Being a Dutch child of the seventies I grew up with orange (Oh how I loved that little summer coat I had with yellow and orange stripes!).
Although Dutch people are a bunch of headstrong individuals, and too many group activities give us a headache, there are a couple of things that never fail to pull us together.
One of these things is our Royal House of Orange. One other thing is football (soccer). A third thing is a good party. Combine these three bits and you have a country going crazy. In years of big, international football-tournaments all things orange are sold out everywhere else in the world. They are all chanelled to Holland. Foodstores carry orange food, streets are being painted orange, and it's a sport to design a yet funnier, and more over-the-top hat/outfit each time again.
Taken this into account, I was enjoying my relatively orange-less years here in Munich. An overdose on orange is possible after all.
However while making some pictures for today's colour-week post, I noticed I'm opening up to this colour again. I started noticing those little blobs of orange happiness spread through my day:
"Earl Grey's" orange and grey. One of my favorite colour combinations these days. And in my crafting, more and more often, orange suddenly pops up:
Welcome back to you!
P.S.Before miss Yellow goes sour: I would have loved to share a picture with you of that supermarket cart at the turkish grocery store today. Laden high with nothing but lemons. Alas, I left the house without my camera. It won't happen again (at least not this week).
P.S 2: Don't miss out on other colour-goodness via Lisa!
