Yes, I know it’s a silly blog title, but aren’t you? Glad, I mean, now that with Halloween almost upon us the holiday season is officially here?
I’m not sure if I’m particularly glad about the hustle and bustle with shopping and more traffic, but I’m very much looking forward to the road trips to visit family.
Whatever your feelings about the holiday season, I love the color orange because it seems like such a happy color!
According to an online source:
“Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.
Although I personally don’t wear bright orange because my redhead complexion couldn’t take it, I do wear muted shades of orange like peach, salmon, and rust.
Fellow blogger and over-50 fashion guru Jodie shares her ideas on orange as a fashion statement.
I naturally have surrounded myself with the color orange. My home has two pumpkin-colored accent walls in the kitchen and dining room. My updated white brick fireplace now sports some Autumn decor on the mantle.
When we got married 5 years ago, I chose a non-traditional wedding ring that boasts an orange sapphire!
Does the color orange make you happy? Here are a few more of mine to get you started:
An end of summer delta sunset from September. Everything was orange!
Of course, a post with the theme of orange would be incomplete without some Fall colors.
I call this “California Autumn” because of the juxtaposition of fall leaves against the back drop of a palm tree.
