Dotty About...Pretty Pastels

Is it the arrival of Spring which has turned on the pastel loving fiend in me?

I don't know what has become of me lately, but I used to wince at the sight of a subdued, muted pastel colour, and now, put enough of them together, and I just can't get enough. Subdued! Pah! Delightfully lively I would now say, with expressions used such as:

  • Candy Floss

  • Sorbet

  • Sugary

  • Icing
  • I was reading an article in Country Homes & Interiors magazine about ceramics designer, Julie Pettitt who likes to incorporate all these things into her ceramics to make them look good enough to eat! They sure do!

    Here are some pastel inspirations to whet your appetite for all things peach, lemon and teal:

    Dotty About...Eurovision

    I don't know about you, but secretly I really enjoy watching Eurovision (although I have to make sure that Mr K is nestled cosy in the pub in order to actually be allowed to watch it!!).

    So on the 26th May I will be poised here on my sofa with Dixie-Dog and Chat-McBain, supporting this year's UK entry...Engelbert Humperdinck who has been dug out of retirement specially for this challenge! (And, let's admit, he will probably get further than many of the artists in recent years!). Here is his entry "Love Will Set You Free"....a first dance song in the making...hmmm it's not amazingly catchy, but Good Luck to him!
