13 April 2009

I'm in desperate need of color (an my tea which is staring at me from the counter, but The Puppy has just curled up in my lap, and I don't have the heart to move her, ugh.).

I've spent the last few days mixing and matching blacks and denim. Remember that closet organization that happened last weekend? It's completely undone itself with my busy schedule - and denim and black will work out the wrinkles better than anything else. I'd like to say that I've been weaving in all those spring-time-brights with my boring color pallet, but I haven't.

I've been craving orange - in every possible hue from breathy to full; warm to transparent. And, since I'm sticking to my guns with my "green initiative" - I'm plucking items from the archives. Luckily Orange and I have been flirting with the idea of going public since my early twenties, so I've got a sizable pile to work with. And as far as my home (which is coming together quite nicely)? I'm throwing as much of the enthusiastic color I can around my place.

They say orange represents fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation. I could use a dash of each of these. You?
