Things I'm Thinking About


Another picture from my Asheville trip. I always have been and I guess I always will be fascinated by color. I am happiest with bright and spicy colors. I'm drawn to reds and yellows and oranges. When I make jewelry I almost always make it in bright colors and add some sparkle to it. I'm an "Ooooh, sparkly" kind of gal, a natural born magpie.

So why did I have on all black Wednesday, all brown yesterday and brown and tan today? With only plain and simple earrings.

I'm thinking of donating almost all of my clothes and starting over with bright colors, slinky fabrics and sparkly things around my neck, silk scarves all over everywhere and earrings and bracelets that make a statement!

Wait - that could get very expensive. Maybe I better think this through a little more.

Hello Ernie:)It's such a great idea:)
There is nothing to think about!
Go colourful if this makes you happy. No time to waste:)

BTW - I have cleared my wardrobe last weekend from all black (and almost all my clothes were black. I think I just got stuck with the idea that black makes you slim without realising that this colour makes me look tired, old and unhappy.

This weekend I am going to add some new colours:) for now I am limited with my choice to only few items but gradually (months) I will build up my waredrobe again:)

Good luck with yours!

I live quite away from a big city, and when I worked it was as support staff in an elementary school, so I was used to seeing color everywhere.

Last year when DH and I were in Melbourne, AU, most all the women were wearing black, or dark colors. Suddenly, in the midst of all this drab, a woman walked by in a poppy colored, knee length overcoat. It was wonderful. So add in some color. You'll love it.

These are the kind of photographs I would like to make. THis one is especially beautiful- I couldn't stop looking at it!!
I also where lots of brown, grays, and blacks. Like today, I have gray and black on but I have a lime green rose necklace around my neck and lime green earrings - that way, I can have my neutrals and still have a splash of color!
