Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!

According to Pantone one of the top colors for Fall 2018 is Russet Orange.

PANTONE #16-1255
Russet Orange
This forest floor orange speaks to earthen warmth.

Members of the Etsy Christmas In July Team have been inspired by the color Russet Orange! They have created items in their shops reflecting this inspiration! Here are a few!

zizzybob from zizzybob says there are very few sellers on Etsy selling handmade quilt blocks. Most of those who are, are selling vintage blocks. I make blocks that I would use if I were making a quilt. Most of mine are appliqued, something that a lot of quilters don’t like to do. Here is a set of blocks just in time for fall.

mistycat from carolinagirlz2 said this russet orange kitty cat would be a fun item to stitch this fall. I love striped tabbies like this beauty!

Gari from BeadLoversKorner states I have very fine, flyaway hair and many times need bobby pins or hair accessories to keep the stray hairs in place. I also have tons of beads – so decided to put some beads on bobby pins! I loved them so much that I started making them to sell. These russet orange bobby pins, made with Carnelian, and perfect for fall colors and Halloween!

Nancy from EponasCrystals says perfect colors for fall in this lightweight stretchy beaded bracelet. Orange and yellow tones with bright turquoise tassels as accents.

Karen from timetalentjewels said these sweet pumpkin beads are a wonderful reminder that fall/autumn is upon us. Russet Oranges, Golds and Browns greet us this fall. Pumpkins, Gourds and Corn-husks along with the fall breezes. Bonfires and Wiener Roasts, oh what fun,we will have!

Cristal from DesignsbyCristal states fall is all about seeing the old go into hibernation and waiting for the new to come out in the spring. I love driving up to the mountains in GA and seeing the tree-lined back drop of the amazing colors that fall brings such as the many hues of orange, red, and yellow.

The russet color mixed in with the brown really makes this dog collar pop and is a great add-on for your dogs fall fashion.

Elisabeth from LizPOriginals says after thinking Fall and wishing for the leaves to change and pumpkin time I designed this cute set today!

Patricia from TheOldBarnDoor said there is such a feeling of warmth to this color (and makes me think of apple pie because I use maple syrup) Our maple trees willingly put on a show for us in the early autumn.

Roses Workshop from RosesWorkshop states this gorgeous toiletries bag combines a lovely Russet Orange with a paler tangerine in a traditional herringbone pattern. The result is a zingy, eye-catching Harris Tweed fabric that I have used for the outside of this useful washbag.

Margie from Zen Cat Pottery says Wow! The name “Russet Orange” is deceiving. When I go to the Pantone page, it’s really more of what I would call “pumpkin orange.”

This wheel-thrown ceramic spoon rest has a beautiful “Russet Orange” underside that will add a hint of color to your kitchen! This piece is hand painted and hand carved. All materials are non-toxic, food-safe and lead-free. This is also dishwasher safe.

Marie from LoveNStuff14 said my daughter Terese collected vintage hats for years and only recently has decided to thin out her collection. This is one of my favorites

Tami from HannaHerbals states this gorgeous bar of soap is scented with Patchouli, Lavender and Black Pepper, the color is from Paprika. It comes packaged in an adorable kraft jar.

Carola Bartz from CarolaBartz says I wouldn’t have called that shade of orange “russet” orange.

Orange always reminds me of the warm and earthen colors of autumn. And of pumpkins. Time spent at the pumpkin patch is one of the most beautiful things I remember doing with my family. Let the kids wear hand knitted pumpkin hats, sit on a big pumpkin surrounded by other pumpkins and you have the perfect photo shoot!

zizzybob from zizzybob says what’s party decorations without lots of candles? So what’s lots of candles without candle mats under them. I have lots to choose from but this one is especially designed for a party.

Mairi from mairidesign said a little piece of the sea for your beach themed party. These little jars, filled with Mediterranean sea glass and shells, with added metal charms, can be used to decorate your dining tables or be given as favors. Each tiny piece of sea glass was collected from beaches near Barcelona, Spain, and I certainly got lots of exercise with all that bending down to pick them up.

Matte Finish

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Matte Finish is free of shine,resulting in muted tones and colors. There are many paints,stains and such that can be used in making our items.

Przemila from CanisArtStudio says this original oil painting is painted impasto and knife technique. The image surface is matte and traces of the brush and knife are visible. It is a very noble and decorative technique. The coloring of the image is toned down. Green and shades of gray create an atmosphere of peace and rest. This modern painting will be a perfect complement to modern furniture in your living room, office or other representative interiors. The color of the frame can be chosen according to your preferences.

Nude Original Oil Painting

Sue and Misty from shabbyshopgirls said the 1960s and 70’s brought a wave of shiny metal and plastics into the home and workplace. Prior to that, many objects were natural or flat finish painted wood. These charming wooden snack plates from the 1940s were painted in pastel colors and used in the home or taken on fancy picnics. We love the shape and calming color palette of these highly collectible plates!

Set of 4 vintage wood snack trays

spoiledfelines1 from SpoiledFelinesArt states all of the items in our shop, whether burned, carved, or painted, are finished using a matte sealant. The reason that we use a matte sealant rather than a glossy one is that we want the focus to be on the natural highs and lows of the wood, and a matte finish achieves that goal. I chose to showcase the hand burned owl plaque to illustrate the beauty of that can be achieved when using matte sealant on natural wood!

Mairi from mairidesign says the Mediterranean Sea finished off this piece of teal green glass to a perfect matte finish. I collected this piece of glass from a beach near Barcelona and chose it to be my first item of jewelry made from my beloved sea glass collection. Did you know that sea glass is also known as Mermaid’s Tears? So beautiful! Click the photo to read more about the legend of Neptune and the Mermaid.

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!

According to Pantone one of the top colors for Fall 2018 is Valiant Poppy.

PANTONE 18-1549
Valiant Poppy
Brave and outgoing red shade effusive in its allure
Members of the Etsy Christmas In July Team have been inspired by the color Valiant Poppy! They have created items in their shops reflecting this inspiration! Here are a few!

Przemila K fromCanisArtStudio says:

Painted clock – A charming Yorkie painted on a clock face. Traditionally Yorkshire Terriers are presented during dog shows on red velvet cushions. So I painted this cute dog on a “Valiant Poppies” background. The red color corresponds to the cheerful and energetic temperament of this dog. Golden additions: roof, hands of the clock, and the heart give a little festive mood, so it will be a perfect home decoration for Christmas or a Christmas gift idea.

CanisArtStudio

Mairi from mairidesign says:

This valiant poppy on a stick will stand proudly beside your evergreen plants, to inject a pop of bright red, as the sunlight catches its beauty. Use to decorate your plant pots, to keep your vases alive when your fresh flowers wilt, or use as a lasting memorial to loved ones who are no longer with you. Most of all, just enjoy its loveliness.

mairidesign

Lianne from LianneMarieArt says:

A very cute cardinal print from original artwork. This vibrant valiant poppy red cardinal art is perfect for beautiful bird lovers and would make a gorgeous addition to cosy home decor especially in the winter! It is said ‘when a cardinal appears a loved one in heaven is near’ so can also be a heartfelt gift or remembrance piece!

LianneMarieArt

Karen Hafel from timetalentjewels says:

What a perfect color for the Fall and Winter Season is a shade of “red”! Valiant Poppy is captured in this Red Bamboo Chic Necklace. A fun little necklace to wear with dresses or go casual. 19″ with Pewter Round Beads mingled throughout. Matching Pierced Earrings. What fun!

Organic Materials

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Organic materials are pretty hot and in demand. They can be in anything handmade, vintage, supplies, furniture and so much more. Organic materials could be resin, plastic, wood, clay and more. We want to see your shop items made with organic materials.

Przemila from CanisArtStudio says this decorative jewelry box is 100% eco-friendly. It is made of natural full pine wood. The top of the box is hand-painted with artistic oil paints. The painting depicts a singing bird Meadowlark in a natural, spring scenery. A great gift idea for nature’s lover.

Betsy from Betsysbijoux said From the 1950’s, this hand carved wooden Christmas tree with a single flower ornament is a one of a kind piece and a unique take on the classic Christmas tree.

Judy from JAMsCraftCloset states this sign is an example of up-cycled and re-purposed fence slats. Once my new privacy fence was installed after Hurricane Irma, there were some slats left over. The fencing contractor gave them to me. I love how my fence slat signs turned out. What do you think?

Positive saying wood sign

spoiledfelines1 from SpoiledFelinesArt says living among the bayous and swamps in Southeastern Louisiana, nature and the environment are important elements in our shop and our lives. So we make every effort to use reclaimed and organic materials in creating our items. I chose to feature the cat wall hanging. I believe that showcases our commitment to the environment as it is made from reclaimed cypress wood from our area.

Zodiac Finds

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

The zodiac are the 12 astrology signs relating to your month of birth. There are different characteristics and meanings for each sign. Astrology is said to help show you what career you should follow,who you are compatible with or even where you should live.
We want to see your zodiac items from your shop.

Prezmila from CanisArtStudio says Chinese zodiac – The dog is the symbol of the year 2018.
What does The Horoscope say?
“Whoever was born in the year of the Dog is honest. He is not afraid to stand up for a just cause and defends people for whom he feels responsible. Thanks to his advantages, he has many friends. He wants to be well-informed because he believes that in this way he will be able to prevent unpleasantness and trouble. He gladly gives advice or even openly criticizes someone else’s behavior. He does it with good will, though some of his behavior seems irritating…”
I wonder if  Robin Hood was born in the year of the dog?
But the dog has many lovers and I made this pendant to celebrate the New Year and for those who just like dogs and especially the Beagle breed. A good idea to decorate the door for The New Year or Christmas. This ornament is in the cold winter colors, but you can order another similar one according to your wishes.
