So good in every way – Ochre is more than a colour

ochre incredibusySo we’ve decided that we totally love the colours this time of year, so if you’ve not instagrammed your pumpkin yet (or enough) you still can! Just use the hashtag #sgiew_OCHRE for a chance to be featured on @incredibusy and @sogoodineveryway #sgiew…

Spotted these leaves on my walk with @redtedart along beside the river Wandle this afternoon on my way to the Osteopath – couldn’t resist, they looked like a fabric design…

What IS “Ochre”? you ask? Well, it’s an earthy pigment containing ferric oxide, typically with clay, varying from light yellow to brown or red. So – go for it, instagram anything within those hues… yellow through to orange, then to brown or red, and I know there are a LOT of lovely colourful leaves out there on the trees, so capture them quickly before they hit the floor!

This week’s guest judge is Emma, and as usual your hosts are @incredibusy, @redtedart and @willowdaygram and we’ll all be looking out for your lovely entries – Emma’s favourite nine will be featured on the grid at the end of the fortnight…

Hi, I’m Emma the founder of Ladyland, a lifestyle blog featuring great ideas for kickass women.

We feature all sorts of things to make and do, from craft, to DIY beauty hacks and recommendations for great books. I also run a design studio @junctionstudiolondon in Brixton, London, with my husband… specialising in branding, packaging and book design. Massively multi-tasking, still figuring it all out, but loving it too!

It’s very urban where we live, with our two kids in South London but at this time of year the colours of the trees light up our neighbourhood with bright hues that make everything so pretty. Our local park is always full of treasures, we come home with pockets full of conkers and acorns. For this fortnight’s instagram challenge, we’ll  be looking for your warm ‘ochre’ hues that you’ve found warming up your neighbourood at this time of year.
