another 25 cent bag from a yard sale last summer
What do different colors do for your mood? Are you ever particularly soothed or jarred by a color? Could you swear certain colors enhance your ability to cope? Keep you sane? LOL...okay, you don't have to confess.
She was trying to get me out of the "RED" mode. That was a colossal fail. But, blue has an appeal. I never associate it with a sad feeling, regardless of Neil Diamond and all the singers with "blue" songs.
However, I have not rejected blue. I just like it in different places--my home and the yard. Blue skies entrance me and soothe me. I always had pale blue bedroom walls. Oh, yeah, I even wore blue eyeshadow, not the bright blue, just the blue that was so dark it looked gray.
In 1977, I put in blue carpet in the den and hall of this house. It is is a dark blue, sort of like the dark blue handles but not bright, a mixture of several blue shades. It drew compliments. No, it was not shag! It seemed so cool and still does. I am not the decorator who goes around her house seeing how much warmth she can inject. However, it is warm in punches.
Oh, I have one blue blouse. I get so many compliments about the blouse OR people tell me I am looking good, what did I do to myself--different makeup, face lift....okay, maybe my mother was right!
This bag will probably go to my 11-yr-old granddaughter. She "travels" to her father and cousins, plus spends the night with friends.
Do you shop yard sales for reusable bags like I do? How do you feel about the color blue?
