Orange Everyday

...well, at least until I run out of photos of orange things in my everyday life.  I thought it would be fun, since I have just become really aware of how much I am enjoying the color right now, to take pictures of just exactly what the orange things around here actually are...So I will post a photo everyday until there are no more, or until the end of March, whichever comes first...I think I'll run out before the 31st but it does keep appearing over and over... 

So, yesterday when I had this kinda goofy color brainstorm I was actually wearing something appropriate for this post.  This is one of the many scarves I own and wear.  I love, love, love scarves...all kinds...knitted, crocheted, woven wool or cotton or silk or most any fiber, vintage, new, large, small, square, rectangular, long and narrow, plaid, print, floral, brightly colored or subdued, funky, classy...all kinds...Anyway, this is the one I was wearing yesterday, a lovely long silk rectangle that I bought in Glasgow at the Glasgow School of Art gift shop.  The print is a Charles Rennie MacKintosh (of course) :



This is a plaque on one of the walls inside, and a picture of DD (in the boots) at the steps of the front entrance to the school.  She would love to get her Master's degree here, I think.  Actually, if I were a young person right now I would think hard about it, myself...knowing now what I didn't know back then when I actually was a young art student...sigh...how times change, eh?


A cool mosaic window inside...very quilt-arty:


My baby (yes, I knit that hat):

Don't you love the details...how the windows on the doors look like they are flowers with calyxes and long stems, and the brass plates with the writing are so cool, and of course the sign above... Unfortunately, we were unable to take a guided tour of the school because we had to leave Glasgow before the next one started.  We did, however, explore as much as we could of this fantastic building and spent a good deal of time in the gift shop, which was lovely.  I got the scarf, a sketchbook, a canvas bag, and various other things...Fun, fun!

See ya tomorrow with some more orange =-)

Glad to see you posting regularly, especially about orange. Orange is a very under-appreciated color. Cheers to orange!

I love orange but I don't wear it at all. It's not a good color for my complexion but I love living in it!

What quilter doesn't love the Arts and Crafts Movement?
