Color is pretty important to me. I love lots of color in my life. I didn't realize how much I loved color until I painted my kitchen a clay, flower pot shade (a Martha Stewart brand color, my husband Steve pointed out) and then started buying a lot of yellows, greens, and blues to go with my kitchen. My bathroom is yellow, and I like orange and lime green to dress it up. The computer room is yellow where I blog--really bright and cheery. My cars are always red. I like red coats and shoes, too, even though I don't wear red shoes!!!! I love Dorothy's red, ruby slippers!! I have wanted to write about colors per se, but the ideas just wouldn't come together.
(Get to the point!!!!!)
Well, yesterday, I was determined to buy a new purse because the one I have is just too small. I run around a lot and need to pack my purse just in case........... Besides the size of a purse, color is important, too. Did you ever think how many times color guides our lives? (Do you see how my mind wanders?)
I saw black purses, beige, blue, red, white, multi-colored, and one yellow purse. A yellow purse!!! Yellow is my favorite color, but a yellow purse??? I love red purses. I love light green and light brown purses, but I never really considered a yellow purse or saw a yellow one I liked! I passed by this purse many times before I stopped to take a look.
It did look like the right size and was, oh, so soft. Okay, I'll open it up and search inside. It had a multi-colored umbrella with it!!! What a deal! But that umbrella was speaking to me, too, "Take a chance on this yellow purse!" (How many male readers have I lost by now?)
The purse had a beautiful yellow color, but for a purse to be yellow? I admit it sure didn't go with my red winter coat. It will be spring soon, right? I can see me now wearing my white, tan, and black capris with all my colorful tops, swinging a yellow purse by my side. But a very bright yellow purse??? (This is a lot of time to spend on color, you know!)
I bought it!
It was the only yellow purse in the large Ft. Wayne Kohl's store. It was my favorite color. It was the right size with plenty of pockets. I took it home and slept on it--not actually on it, but sleep is good when making an important decision as to keeping something or taking it back.
Yes, it's a keeper. Now I can hardly wait to see what reactions I get when I carry my large, yellow purse. If I don't get any reactions, I'll be disappointed.
