Retro color feast

I've been rummaging around the inter-web a bit looking for inspiration for a project I'm working on and came across these pretties. While they aren't quite the aesthetic I'm striving for I can't help but stare! The colors completely captured me.
Most of these are by Mary Blair, a lady who has quite the remarkable resume. The Cinderella carriage painting totally sucks me in. I can't can't help but feel a tich nervous for them, just waiting for them to move too hastily and teeter of the edge.

Hopefully, soon, I'll share what I've been working on and you can give me feedback. It's so beneficial to get opinions from fresh eyes!

PS - Today is my first day back at school :( There is much weeping and gnashing of teeth.


  1. Mary Blair sure knew how to use colours! I love retro prints.


  2. I'm really excited for the first day of school! what is wrong with you!

  3. Hi! I just found your blog through Bhrett's. :)
    The cinderella carriage one is soooo rad! It's my favorite too. They're all pretty though.

  4. I so love the background on that Cinderella print! And that kitschy sunshine cat pic!
