Greetings, dear readers!

I've been in a bit of a "funk" lately (as if you couldn't tell) and so I made a determination to surround myself ONLY with those POSITIVE things that inspire me. I've discovered the thing that inspires me most is


Whether it's people, nature, home decorating, fabric, or scrapbook paper, I am inspired by color! LOTS of it and big jolts of it! I cannot fathom what it'd be like to live in a world that was only black and white. (Have you ever seen the movie "Pleasantville?" The "artists" in town are the rebels who bring color into the otherwise hum drum world of the suburbanite.)

The overall story line is marvelous...and it makes the basic premise that a world without art...without color, is not a world worth living in. I CONCUR!

SO...what inspires you? What colors? What designs? Leave a comment and share with the world your colorful inspirations!

I love this post! And I can't stop looking at that joyously colored non-orange orange!

Color gives me makes me happy! That's why I could never live in a neutral house. I'd just feel...neutral!

Long live color!

Thanks Paula for stopping by my blog. How sweet of you to leave such a kind entry! Don't know anything about being famous but I do feel a little star dust in my least for now.

Inspiration comes when I am well rested and have unscheduled time to goof off in my studio...a rarity I know.

Yes! I love bright, bold, crazy, loud colors. They help me breath a little better and make me smile. I can conquer the world if I have my hot pink purse on my arm, red on my fingernails and my neon green short shorts on my rear!
