What's your Favorite Color?
Honestly, I never thought I had one. I like all colors, just not a lot of it. I could never be comfortable sleeping in a pink bedroom or watching tv on a lime green velvet sofa (I have actually tried this and honestly, it just felt wrong). But I think that after all these years, I have come to the realization that my favorite color is blue.
I know I know, most 3 year olds can tell you that. But after countless weekends of scouring through soggy cardboard boxes and under dusty tables looking for treasure, its not the white Mccoy vase or brown transferware platter that makes my heart beat faster. Its the bleu enamel ware trivet or cobalt blue leather poetry books.
I finally came to this revelation this weekend. I looked in the back of my truck after an unusually great trip to the Flea, and everything was...yup, you guessed it, blue.
The only thing I can't figure out is why I have nothing blue in my house. Im not all that comfortable living with it as a paint color or a counter top or even simple curtains. Just a touch or POP of that gorgeous shade here or there is enough for me.
I guess its a love/hate thing. Have any of you felt this way about a color?
Have a great week everyone ~ Dee XO
