Before I get into TRUE COLOUR - I want to ask all pups to say a special prayer for Golden Boy Luke today - he's having surgery - and his mom is very nervous - I imagine Luke isn't too happy either. I just hope there are no thunder storms in Houston to increase his anxiety! We're thinking of you buddy!
Today's TRUE COLOUR is CERISE According to Maerz and Paul in their Dictionary of Color, the first recorded use of CERISE as a color name in English was in 1858. However, it was used at least as early as 1846 in a book of crochet patterns. The CERISE color name comes from the French word meaning cherry. The word "cherry" itself comes from the Norman CERISE. So I guess CERISE is cherry pink cause it sure isn't DEEP RED.
there is an azalea called "CERISE" - we have one - there is probably a rose that is colored CERISE - but we don't have any of those - Bumble bee is an extra treat~
this is the bag that the tooth fairy leaves "golden dollars" in for Livy - it's CERISE
one of mom's favorite artists is Elisabeth Maria Becker...this is one of her original water colors, Elisabeth likes the color CERISE - unfortunately the flash detracts but mom can't figure out how to turn the flash off - this is one of the reasons we didn't have RAINBOW last week!
this is a Taos Sunset - also by Elisabeth Becker - with a CERISE sunset - mom has several other Becker pieces with CERISE in them...but they are nudes and mom worried about them offending someone - one of them is mom so I think she's just too embarrassed to put it up - but she was young and thin and cute when it was done....so........
this is a pair of mom's shoes - you knew she'd have shoes to go with the True Colors didn't you?
this is mom's I-phone....yep, she's got a hot pink cover! does this qualify as CERISE?
this is mom's laptop bag.....now that's what I call HOT PINK but mom says CERISE
so, to recap today's TRUE COLOUR is CERISE - if you'd like to play along - drop by Blue's TRUE COLOUR blog - let her know you're playing and link back to her. Next week's color is TURQUOISE. - that should be interesting........
Mom wants to apologize to all for her rants about the X-DIL - she said this is not the forum for it and she shouldn't have done it. She thinks, after reading, that it all sounds like white trash drama and, of course mom is not WT! [no comment on the x-dil] Bottom line is that the X-DIL has mental problems, and in spite of the diagnosis of her being bi-polar the family court judge continues to allow her to do this stuff....so, we're just going to have to find a way to make the little one be happy. We promise no more rants on her.
