Orange!

Most little girls love pink...pink...rose...isn't the old saying "seeing the world through rose colored glasses"...

 Having a positive attitude lets you see things from a different perspective. 
Looking through "rose-colored glasses" is an optimistic way of viewing the situation or the world.

I know that I have always been a bit off of center my whole life...seeing the world a bit differently. To me the world is so full of colors, sounds, tastes, smells...so visual. As a little girl my favorite color was orange! I think it all started when my best friend, Janet Knudsen and I went to the (then new) McDonald's..what a treat that was and I had my first orange soda...what a burst of sunshine! 
That started my whole love of orange...

Next a friend of the family made my sister and I these darling corduroy skirts with complimentary crocheted vest...yes, mine was orange!!
granny square vest...way before boho was even thought of being a word or a style...

and I wore my beloved my desert boots with it...
from there came wanting to paint my room orange!
My Mom's response...well not going with it...but how about orange sherbet??
and that is what I got...happy!
So when you find yourself a bit off center, it is ok...listen to it and be who you are.
...and remember life still looks pretty darn good looking through your own orange colored glasses!
Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors. It is said to increase the craving for food. It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. People who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. Lady luck's color is orange. I have been told that if a change of any kind is need in life, just burn an orange candle for 7 nights.
