All things Orange

I adore the color orange. Can you tell? =) If there’s an orange shirt in the store, I gravitate towards it. I own an orange kindle cover, and yet have no kindle. I have orange tennis shoes, orange socks, orange undies…well, you probably didn’t need to know that part.

Yes, I even own an orange cat.

For those of you observant enough to notice I’ve changed my website, my color preference is pretty obvious.

So in observance of All Things Orange, here’s my super duper smash up of fun links – all of them orange.

An orange Porsche. Honey, I think we should buy a new car…..




Orange Mushrooms Seriously? Orange mushrooms? Even I, a defender for truth, justice and the Orange Way have never thought of such a thing….




Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary Foundation

The Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary Foundation is a A Conservation Initiative to Protect Monarch Butterfly Wintering Habitat in Mexico. You might wonder what a gal from Iowa cares about butterflies in Mexico? Our little farm is a stopping place for migrating monarch butterflies. Every year, thousands, grouped just like they are in this photo stop by our mulberry trees for a rest. It’s the most amazing sight.




Orange Sand Dunes in the Namib-Naukluft National Park. Absolutely huge enormous sand dunes, reaching up to 1000 feet above the desert floor. Can ou imagine all of that orange? Squee! The orange color develops over time as iron in the sand is oxidized, like rusty metal; the older the dune, the brighter the color.





Orange Inflatable Furniture – there is no explanation for this. Go look, I’ll wait til you come back.




Orange and red snake skin Stiletto’s from Michael Antonio. LOOK at the toes on these!







Glow UV Orange Contact Lenses Only £24.99. I simply must have a pair of these.







Orange Sherbet Shower Gel (adding these to my shopping list!)

Orange Lip Balm

Orange Steampunk Goggles

Orange Garnet, Silver and Gold Ring


And finally, men can have orange underwear too. Equal opportunity after all.

  • Well hello kitty, indeed. Nice. Love the new look! I admit, orange is not a color I embrace much, mostly because it doesn’t look good on me. But I do have an orange cat. He’s the bestest (if patience pushing) cat ever.

    That inflatable furniture actually looks comfortable.

  • Orange you glad you like orange?

  • Thanks Terri! I feel the same way about purple…I rarely wear it, have maybe three shirts in purple out of my current 15 foot tall stack of t-shirts. The inflatable furniture? My cats would have it in a heartbeat…pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffftttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt…..no more furniture!

  • Jen…lol…not everyone can be an orange fiend like me…….

  • I used to love orange too. My friend got me an orange cactus once. It eventually died…a green thumb I do not have. Maybe it’s orange. I am now more partial to combinations of brown, pink, and orange. *grin*

  • Angela, I’m one of those people who absolutely LOVES it when the “in” colors are neons. Neon green, neon pink, neon orange. Then, for a few months, I’m actually in style…..lol……I’ll be one of those little old ladies with orange hair too, I’m sure.

  • Carrie,
    The blog looks so fun. I like the colors, the layout and the fact that your “follow me” buttons are so easy to find. Great job.
    Oh, and the shoes are wonderful (I love love love the shoes — see my blog if you wonder…)
    Cheers,
    Angela

  • Orange! I love it too. Okay, not as much as you do, but I do gravitate towards it.

    Gotta love the cockroach killer stilettos too. 😀 Bought a pair of similar shoes for an interview once and my driving ruined them. (Riding the clutch!)

  • Glad you like Angela…I’m still tweaking, but I’m loving it too!

  • Bridgette…I have no control when it comes to orange. If it’s orange, I must have it. Possibly excluding the mushrooms. =)

  • Aw, this blog is loads of fun. I’m an orange fan too. Wearing lurid orange nail polish on my fingers and toes right now, as a matter of fact. Thought you might appreciate this orange ‘solar pops’ van that I stumbled across today: http://blackeiffel.blogspot.com/2011/08/solar-power-pops.html

  • Okay, where the heck is the football jersey of my beloved University of Tennessee Volunteers. As I always tell my wife, there’s nothing like 110,000 rednecks dressed in blaze orange to get a football team fired up. If you ever went to a game, you would go into orange overload. You want orange? Check this out (the Picture titled “checkerboard end zone” gives you a sense of the sea of orange) http://smokeys-trail.com/TN/traditions.html GO VOLS!!!

  • Naomi – what an excellent van!! What fun! I could certainly use one of those pops today – it’s already over 80 degrees! I too have orange nail polish, but use it carefully…..lol…don’t want to over do with my orange shirt and orange watch and orange shoes AND orange polish! =)

  • KerrY…..what a blast…an entire stadium of people voluntarily (get it? VOLUNTARILY?) wearing orange…..looks fab, and sorry I forgot about the football team!
