Watching the Emmys (as I bounce around the channels) it was nice to see many of the women dressed tastefully with a nod to old Hollywood glamour.  There was a large range of red colors that looked lovely on almost everyone.

Speaking of color, here are some of Pantone's previous selections for color of the year:

Apparently the nine palettes for 2015 are: Style-Setting, Abstractions, Botanicum, Zensations, Urban Jungle, Tinted Medley, Past Traces, Serendipity and Spontaneity.
I am thinking a grayish-green would fall into these categories - it would probably not be my cup of tea but I could certainly see it in eye shadows & would give it a try.

The love of my life celebrated his 9th birthday recently and this child just gets sweeter with every passing day.  We made a Jurassic Park birthday cake & little sister 'helped'!
(white t-shirts are great for baking because you can bleach the frosting out!)

Wishing you good times & happy memories........

Linking up with these fabulous bloggers here
