Colourful Fridays - Orange

It's already Friday on the other side of the world and has been for a while so I am posting early :) Link is now on my sidebar.
One of the silk flower arrangements in my kitchen (early version).
A sunshine stencil one of my girls requested for the back of her bedroom door.
Fabric used for my youngest daughter's PJ's. Bzzzzzzzzilly happy :)
A gorgeous easter 2009 quiltie made by Ann Hudson that I was given in a swap.
I collect snowmen and this is one of the cross-stitch christmas tree snowmen I made. Love his orange hat :)
One of my original autumn design mini samplers used for a swap.
One of our summer lilies. They vary from yellow through orange to red.
Ya never know what will show up in your photo album when your children borrow your camera :)

Many people find orange a hard color to work with yet it is viewed as sunny, vibrant and happy. On a walk or two through my house I found a whoooole lot more than I expected - cereal box, bread packaging, cereal bowl, knife handles, a small amount of fabric, my husband's shirt and tie, an old cushion, book covers, a box full of fall decorations, shampoo and body wash, hand sanitizer.

One of the official colors of Tennessee (pin taken off the web, photographer unknown).
and an award I received recently

You should let your kids have the camera more often! Tell them the weekly colour and see what they come up with - what fun! Great pics!

Hi Carol. These are fun photos. I love collecting snowmen, too, so think your cross stitch is adorable.
I think we use more orange than we realise.
Love the smiley face too!

I didn't think I would be able to find orange anywhere either *giggle*. Love the smiley face! toni xxx
