Colourful Friday - SILVER

Good morning one and all. For those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday I hope you had a fabulous day. We stayed home this year and had a restful day enjoying each others company. Ate waaaay too many desserts (as usual) and don't feel ready for breakfast yet :)

Onwards to the color SILVER which can range from white through dark grey depending upon the light. It's one of my favorite colors and I had a hard time culling photos :)

Darling daughter #2 looooooves shoes and I actually miss not seeing so many round the house anymore !!!!! This pair is still here and for the photo they are resting on top of one of the dresses she made for her flute trio.

Nashville dust has a silver/grey hue to it ..... at least at our house it does :) Wouldn't you know it ....... the shadows look silver/grey and the highlight could just sneak in there too

I make rice pudding from scratch and am currently stocking up on evaporated and condensed milk because Christmas is coming :)

Darling son is reading and DD #3's elephant decided to join in. The book cover has a lot of silver in it that changes color depending upon the light.

Our kitchen has tons of "SILVER" aka chrome, the biggest item being the fridge/freezer we bought a couple of years ago at our local scratch and dent store.

The Hansen great grandparents originally came from Norway and our Viking hangs in the front living room with all our family photos lending a very whimsical look to the arrangement.

One of my flower sketches is on paper that has silver stringy bits in it. For those of you who have visited my blog for a long time you may remember this one from being one of my blog headers last year.

I'm working on a project for Mrs. Moen and need lots of circles.

Head on over to Bev's blog (our temporary hostess) to see some more fun SILVER blog entries. Robyn will be back next week so many thanks to Bev for keeping the party going.

Next weeks color is Teal.

Good luck with the circle quilt.

Hi Carol. Lots of great silver photos. You must have very special dust in your state for it to be silver! I do like the idea of a viking watching over you. Have a silvery day.

I am so tickled with photo of dust. I had plenty like that but did not your creative flair. How funny. Thank you for great photos. Love Lois
