Beat the Monday blues with the Monday Hues! Today's color inspiration comes from a bit of garden art I stumbled upon a few weeks back. We have a pretty back yard, so I'm definitely going to try doing something similar to this in a little corner somewhere. Possibly with a collection of rocks gathered throughout the years from places we visit. If you like the color palette, you can download it for use in all your design projects for clicking the button below. Have a great week!

Beat the Monday Blues with the Monday Hues! Today's color inspiration is the last of the 4-week vintage typewriter series. If you ever have a chance to visit Pioneertown, make sure you walk all the way towards the end of the movie set, where you will find an interesting display of vintage items, such as these typewriters, on what appears to be someone's front yard.

It's that time of the week again, we've got the blues 'cause the weekend just ended, but we're going to beat them blues together with the Monday Hues! Today we are featuring a palette of blue and charcoal drawn from a vintage Royal typewriter. When I see this palette, I envision a set of elegant wedding invitations on bright white card stock with modern calligraphy in charcoal blue ink. It also makes me think of New York City. And an elegant gala with women in gorgeous evening gowns and well groomed men in tuxes.

Have a lovely week, my friends!
