Weekly Photo Challenge – The Hue of You

When I was a child, my hue was sparkles, glitter, shiny.  I loved seeing the early commercials of toys on tv (though it was in black & white).  There was a local tv character – Harlow Hickalooper, I believe, who had a kids cartoon show and daily prizes were given out to children in his audience – one of them being a glitter paint kit.  I dreamed of winning one of those kits!  October 20, 2013 pink and aqua 002

When I was a newlywed, the hue of me was pale pink.  I couldn’t get enough of pale pink – clothes, dishes, paint, even pink skies. I had a Liz Claiborne sweater set that was pale pink and cream stripes.  I loved that outfit.  It was the time when women were getting their ‘color’ analyzed and I was a pink.October 19, 2013  Pink or Aqua 002October 20, 2013 pink and aqua 001October 19, 2013  Pink or Aqua 022October 19, 2013  Pink or Aqua 021October 20, 2013 pink and aqua 004

Now that I am older and have explored the world through the internet and visited pages about France and Italy, I am obsessed with aqua blue – bottles, dishes, shutters, and even antique electrical insulators that my great aunt Molly gave me years ago.  The color of water on a lazy Sunday afternoon on a white beach in the tropics is now my color.
