A Nod to the 2014 Color of the Year

The Pantone Color of the Year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid 18-3224.

Pantone describes their color this way:  Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones. Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.
Naturally, I had to search Etsy to see what I could find in the way of vintage hankies in this spectacular color. Below are a few of my finds; however, there are many more.
