tangerine, coral, or apricot?


orange - how high will your carrots go? Originally uploaded by dressform.

the carrots remind me that it is TOO wet to garden... the rain and cold return tomorrow.... thank goodness for 2 whole sunny days. i might have otherwise forgotten what it was like to have dry socks....

thanks to you all who have left such kind words about the photos i've been posting. it seems silly to thank you in the comments, so i'm thanking you out here! granted i've gone a bit nuts for the diptych, but i can't really help it... it just seems to speak to me [and my libra nature?? i can't make up my mind!!]. i promise to ease up on the pairing after tomorrow - the last day of color week! in any case.... my household orange:

orange - cactus tumblers

alicia posted about a color quiz today... i took it... the results really are eerie.... part of it reflects EXACTLY what the countess and i were talking about the other day. insert twilight zone music here.... you should give it a whirl!

*****book club******

ok... 2/3 of the last books were kind of rejected.... so i'm opening up to debate again....

1000 white women recommended to us by my dad.... a very long engagement - i haven't seen the movie [by the director of amilie] - but someone said the book was a good read.... OR a suggestion made by anabelle [creator of the amazing package below] something by sara vowell.... so take the canoli ? i'm leaning toward this because even though assassination vacation is supposed to be good it's on the historical side.... like what we just read.....

thoughts????

I loved A Very Long Engagement.

You're a Libra, too? When is your birthday?

1000 White Women looks really good... I would read anything by Sarah Vowell. She was talking about Assasination Vacation on John Stewart a couple weeks ago and t sounded awesome, but again Take the Canoli sounds great as well.

Oh you gotta love Sara Vowell! I of course, have note read anything by her, but I wanted to voice my unreliable opinion anyway! I love these pics too!

Keeping it short here-Sarah Vowell-yay I've read "Assasination Vaction" so I'll be cool with anything else. Love your photos this week-so cool-it seems like you have the "diptyque" thing down girl!

I love those orange tones :)
and I also took the test, mine was really scary ;)

anke said...

Love love love the cactus! The color seems to jump right at you.

I did not like "A very long engagement though" (the movie)...somehow they pulled the same tricks as in Amelie (which I adored) but they seemed strangely out of place here. It just didn't fit the sad story.
The 'canoli' book sounds interesting though...
