I love the colors.

I've been a fan of color for a long time. I don't know of any color I hate, simply some that look really awful on me. The color fetish has had me buy a few leather purses in multi colors. I love them because they are leather and because they are usually well made. The top, from catos that I am wearing in the pic shows all of the colors in the bag. I'm glad cause I bought the bag with no outfit in mind. I was looking on ebay and it said the price was good, the bag in perfect shape. I was totally hooked. But alas, the shirt doesn't look as colorful as it is. The pic shows the colors as more muted than I thought. And it's almost worn out. One more wearing and it goes. The sublimation tops are printed on t shirt fabric for the most part. Hence the pilling. And the fading. Fun while it lasted.

One of the things I have avoided is bright color except in small doses. I felt it called too much attention to my weight and where it is placed. I have a huge belly and big upper hips. From what I've read this makes me a candidate for a heart attack. It also makes some clothes look terrible and makes it hard for me to wear jeans or belts. But I am going to make the effort to shrink into some jeans before the heart attack shows up.

The other entry in the blog is Cheyenne. She is 4 months old now. She is just beautiful but hard to make stand still for pics. She loves to have her belly rubbed. She likes to nap on me. She jumps onto the sofa and onto whoever is there. I just love her to death. I think she is about 35 pounds now. Sometimes I call her Devildog. She chews.

Live is opening up now that Spring is approaching. I'm pleased.

Just FYI I made a new square banner for you to put on your sidebar on your blog. I was looking for your email to email you but couldn't find it.

Go for the color baby!
You don't have be head to toe orange or anything, but don't shy away because of your size.
Dressing in all black or brown will just make you feel sad. Color just makes you feel better and plenty of larger women do a great job of incorporating color into their wardrobes.
