Orange has not always been a favorite color of mine. One day I purchased an orange cardigan sweater in orange, I received so many compliments when wearing this orange sweater that I now incorporate orange into my wardrobe and home decor. I have orange shoes, a raincoat, a great purse, and scarfs as well as having orange candle holders and candles and metal orange table in my backyard and orange floral arrangements. So I recommend adding orange to your home and your wardrobe. Enjoy the following post, a Sea of Orange.
