My Color

Hello  everyone!  I can’t believe it has been two weeks already since I posted the color photo hunt post and that I haven’t posted anything in between!  Spring has definitely arrived to this part of the world and I’ve found myself quite busy with all of the spring yard work that goes along with it!  I had a birthday a couple days ago as well, and toss in all of the everyday life stuff and I just haven’t had the chance to be here at the computer.  I feel like I have lots to write about, but since today is my deadline for the photo hunt, I will get on with telling you about my color.

I have always been  drawn to the color pink in all of its varying shades.  Heck, I even love the artist who calls herself Pink!  I think she’s a fabulous singer.

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while now, you’ve seen pictures of my kitchen and dining room.  Ever notice the color theme that runs through both?

When I received a Kindle this past Christmas, I ordered a case for it. Here’s the color:

With spring busting out all over, it was time for me to start putting my feet in my favorite style of shoes – sandals! But you can’t wear sandals without first getting a pedicure, right?

And you knew there would be flowers didn’t you? Could there really be a spring blog/photo hunt about color from me without flowers?

Here in New England, magnolia trees are blooming like crazy this time of year. They are simply gorgeous. I don’t have one of my own, and I envy all of the yards I see with these beautiful trees. I drove around town looking for one where I could take pictures without stepping into someone’s yard, then found one at our public library. I took these shots on my birthday, which just happened to be about as lovely a day as you could ask for.

I found a webpage with the psychology of pink. Here are my favorite lines from that page:
“The color pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing. Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful and caring. Pink is intuitive and insightful, showing tenderness and kindness with its empathy and sensitivity.” If you’d like to read more, click here.

I hope you all enjoyed this photo hunt! It is not too late to jump in! You can post all day today, and if you’d like more time to be included, just drop me a comment to let me know. I’m looking forward to coming around to see all of your wonderful color posts! I’m hoping to do that later today, and to write a wrap-up post in a few days.

  2. Love those pink toes! And the pink flowers just cry out to have a nose buried in them and the scent of spring inhaled.

    • Thanks Carol. The hyacinths definitely have a sweet, fun fragrance. 🙂

  3. My goodness, Karma, to think that you’re a pink kinda girl! Love the beauty of this pink you’ve shared here. Sighing deeply at the blossoms. And the bare toes. You’d swear that pink loves spring, wouldn’t you!

    • Thanks Kathy. I don’t have a lot of pink in my wardrobe (some but not much), not sure why, but I’ve definitely always been drawn to this color. Pink trees are a wonderful sign of spring, so I think you are right, pink must love spring, just like I do. 🙂

  4. Fantastic pinks! Love that color you got for your toes. Happy, happy birthday, Karma! 🙂

    • Thanks Robin! I think it is time for your gravatar to change from sneakers to sandals! 😉

  5. You had a birthday recently? Happy (belated) birthday to you! My son turned 28 last week and I have a birthday coming up this week too. It’s a good time of year to have a birthday, don’t you think? The weather is just perfect, in both hemispheres.

    Love all of those pink flowers and I agree with Carol, they need to have your nose buried in them! The Aerosmith song is a new one to me, and what a crazy film clip it is too, so “Steven Tyler-ish”, that crazy guy! I do miss his input on American Idol this season. 🙂

    • A wonderful time of year for birthdays!! Thanks, Joanne.
      That is a pretty wild Aerosmith video, isn’t it?

  6. First off, happy belated birthday! Love the photo of your birthday bouquet..and of course of the magnolias. Thanks for doing the photo challenge…I love these!

    • Thank you, Dawn. I’ll see what I can do about maybe coming up with a couple other photo hunts this year. You never know where or when inspiration will strike! 😉

  7. Love the pinks. Our magnolias won’t be out for another month. Sigh …

    • Thanks Sybil. Think of it this way: when the magnolias around here are just a pile of petals on the ground, you will still have yours to look forward to! In a couple weeks it will be time for lilacs here! Wheeeeee! 😀

  8. I am not a big fan of pink, never have been. It’s my theory as to why I didn’t have girls. I just love the magnolia against that gorgeous blue sky.

    • Thanks Becky! Gee, maybe that’s why I do have girls, lol!

  9. Been so busy lately, I have not been checking up on the blogs. Sorry I missed this hunt! Will try and keep up in the future. Lovely work with the flowers which are finally coming out around me.

    • No problem Scott! I didn’t even realize I was going to do a photo hunt at the time!

  11. Très belle sélection de teintes de rose. Ma préférée est la jacinthe , c’est une couleur que j’aime porter. Elle donne bonne mine 🙂

  12. […] your favorite song of the moment? I told you in my post about color that I really enjoy Pink as an artist. Her duet with Nate Ruess “Just Give me a Reason” […]
