When Annie from Knitsofacto asked me if I would take part in the 'Colour Cooperative', I felt really honoured and said yes straight away. After that, panic struck! When it came to put together a post which would be suitable for this months theme 'faded', I was at a loss.
When I think of faded colours, images of the old warehouses in our Rotterdam harbour pop into my head. The greens and greys of the metal doors and the worn off lettering on the walls looks simply beautiful. Unfortunately my diary was completely full, so I could not find the time to step on my bike and cycle to the harbour.
I opened up my laptop instead and scrolled though my photographs, taken in my favourite B&B's & shop, my garden and my home. I chose the photo's which I thought show what faded colours are to me. They still look bright, but I can't help it :-)
Please have a look at Nina's, Lori's, Alex's, Annie's, Sandra's and Gillian's blog. You can find more details about their blogs and the colour collaborative below.
A Happy Thanksgiving to my American and Canadian followers and a lovely weekend ahead to all!

What is The Colour Collaborative? All creative bloggers make stuff, gather stuff, shape stuff, and share stuff. Mostly they work on their own, but what happens when a group of them work together? Is a creative collaboration greater than the sum of its parts? We think so and we hope you will too. We'll each be offering our own monthly take on a colour related theme, and hoping that in combination our ideas will encourage us, and perhaps you, to think about colour in new ways.
