Project 64 {magenta}

Once in a job interview I was asked the following question:
"If you were a color crayon, what color would you be and why?"

My answer was immediate and easy.  Magenta.  It has been my favorite crayon since I first laid eyes on the entire enticing box of 64 Crayolas.    I think this color represents femininity with a dash of independence and flair.  If I had to say what it reveals about me  - I have no idea - but I did get that job!

Here's my interpretation of magenta for this week's photo project 64.  We had an added challenge to use a cell phone or point and shoot camera without editing the picture.  These were all taken with my point and shoot camera using the macro setting.

*Please leave me a comment and let me know what color you would be and why.*

  1. love your magenta photos, I think if I could I'd be periwinkle, seems serene, truthful and happy to me.

  2. Those little white flowers against the magenta are so delicate and sweet.
    Off the top of my head I would be green. It can be a very restful color or it can be invigorating. It also represents the recycling movement, that I strive to be a part of.

  3. Lovely! I found I really like magenta too, even though it had been one of those colors I didn't think about much. You did a great job with your point and shoot!

  4. Oh, is that lovely.

    I would probably be red. It's bright, cheerful and fiery.

  5. This is beautiful. Magenta's never been a favorite of mine as many of its shades are not particularly flattering on me. In flowers, it's another story! I guess I'd be red since that's the color I'm drawn to in almost everything!

  6. Very nice! Love that you used your point and shoot, the second to last is my fave! I'm always drawn to green, but as a color I'd probably be black, classic, dependable, but yet provides some contrast to the other colors. Thanks for linking up!

  7. I would be yellow. Bright, sunny and consistent.

  8. Stunning! Thanks for joining us at P64! Shana

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

How to Create Art in Five Minutes

As I have mentioned before, my word for this year is CREATE .  Painting with watercolors is one area in which I have been experimenting.  Michael's has a really inexpensive line of art supplies called Artist's Loft .  I bought the watercolor paints and a few brushes as a way to get started without much investment. (Everything is around $5-$10.)   Being a part of Alisa Burke's on-line class called Create Daily , has awakened my senses to the many opportunities to create quickly .  Sometimes we get caught up in the idea that we must have large blocks of time set aside to be artistic .  Surely, we think, it takes an afternoon to paint, collage, journal or compose a few lines of poetry.  Well, if you are seeking perfection, it does.  But if you are seeking to revel in your simplistic ability to create something imperfect instead of nothing at all ,  there are moments of creative inspiration everywhere you look! On this particular day, I opened my daily poetry em

Peaceful Snow Day

Yesterday we had the most lovely snow day. The woods were simply begging us to come and explore. We had new trails to find and secret passageways and hideouts. Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God. George Washington Carver There were tracks to follow. And tracks to make. Occasionally, the wind blew mini blizzards of snow around us. And then the sun returned and the sky gleamed blue. The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. Ralph Waldo Emerson There were hints of Spring. And reminders of winter. We made wonderful memories. And then, there were the snowy camellias. I got a little swept away by their color and beauty. I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. e.e. cummings
