Brown …

I cannot pretend to be impartial about the colours. I rejoice with the brilliant ones, and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns.

Winston Churchill

Brown. A colour so maligned, but full of such deliciousness as coffee, cream, brown sugar, chocolate, honey, topaz, wheat, grain, spices, beer, molasses, amber, coconut, ginger, chestnut. And toast. Do not go to a diner with me if you will be embarrassed by the following:

Overworked server with sensible shoes and a mile of piled, bleached hair: “White toast or brown, hon?”

Me: “Isn’t all toast brown?”

Maybe it’s just the word. Brown-Frown-UpsideDown. Brown is comfy, soothing color. Nature’s petticoats, hiding under the flashy green-leaf silks and the blue-sky chiffon, brown is what holds the world up. Brown is the world. Earth is brown and everything else is just clinging to the surface as we whirl through space.

For instance – look at this – Matte Picture Jasper. Is this not lovely and calming? This can be quietly casual, or dress it up with some gold accent beads for something a little more chic. The matte finish is silky smooth and fun to stroke. You can totally see yourself with some stretchy bracelets made of this, right?
