Forever Orange

Fall has come and gone;  taking with it its vibrant colors of yellow's, red's and orange's.  That may be true for my outside world!!    Noooooo... don't make it go away in my inside world too!!  All the pumpkins and fall decor will be soon packed away, in preparation for the winter season.  

Giving up those fall colors always makes me sad, so I keep the orange going all year!!!

A little bit of orange on the bowl (Jewel Tea) that belonged to my mother-in -law.

It compliments my one orange wall

which compliments the living room wall art.

One of the guest bedrooms is orange.

with a coordinating orangish chair

In fact the bedspread in the master has hints of orange.

Oh, and lamp shades guessed it!!

Did I forget a few decorative accents in my favorite color?

And I saved the best for last.  This wonderful old farm kitchen table and chairs belonged to my dad's parents, it was their first kitchen table.  It has been painted and re-painted many times.  It is over 100 years old.  When I inherited it, I stripped down all the layers of paint, and guess what color I painted it?

And that's the way it is....................


  1. orange has to be the most warm happy color, everybody should have some orange, you do orange beautifully!

  2. Wow! You REALLY DO like orange! I have a few things orangey, but mostly clothes. Did you know that orange is the MS color?"

  3. Good for you keeping your favorite color around. Orange is a joyful color. It is also supposed to be good for the immune system. Well, if it makes you happy why wouldn't it be?

  4. i do believe you have an autumn theme going on. :)

  8. When the fall colours are done I go to hunter greens mixed with white's , beige and burgundy's I try to bring in the colours of pine trees , logs and Christmas all rolled in to one kind of ! I do like your oranges though very pretty ! Have a good day !

  9. I could not believe my mother has that very same bowl...I love it.
    I used to hate that 70's orange color but have grown rather partial to it too. Wonder what that means...
    hmmm, love the old table and chairs. They are true treasures.
    Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving

  10. I think that not too many people have orange as a favorite color. I always see it on the clearance racks at Macy's!

  11. i am smiling at all this orange, i did the exact same thing, but my color or choice that is in every corner of the house and every single room is burgundy. some of your things would fit with mine. chairs, curtains, spreads, blankets, lampshades, all in burgundy
