Colors of Winter : Grey, Ocean Blue, Black

Posted on February 9, 2015

Yesterday, we ventured just across the bridge from Portland to Mackworth Island to show a visiting friend the “scenic views” of Portland and Casco Bay. We didn’t take into account the impending snowstorm that was closing in and the views we promised were non-existent. Our faces, feet and fingers were frozen but even in the bitter wind and waist deep snow drifts, it was refreshing and beautiful. While most of the colors in winter are varying muted shades of grey and white, my friend Kennesaw ( remember her wedding shower? ) was wearing the perfect ocean blue hat which promoted this inspiration board of winter colors. Now onto the complimentary jewelry design! Sources (from top) : Photo by Meg Hannan / Blue Umbrella Central Park /  Paintbrush /…
