In my last post, I joked about the color patriarch as possibly having the flavor of oppression — however, I do believe that this ensemble could successfully change the name of the color to matriarch, with no oppression involved. It evokes the idea of a beautiful, confident, and powerful — and hopefully benevolent! — female ruler.

Next week’s color in The Challenge is melon. Sweet, juicy, succulent… feminine. Hmm. Maybe I should get one of the Men of Alphabrat to do that one, just to mess with the color/gender stereotypes again!?

Tune in next time to see what happens.

Mmmm.. lemon raspberry cheesecake…

I can’t help it! Most colors have flavor memories to me.

However the next color in The Challenge is Patriarch, and for the the life of me, I cannot summon a taste memory for that. Does it taste like oppression? hahaha… I guess we’ll see!

Have a great week ahead everyone.

Celadon – just under the wire! I’m usually early with my Challenge posts, but this week has been filled with craziness and summer busy-ness, so I’m running late!

Celadon was a fun color to do, but I am really looking forward to LEMON next. Just typing that word makes my mouth water! Be sure to come back for a visit and see what happens with that pretty, summery color.

Stay cool and wear your sunscreen…

Cool, refreshing, and somehow ELECTRIC, too! This is one of my favorite shades of blue. I see that next week’s color in The Challenge is celadon, which might be the most difficult for me since umber.

Oh, umber, how you eluded me. I am wondering now if everyone who is doing the Challenge has one (or maybe more) weeks where they feel like they were just a smidgen off in their color choices – and are haunted by that imperfection, like me.

Hah! I’m so neurotic.

All in all, I think I’ve done pretty well. I’d give my choices a “B” overall, and a couple of the ensembles were definitely “A” work.

I think at the end of the Challenge, I will choose and link to my 5 favorites outfits of the year. For now, I’ve got to start snooping around the grid for some celadon!

Happy Independence Day! XoOXoOxoOx
