Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!
A suntanned neutral, Toasted Almond offers comforting warmth and is indicative of a spontaneous spring, summer feeling. Timeless and versatile, Toasted Almond is an organic shade that speaks to authenticity and all that is natural.
Members of the EtsyChristmasinJuly Team have many Toasted Almond items in their shops! Here are a few!
Becky from LollysCubbyHole has so much in her shop that is considered a neutral she doesn’t know where to begin! Let’s start with her ruffled burlap table runner, with a shabby cottage feel. Unbleached muslin ruffles, in ivory hues, hand rolled roses in burlap, muslin & linen like fabric showcase this rustic table runner along with a scattering of buttons. A statement piece for your special event, showcase your Cake & Dessert or Guest Sign In Table.
Amy Spock from BeadsandThreadsbyAmy tells us that her kitchen is different colors of black and tan, so she created this little gem for herself. Loved it, so she decided to list it. The chickadee is one of her favorite little birds….they are darling!
Nautico Creations from NauticoCreations shares that this chick’s spotted shell is a beautiful color of toasted almond and makes a nice neutral for your kitchen. The whimsical design was chosen for the shop by her mom because it made her laugh. The hot pad includes special batting to protect your table from heat, just as the shell is protecting this chick from the elements.
msmadmax from madmaxshop lets us know that appropriate for everyday wear, this toasted almond colored pleated skirt accented with an eggplant square grid pattern along with coco colored embellishments is the perfect casual piece. Cool and breezy rayon fabric with an elasticized waist band for added comfort and deep side pockets for carrying those special found treasures from your travels – by Paul Ropp.
Kristy Jo from KrystalKlarityBeads shares this Succor Creek Jasper Leaf Pendant is a Toasted Almond color, hand carved and simple design. Kristy Jo may end up using this in something if it does not sell right away as she can see the potential despite a simplistic design. Sometimes simplicity is refreshing!
Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals likes the neutral colors for accessories because they go with almost anything. And they are great for layering with other colorful jewelry. These picture jasper beads are the perfect match for Pantone’s color Toasted Almond.
Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns feels that this is a tricky colour – she thinks this ring is perfect! This toasted almond chunky ceramic rose ring is handmade and glazed with a beautiful glossy glaze, it is designed to accentuate the detail of this piece of statement jewellery.
Sue and Misty from shabbyshopgirls have this wonderful vintage edition cookbook from Woman’s Home Companion, which dates back to 1945 during the war and has a rare postscript explaining the food rationing of the times and different recipes to try using ingredients that were available. Sugar was hard to come by, so many recipes in this book used other ways to sweeten food without the precious use of sugar. This book’s cover comes in a shade of toasted almond! Perfect for this years trending colors!
Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital mentions that someone suggested some beige, neutral tones as new designs in her shop, so this is what she came up with. Sherri added just a bit of pale dusty pink and pale green which she likes. Some of the designs are more textured than others.
Patricia and Rebecca from northandsouthshabby love the shabby look all the items we have collected for their shop, but the history behind each piece, makes them all the more special.This holds true for this item as well. Sitting among cast off collections, and discarded memories in a thrift shop, this plaque caught their eye. The beautiful Madonna and child intrigued us, as well as the unique look of the material from which it was made. Patricia and Rebecca soon discovered that it was made from volcanic ash collected after the eruption of Mt Pinatubo in the Philippines which occurred in 1991. Their research located other volcanic ash pieces from the same year, but they could not find another plaque like this one. Perhaps they still grace the walls of other homes. They are just glad they found this one!
