Monday Musings: Layering On Color

Monday Musings: Layering On Color

Happy Monday ladies. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We did a little more gardening (my apologies to the plants I inadvertently murdered) and cleaned the garage. When I say I’m delighted with the garage results, what I mean is that my husband finally let me toss some “junk”.

We often have a “breakdown of communication” when it comes to what is garbage and what’s worth keeping in our family. Case in point, a roll- down ladder to escape a building from the second floor. We now live in a one-story home and intend to do so going forward. I say it’s time to donate it. He insists we need to keep it. I put it in the donate pile and went in for a cup of tea. Later in the afternoon, I found it back on the shelf. The discussion continues;)

Let’s get to what else is on my mind this week.

Color

I am so over neutrals these days, it’s palpable. Pay no attention to the black and white shirt and gray sweater I’m wearing above…I need to do laundry. My neutral decor is looking a bit flat to me these days too. I know its a reaction to being home and lack of variety outside the house so I wonder how many other people are feeling the same way. It’s just as easy to add bits of color to your home as your wardrobe so that’s on my agenda. I wish I had a gallon of Duck Egg Blue paint so I could give my family room a makeover. I would order these in a heartbeat but I’ve always believed food looks most appetizing on white plates.

Arthritis

Yes, again. It’s on my mind a lot lately because my hands are miserable. The knitting I started several weeks ago has been a dismal failure. The needles are so large, my hands cramp after a short amount of time. Imagine my surprise to find the wool I’m struggling to knit with comes in Duck Egg Blue. I sense the hand exercise from knitting might be good for my hands, but not that project. I tried this hand yoga, but I think I need to just put this project down and find another. I’ve restarted on my Gin Raisins regime and hope they will help.

Layering

I’m spending more time on Pinterest than usual and find myself attracted to outfits with layers. Lots of layers. Have you noticed that some women routinely pile on layers to create unique looks? We could all be wearing the same blouse, but the layers we add will give it a distinctive personality. Most of these looks I’m finding are for cool-weather but I’m not going to let it stop me from experimenting when it warms up.

Straw

I have been shopping for a summer tote and fallen in love with straw and wicker. I do have several handbags in straw and raffia but I realize that I use a tote so often, my handbags don’t get seen. That means I need a natural fiber tote 🙂 I’ve long admired this one from Pamela Munson, but it’s pretty pricey. I love the cornhusk weave that resembles knitted stitches. My hunt goes on.

I’m cooking more than ever these days because it’s one way I can nurture my loved ones. What are you doing more of?

Thanks for reading ladies and remember to be extra kind to yourself.

    Interesting collection of topics today. Fun. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Chuckled about the ladder.

    I’ve been over grey for home decor for a long time. Color has energy and I think we are all feeling the need for some emotional /mental boosts. Even a bit of an appealing color can spark the brain chemistry. We need color. I’ve recently encouraged a friend to paint his front door a rich French blue. The house is red brick so it should look very happy.

    I too love layers of clothing , but our climate does not often allow for it. Clothing can become quite monotonous here. I do miss the fun of creative dressing… belts, long sleeves, scarves ( make our necks sweat) , boots etc. I need a vacation just so I can wear a different variety of clothes!

    We are all about natural organic fibers here. (Leather just gets moldy , silk and rayon disintegrates, as does most rubber.). So there is no end to the fun satchels and totes with tropical/ beach motifs and color in natural and weather proof materials. I love the two large totes my daughter bought for me in weather-proof fiber, woven in a multitude of gorgeous hot bright colors with bright orange handles. Trying to find the right sandals to wear with them. I really want some great espadrilles in a bright fun color..

    As for what we are doing…Sunday my daughter moved her office home for the duration and is explaining to clients why, “no we can’t have a meeting in person”. . Quite exasperating that people still aren’t taking this all seriously.
    We are spending more time together but not overstepping space. She is committed to doing more to address her health issues and as I support her, I benefit as well. We are taking walks up and down our long , uphill driveway several times a day, admiring the neighbors orchids peeping over their wall, maki g friends with the other neighbors little dog Bella, and leaving tidbits for the beautiful lizards basking in the sun.
    Not snacking or eating out of boredom. We are going to do a month of journaling to record our personal experience of the next month. She does great photo journaling. I’m doing drawings and brief daily comments in a bound sketchbook.
    Our windows are all wide open to the rare cool breezes … for which I am most grateful… and so far we are faring well.
    Being introverts has its advantages. We are well suited to thriving in isolation.
    Best wishes to all 🌺🌺🌺
    Jennifer, have you tried essential oils for sore joints?
    DoTerra has one we love .. Deep Blue. I use the kind without camphor because it bothers me. But my daughter gets relief for her pain with it. I like the capsules for my tendon and joint pain.

    Jennifer,
    I am new to this site as I never really had time to browse the internet before, but am really enjoying your posts. I actually already wear many of the same types of clothes and jewelry you do and I had to laugh when I saw that you wear arcopedico’s, I own 3 pairs,
    My question is I am allways on the lookout for black pants. My favorite brand, Focus 2000 are no longer available and I have been trying different brands ever since.
    I saw you like Eileen Fisher but they aren’t available now either. Any other suggestions?

    I have been looking for a straw summer tote, and found one I fell in love with and I ordered it right away as I thought it would sell out fast. It arrived two weeks and I am in love. It is the Julia Weaved Bag from Sezane I think this will be my summer tote bag for years. It is very well made and charming.

    My straw bag collection is now complete. I have this tote and a black one that is a similar size and shape. I have a Ted Baker crossbody bag that is perfect for everyday use in summer and looks a bit dressy. I found a fun circle straw bag I ordered on Etsy from Indonesia about a year before they became all the rage that is perfect for casual and vacation looks. Last year, I got a gorgeous straw clamshell clutch from J.McLaughlin on Nantucket for my birthday, and it is perfect for special occasions.

    Laughing at the garage clean-up! I started that a couple of weeks ago & had to give up. Except for the (small & I swear getting smaller!) spot my car sits in nearest the door into the house, our garage is full of motorcycles, parts of motorcycles & boxes of bits of motorcycles. My husband has been bike crazy since he was a kid & I swear he’s never thrown out a bike, a frame, a motor, a spring or a bolt in 50 years. His hobby of restoring vintage Harleys has turned into a lucrative if unplanned sideline since he retired & he’s as happy as a clam during this enforced isolation because he can putter out there all day without interruption. He came in this afternoon, greasy & dirty, tee-shirt torn, knuckles all skinned, grinning from ear to ear like a ten year old, asking if I wanted to go for a ride to test out his latest project. Of course I said yes (beats cleaning the bathroom, which is what I’d been planning on doing). Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow 🙂

    Jennifer, try Etsy for straw, wicker, rattan & bamboo bags — there are some fabulous ones, all unique & at decent prices, including vintage if that’s your style. I like supporting the artists & entrepreneurs on Etsy, too. I was poking around there the other day looking for vintage macrame bags & got so mesmerized at all the wonderful things I didn’t come back to the real world for hours 🙂

    Yep. I’m in need of color too. I even ordered a new colorful duvet for my bed. Big change for me since it has always been white. I find dressing in more cheerful Spring time colors helps brighten my mood too. Our city is sheltering in place except for necessities like groceries and meds. I’m thankful my son is getting my medicine and I’m also thankful for the people delivering my groceries. No one is on the streets. Your blog is one I look forward to every day. Thank you.

    It’s interesting how we react when given a lot of time around our houses, isn’t it. I am feeling a pull to be outside more. Walking on a nature path, seeing birds, ponds, rabbits, going about their usual spring doings, feels good to me. Gardening is a pull also, maybe because I am looking out my windows more. If my yard had better dirt and less rock, I would plant colorful flowers, I may opt for clipping what’s there, mostly I’m glad it’s not too hot, or too cold and I can go outside. I’m not much of a cook/ cleaning person, so I’m keeping that to a minimum. I think fresh air and open windows feels hopeful though. I have dyed and cut my hair, to “moderate “success”, well, at least for now. The internet is a wonderful lifeline, as are blogs, utube, Netflix, movies, and books, for a social “ fix”. So thanks, for this blog. Stay safe, everyone, help the people who have to keep working in these uncertain times.

    With this isolation (I thought I had been in for a month, looked at my calendar and it was only two weeks!) I too have been looking more at Pinterest and capsule wardrobes and how to dress for your body shape.

    All body shape calculators have me as a rectangle , ala model shaped, but I share nothing in common with Gwyneth Paltrow.

    I am 76 years old, weigh 155 and am 5’7″ with measurements of 39, 33, 40. Please tell me, as every “stylist” has a different opinion, what type of jeans look best on me, e.g., straight, slim, flared, bootcut, etc. I do not like the very popular ankle now as mine are not thin.

    Thx for any input you can provide.

      It’s hard to say not seeing you but I do know a boot cut would be flattering. Your body shape is determined by your shoulders too so that matters.

    I loved today’s post. A little of this, a little of that. The garage clean up was funny. Susan B’s comment was hilarious. I leave the garage to my husband so it rarely gets cleaned. If I ever tackled if, sorted it wrong or threw out “good” stuff, it would not be pretty. So, when I drive in I try not to look at the mess. I guess if I get the whole house he can have his garage.
    I’ve been busy in my garden too. The weather on the Island has been beautiful. Perfect for gardening. Yesterday, I dragged all the outdoor furniture out of the shed. I’m thinking of painting my wicker chairs. I was going to paint them grey but after your talk on needing some colour in your life, I’m rethinking that choice. But, what colour?
    I’m still loving the neutrals in my home but I have added a good dose of white in my decor. It just brightens the whole house. 😀

      Interesting about your garage wars. We bought our house with an attached garage and an extra large garage for all of my hubby’s “special items”. I call it junk. Anyway there was overflow from his garage to mine?and until last fall, I could not use my garage for my car. We did a purge and my car just fits. I am longing for more vibrant, pick me up colours. Have been doing a lot more creative meals and enjoy it more. Helps that my hubby likes to cook sometimes and is a wonderful cook.

    Your story of cleaning the garage made me laugh! It comes under, “pick your battles” at our house. My husband keeps EVERYTHING, including the boxes things came in….might need to send it back someday, more valuable on the collector’s market if you have the original box, might need it for something else someday, yada, yada. 🙄 I have a friend who said cleaning the garage was not a problem. She cleaned out her husband’s side and he cleaned out hers. Ya, they’re divorced now.

    You look lovely. The gingham top is so cheerful. I’ve been doing more cleaning. I like natural cleaners and bleach/Lysol flare up my asthma, but they are safest right now. So I’ve been mopping with bleach and using Lysol wipes. Ugh! My hands are a mess! I cannot wait to use my gentle organic lemon or lavender sprays again when this is over. It’s amazing what one misses. I’ve been cleaning out the basement and garage. It feels wonderful to get rid of things. I’m glad you’ve been making progress on your garage too! Stay healthy. Xx

    I had to smile when I saw your post because just fifteen minutes earlier I had polished my fingernails a bright, cheerful pink. I have only worn neutral colors in nail polish for probably five years now. But this morning I decided this was how I was going to lift my spirits today. It is working. I am looking down at my hands and it makes me feel happy and like spring is here. So glad your son is delivering your groceries. I am thinking of going to a grocery delivery service so I don’t have to go in the store.

    This morning I went from room to room to see what I could do to add some color and had lots of ideas that would lead to trips to the store. Since we are in a lockdown plan those idea’s are on the to do list for later. Not sure if it is the combination of being confined to the house or the rain. Most likely both. So this mornings post made me feel much better to know I am not the only one. I have been doing a lot of reading but just can not read anything heavy with all the sad news. I am currently reading The last Days of Café Leila by Donia Bijan. I had picked it up sometime ago and now have the time to read it and I am glad I did because it is a wonderful book. I have been calling family and friends I have not talked to in awhile and there have been some lovely conversations. I hope all are safe and doing safe distancing.

    Duck egg blue is a great color and one I’m drawn to. I prefer white dinnerware and like to add color with a charger, salad plate or napkin. Your gardening outfit looks far better than what I usually wear when planting…..how do you stay so clean!? When I over use my hands, have a gripping problem with my left thumb, I wear fingerless compression gloves for a few hours or over night. Seems to help.

    Take good care.

    Hi Jennifer, I suffer from the same arthritis hand malady. The gin-soaked raisins didn’t give me much relief, but I have had wonderful results using 1 tablespoon Certo mixed into 1 cup of grape juice. (Certo is pectin used for canning & can be purchased at the grocery store.) Pectin can also be purchased in powder form, but getting it to dissolve in the grape juice will make you crazy.

    Make this fresh daily. Some people make a big batch for convenience, but benzenes can develop. One serving at a time is the way to go. It can also help lower cholesterol. Hope this gives you some relief; it has worked so well for me.

    Those plates you showed are so beautiful. I used to think that white plates were the best for showing off food too. Then I bought cobalt ones and it makes my heart happy to put them on the table and fill them with colorful, delicious food.
    My home has gotten more colorful over the years and I must say I love it. I suggest you buy that Duck Egg Blue paint from a place that delivers and get to work. We all will feel better if we have things to show from this extraordinary time. (Oh, and set your table with those pretty dishes too)

    I suddenly got tired of neutrals around my house and garden. I discovered spray paint!

    I just painted 2 old metal garden chairs bright yellow and I have new red cushions I got on clearance at the end of last summer. Then I painted some concrete paving stones. Wow! So cheery!

    I painted my boring black metal mailbox bright blue.

    When I run out of things to paint, I’ll be dying lampshades on some old neutral lamps.

    If our isolation lasts long enough I may try restoring and painting some old wooden furniture. I’m shopping for interesting knobs and pulls online.

    I’m enjoying creative time, not rushing through life with my usual busy schedule. Time was always so measured and now it’s not.

    In the province and city I live in, since we are basically in a lock-down mode with only ‘essential services’ being open and being a senior citizen am restricted even more; I am doing a lot more meal preparation that can be frozen . i.e.: Breads and dinners rolls (from scratch), individual servings of meat and poultry pies, quiches, even comfort food like pizza etc. etc. In other words, am taking extra precaution with what I purchase (nothing deli or restaurant prepared) since even the (large) pharmacy I deal with has just reported two of its staff members have tested positive for the virus (and they didn’t realize they had it and then there is my son who has been in self isolation since the 10th of March since his return from Peru) . Also have been doing various sewing projects that include accent touches for one of our spare bedrooms. (Adding trim on pre-made curtains to bump them up a notch, recovering a small desk ‘n vanity bench seat etc.) Also since our weather is not co-operating to be outside; IF boredom sets in I just might be tempted to add a piece of my own canvas artwork to the mix … lol!
    On a brighter note; I too am in the market for a natural fiber purse (wicker not so much) but prefer something on a smaller scale rather than a tote.
    In closing; STAY SAFE and PLEASE PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING if out and about Jennifer.

    P.S.:For the latter we Canuks are using the length of a hockey stick for measurement, so perhaps something similar can be devised with the usage of that escape ladder … winks!

    Good morning Jennifer, I think we all have been doing pretty much the same things while self isolating. I’m an introvert so it’s easier for me to putter around the house. I’m sorry to hear about the arthritis flare-up preventing you from making that lovely project. Please use organic raisins when making your gin raisins!

    Did we all simultaneously get sick of neutrals? Seems like it. I have started adding lots of blues and pinks and soft greens- I’m considered a “summer” but I gravitate to the clearer colors rather than the muted ones.
    I love colorful and patterned dishes. However I like to use plain plates with something like a green leafy pattern on the border- it’s like having a garnish without messing with parsley or whatever. Lol.
    Stay healthy everyone!

Some of those recipes I pinned a long time ago are getting a try now. Doing barre class online (thank you Pure Barre! Edina!) to stay on track 3 times per week and adding walks when weather is pleasant. And I try to take time every morning to be thankful for good health and a comfortable home. Getting together for a COVID block party later with neighbors, everyone BYOB and snacks as desired so no work for anyone and low risk.

    Working, disinfecting, cooking, cleaning, 30 minutes of postive social media for sanity and sleep.
    Thanks for showing me life is still going on out there!
    Yay to colour always!
    Btw, I have my standby white dishes and two sets of floral – spring and fall. 😁

    I have been have “Throw that our” conversations with my husband for years! It will continue! Once I retire in May, I will work harder to get rid of ( to me) junk! I am consider mixing my clothing up to see what new combinations I might make!

      I usually do it when he isn’t around so we avoid those negotiations. The problem is he’s always around these days;)Ah well, we will get through this.

    I am still recovering from surgery before Xmas, so staying in isn’t too bad. Read lots, but really need something good (like “where the Crawdads Sing) Any suggestions My husband is the outside person. He has started painting all our pot planters. I Have been trying to get back into sewing. So jumped in yesterday. However, find the older fingers are very clumsy, so it was a slower go than planned! Oh well! No hear that the President i s saying it may be April 30 before the all clear! gives me lots of time to maybe get a sewing project done!
    Best to all and stay safe.

      I found that with my fingers too:). I wonder if I could order a gallon of paint for delivery? My fingers don’t have to be as nimble for that. Hang in there. At least your husband has a project to keep him busy.
