Yes they are! I promised a funny (not literally) story about the roses in my header and at the bottom of the page. See, when I contacted Croco Designs last winter (December, I think) and asked if they could build a site for me, Frauke said sure and sent me a questionnaire. One of the questions was about color. I said I wanted red. And I wanted dark words on a light background.
She asked if I wanted her to use photos or a graphic design. I said I was fine with photos. See, I'd done my homework and clicked over to many, many of her sites. And I loved the moody sensuality in each of them. Many of them had photos of hunky men. And I kind of assumed I would get something with a glamorous couple — maybe a ritzy car, a city background, champagne, diamonds. I had no idea, really!
So when Frauke revealed the design to me recently, I was surprised to see roses. And very pleased — because I hadn't thought about that at all! But here's the funny thing — in my office I have a framed poster. This poster:
What a coincidence, huh? I figured it was meant to be. And she's ever so much smarter than I am, because the hunky men and gorgeous women are already on my book covers. They won't ever compete with people in my header.
What's your favorite flower? Favorite color? Did something ever work out in ways you didn't expect, but turned out to be perfect?
Winner from Monday: Colleen. Email me through my contact page with your address and I'll get the $5 Starbucks card and a book from my stash out to you ASAP!
Stay tuned for more prizes!!
Favorite flower: daisy. Favorite color: pink. That makes me sound a whole lot nicer than I am.
The thing that worked out: Right before the bottom fell out of the market last time, we had reluctantly sold a bunch of stock to do house renovations–always a sound investment. This time, not so much. . . .
Oh Jean, wow did that work out! Yeah, what’s up with these markets. I just hope to ride it out and make some of the money back.
Pink is my favorite color too! I love wearing pink (not that I think I have a lot of pink in my wardrobe lately — must rectify) but I love red for pop.
My favorite flower, in fact, is the tulip. Love tulips. Roses are a close second. 🙂
Favorite Flower: Lily of the Valley, they smell so nice Favorite Favorite Color: Purple
Hi, Nicole! Oh, purple is fab too! And Lily of the Valley. When I lived in Hawaii, we had the most fragrant flowers. You could just walk outside and be blown away by the plumeria tree. So I guess I should stick plumerias on my favorite flower list too, LOL!
Favorite flower is pink poinsettia, best with glitter petals. 🙂 As a Christmas baby, I figured I should just go with the flow!
My favorite color has always been green but now that I am more blonde I am LOVING red!
Hi, Stephanie! And you look fabulous in red, my dahling! Vibrant greens are good for blondes too. 🙂
