Orange is...

...a mandala coloured by our younger son...... a Fair Trade toucan!..... a recycled Vietnamese rice sack...
... and its partner...
...a cushion that belonged to my grandmother...
... my carrot salad this lunchtime!...

... the corner of a patchwork cushion (once baby dungarees)...
... another corner of the same cushion (offcuts from diningroom curtains in our first home)...
... an embroidered rose on my England flag... ... a retro sewing basket...
... a raffia basket made by son number one...
...autumn in our garden...
... a fu dog puppet...
... a Chinese drum bought by son 1 at a Vide Greniers...... and the other side of the same drum...
... and a fox, on son 2's breakfast bowl. Thanks so much to Lynn, of The Little Red Hen, for letting me get involved in her colour week! Find and visit the other participants here.

Wow! You really did a thorough Orange Hunt in your house! I should be ashamed of putting up only 1 :)

Thank you for stopping by my blog.
Love to check back on your blog, tomorrow!
Have a nice Tuesday Evening :)

Oh wow. You did find a lot of orange. Thank you for sharing.

I'm very interested in that rice sack planter.

Wow what beautiful photographs, and I am sure your equally beautiful marmalade in their pretty jars look as spectacular too :)

I love all your orange photos! Wow, I'm really scrambling to find orange around here. :-) I think my favorite of yours might be the carrot salad -- great photo!
