“Colour is the language of the poets. It is astonishingly lovely. To speak it is a privilege.” - Keith Crown
.
Today’s Co-host is someone I love and greatly admire for a myriad of reasons.
.
A published poet and fabulous photographer, Michelle @michellemarksauthor is able to connect  to the heart through both her words and images, which I think you will agree is a rare gift.
.
I gave Michelle the challenge of creating three prompts for our ‘Quotes & Colours’ game based on contrast...of course she nailed it.
.
I can’t wait to read your responses to:
1. Poem
2. Texture
3. Destination .
Happy day friend, I hope it’s brimful of just the right amount of contrasting elements.

“Why do two colours, put one next to the other, sing?” - Pablo Picasso
.
Who can answer Pablo’s question?
.
To be honest, I’m not entirely sure why, but I know I do like to make ‘colour songs’!
.
We’re playing today’s game of ‘Quotes & Colours’ with the delightful Cynthia @ahintofcyn who has chosen the following words for you to link to a pop of colour:
.
1. Joy
2. Surprise
3. Perspective
.
If you’ve not met Cynthia yet, I know you’ll be enthralled by her creative ways. 
What she can conjure with a few stems and a leaf, regularly pops my eyes.
.
Happy weekend my friend, I hope it’s a goodie xx

“I’ve learned to create a palette, a vocabulary of ways to take pictures.” - Annie Leibovitz .
An artist’s palette can take many forms and in my mind, be as intriguing as the art it’s used to create.
.
The process of painting the little watercolor tiles that I’ve used throughout this series has meant that I’ve stretched my palette to incorporate colours that I might not normally gravitate towards.
.
Someone who know all about the joy of colour and uses the most vibrant palette to spark creativity is my co-host for today’s game of ‘Quotes & Colours’, Jo from @sayhellojo.
.
Have fun matching ‘palette’ to Jo’s list of prompts:
.
1. Rainbow
2. Unity
3. Joy
.
Once you’ve written your responses below, pop on over to Jo’s gallery and say “Hi!”...I’m sure you’ll delight in her true colour loving ways!
.
PS: looking at my image, I know that I’m missing a colour. If you think you know what it is, leave me a separate note xx

“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.” - Groucho Marx
.
Dark humour, well not really but I’m sure you get my drift.
.
I love the dark, inky navy in today’s image and the notion of blue-black is a favourite too.
.
My co-host today is Jacqui @flameitcandlecoperth She’s the master of taming the dark with her absolutely divine candle range...secretly, the navy boho is my fave.
.
Jacqui has chosen the following three words for you to make your own connections to dark.
.
I’m sure your answers will be illuminating...sorry, I’ll stop now and let you play:
.
1. Strength
2. Creativity
3. Simplicity
.
Remember to visit Jacqui and delight in her delicious soy candles xx

“In nature, light creates the colour. In the picture, colour creates the light.” - Hans Hofmann.
.
My co-host today is Kell @cactuswildflower.
.
Pop on over and you’ll see straight away why I asked her to write the prompts for today’s colour prompt - light.
.
Creating the art for today was quite tricky and I’m not entirely sure about it, but I tell you who has a perfect image...Kell. .
Pop on over and see if you can pick the one that I love, leave a note for Kell and tag me when you find it. I’ll let you know if it’s the one I’m thinking of.
.
Now, onto our game. We’re linking light with the following words:

1. Play
2. Sparkle 
3. Lightbulb moment
.
Happy day, I hope that you enjoy at least one moment of light-hearted fun xx

“There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination. Living there you’ll be free if you truly wish to be.” - Willy Wonka
.
Chocolate lovers unite!
.
I love how Chantelle from @fatmumslim has chosen this for today’s colour descriptor...brown simply isn’t as enticing is it?
.
When I asked Melly @thisismelly to create a list for this prompt, she went above and beyond researching the etymology of chocolate.
.
I love knowing word origins and thought you might like a few fun facts too, so here’s what Melly shared:
.
* Chocolate can be traced back to Aztecs who used it in sacred rituals.
.
* It was a bitter drink.
.
* They would ferment the outer bean shell to make alcohol.
.
I wonder if they added chilli?!?
.
OK, now it’s your turn. 
Think of the colour chocolate and write a word or phrase associated with the following:
.
1. Dusty Earth 
2. Burnished Leather
3. Sacred Moments
.
Chocolate is toxic for pooches but you’ll want to follow the gourmet trail back to Melly’s to meet her cavoodle Harley, he’s a treasure...and be sure to join her as she shares her current adventures overseas!

“The more you like yourself the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.” - Walt Disney
.
If I think of Disney and soft blue hues, my imagination immediately pops up Snow White.
.
If I think of my IG friends and soft blue hues, it instantly alights at Caroline’s door @pears39...pop on over and you’ll see why.
.
Caroline has chosen the following words to prompt your imagination to connect with baby blue, I’m intrigued to know how you’ll respond:
.
1. Nature
2. Building
3. Memory
.
Happy day my friend, I hope that it’s a goody!

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” - Albert Einstein
.
How’s this quote for a truth bomb?
.
Nature is my greatest teacher and although I’ve not been the best student, Her lessons have been exceptional.
.
My guest co-host today is Nikki @nyaguchi who regularly teaches me the botanical names of the flora we encounter on our local walks.
.
She possesses a passion for Australian natives and was an ‘automatic’ fit for today’s natural palette.
.
I can’t wait to read your links to Nikki’s prompts for natural:

1. Perfume
2. Food
3. Experience
.

As a bonus today, I’d love for you to tag me in your favourite nature post so that I can revel in your natural inspirations.
.
Happy day!

“There are no lines in nature, only areas of colour, one against another.” - Edouard Manet
.
I’m a greedy guts!
.
Today’s colour prompt is ‘favourite’ but I couldn’t choose just one so have gone with ‘ocean inspired’!
.
My most clever and super talented friend Hazel @hidden_egg has been more discerning, and can I say disciplined, and has nominated turquoise for her fave colour.
.
You can see why we’re friends.
.
Hazel has also chosen some cracking word prompts for you to play with linked to your favourite colour.
.
So today you will need to share your favourite colour AND how the following three words relate to it.
.
1. A place of tranquility 
2. A tiny treasure
3. Something totally random
.
I for one, can’t wait to read what you’ve got to share!
.
Pop on over and give Hazel a cheery hello, if you haven’t seen it already I know you’ll love her colour-filled space!

“Black is always elegant. It is the most complete colour in the whole world, made of all the colours in the palette.” – Ricardo Tisci
.
There was a time (not so long ago) when my wardrobe was predominantly black.
.
My car is black - when it’s not covered in dust!
.
Many of my pets have been black.
.
Black is the colour I prefer to have associated with my bank balance.
.
Today you are challenged by my friend Deb @moerks to connect the following words to black.
If yesterday’s responses are anything to go by, it will make for interesting reading.
.
So here we go:
1. Dark
2. Mysterious

“Black is always elegant. It is the most complete colour in the whole world, made of all the colours in the palette.” – Ricardo Tisci . There was a time (not so long ago) when my wardrobe was predominantly black. . My car is black - when it’s not covered in dust! . Many of my pets have been black. . Black is the colour I prefer to have associated with my bank balance. . Today you are challenged by my friend Deb @moerks to connect the following words to black. If yesterday’s responses are anything to go by, it will make for interesting reading. . So here we go: 1. Dark 2. Mysterious 3. Swarthy .

“Some things are just simple and I believe when you know, you know.” - Barry White.
.
....and so we come to my favourite colour.
.
What’s that you say? White isn’t a colour?
.
Well it definitely is for me and I simply adore it.
.
What I also adore are your creative responses to our ‘Quotes & Colours’ game.
.
Our host today is Audrey from @oldnewvintageandblue. She’s a sparkling creative with a canny wit and I know you’ll come up with some great connections for white linked to her three words:
.
1. Nature
2. Childhood 
3. Interiors
.
For a twist today, if you’d like to pop a link in your answer to someone who uses lots of white in their home, please do as I’d love to visit.
.
PS: Like me, Audrey has recently been taking an extended ‘posting sabbatical’ but if you knock on her door I’m sure you’ll enjoy spending time in her company.

“When you are old and grey and full of sleep, and nodding by the fire, take down this book and slowly read and dream of the soft look your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep.” - Yeats
.
Oh grey, you are so versatile...and as beautifully evocative as this poem by Yeats may be, you’re so much more than a signifier of increasing age.
.
I came late to the grey game - the colour not the hairs, believe me there have been plenty of those for years!
.
I really adore it now and judging by the number of clever and creative friends who use it in their homes, craft and clothing, I’m not alone.
.
One such friend is Tina who weaves (or should I say knits) her magic at @theforeverfarmhouse where you’ll find all sorts of grey deliciousness.
.
Tina is one of the most inspiring people I’ve come to know and admire over the years, and I highly recommend that you pop on over for a visit once you’ve responded to her prompts linked to grey:
.
1.Mood
2.Strength
3.Mindset
.
A big hug and thank you for playing! xx

“Appreciation is a wonderful thing - it makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.” - Voltaire
.
Can you believe it?
We’re into our second week of playing ‘Quotes & Colours’! If you’ve joined in, thank you, it’s been terrific reading your responses.
.
Today’s colour is one of my faves. If you ever get to visit my home, you’ll see my love of ocean colours proliferates and aqua is definitely included (although usually in muted tones).
.
I’ve asked the gorgeous Nic @nic_allingham to put together today’s list and she’s taken inspiration from her current overseas holiday.
.
So tell me, what comes to mind when you think of aqua when coupled with these three words:
.
1. Adventure 
2. Connection
3. Discovery
.
After reading this list, I saw lots of maps in my minds eye, but know you’ll blow me away with your divergent answers!
.
Happy day Lovely and be sure to visit Nic, especially if (like me) you love a pink and green combo. xx

Happy day Lovely!

How delicious is orange in her many hues?
.
I immediately think of Arnott’s orange cream biscuits from my childhood, Grandma’s marmalade and Cointreau...I’d probably recommend that they wouldn’t be taken together, although I’ll admit that could be interesting!
.
Far more interesting though, will be your creative responses to orange using the prompts that the wonderful Jen @jenpurlteach has put together for us:
.
1. Book
2. Energy
3. Celebration
.
Ooh, this will be fun!
.
Share some love with Jen, I know she’ll be tickled if you popped by. xx

“Gratitude is Heaven itself.” - William Blake
.
Purple - it can be a polarizer.
If I use it at all, I tend to gravitate towards either tones that have a blue tinge (the Jacaranda trees  lining our driveway), are dark and inky or have a smoky hue.
.
For today’s game of ‘Quotes & Colours’, my fantastically creative friend Ally @allyt_hobart has curated the following list to spark your imagination with words linked to purple:
.
1. Independence means
2. Inspiring nobility
3. Pride in
.
I’m really keen to read your responses and purple preferences.
.
PS: Once you’ve written your note, please take a minute to pop over and visit Ally, you’ll love her space and I know she’ll enjoy a cheery visit from you. xx

“We are so often caught up in our destination that we forget to appreciate the journey, especially the goodness of the people we meet on the way.” - Anonymous .
It’s been raining here for a number of days and I deeply appreciate it.
.
It would be fabulous if this precious gift could make its way over the mountains to those who are desperately in need of it - our farmers, their families and the communities they live in.
.
My family have a strong agricultural lineage and I know the deep value and power of water.
.
Now, living on the coastline, I’m fortunate to be able to enjoy all kinds of water; salty, river, free-falling, clean...and I regularly say a heartfelt ‘Thank You!’, especially when my water tank is full.
.
Today our game is inspired by the many hues of blue....water and gratitude.
.
Our prompts are supplied by the lovely Melisa @coffeepaperyarn who is currently on a wonderful adventure (hence today’s quote) - pop on over and say hello. .
Now, let’s play.
Think about how the words below relate to the image (colours) above:
.
1. Spiritual 
2. Emotional
3. Physical
.
Happy day!

“You can’t move mountains by whispering at them.” - Pink
.
Here’s a polarizing colour, I present Miss Pink.
.
I used to be on team ‘loathe it’ and but in recent years I find pink creeping gently into my world and have to admit that, in the right shade and amount, I do love it.
.
I think that this quote is quite something too and given the sassy nature of this artist, it’s a great motto for all of us when we need a proverbial ‘kick in the pants’.
.
Today’s game - look at the image and share how it relates to the following three words:
1. Painting
2. Fairytale 
3. Beverage
.
Thank you beautiful Jules @juliechilver for providing our word prompts, even though I know you’re not a fan of pink, I loved your responses yesterday and you’ve really given us something to think about now.
.
Happy day, I can’t wait to read everyone’s responses.

“How far that little candle throws his beams. So shines a good deed in a weary world” - William Shakespeare
.
Happy day! 
It’s about time I started a new theme, so...
.
For the next month, I thought it might be nice to share some of my favourite quotes mixed in with some colour play.
.
I’m going to attempt a post each day and I’ll pop a quick game in too.
.
If you’re keen to play along, simply answer the three questions that I’ll add onto the end of each post.
So let’s begin...
.
The colour in today’s image makes me think of:
1. Animal
2. Food
3. Person
.
I hope that you enjoy a fantastic weekend, I’m off to a wedding this afternoon!

That's it - finito! Another month of creative play is complete and I'll admit that it's been my favourite so far.

As you can see, my poor old watercolour palette is looking a little worse for wear but I'm more than pleased with this $5 purchase - value for money I'd say!

Thank you to everyone who played along, bringing each little character to life with your wonderful witty words.

It was a genuine challenge choosing just one caption ending every morning and I'm truly grateful to my guest 'judges' who helped out along the way - thank you!

It may have seemed odd that I didn't respond to your comments but I didn't want to influence the writing.

Know that I read and appreciate each one and as far as I'm concerned, you're all THE BEST bunch of creative thinkers.

I'm so grateful for the sparkle that you add to this space - you rock!

Everyone who was nominated as the 'Clever Captioner' for the images will have their named popped into a draw and I'll announce the recipient of my little fun package on Monday.

Before we say adieu to these tiny critters, you might like to have a final caption play and nominate your favourite feathered, furred or finned friend from this month.

Everyone who was nominated as the 'Clever Captioner' for the images will have their named popped into a draw and I'll announce the recipient of my little fun package on Monday. Before we say adieu to these tiny critters, you might like to have a final caption play and nominate your favourite feathered, furred or finned friend from this month. #iboughit  #watercolourpalette  #mybeautifulfriend  #fmsphotoaday  #littlemomentsapp  #nothingisordinary  #flashesofdelight  #mybeautifulmess  #thatsdarling  #whywhiteworks  #closethecaption  #originalwatercolour  #calledtobecreative  #creativelifehappylife  #creativityfound  #illustrationdaily  #colorpalette  #watercolor

Something a bit different for today's image.
Let's just say that I fell in love with this home (and the dog) in last month's 'Adore' magazine and couldn't resist including it in the gallery.

I hope that you can see our little friend sitting on the chair that I've painted for you?

Looking into the living room, Sullivan was surprised.

Our last couple of painted friends are coming to you over the coming days.

As July makes way for a new theme at the end of the week, I hope that you enjoy playing with these final captions.

I couldn't resist popping a little bee into the mix, let me introduce our busy friend Ms B:

Florence was always being told that she had her head in the clouds, but she ignored it all because.

Ever since I was little I've been a snuggler. 
For me, heartfelt hugs will bring light and joy to any moment.

I hope you like this little Polar hug, the first purely B&W image that I've created.

I'm looking forward to reading the many ways you will complete today's sentence.

Hooray for all the fab captions for our 'main man' Eugene yesterday.
It gives me so much pleasure watching you inject personality into each of these characters - you're the best!

A little housekeeping announcement before we begin today.

I've decided to change things up a bit and from now on I'll be sharing the 'Clever Captioner' for each character in the comments section of their post.

I feel that in sharing it in the current day's post the focus is being taken from the new character and your creative process.

If you're keen to find out whose entry was chosen, pop back to the previous post and look for the 🐝 CONGRATULATIONS 🐝 banner.

OK, enough of this boring palaver, let's find out who we're playing with today:

Tired of the finger pointing, sideways glances and not-so-subtle whispering, Camilla decided.

Let me introduce you to Eugene.
The word on the street is that he plays a fly banjo riff, is the next big thing in Rorschach, makes a smooth espresso and...well, let's just say he's foxy.

Have fun with today's prompt:

Sitting on the corner of Awesome and Bomdiggity Lanes, Eugene.

Thank you to my gorgeous guest adjudicator, we enjoyed reading your fab notes about Miss Violet.

There were so many goodies, but it's  @laughinthesun whose name goes into the draw for her very clever caption - yay!

Happy day, I hope it's a little bit foxy.

We're back from our minibreak and have already had our first set of overnight guests with another arriving today - phewee!

Thank you for bringing life to my little beetle friend Ludwig yesterday.
My lovely guest selector and I agreed that @foryourvintagelife had the winning caption - three cheers Jeanette!

I'm going to be busy-busy but hope to pop in to read your endings for today's prompt, which is:

She knew that she shouldn't, and yet Violet.

You'd think it would be getting easier to select a Clever Captioner each day, but it's getting harder and I've really appreciated the input of each person who's agreed to help with this task.
A big thank you to my guest adjudicator yesterday, I really appreciate your assistance.

Thank you also to everyone who left a note about our little narwhal friend Elizabeth.

Right from the start, Audrey @oldnewvintageandblue set the bar high (sorry, j couldn't resist this pun) and a stream of excellent captions followed.

In the end, the image of Elizabeth carving out time for herself resonated strongly, and we're giving the 'Clever Captioner' gong to @jenpurlteach - hooray Jenny!

We've had feathers, fur and fins in this series but today we go feisty with a little bug called Ludwig!
Here is your sentence starter:

After months of trying, Ludwig.

Every day for this past week I've received a parcel of fresh delights as I read your fantastic notes. 
You really are the most clever captioners and yesterday's selection made it tough to choose just one - the fact that I didn't have the assistance of a guest adjudicator made it doubly so.

Congratulations go to @moerks.
With just s couple of well crafted words you managed to not only give Alan a personality but a cause - fantastic.

Onto today's prompt.

I hope you like my little 'unicorn of the sea', my narwhal.

When I see images of these unique creatures they make me feel so happy that I couldn't help but share one with you.

So here's your caption segment. 
Elizabeth felt completely enlivened without.

Happy 'Fourth Of July' to all my friends in the USA - if you didn't see it, yesterday's post was a little bit of a red-white-and-blue celebration

A big cheer goes out to @joannafrances57 who was chosen by my lovely co-adjudicator and I for writing the most interesting anecdote for our little bulldog friend - very Thelma & Louise-esque.

In case you're wondering, today's image is of an Australian native animal, the wombat. 
These 'bricks on legs' are renowned for being excellent snoozers, having a roly-poly gait, enjoying a good tummy rub but being a tad reclusive.

If you've never seen one before, there are some cute videos in the wombat hashtag.

I'm intrigued to read your endings to:

Never before had Alan experienced such.

Your sentences were off the scale yesterday, so it was fortunate that I had another wonderful helper to narrow it down to just one.

Are you enjoying the new theme and game? I hope so, because it's been so much fun reading your clever captioning.

It's also been particularly wonderful seeing the notes that you're writing to each other - you rock!

It became clear very quickly that I was going to need help in selecting just one Clever Captioner, so I was thrilled when an anonymous assistant agreed to lend a hand - phew and yay!
I'm thinking that I'll probably share this role around, so be ready for a tap on the shoulder.

Now for the fun part.

Hilary got up to some crazy antics yesterday, she's quite the character! 
As I was reading, I was giggling, nodding, smiling and mostly being entertained - thank you {xx}. In the end we couldn't go past the story of how Fabergé eggs came to be. Congratulations go to @afsoneh -- on your terrific caption.

Happy day, your sentence starter is.

In a vain attempt to keep up with the Joneses, Michael found himself.

PS: Captain Mac and I are handing our nest over to guests this weekend whilst we have a minibreak. Internet connection will be limited so I may not be able to reply to your notes individually - but rest assured that I will definitely be enjoying them.

PPS: The first couple of hashtags may help get your creative juices flowing today.

After rereading them several times over, my pick is the one written by @lillidaisy - nice work Lovely, your name has gone into the barrel.

Here's today's caption:

Are you ready to play?
I'm sure you are because you blew me away with your amazing notes last month.

July means it's a new theme and I hope we're going to have lots of fun.

Each day I'll be sharing a little image that I've created and I'll include a sentence starter for a game I'm calling "Close The Caption". A couple of words each day is all it will take for you to join in.
You can add the first thing that pops into your mind....or go away and think about it before you come back with your response....or you can do both!

There's no limits, add as many endings as you like!

To thank you for participating, I'm going to choose the funniest, most thought provoking or poignant response each day and if it's yours, your name will go into a very snazzy hat. At the end of the month, I'll draw out one name and that person will receive a parcel of cool things.

Each day's fun will finish once I post the next prompt and I'll also share my fave sentence from the day before.

Anyhoo, enough palarver, let's begin!
Here's the first sentence starter to go with my little Puffin friend. "Returning home, Jeffrey realised too late......". #fmsphotoaday #home #puffin  #littlemomentsapp  #nothingisordinary #flashesofdelight #mybeautifulmess #thatsdarling #whywhiteworks #ABMlifeiscolorful #closethecaption #originalwatercolour
