Another Fall Color - Monarch Orange

I have been dwelling on the colors of Fall and Winter for some time now.  If you have been following me, you know that.  You also know how silly I think the names the industry uses for colors are.  This one is a slight exception.  At least it is close.  I do think of orange when I hear the word "monarch".  It almost surprises me that they didn't connect it with purple for royalty though.

In the past, orange has never been one of my favorite colors.  I think I associate it with the 60's and 70's when everything around me seemed to be orange stripes or paisley prints!  OMG - what were we thinking?  Thankfully, those days are behind us.  The oranges of today are a bit more tolerable.  Some of them are down right beautiful.  It was simple to make up a collection of handmade gift ideas for the fashion conscious buyer.  Here's a peek at my choices.  No two are alike and all of them are beautiful!

Orange is such a fantastic color. It is bold and happy! I love the clementine shawl.
