  1. So many pieces here that I like...the colors are great. And I love the neutral focus.

  2. I love everything- especially the footwear. And I love the combination of black with warm browns. Lovely collection, as usual.

  3. Me too. Love em all. These colors work for me.

  4. What everyone else says! Ever since I found your blog I look at my scarves as the beginning of putting an outfit together rather than the final touch. Now I can begin to look at art the same way.

  5. Oh yes, I love them all; artfully inspired!

  6. These are not my colors, but you make me wish they were. I love the raspberry sweater and tweed skirt. The bottom right outfit is also lovely - smart, figure flattering and versatile.

  7. What a scrumptious scarf
    Thank you for the inspiration your down under friends appreciate it very much

  8. The colours of my country!
    Oh Janice, this is a stunning collection with wonderfully imaginative associations. Such unexpected combinations. Inspired! Thank you.

  9. Thank you so much Janice! I knew you would do something incredible with this and now your combinations have inspired me. I'm loving the long skirt combination and that cardigan. Thanks again!

  10. I love that you used an Australian painting. I love it; all the beautiful earthiness of that palette.
