Happy weekend!

Five months a year, most things outdoors are decidedly gray on the Cape.  Sky, trees, shingled houses, any and all bodies of water, roads, wooded vistas, stone driveways.  No surprise then when a bright blue sky makes its way to the forefront of an ordinary day, she always catches my attention and the gray slowly fades into oblivion.

Color has such an incredible impact on our outlook and our attitude and makes her presence known in the most delightful ways.  So when I saw pictures of this truly awesome pink {yes, pink} lake, I immediately knew what direction this weekend's PORCH was headed.   

So grab a hot mug and a soft blanket ... get comfy and enjoy browsing through this rainbow of goodies -

What's your favorite colors?  Do you wear them, create with them, or what?

  7. I love all the bright and cheery colors, Linda! They lift my spirits. Is that your own bench? I love it! Thank you, also for all the links. I got all side-tracked with Emily Lex's site for a while. :) Love and blessings to you!

    1. Hi Trudy! Nope, the bench used to sit in front of our favorite ice cream shop ... and that was one yummy raspberry smoothie πŸ₯€!

      And yes, Emily's creativity is always inspiring. Learning how to watercolor is on my wish list.

  8. Yes, I guessed the song, Linda! :) Oh, how your post cheered me up with its vibrant colors and hopeful promises of spring. I know you are waiting a bit longer for its appearance on the Cape than we are here in the South, but it's definitely worth it.
    Blessings, and have a great weekend!

    1. I hear you about the vibrant colors 🎨, Martha! In fact, I ditched a few of the snapshots and replaced them before hitting the PUBLISH button. They were too dull and didn't take me where I wanted us to go.

      Anyway, spring should come late April - mid May around here. The weather does whatever she pleases and we're learning to go with the flow!

  10. Blue is my favorite color and the sky up in northern Mn is beautiful when there are white cloud sailing along in the blue or the ground is covered in white startling snow. I am working on my first quilting project that is full of color. I am not into quilting, but I am into people and I meet twice a month with some women who are teaching me to quilt so this brutally cold winter does not drive me crazy. It's been a lovely spark of color when the birds come feed around my bird feeder. Encouraging and cheering post Linda. Thanks.

    1. I love how you put that, Betty ... you're into people even though you're not into quilting ✂️. What a super attitude! Sounds like you're going to have a good time ... I just know you'll bless those who gather with you.

  13. Praise God for the gift of color--such a delight for the eyes and heart. Checked out the psalms coloring book. THAT would keep a person occupied for awhile! Have dabbled in Bible journaling (on separate paper, not actually in a Bible--too much of a novice!). Might be fun to take a class sometime.

    1. I love spending an evening coloring πŸ–️. A soothing, calming way to end sometimes crazy days. Meditating on the verses that we're coloring makes it a double blessing!

  14. Enjoyed your colorful, delightful post dear Linda. I love so many colors and it depends on the seasons. Right now with Spring in air I am sensing some light blues, yellows and pinks. I hope your week is wonderful. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    1. That is so cool, Margie! I've got a granddaughter who fills her life with purple. And boy does she look beautiful in it πŸ’œ. I'm betting you do, too.

  17. I have to say that money talks,
    especially when mine,
    and so I stain Barb's rifle stocks
    with cheaply boxed red wine
    that takes more than a couple coats
    to reach the red oak grain,
    but it gets a lot of votes
    when at the final stain,
    for it is a gentle blush
    softly tinged with yellow glow,
    and I like it very much
    for as I work I know
    that it's the only stain (I think)
    whose leftovers I can drink.
