Inspired by a recent post on Penny's blog where she asked if readers would post of a photo of where they blog, I took up my camera, aimed and clicked.
Maybe I should have actually fixed my hair, but then I would never get around to taking a picture!
And then emboldened by my spontaneous act, I changed my blog's avatar.
No more hiding behind a teacup and dip pens!
So aside from the deeply etched wrinkles, the second thing I noticed was that my photo was very brown.
The color of antique wood, aged leather, yellowed and stained papers, tea, coffee and chocolate.
It's the color of my hair (specifically nutmeg), half of my clothing (the remainder is mostly black) and the color of my eyeglass frames.
I have tumbling piles of yellowed and antique things in my studio and this is where I blog.
I bet you are so not surprised!
The color of my blog might have been a small hint...
