I must say, the New Year's Eve coaster colors have really caught my eye - and yellow isn't normally my thing. So, in the spirit of what I normally wouldn't choose but am thrilled to try:

Sun & Salmon
Maroon & Pacific

Thanks!

Sunshine and Deep Magenta! I love the cases and would love to win the Kindle Fire with all of the books!!
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCallie
Only two favorites? I'm torn. Purple & Bright Yellow for a very Dick Tracy feel and to combat the Winter Solstice or Cobalt and Magenta. Either way I go for high contrast.
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterkelley
I think that navy and magenta or bright yellow and tan would be perfection!
