Color Your World - Orange

Pin It
Design by Leslie Harvey using Tangie Baxter Product


Funny how the first Color Your World post is about orange... as, orange has been SUCH a prominent color in my life for a LONG time... Orange first showed up in my life when I met my husband for the first time. He was wearing a BRIGHT orange Tennessee Vols jersey. Since then, it seemed that ANYTHING orange belonged to us in some way. I adopted the color with wide open arms. I spent a ton of money for a special ordered neon sign (for him for our first Christmas)... I could've saved money to have it made in blue, or red, but NO... it could ONLY be orange. Orange was the dominant color in our wedding. Orange lives in our home decor. Orange is the color of flowers we receive from family members on special occasions. I have probably 10 orange Tennessee Hats that are nasty and dirty (and smelly) that my husband refuses to throw out... lol... I can't help but think of my husband and our life when I see ANYTHING orange. It's automatic... and... I love it.

What is the color you feel is branded in you or your family?

  5. Orange is the national color in my country. When our national soccerteam plays European or World Championship matches, everybody wears orange clothes, hats and wigs. And streets are decorated with orange flags and balloons. Every year on April 30th we celebrate our Queen's birthday.... and the whole country goes orange again!

  6. That's so interesting! I don't think we have a particular family color. I've never actually thought about it. Thanks for linking up!

  7. Aw, that's a cool color story! I like that orange brings happy memories to mind for y'all.

    We have a lot of blue around our house...I don't know if it's because we live on the coast or because it's calming. Either way, we like it!

    This is my first time visiting your world here and I am already drawn to your art. I like the layers and the colors and...well, I like it all!

    Blessings to you and yours
