Not just a giveaway!



There is a really fun give away being hosted on the website turning*turning

I love the idea of this giveaway because it really makes you think about color from a different perspective.

Here is what I wrote:

"I absolutely love green. It makes me feel nostalgic, calm, hopeful and peaceful all at the same time. Green is the feel of the summer sun on my cheeks,
the cool of a soft breeze through the trees, the smell of freshly cut grass, the tingle of evergreen tines on a winter afternoon, the bounce of moss under your
shoes, Green is the love reflected in my husbands eyes. I love green, it’s a warm safe color that reminds me of all things good and natural.

Cheers,
Dionne

PS - what a nice giveaway."



What is your favorite color and why? If you have one, and even if you don't, take a look at this blog. I really encourage you not just to enter the giveaway but really check out the entire blog.

There is one entry that is an especially touching tribute to the author's grandmother. I don't have a close relationship to either of my grandmothers or even with my mom; but this post is so very, very touching.

Cheers,
Dionne

Here's my problem with some giveaways. So many rules, and links and postings that I have a hard time just following them all.
I love yellow, also pink. but how to say what they make me feel except happy, well, I'd never win this one.
but I did look at it. I might try to figure it all out.
