Decorating makes me joyful. First, I get to spend money. (joy dance) Second, my creative juices squirt out everywhere, leaving all around me drenched in fabulous, but me parched and needing even more Dr. Pepper and rabbit poop ice~win/win situation. And third, I get to turn my world some color other than brown. Ew.
So let's discuss this "shades of pooh" obsession~and by obsession, I mean disease. And by disease, I mean revolting, puss-filled, infectious and warty. OK, maybe that was a little harsh, but I become very passionate, friends, when it comes to dumbing down of any sort, and this is at the top of my list. I just do NOT get it. What is so beautiful/sophisticated/desirous about taupe, tan, brown, sand, neutral? Many words, one meaning~not a color.
When people refer to "earth tones," they are mistaken. The sky is not brown. The grass is not brown. Flowers, water, fruit, vegetables, trees (leaves)~ALL not brown. Therefore, Earth is not brown. Dirt is~not Earth. Big difference.
"What is she suggesting?" you ask.
It's simple. Spray paint, people.
"This is madness!" you scream.
"Is she competent?" you query.
"What can we DO to help her find her way back?" you fret.
I appreciate your concern. But I am committed to this concept. In fact, I am a Bible thumping, cross wearing, hail Mary saying, Book of Mormon reading, believer in the concept of COLOR! And not just ONE, but ALL KINDS! Red, Blue, Yellow, White, Pink, Orange, Copper, Green...the list goes on and on, my friends. It's almost as if the good Lord planned it this way. What? Crazy, I know! But maybe, just maybe, He knew that it would bring us JOY!
Which is, I believe, why men...and women...are.
And that is why I will continue to eat my Harvest Veggies, fill my cups with rabbit poop ice and decorate with the rainbow that was given me to splatter all over my world.
Now that is reason for JOY! Come, let us dance.
