The Color of Chocolate

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...

Oh Nathalie is so nice to meet you face to blogger friend! You inspired me and I have now posted about where I blog. Thank goodness, I had a photo my son took on file so I didn't have to stress about taking a new picture. You are beautiful! Actually, you look a lot like a woman in town here. Any lost sisters?
As far as brown goes...pretty much all I where is brown, grey, and black. The t shirt I'm wearing in my photo is brown too!
