Interesting to know that Sherwin Williams paints does not agree with the color chart author! My home walls are "linen" but, according to the color chart, they are more like "cream" or "parchment". They have more of a kiss of yellow than the pinkish hue in the color chart. Then. again, what makes who an expert anyway? In anything? emoticon

I like to wear red! It makes me feel powerful. emoticon

I also wear a lot of blue (true blue is my favorite shade) and bright pink, like fuchsia. emoticon

I do neutral on the walls with pops of color for the pillows/bedspread.

For home decor I mainly stick to neural coloured walls, but I also love calm greens.

Ah, yes, Minnie. The Red Hat Society. Purple clothes, red hats, wonderful costume jewelry and FUN! There are several groups in town but I've not tried to join any. I'm just not quite ready for public silliness yet! Still worried about what others might think? I don't think so, but???

I love all colors!

Tally I love to wear purple which makes my family laugh because my Mum's favourite poem is warning by Jenny Joseph. For those of you who don't know it:

WARNING

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me,
And I shall spend my pension
on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals,
and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired,
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells,
And run my stick along the public railings,
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick the flowers in other people's gardens,
And learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat,
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go,
Or only bread and pickle for a week,
And hoard pens and pencils and beer mats
and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry,
And pay our rent and not swear in the street,
And set a good example for the children.
We will have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practise a little now?
So people who know me
are not too shocked and surprised,
When suddenly I am old
and start to wear purple!

Jenny Joseph

Yes, many (most) of my clothes are blue but I have been gravitating to purple for about a dozen years. No pink or red!
