My Favorite Color is...

BROWN.
The color of cardboard, sepia photos, antique oak,
chocolate,
coffee, tea and a mink coat;
my hair, my eyes,
Rebecca and Seth's eyes
(my two youngest kids),
our two dogs,
my cowboy boots,
and
most of my sweaters.
Above is a postcard I whipped up from more flotsum around my studio.
I plan to scribble a note to a friend today.
Just because I made some art.
What's your favorite color?

The better question is "what is my favorite color TODAY" because it changes pretty regularly! (And today it is the background color of your blog!)

My verification word is "midst." I am in the midst of blog hopping!

very sweet pictures from the dress patterns.

I'm a brown girl too but my favourite shade is brown /red - I use it in my work a lot & all over the house !

"Brown is a word that is richly caramel. But it's also the most lonely of all colors - banished from the color spectrum, the color of word, of wood, of earth, of bread, of hair."
