A new year and new fashion trends. I've been thinking a lot about what I want for 2011 and as a crafter and lover of handmade my thoughts go towards style and fashion and home decor. So here are my top must haves for 2011. I hope you enjoy them!
Hedgehogs. Owls are so 2010. Foxes are so last month. Hedgehogs are where it's at.
Leaves. I adore trees and leaves and nature and I want leaves in everything. I want them in my jewelry, on my tee shirts and screen printed onto tea towels. I want leaf shaped potholders and leaf shaped soap and cards with stamped leaves. Show me the leaves!
Earthy tones with splashes of plum, green and turquoise. Grounded color palettes with pops of color taken right out of fields of wildflowers.
Earthy, spicy and musky scents. Scents of wood and forests and clean water and nutmeg and balsam.
Chunky scarves, cowls, headwraps and sweaters.
Rubber boots for children.
Clocks. Put them on everything I listed for leaves. Clocks are hot. Pocket watches are better.
Whimsy. Our lives get too bogged down in the mundane. We need some whimsical pieces to keep us fresh and feeling alive.
Copper. Is there any other metal worth wearing?
And finally, magic. I want everything I own and buy this year to be filled with a sense of magic. The magic of creativity, the magic of love, the magic of satisfaction.
May your year be filled with goodness, kindness, peace, joy and love.
