How Now Brown ...

At first glance, when I saw that Week 3 of Fede's colour challenge was brown, my heart sank. I have to admit it's not a colour that makes my heart sing.

However, I took a look at some of my children's clothing and was amazed at what I had already made in brown. Hmmm ... not such a bad colour after all - in fact, I love it.

Earlier this month I sold a jumper dress, Strawberries and Chocolate, to a young father in America for his little daughter's first birthday. I was really touched, because I don't think many fathers would dream of buying a dress for their baby - that's usually the domain of mothers and grandmothers. Anyhow, it had been at the back of my mind all month that I must make a replacement to put back in my Etsy shop and only this week the penny dropped - it's pink and brown!




So here it is, my first (and maybe only) entry in the Brown challenge.

Bring on the brown!!!!! Actually I am wearing a brown top as I sit here writing this. And one of my favourite little outfits for Kate is a little pair of brown corduroy pants with a pink top. Yep - I'm another one who loves the pink and brown combo. It's a winner :)
