January Etsy Finds

Time for another Etsy round-up! A new year means a new Pantone Color of the Year, and this year’s pick – marsala – is MUCH better than last year’s. Marsala is actually pretty, and doesn’t hurt the eyes. Also, January tends to be the coldest month here in Austin, and I am already tired of it. I’m dreaming of tropical beaches and 80-degree weather. The second collection down below has colors that remind me of that.
