Years ago (ok DECADES ago), there was a book that came out about what color type you were based on your skin tones. I have a strong Irish/German heritage, so I have very pale skin. My eyes are also very light blue, and I have dark brown hair with red highlights (more grey now – eeek). So, needless to say, when I go out in the summer sun I burn very easy.
That top-of-the-charts book told me that I was a “fall” skin tone type. This seemed correct to me as I love the colors of deep red, dark green, and gold in the clothes I wore back then. To some extent, I still lean toward those colors when I shop for clothing. However, I have just discovered that I may have a fall skin tone, but I have a winter heart.
When you look at this picture do you fee cold, harsh, and alone? I see warm and cozy. I picture a home filled with warmth and laughter.
How about this one? Are you only thinking about Christmas and the stark cold of winter? I think of crafting and making things to share with family, friends, and loved ones.
This is one of my favorite dreams. I would love to have a tiny little cabin in the middle of the woods. I prefer it be small enough to have a fireplace as the only mode of heat. I would need some lanterns for decent lighting. My goal there would be to find peace, quiet, and creativity. All I need would be:
- Several good crafting books.
- Tons of yarn.
- Some of my beading supplies.
- Hot cocoa, snuggly blankets on an overstuffed couch, and a warm fire.
Minor amenities like food, water, and a bathroom would also be nice. However, I do know how to create good drinking water from snow. I have used the woods for a bathroom before (when I was a lot younger, but I’m sure the concept is still the same). I also know a bit about hunting and foraging and if there is a stream or lake nearby – fishing is a must.
The next best thing to my favorite would be this:
A woods with a path that does not show a clear end. I see peace, quiet, and another story!
I would love to hear what season your heart is and why an I hope you feel the urge to share.
