I have always liked the browns and blacks of life.
My favorite weather is a winter day with no leaves on the trees and plenty of clouds in the sky. Add some fog and it’s perfect.
My husband calls me morbid. I cannot help it. One of my first embroidery projects was with black thread on brown fabric, a pillow cover. I loved it.
And that is one reason I love living amongst the trees: They go dormant and change to my favorite view.
And I love the way canning food changes its color. Oh, we have jars of brilliant beets and carrots, but I much prefer the lovely, lovely pickles and figs:
And although eggs can come in the starkest of white, the browns on these beauties draws me in to gaze and contemplate with awe.:
I like the reds, yellows, and blues, okay, but usually find them harsh and I call them attack colors.
Brown, though, is my favorite color. Calming, cooling, rich, and quiet, brown makes me smile. Or gray. Yeah, gray is good, too.

Great take on the prompt.
Thanks, Sandra, and WELCOME to Home’s Cool! It was fun.
I love fog. I feel safe in fog.
Yes. Me too. That’s it exactly. Except when I’m driving…
Well, yes; that’s not so safe 🙂
I like brown, too. But I adore greens, yellows, and earthy-type colors.
I like them, too, but earthy, as you put it. Olives and ochers, you know…
*puts on monocle* Quite so. Indeed.
You always have an uplifting thought on most subjects. But, brown – yes I can go for it…I usually prefer black though… God bless
Thanks, Friend! I like black lots! I especially like it for restaurant ceilings. 🙂
black on restaurant ceilings looks AWESOME! And black and white always makes me think of the ever-elegant Audrey Hepburn.
I also love Fall and Winter! 🙂
We fall/winter-lovers are about to have a great time, aren’t we! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
