I Am Hooked On Orange ~ And I Mean Hooked!

Okie ~ Dokie..so maybe you can't use the word orange in a poem or a song verse and find a word to rhyme with it...it still is making my ol' heart sing! I am hooked on ORANGE! Big time! Thank you to our wonderful host Julia, for your splendid Hooked on Friday soirees! I would share a tall glass of orange juice and a orange frosted cupcake with orange sprinkles if I could...that is just how much I love these Friday get~togethers and the color orange! Cha~cha~cha!

I am so hooked on this color lately...I am starting to want fall to come early...and after the winter we had last year...I must be nuts!
I just want to wear orange, eat orange food, sew with orange, paint with orange and most of all blog about orange!!!!
Obsessed!


It is invading my sewing room...

{Not really orange} but a golden rod~ish quilt that hangs above our bed...
This is really the only orange~y thing we have in the house and it is not really orange...maybe a close relative...
The acorn squash are in the stores now!!!


When the pumpkins arrive it will be time for this recipe...

I really find myself wanting to eat orange colored food! YUM!
Have you tried this?

Still orange obsessed, I put together a baby orange do~dad filled cloche...

Not even the dried hydrangeas are safe from my crush on orange!

It is truly a happy color, and I believe that orange is not just for Harvest time anymore...no sir~ee...as far as I am concerned...orange may not rhyme with any other word but it sure does rhyme with any room!

Thank you Julia for sharing your party...orange you grand...yes you are!

When I was in Walmart the other day, I noticed orange everywhere! It must be the new decorating trend to come. Go there and you'll find lots of it. It's a nice bright cheerful color for sure.

I just think orange looks so bright and cheerful in the summer and then I LOVE it in the fall as it is the color of so many of my favorite fall things!!!!! LOVE your orange post!

I could DEFINITELY go for fall right now as all day I have been in the garage getting ready for a yard sale tomorrow. Shower here I come!!!! Oh, and get this, I have already sold about $500.00 worth of (mainly Lexi's) clothes!! Just from people we know that have already stopped by....WOOHOO!!!
