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

Petals :: 52 Photos Project

Where I live the Bradford Pears have bloomed and blown and the Cherry Blossoms are in full blossom.  Even though that means our allergy season is now officially underway, I cannot help opening our windows every morning in hopes of hearing the birds singing to greet the day.  Springtime has conveniently coincided with my personal recovery process from knee surgery.  As I am slowly re-gaining mobility on crutches it seems an added encouragement that the weather is also improving and the trees are welcoming my return with their flowers. What a treat it would be to be able to put down my crutches in time for Easter Sunday and walk again on my own! (I am doubtful but one can hope.) Sharing with 52 Photos Project :: Petals

Saturday Surfing {favorite spots from around the web}

Saturdays are the perfect time for a little aimless web-wandering and here are few of my recent reads I'd like to recommend to you. The Wild Surrender of Motherhood by Carrie Ann Moss @Annapurna Living This new website launched this week and is absolutely lovely. Remember Carrie Ann Moss from the Matrix movies? Well she is now the founder and inspiration behind this blog.  Here is an excerpt of her vision for : FROM CARRIE-ANNE ... “To see womanhood through eyes of grace.”  My desire is to live in a world where nourishment is valued. I believe a nourished family will lead to a nourished world. I believe life is beautiful and that our divine purpose in this world is to nurture the earth by respecting it and being grateful for what it provides us.
