Spotlight Friday: GREEN

Is there something different, you may ask. Yes there is. I did change the design of the blog a little. I liked the bubbles with the pictures on the front page, but it did make it a little hard to navigate through my pages. So I chose a more simple layout and less background colors so the focus is on the pictures in my blog.

Speaking of color, the color of the day, this case Wednesday, is green.

Green is the color of growing grass, leaves and emeralds.[2][3][4] On the spectrum of visible light, it is located between blue andyellow. It is evoked by light with a predominant wavelength of roughly 495–570 nm.

The modern English word green comes from the Middle English and Anglo-Saxon word grene, from the same Germanic root as the words “grass” and “grow”.[5] By far the largest contributor to green in nature is chlorophyll, the chemical by which plantsphotosynthesize and convert sunlight into energy.

In surveys made in Europe and the United States, green is the color most commonly associated with nature, youth, spring, hope andenvy. In western culture It is the color of permission and safety.[6] It is also often associated with the culture of Gaelic Ireland, and with the environmental movement.[7] In China green is the symbol of fertility. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green)

I like green. I love the Spring, when every plant starts to show their first little speck of green peaking out and coming to full bloom. For me it is an exciting time, new beginnings and new adventures. For me Chartreuse represents the Spring.

What is your favorite green?

Just look at those variations of greens.

So let’s dive in and see what wonderful creations we can find on Zibbet when we search for the word, green.

Spotlight Friday: Pink

The next color for the week is for Tuesdays, pink. It represents the Planet Mars.

According to surveys in Europe and the United States, pink is the color most commonly associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, the feminine, and the romantic. When combined with violet or black, it is associated with eroticism and seduction. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink)

In Psychology the color pink resembles Hope. It is said to be warm and inspiring, gives us a sense of comfort and the feeling of everything is going to be ok.

I have never felt comfortable around the color pink, I don’t know why. I don’t hate it, it just doesn’t feel right for me.

I found a page where it said:

If you dislike pink:

(http://www.empower-yourself-with-color-psychology.com/personality-color-pink.htm

  • You have unresolved emotional problems from your childhood with either your mother or father.
  • You may crave more excitement and action in your life.
  • Pink may be just too sickly sweet for you or too girly and feminine.
  • You are not the compassionate and nurturing type.

Well, the first and the third point hit the nail on the head.  The second and last one I would say total opposite.

For sure I wouldn’t paint any walls in my house in any pink shade. I do love looking at light pink flowers and I love seeing the sky turning all kinds of pinks when the sun rises or sets.  Looking at my projects either knitting or macrame, there is rarely pink in it.

Do you like pink, where do you incorporate it?

Let us see what www.zibbet.com has to offer in pink:

Spotlight Friday: Yellow

The color associated with Monday is yellow, the color of the moon.

Yellow is the lightest hue of the spectrum.

It is also the most brightest color, most visible. On a rainy day, you still see the pedestrian crossing that is colored in yellow.

School bus yellow is a color which was especially formulated for use on school buses in North America in 1939. The color is now officially known in Canada and the U.S. as National School Bus Glossy Yellow and was originally called National School Bus Chrome. The pigment used for this color was, for a long time, the lead-containing chrome yellow.[1]

The color was chosen because it attracts attention and is noticed quickly in peripheral vision, faster than any other color. Scientists describe this as follows: “Lateral peripheral vision for detecting yellows is 1.24 times greater than for red.”[2] (wikipedia)

Color Psychologist say that yellow is uplifting, puts you in a cheerful mood, offers hope and happiness.

It is said to be that yellow the best color to create enthusiasm for life and can awaken confidence and optimism.

Looking around I don’t have very many yellow things in our house. Yes, the living room walls are in a muted light mustard yellow. I don’t think I have a yellow piece of clothing, besides my hospital socks. Oh hold on, I knitted one yellow top. I only wear that though when my skin is not so pail anymore.

So, let’s go hunt some yellow on Zibbet.

Spotlight Friday: RED

I was sitting at my kitchen table in the morning, pondering about what I could write. I had a few ideas, but non really grabbed me. And also I didn’t find too many items on Zibbet that would work with it.

Then I thought, how about quotes, didn’t work as well either. Maybe I just found the wrong ones? Starting my day with tens neck muscles and a slight headache just wasn’t doing any good. So I went and did some Yin yoga. The reason why I was tense? Well I had a cat sleeping in the curve of my neck, I woke up to it because he was cleaning himself and licked my ear a few times and his whiskers tickled me. I tried to move a little, but he had my hair pinned with his paws.

I looked outside the window while doing my yoga and thought to myself, “oh boy, there is no color out there today, all gray in gray.” Well, yes it is a color, but non that cheered me up.

That was my motivation for my search this week. COLOR . I searched the internet for a little and wondered if there was a specific color for each day.

Color is everywhere, color can influence your mood.

So let’s start with Sunday.

Sunday is a RED day, due to the Planet Sun. So wear red clothing, or  add red Ruby or Garnet to your outfit.

Let’s see what I can find on Zibbet that would fit.
