My Favorite Color

It sounded like so much fun, that I signed up, but what is my favorite ?


I love COLOR - lots of it!


I went through the house on a search for my favorite color.


I looked in the kitchen


and the dining room.


I looked in the living room


and even in the garden.


Before my hunt, I would have told you my favorite color is yellow,


but the evidence clearly indicates that my favorite color is

Yes! Crushin' on some red!!! I was laughing half-way thru your pics, red was jumping off the screen! Sounds like a fabulous swap, will have to check it out. Thanks for the heads up.

Carol, Your favorite color is so bright and cheery and fits right in your home so nicely. Isn't it funny how we think we have one favorite color and we actually surround ourselves with another... I think blue is mine but, when I look around I have definitely surrounded myself with lots of white, lol... have a great day....Cathy

Mary Clark said...

Oops, deadline for the swap was Saturday.

Beth W said...

YAY! We're so glad you're joining us for this swap! And RED is a fantastic color- very powerful and upbeat. :)

Red is definitely your color!!

Suzan Sweatman said...

Well Carol I could have definitely told you your favorite color was RED lol - in fact when I see it in home decor I automatically think of you
Sounds like a fun swap!
XOXO

Stacey said...

Me too, without a doubt. :)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love all of your pretty bright colors. I think we all love touches of red in our decor...it adds so much to any decor! Enjoy your day my friend!

This does sound like a fun party! Red is such a fun color to add as an accent. I'm liking it more and more.

Red is your color for sure. You do really well with it too. I think you crush on any primary color but definitely red prevails.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! And tell me, PLEASE, how did you get such a vibrant shade of this RED in your photos? Do you enhance with Photoshop????? That last photo Carol, OMG that is stunning! You cottage is a happy place, thanks to the energizing red, and your creativity along with Steve's. I am so glad to know who you are. Have a great week! Anita

Soiled Rotten said...

I love this! Isn't it so funny how we think we know ourselves and what we express in our design is totally different??

Vicky Hunt said...

I would have guessed your favorite color to be red because you have more of that color in your decor. Love all the red items you highlighted in the photos...:) ANd those lilies are gorgeous outside your blue windows. Sounds like a fun swap....enjoy!

Blessings, Vicky

Jana@Transformations From the Heart said...

Carol,
I was thinking red also while scrolling through your photos. Such a bright, happy color that fits you to a tee.

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

I love red...

Susan said...

I am about to decorate my new home. I lay awake thinking over all the choices. As I unpack I will take careful note of what really makes me smile. I hope it will indicate the colours I should chose.

cynthia lee designs said...

I have touches of red in every room of my house...even though I didn't plan it that way. I love red too!!
hugs,
Cindy

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Even without the house tour I would have said RED. Not sure why It just seems to be your color!

Diane said...

I am not surprised - as I always write, you do red better than anyone else! Whoever receives your package will be very fortunate - I am sure there will be fabulous treasures in there.

Kathy said...

That is so funny! I say I don't have a favorite color because I like them all depending on my mood at the moment but always used to tell people my LEAST favorite color was green. Then I walked around my house one day and realized that is the color I use the most in every single room!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

This is such a cute post...I think I fell in love with your little ladybugs!:)

Prince Snow Farm said...

Silly, you should have asked!

Down by the sea said...

I love all the red around your house. What is your second favourite colour could it be yellow or blue?

Cute post!

Botanic Bleu said...

Carol,
Don't forget your fabulous red alphabet tablecloth! Whenever I think of you, I always automatically think of the tablecloth, also. Any clear bright color could be your favorite color. No pastels for you; no jewel tones for you; no faded, muted tones for you! Bright cheerful clear colors. They remind me of your bright cheery blog posts!

Melanie said...

I'm not surprised! Can't wait to see what items you receive in your swap. Sounds like lots of fun.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

It sure looks that way. Red is such a festive color!

Sue said...

Significant that I even remember my favorite color was red back when I was a really small child and then my favorite color changed shortly thereafter and now..............I like red more and more as I get older.

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

I love your cheery reds! Have fun with the swap. Such good feedback on my room switch from you. Thanks so much! Glad you're taking time to pet the puppy! :0)

My Garden Diaries said...

That sounds like such a cool swap!!!! And yes....I would have to say red but there are so many close seconds in your space!!! Just looking at all of your pieces brings a smile to my face!!!! Happy Wednesday friend!!!

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

I would say so, Carol. And it is all such pretty red too, and Kris says you should open a shop, so I'm just saying..Happy Wednesday..Judy

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

Sure looks like red is your favorite color - it's mine too.

Ricki Treleaven said...

Yep, mine too....and to be more specific, I love Perylene Red!

I did this swap last year, and it was so much fun! I can't wait to see what you put together for your Swap Partner....I'm sure it'll be so creative and fun. The Chaotic Goddess Swaps are the best!

Cynthia said...

I just discovered your blog from, Kris. I saw the beautiful napkins you made for her. They are surely treasures and you are one talented lady. You could sell these like hotcakes!!! What a wonderful thing to do. I adore Kris, she always is so welcoming to me. I am following your blog now. I would love for your to visit Cloches and Lavender and follow me back. Exciting things are happening. Thank you.

Cynthia

karen@somewhatquirky said...

I could have told you red was your favorite color. Red is my favorite color as well. Except for black and white. Black and white is favorite color 1a. and red is favorite color 1b. I love the idea of this swap. Sounds really fun.

fiona anderson said...

It definitely sounds right up your street Carol. I'm not sure I would have picked red for you, over yellow and blue, but I guess the lovely photos say it all.
Good luck with the swapping, it'll be fun to read about it all !

Carla said...

LOL yes Carol I think Red is definitely your fave. It's rather dominate in the pictures and it looks awesome.
Good luck in the swap.
Can't wait to read about it.
