What time is it?

I am the type that always NEEDS to know what time it is. In my office, I have a clock on every wall. See, what did I tell you. Here are some weird, fun and even disturbing clocks.

Color of the Week

Canary Yellow!

Oh, the ever famous canary yellow. The first time that I ever realized that this was a color to consider was in grade school. Flyers and other important papers that my teachers handed me were always in the ‘canary yellow’ 8-1/2x 11″ paper. Oh, those were the simplest of times, the best of times.

Yellow is the color evoked by light that stimulates both the L and M (long and medium wavelength) cone cells of the retina about equally, with no significant stimulation of the S (short-wavelength) cone cells.[2] Light with a wavelength of 570–580 nm is yellow, as is light with a suitable mixture of red and green. Yellow’s traditional RYB complementary color is purpleviolet, or indigo, while its colorimetrically defined complementary color in both RGB and CMYK color spaces is blue.

The Yellow Canary (Serinus flaviventris) is a small passerine bird in the finch family. It is a resident breeder in much of the western and central regions of southern Africa and has been introduced to Ascension and St Helena islands.

Color of the Week

Lilac.

One of my favorite color since I was a little girl. It is a feminine color, but not ‘girly’ like pink. Such a great hue of purple.

Lilac is a color that is a pale tone of violet that is a representation of the average color of most lilac flowers. It might also be described as light purple. The colors of some lilac flowers may be equivalent to the colors shown below as rich lilac or deep lilac. There are other lilac flowers that are colored red-violet.

Color of the Week

Mint Green.

The color mint green is a brilliant tint of the color mint. Mint green is also a brilliant tint of spring green. (Spring green is a color that is the color on the color wheel that is precisely halfway between cyan and green (sometimes mislabeled as aquamarine on the RGB color wheel).

Friday’s Found Fun

If I didn’t have a dog who likes to climb things (I swear he thinks he is a cat sometimes) and has nail that grow like weeds, and fur that seems to get into everything….I would have these stones somewhere in my house. If I did not have a space for them, I would make one. These can be found on Etsy (as well as other felted wool accessories), VivaTerra, and can even be found in some local decor and furniture stores.

Color of the Week

Grass Green.

I am growing quite fond of the grass green color. Every time I drive by a field of grass and smell that odor, it takes me back to the wondrous time of my childhood and all the soccer games that I had either played in or watched from the sidelines. To me this color is refreshing and wholesome. In this modern day and the environment being on everyones minds, grass green could not be more appropriate.  Love it!

Green is a color, the perception of which is evoked by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with a wavelength of roughly 520–570 nanometres. In the subtractive color system, it is not a primary color, but is created out of a mixture of yellow and blue, or yellow and cyan; it is considered one of the additive primary colors. On the HSV color wheel, also known as the RGB color wheel, the complement of green is magenta; that is, a purplecolor corresponding to an equal mixture of red and blue light. On a color wheel based on traditional color theory (RYB), the complementary color to green is considered to be red.

The word green is closely related to the Old English verb growan, “to grow”. It is used to describe plants or the ocean. Sometimes it can also describe someone who is inexperienced, jealous, or sick. In the United States of America, green is a slang term for money, among other things. Several colloquialisms have derived from these meanings, such as “green around the gills”, a phrase used to describe a person who looks ill.

Culturally, green has broad and sometimes contradictory meanings. In some cultures, green symbolizes hope and growth, while in others, it is associated with death, sickness, envy, or the devil. The most common associations, however, are found in its ties to nature. For example, Islam venerates the color, as it expects paradise to be full of lush greenery. Green is also associated with regeneration, fertility and rebirth for its connections to nature. Recent political groups have taken on the color as symbol of environmental protection and social justice, and consider themselves part of the Green movement, some naming themselves Green parties. This has led to similar campaigns in advertising, as companies have sold green, or environmentally friendly, products.
