Friday Town Shoot Out: Favorite Color
Doreen from Michigan chose this week's theme of favorite color.
I have to admit that I've been thinking about it all week and it has challenged me.
If I hadn't given any thought to the subject I would have said that green is my favorite color.
But not just any green. I like the entire array of greens in that color pallette.
But after thinking about this subject I concluded that
color is so personal that I can't limit it to just one favorite.
To me, color represents your personality, your mood, your emotions.
It helps tell your life story, but only in part.
And since our mood and emotions are ever changing,
so too, are the colors that blend with our personalities to tell our story.
Personally, I love all earth tones. Those colors speak to me like no other.
They are warm and cozy and comfortable.
They are natural and outdoorsy.
They are muted colors lilke browns, greens, beiges, grays.
Below is something I put together to show the different browns I like.
I love the browns in the heart necklace.
All of my candles are green in color.
So, the earthy tones make me feel comfortable.
I really like blue a lot too.
I like Saphhire because it is my birthstone and it is such a vibrant blue color.
Blue can make me feel very elegant, especially when I wear the necklace pictured below.
I like vibrant, sparkly blues like cobalt.
Black and white are considered hues rather than color but there is just something about those hues that I love.
One is sophisticated and elegant and the other is fresh and refined.
Put the two together and you get a timeless classic look.
If you take a look in my closet though,
you will find a lot of green and a lot of black.
