Children always ask each other what is your favourite colour and see it as a very important question.My daughter has a penpal and this was one of the very first bits of information she shared with her. Kids seem toknow instinctively what matters.
As adults we probably would feel a little daft asking this question but actually it is a really revealing and the answers tell you a great deal.
In this series of posts I will be asking my blogging friends what their favourite colours are and in doing so finding out a bit more about them.
Let’s start with Penny Alexander
Tell us a little about yourself
What kind of colours of you like?
Over time I have learnt the colours that suit me best are Autumnal, bottle green, mustard and neutrals. Pastels aren’t for me, but I love primary colours and always have had a thing for red, which must be the rebel in me.
What is your favourite colour Penny and why it is your favourite? .
I am going to say green. My school uniform was bottle green, I have fabulously happy memories of school days, and of growing up and of V neck bottle green jumpers knitted for me by my Grandmother. Little did I know then, it was also a great colour for me. I always loved the idea it was named after a bottle, I have a huge jar full of sea glass on my windowsill at home.
Green is also the colour of grass and the place I am happiest, outdoors in nature or the garden.
I know you love to travel Penny do you have a favourite colour from your travels?
Bright white houses with bold blue doors and shutters on Greek Islands always scream summer holidays to me.
Can you share a picture of something in your favourite colour and tell us what it makes you feel?
Sea glass always reminds me of happy times beach combing and reminds me of standing by the ocean which is always so calming, it reminds me I am just a tiny speck in the world and my problems smaller still.
Spider plants remind me of my parent’s house and also remind me not to spend too long in my office and to get outside.
