brown bear tuesday

day 2 of
color week...


there are people
who like
chocolate
and
there are people
who love
chocolate.
i would pick
crème brulée
over
a chocolate torte
any day.
maybe it's
because
i don't like brown.
it's nice
for food
or
as a
backgroud color;
like our couch
but
i avoid
wearing
and
buying
brown things.
and i am
much more fond
of green things
in nature
than brown.
the actual word
isn't very flattering.
brown
it sounds kind of
frumpy.
but many of my friends
love brown
and look beautiful
in brown
and i have already
seen
beautiful
photos
that make
me appreciate
brown.

bears are brown.
one of my favorite
things
when i was
little
were my bears
(never liked dolls).

so my photo
today
is the
wonderful
fuzzy brown
of one of
my childhood bears,
edgar.


i promised
some postcards
from
the great monday give-away™
here they are...
from jenn


from sooz

from petulant feminine

from astrid


i will leave you
with some of my collages:



more tomorrow.

Wow. Your collages are terrific - I am impressed with the little worlds they make. I especially like the scene on the hill.

A COLLAGE A DAY said...

I truly enjoy the collage on the bottom. The one with the lady in the blue dress. The whole work seems three-dimensional.Very cool effect. Nice layering and wonderful use of scale.
Can't wait to see more!!

Happy 100! Gee, you look great for your age ;-)

Love your bear. I agree the word brown is rather dull. Chocolate (that's the colour not the food) is a much better word.

good day to you. i've been poking around your blog for a while now and i thought today was a fine time to leave a message for you....upon seeing your collages i couldn't resist. while i agree that the bottom one is great, the first one really grabbed me. perhaps its the bug theme but i just love it. keen to see more.

Beautiful, beautiful collages. So awesome. I also never had it much for dolls, much more of a stuffed animal child when I was young. Your little bear is too cute.

Edgar is a rockin' bear! He looks well loved and quite swellegent on his polka dot background.

Shari said...

I eat my fair share of chocolate - but I would take a great creme brulee over chocolate dessert at a restaurant any day. That hard, burnt sugar top that you have to crack with a spoon!! COME ON - chocolate is just smooth.

Oh - I should comment on other things like your cool collages... but now my mind is wandering...
