Over The Rainbow For Color.

Ziggy the Wiener Dog Plush Dachshund

Color! Hot Dog!

Target introduced their new Missoni collection yesterday. The stores were jammed with people buying up the now affordable designerwares. Chevrons all over the place. I am all for Chevrons, in fact I love 'em, but the other thing that draws me to the Italian design house is the explosion of color.  So in the spirit of Missioni, here are some of my favorite colorful pieces I've found on etsy recently.

How about this little french man........just loving his daring red and chartreuse outfit. He's hipper than hip.

Groovalicious is the only word for these boots.  Dang, now where'd I leave my disco ball?

Good things come in small packages. So do chevrons.

Charlie was The Man, before Missoni became hip. Maybe Missoni copied his style.

Finally, two of my own digital illustrations. The first was included in a couple of Missoni inspired treasuries yesterday here and here.

And the second........Chevron V. Circles. I am not trying to breaking up this fight.

So, if you are looking for a little Missoni inspiration, Target doesn't have a corner on that market.  Our fellow etsy shop owners have plenty of color and chevrons to offer. There's LOTS of happy to be had. 

Please support these independent artists and vintage purveyors by visiting their shops. You won't believe what you can find. 

Have a wonderful midweek kind of day.  The sun is shining here, and I will be getting in the pool again later. It was heavenly last night. 

See you on the flip side.
