Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!
According to Pantone one of the top colors for Spring 2016 is Buttercup.
While the majority of the Spring/Summer palette trends toward calmness, a few diversions from the theme emerge that offer a contrast. With PANTONE 12-0752 Buttercup, designers reveal a shining beacon transporting its wearer to a happier, sunnier place.Members of the Etsy ChristmasInJuly Team have many Buttercup items in their shops! Here are a few!

This is my Buttercup Mini Album made from Authentique Paper line Classique Beauty with lovely florals and very feminine. This would make a wonderful Wedding Gift or perfect Mother’s Day Gift to place photos and journal moments with your Mom.

What is better than flowers for spring? Buttercup yellow is the perfect spring accent to brighten up your home and garden for spring! This colorful sun catcher and mobile was inspired by the repurposed flower pendant. It made me think of flowers for spring which prompted me to think of spring colors. The buttercup yellow recycled earring was perfect for the center and catches the eye!

Buttercup, what a spring color!
l do love flowers, of any kind and in any season of the year.
The last days l was enchanted and inspired by a bunch of yellow tulips. So my brand new spring wreath was born.
With this tulips wreath you’ll breathe the fresh spring air, which will prolong all over the summer.
The white wicker base, the yellow flowers and the most life-like tulips leaves l have ever seen give a definitely sense of freshness.
The unique design of this spring wreath is characterized by a round green element, standing out from a rich natural raffia bow.
It will be a front door spring wreath no one else can have, such as a lovely porch decor too: a unique home accent.
It also represents a great gift idea for a refined woman or a unique housewarming gift.

I think I was mourning the end of the television series Mad Men when I was working on this anklet design.
There is a definite mod vibe to this colorful anklet with opaque yellow pyramids, orange/clear glass buttons and aqua daggers. Not to worry, no blood will be drawn from these little daggers. The edges are smooth and rounded. One of my rules for anklets is that they are comfortable enough to wear 24/7. I always test drive the anklet designs which has admittedly resulted in some funny morning observations of skin indentations from the not so successful designs.
If you look closely at the pyramids you will see the Illuminati eye at its center. Conspiracy theorist abound but I just keep thinking the little eye will wink if I stare at it long enough.
The sixties influenced anklet is anchored by a delicate but sturdy plastic chain in a happy shade of buttercup yellow. Quality plastic chain with delicate links and a nod to Bakelite is a rare find.
