Outrageous Orange #coloryourworld

I thought this might be fun as I’m a lover of colours and as there is a different hex/RGB each day there is a new invitation/try to produce something creative – until the ‘challenge’ is over at the end of April.

Your contribution can come in any form – art, poetry, flash fiction, a tale of a miscellaneous memory – anything, the only caveat – it has to be inspired by the color of the day. You can join in every single day or simply post at your leisure. – Color Your World, 120 Days of Crayola

Why not join me? 🙂

Here is my contribution towards today’s colour –


Outrageous Orange actually – surprisingly – has pinky tones. I had expected a rather brightish deepish orange. Without much time to spare I quickly took a photograph of my ceramic orange tortoise. I couldn’t think of anything that I owned to be as bold an orange as this ornament!

The story behind the contribution – It’s a gift from someone who I rarely think of now, an old boyfriend from 11 years ago, who was visiting me. I took him round interesting places in Norfolk and him knowing I love tortoises – Daisy Elizabeth, my Hermann tort was just a baby then – he suddenly decided to buy me up the window display of a group of tortoises in a charity shop! The tortoise ornament doubles as a money-box or piggy-bank, and sits serenely watching over my sewing machine on a small chest of drawers.

About Oscar Dandelion

Hi, I'm Faith McCord, writer of the Oscar Dandelion books. I love reading, writing, watching films, looking at architecture and general design, embroidery (especially Elizabethan), spending time with my family. I used to enjoy long walks, bodybuilding, going out, however, since my injury my mobility is seriously impaired, so I'm more of a home-body now. I'm interested in meeting other indie / pro writers, so do say 'Hello' ! :)
