Something random I'm noticing more and more about myself is that I love colour. I mean, just look at the title of my blog. Colour makes me happy.
So to be more specific, recently I'm trying to make every aspect of my life more colourful. While in Florida I bought a belt that wasn't black, it is white covered with multi-coloured stripes... and I love it! I recently hosted a Tupperware party and was blessed that I had some money to buy some of their amazing products. The order came in the mail, and as soon as I opened the box, I was hit with COLOUR! It was awesome. I have some lime green sandwich containers, tropical blue stackables for my deli-meats, and a few other things that are bright colours. I'm so glad that Tupperware has jumped on this bandwagon.
I can see the logic in having a few things in neutral colours, so that when you start having a kick for ORANGE instead of PURPLE, you don't have to worry about replacing a couch. But I sometimes wonder if even I might take things to the next step. When my stone coloured couch takes it's last beating, will I try to convince my husband that kelly green is the next best thing? I think I just might. My wonderful husband has been so accommodating with my love of colour, but I think that happiness is contagious. If colour makes me happy, he starts to see the way I see. And if I'm happy, he's happy. Which, in turn, makes me happy. And what a great circle that is. :)

  1. One year for my birthday Jon got me a giant box of crayolas - I called them my portable rainbow! I'm totally the same way about colour. I keep meaning to post pictures to facebook of our house now that it's painted. We have a LOT of colour. Our trim is orange! Dark green walls in the living room, light green in the kitchen, carnival pink in the hall and bathroom and indigo in the bedroom, plus 4 different coloured walls in my Reading Room to symbolize the four elements (earth, air, fire, and water). The only place I struggle to have enough colour is my wardrobe. Between having been a Goth and always being on the larger side, black dominates my clothing palette. Working on that though. I say go nuts with it! If I could afford it all my furniture would be boldly coloured. Right now, it's mostly second-hand.
