The DMS Wants to Know!

Yesterday I had the weirdest experience. For the entire day, everywhere I looked, I saw lime green. It's like the color caught my attention and wouldn't let it go. Waiting in line at a store, I noticed the first spot of color. A lady with a bright lime green purse was standing in front of me. The very next thing I looked at was the exact same green (It was a poster hanging on the wall behind the register). Then, as I turned to leave, a guy with a lime green shirt brushed by me. And this was just the beginning of it. Seriously, I saw the same color for hours on end. I realized that just noticing the color throughout the day made me think of lime green and how it makes me feel. Turns out, I think it's a really fun color. I feel lively, but relaxed. Cool and breezy, spirited and minty. I thought about spring, and different shades of green. My brain actually whirled away on these thoughts for a while, and so did Lizzy's.  We had such a fun conversation about colors! We'd love to hear what you guys think!

The DMS wants to know...
What color really moves you? What does it make you think about?

We'll tell you ours if you tell us yours!


  1. That picture is so awesome, Fairday? Did you take it?

  2. LOL Marcus! Yes, he's cool isn't he? Found him on a cucumber plant in my mom's garden last year- I have no idea what he is and I sort of don't want to find out, I like to keep things a little mysterious : ) ~ F

  3. I had to delete...the bird got in my way and I could not see what I was spelling!!!

    I love red!!!

    Just think about's strawberries, pasta sauce, pizza and watermelon...I could live on those

  4. I have to agree. Green is my favorite color, though I tend to favor the shade that is more similar to the green of grass and leaves. Spring is my favorite season, the whole cycle of rebirth and renewal.

  5. Patty- I love red- it always makes me think of rubies, which may be one of the most spectacular things in existence... according to me, anyhow! ~F

  6. I have been into pink for 2 years now, and lime green! I like the contrast of the 2 colors together.

  7. It's interesting that I came across this post because I am really loving the colour green lately!

  8. I'm into blues, whites, and reds lately. But that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the calmness the greens offer.

  9. The bright, leafy green always calms me down and brings on a hopeful smile. I love a good sea's blue. That one makes me smile, too, though in a melancholy way. But hey, I like melancholia.

    Lemon yellow reminds me of Childhood.


  10. I like the color orange. It reminds me of sports and running for some reason-

  11. There are so many amazing colors. When people ask me I always say blue- but I really love pruple. It is so bright and cheery. I love to write in purple pen and wear purple. It makes me feel happy! So many colors make me feel different ways. :)

  12. @roro- Purple is awesome!

    @Jen and Megan- Green is always welcoming to me.

    @Donna- I like pink too. I go on a kick with it sometimes!

    @Nancy- There are so many beautiful blues!

    @Claudine- You made me picture such gorgeous scences!

    @Marcus- Orange is so fresh!

    I especially love when I see all the colors together- rainbows are the best!

  13. How wild--I've been thinking about orange today. I've been working with my little man on his colors ;) so fun :0)
