COLOR Me Spring - Clicking Our Heels


COLOR Me Spring - Clicking Our Heels

Spring is here! We’re putting away our winter clothing and looking at things in a new light, so we thought we’d share our favorite colors and why we like them with you.

T.K. Thorne - I am attracted to intense colors. Bright yellow, like the deep yellow daffodils or black-eyed susans, has always been a favorite (in fact I wrote a children’s short story once about the color yellow that went missing), but the best is the blue of runways lights and police lights. I have to make myself look away from the latter, especially when I’m driving, because they mesmerize me.

Debra Sennefelder - I don’t have a favorite color. Though I do tend to navigate towards blue for decorating.

Kathryn Lane - I love vibrant colors, purple, red, and orange; yet when I glance around my living environment and my clothes – I find a lot of blue, in varying hues from turquoise to navy. There’s a vibrant new blue on the market, called YInMn blue, that has a chemical makeup of Yttrium, Indium, and Manganese, making it stunningly bright.

 

Dru Ann Love – Blue – I associate freedom with the color blue.

 

Saralyn Richard – Red. It’s the color of my stilettos!

 

Robin Hillyer-Miles - My favorite color is this greenish color that I can't describe, I only know it when I see it. A couple of years ago I was in the car with my mom and I pointed to a building and told her that it was my favorite color, she said that has been my favorite color since I was three years old.

 

Debra H. Goldstein – Blue. Any shade works for me as I find the color peaceful whether it is the blue of a blouse or the sea-green blue of water at the beach.

 

Lois Winston – Black-because it’s so slimming!

 

Linda Rodriguez – Red and purple – can’t choose just one.

 

Mary Lee Ashford (1/2 of Sparkle Abbey) – Turquoise blue and I think it’s probably related to my love of the ocean. I find the color so soothing and serene.

 

Anita Carter (1/2 of Sparkle Abbey) - I love purple. I also like red and blue, but purple is my favorite.

 

Shari Randall – I’m in love with the color of David Austin’s Juliet roses – a soft and warm peach/coral pink. My daughter and I had similar roses in our bridal bouquets.


Cathy Perkins - I'm not sure I have a favorite color. Different ones appeal at different times and different situations. Yellow in the winter when the Pacific NW is painted in shades of gray. The vibrant green of spring leaves. Blue sky and water. The pop of power red in accessories...
