spt - color me beautiful
waaay back in high school, my mom got a copy of this book, and from then on, i have been drawn to darker, bolder, brighter, (louder) colors. taking my instructions from the book very seriously, i developed a lifelong aversion to all things pastel. and yellow.
i am a winter, like these beauties. as a winter, my thirty special colors include Bright White, True Red, Royal Blue, Emerald Green, Purple, Navy, Black and White. it's true, i get the most compliments when i wear these colors. i also feel the most confident when i wear these colors. and as i look around my life, it is easy to see that i haven't strayed far from my winter color palette.
a beautifully etched wine bottle i received as a shower gift before our wedding
the objet d'art we bought together for our recent copper anniversary
candle holders on the windowsill beside my piano
i'm keeping it real, folks
it would seem that i favor greens and blues. i'm a little more cerulean than pacific blue, a little more electric lime than fern. i am still drawn to darker, bolder, brighter (and louder) colors. if pressed to pick a favorite, then here is the tie breaker:
silk flowers from our wedding
mango tango, fuschia, and inch worm.
