We always did, even painted a wall orange in our first house. People were shocked by it, amazing!
:) orange ya glad I.U.O.M.A brings so much joy?
One of my best friends "hates" orange. She was admiring a tablecloth, considering buying it, but it had a teeny stripe of orange in it and that was a deal breaker. It's really interesting to me that people can have such strong likes and dislikes around color. For me it's so much about context--this particular arrangement of these particular colors, and I love being surprised by a new combination that I never would have thought of.
I never thought of orange as my favorite color and then recalled my favorite shirt as I cavorted on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa usa way back in the early-mid 1960's. It was bright orange, pullover, long-sleeved and hopsacking. Together with my green, velvety pants got me told by someone that I looked like a frog.
Now, I wear Liberty bib overalls and a plaid, longsleeve shirt in the cold months and a shortsleeve, 'Hawaiian' shirt when it's warmer.
Y'r ol' Bud, Fike
