Bella Parade '13 : Post # 28 & 29

8:17 AM

Yeah you read that right. Its a double post today. I have been having internet issues. And have to end the parade with a double post!!!


The last color that we did was Sprout

Bella Solids Sprout Yardage SKU# 9900-267

Here are the two colors today

The first

Hints : 
1. I am an orange-colored citrus fruit which is closely related to the mandarin orange.
2. I also am a place in Orange County, Florida, a submarine telecommunications cable system, a 1997 novel by Edward Bloor, a DAAP music server, an early microcomputer manufacturer, a British confectionery company and a fictional character appearing in Marvel Comics.
3. _ A _ _ E _ I _ E

Here's color # 2

I am a two words name. Here are the hints :
 1. The first word means "tan-colored", from Anglo-Norman tauné "associated with the brownish-yellow of tanned leather", from Old French tané "to tan hides", from Medieval Latin tannare, from tannum "crushed oak bark", used in tanning leather, probably from a Celtic source (e.g. Breton tann, "oak tree"). The second word is one we have visited before in this series!!! Think Mediterranean.
2. The first word also refers to a strong aged wine, a feminine given name and  a 1954 record album by Jackie Gleason.
3. _ A W _ Y                 O _ _ V _

Here are the monochromatic schemes for both.

I combined color # 1 with Bubblegum and Kansas Red
