Sherwin-Williams has a handy little online tool called “Chip It!” that matches paint colors to any image of your choice. You choose the image and it chooses a color scheme based on that image. Have some fabulous new furniture or the perfect accessory? This tool makes it easy to figure out what colors to paint or decorate a room around that item! But don’t stop there! I think this tool would also come in handy for color scheme ideas when creating a new DIY project, scrapbooking, or even trying to create new fashion color combos for your closet!

EcoShag’s Handmade Infinity Scarf Giveaway – Summer Style in Summer’s Hottest Color Trends

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

I am pleased to introduce the handmade shop, EcoShag™. Created and nurtured into life by Tania Hillberg, EcoShag™ sells handmade infinity scarves made of vintage inspired fabrics as well as handmade scarf necklaces born of upcycled materials.

Handmade Polka Dot Infinity Scarf from EcoShag
Each handmade infinity scarf sold through EcoShag has been created soley by Tania’s own two hands. Tania feels that one of the most gratifying aspects of her work is in finding the fabrics she chooses to use. Unlike many scarf and accessory makers, Tania does not go to her local fabric store for textiles. Instead, she hunts down unique and interesting materials at estate sales, remnants when she’s fortunate to find enough, as well as organic/eco-friendly textiles. Even though it’s a lot more work, Tania loves that she’s able to create something she loves while also being eco-friendly, an aspect that’s very important to her. As for Tania herself, she is a mother, a wife, and a philanthropist. She likes to view each day as an opportunity to have a positive impact on the world and the people in it. Tania’s shop, EcoShag™, was actually inspired by the loss of her sister in 2008. Tania’s sister was her creative counterpart and in many ways, and her memory lives on with each item Tania makes.
I’m even more excited to announce that Tania is sponsoring a contest on Soap Deli News Blog and is giving away two infinity scarves of the winner’s choice! One winner will receive their choice of two of the following six scarves featured below.

Clockwise from top left: Extra Long Bohemian Hand Dyed Chunky Scarf in Seafoam, Green Brown and Taupe, Dark Mustard Handmade Sweater Infinity Scarf, Handmade Lightweight Coral Infinity Scarf, and Pear Green Floral Patterns and Stripes Handmade Infinity Scarf.
