it happens every year.
usually during the crappiest of all crappy winter days.....

they arrive.

the spring colors.

suddenly, the stores are full of
the perkiest of pinks,
the grassiest of greens,
the mints,
the salmons,
a perfect plethora of pantone prospects adorning every rack.

what do i do?

i fall in love.
and i buy....
i buy in a big way.

and then i put them in my closet
where they wait for warmer weather to arrive....
full of the prospects of sunshiney days and spring in my steps.
until i look at them and wonder......

why, pray tell, do i do this to myself?
because these colors were not meant for me
oh no......
on me?
the greens are ghastly.
the pinks look perfectly putrid....
the salmons......sickly.

i must learn to curtail my color conventions.

i vow not to pine for purple pants.

love your words and feelings -- here with us it is the winter colours and textures appearing in the shops while the sun is brightly shining and the soil yearns for water.

I cannot help but laugh out loud... I can so imagine this! I don't have it with clothes but I am at the point of painting the walls lemon green... Well you've just made me think twice...

I love this story, I can almost see it happen... Thanks fabulous Dawn! xoxo
