“darker shades for Christmas”


Description from Julie Shane: I tend to avoid kelly green and cherry red at Christmas time. Just too traditional. I like the darker, muted colors.
And NO! It's not too early to be thinking about Christmas...

    I’m with you Julie. It is never too early to think about Xmas. The darker shades look very elegant together.

    :-D I like the way you think, Julie!
    And I totally agree with you about the darker shades of red and green. It’s what we use at our house too.
    Beautiful pick, rich and nostalgic!

    I’m with you! I like “Vanna” colors. :) (Vanna White has a color line of Lion Brand Yarn–all earthy colors–that I use as a gauge. My own personal color shopper) Fire engine red and Kelly green weren’t invented for Christmas. :) This is very nice!! I was also looking at those new vintage Christmas beads to do something like this but I like your idea much better!
