An Ode to Orange
I was flipping through last month’s issue of InStyle magazine and they did a little spread on the color of the moment and it was Tangerine! Orange is so bright and vibrant with a million wonderful shades, orange can bring life to any outfit. I fell in love with every piece on that page, and yearned to fill my life with orange. But I quickly realized I had already accumulated many orange pieces not only in my wardrobe but in my home as well.
My sweet food dishes I painted for my lovely orange cat.
Fluffy orange towels brighten up my bathroom…and yes that is a table of elements shower curtain (I know, we’re nerds!).
I swapped out my usual cherry red lipstick for a Tutti Frutti orange this season. And I have to say the orange is an odd but lovely change, even if you aren’t on the crazy-orange-loving train I would still recommend giving orange lipstick a go.
Lastly, I have this lovely orange fame that I picked up from the thrift store a few years ago. I keep it by my coffee maker so it is one of the first things I see every morning, not only because the gorgeous colorful frame but also because of the photo I keep inside. See that’s my beloved late Grandmother with bright red hair, and my charming Grandfather. She’s the reason I started to collect orange things, it was her favorite color and having orange everywhere reminds me of her, not that I need much reminder, she had a lasting impact on my life and I think of her daily. You know she was alot like the color orange: vibrant, fun, warm and she filled the room with her presence. My Grandfather said the moment he met her was the moment he knew there was a God. So, I guess this is really an Ode to my Grandmother, who I owe for introducing me to the color orange and all it’s splendors.
Hello Babes! This is my third post about my lil misfit family. This here is Felix and he is a pretty special guy. The Hubster and I put on a benefit concert for our local animal shelter back in 2005. When we went to deliver the cheque to the shelter we took a spin around to see all the sweet animals. When we approached one of the cages this little cat flopped right down in front of us, the name on the cage tag was “Felix”. He looked like a wreck. He had frost bitten paws, eat mites, cut up ears, a forked tongue, he was rail thin and a gimpy back leg. We had to save him. So we took him home right away and fixed him up (except the gimp leg and forked tongue,they are a permanent disfigurement). He is the most amazing friend. He always cuddles, greets me at the door, loves new people, and never complains.
Felix doesn’t really have much taste for fashion. However, during the holiday season Felix does like to wear a cape. He loves the fur collar, and it keeps him nice and warm.
I hope everyone is having a nice Friday.
