the subject matters your own choice.  Holiday decor......tablesettings........thrifty finds........ATC's......vintage
heirlooms.......creations for everyday or the holidays......If it's red or green or a combo of both show it off!

It's time again for the Cottage Colors Party. Octobers Color is Aqua...now you may wonder why....but have you noticed the sunsets of fall are filled with reds, lavenders, aquas, golds.... a glorious warmth. It is also this years 'color', so if you need a little color perspective check out this sight for a whole spectrum of Aqua/Blue Green. When you think of Sea Glass or Turquoise or the waters of Bermuda....who can forget the classic 50's color combo of Black and Aqua.
Can't wait too see your collections and creations!

It's Time For..................................

The summery Cottage Color Party!


Yes, I know It's a couple days late...sorry. I've been having some trouble with my back..can't sit long..can't stand long...laying down is ok, but trying to move...yowza. Caused me to lose track of time.
Thanks to those who inquired!

The color August is ORANGE. Orange is that saucy little color that adds a little heat without making it too hot. The color orange is said to stimulate activity........maybe that's why the shades of orange fill vintage decor books and magazines for the color to use in rec rooms and family rooms of the 60's and 70's. It is also supposed to stimulate appitite too.....I suppose that's why Institutions, Schools, and Hospitals used those shades in their caferterias back then too. Orange also encourages socialization...uh.....I guess that's why peaches and oranges were used so much in decorating on shows in the 70's and 80's. Orange is the seventh most popular color among Americans. Orange is considered jovial, warm, and energetic,
It can be forceful, but is exuberant. It is associated with fruitfulness, adventure, vigor and wholesomeness.
It's the color you either love or hate. So,  let's see those shades and hues of orange in your garden.......home....vintage collections......or even your vintage wardrobe!
Remember this is a week long party so stop by often to check out new posts!

The original plan of this party was to do this with the change of each season, but the spring party--well it was still cold in many parts of the country, so the party was too early. Then we got hit with the opposite, blazing heat!

So with that being said....we know many of you have been shooting pics of your lovely gardens this summer, so why not show them off? And be thinking ahead to the fall party which will happen in October too.

Here are the simple rules.....
Post the party badge below on your blog.

tinypic
Copy the code below


1.  Snap some great photos and do a blog post on your blog.

2. Post your *permalink from your blog to the linky here to share.
*permalink is the URL to the actual post--not just your blog. You can find this after you publish your post, click "view post" instead of "view blog". then copy and paste the URL address in the link box.

3. Linking will be open until August 31st, so you have lots of time.

How about showin you collection of Jadite, or dicontinued pattern of 70's Corelle.
Of course there is the Easter grass springin up all over in fields and yards. Maybe you have a painting of a Springy landscape? There is always enough time to show off those St Patrick decor you haven't put away yet, or maybe, you've been working on a green creation. Whatever it is...we'd love to see it. Monday, tomorrow, kicks off the Cottage Colors Party and runs all week so come it's your, or really our lucky week!!

The Linky is up and running. It's easy to use. After you have "published" your Cottage Color post on your blog, stop by Etsy Cottage Style and put your name and the permalink to your post into the Linky sign up box.




What is a permalink? A permalink is the direct link to your post, as opposed to your general blog address. When someone visits Etsy Cottage Style during the week and clicks on your link, they will be taken directly to your Cottage Color post instead of having to search through your most recent posts to find it.



There are two ways to get your permalink. One way is to click on the title of your Cottage Color post, then right click on the URL address showing in the address field at the top and select Copy. Then paste this link into Linky which will be available here. Click on "Enter" and you are all done! You will see your permalink posted. :-) Or, another way to add your link for Linky is to right click on the title of your Cottage Color post, select "copy shortcut" and then paste this link into the URL box on the Linky sign-up.


Please remember this is a blog get-together to share vintage finds, collections, or how you utilize vintage items in your designs. Selling sites will be removed. Selling sites are welcome every first Monday of the month at Market Mondays

 January Color Of The Month Is Blue
When you think of the color blue, do you think of a robin's egg? An azure blue sea, a clear blue sky, or the icy blues of a wintery landscape?  Well, let's see your true blue examples. Flow Blue China, Pyrex, Sapphire Jewelry, Blue Chintz Pillows, Blue Boy Print.........as always you all have some great ideas of your own.

The new Cottage Colors Party!

Okay everyone get ready for a new monthly Blog party!
Each month has a color associated with it just like a birthstone or flower,so inspired by the possibilities, we thought it'd be fun to have a party where we showoff our vintage finds or creations in monthly color catagories.
This Monday will kick off the blog get-together and every 4th Monday of each month thereafter.
January's Color of the Month is Blue so as usual get your photos out and get ready to post your favorite blues.
