my favorite color

December 06, 2010

A couple of months ago, my nine year old cousin, Allie, asked me what my favorite color was. “Hmm. I don’t know” I said. Well, I’ve been thinking about this question for 2 months now. ย There is one color that I love: pink. If you look around my house, you won’t see any pink decor. I hardly wear clothes that are pink. It’s only when you look in my drawers, cupboards, etc. that you discover I have A LOT of pink stuff. In fact, I’ve been known to squeal in stores after finding “pink” items. (Don’t you think a vintage pink filing cabinet is worth a scream?) I try to sneak pink into all of my designs . . . they just don’t feel right without pink. But, I still don’t know if it’s my favorite color. I like all colors. Pink just makes me the happiest.

    Green is mine! Only certain greens, like leaves & grass or key limes. and greeny-blues… love them.
    Also have a thing for orange I guess too, deep rusty oranges…WITH the greeny blues.
    I used to be one of those people who didn’t think orange, pink & red should be mixed up together, but now I like it. I love my ‘remix’ fabric that does this! Reminds me of growing up in the 80’s, but it’s still so completely modern at the same time. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you Charlotte! I’m glad you like my Remix fabric. I like green, too! Especially grass green.

    Ah yes. Pink. Makes me happy too. There is just something about that colour. Maybe it makes me feel all girly again. I think it has something to do with that. The colour pink connects with the little girl in me, with a head filled with dreams and fantasies and the conviction that they all will come true. How could that not make one feel happy?

    I love pink too! I have been stalking your blog for a while now, and thought it was time to comment and let you know that I am in love with your fabrics. Thank you for designing them…they are so fun and happy! I love your pink and red Bible, by the way! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks Becky! I’m glad you like my fabrics! I like my bible too. I had an old brown bible that I loved . . . I knew how to flip the pages to go to exactly the scripture I wanted to read, it was nicely broken in, etc. But, the cover came completely off. I even looked into getting it repaired, but it wast going to be too expensive. I was bummed and refused to get a new one for awhile, but when I saw the pink bible, it softened the blow of turning in my old bible:)

    I loveeeeeee pink aswell. I think that comes from being in a house of boys where there is very limited pink and what little there is,is disliked or grumbled about!!!
    I am in love with your pink suitcase!!!

  8. i love your Bible cover, years ago I made one for my MOM but not myself, hers I made with a zipper around it and pockets inside for her notebook. i have to admit that i really like yours and think I’m going to go make a cover of my own. thanks for sharing. God bless you Anne

    hi kelle!

    pink is my all time fav, too….(and turquoise). love, love, love!

    and, i adore those super cute nike’s….do tell where i can get a pair, i need new running shoes…they are perfection!

    thanks for cheering up my snowed in day today with all the fun color..

      Thanks, Shelly! They are the Nike LunarGlide. I really like them out of all the running shoes I’ve worn and trust me, I’ve gone through a lot. I wear a custom orthotic, so I don’t know how much that has to do with them being comfortable. I like how light they are.
