spt challenge - the colors of my world



we all have a favorite color. maybe it's that certain periwinkle blue, a bold chartreuse, a butter yellow. perhaps you go ga-ga for cotton candy pink, yet cringe when that color goes slightly more pepto bismol...

my son often asks, "what's your favorite color?" and i usually say "green!" no, "blue!" "what did i say the last time you asked?" i had the occassion to *dress up* my guest room this week, and found myself drawn to the purples. maybe i'm not sure what my favorite color is. so, i'm setting out this weekend to find out.

i plan to take a little tour around my house, photographing my favorite things, my favorite clothes, my favorite sights around town. i'm hoping a trend will reveal itself. who knows? maybe when asked what my favorite color is, i will soon be able to answer, without hesitation, "cerulean!" or "manganese!"

so, hey, "what's your favorite color?"

I think your favorite color should be manganese just because that is so fun to say!

Great question. I am going to be in Germany for 2 weeks, so I will miss this SPT, however, I will take come color pictures that I am attracted to while gone. It will be fun to see what happens.

Ooh, yes - putting a name to a colour is tricky, isn't it? This SPT should rectify that problem for me, as at the moment my favourite colour is 'sagey-tealy-biscuit-petrol-buff-national-trusty-type-farrow-&-ball-kind-of-chalkyness'.
