit about having their ‘colours done’…hard to explain across the cultures…but here in ‘stralia it would be enough said if I commented, “so Kath & Kim”

  8. My mother-in-law did my colors and seasons several years ago. We had a bunch of fun with it. I love to go through Country Living and really, any decor books. 🙂

  9. Oh, I would have bought these fun treasures as well. The color wheel is a fun find! And the Country Living book, please it would have leapt into my shopping cart so fast! LOL
