this week at Happily Retired Gal.


I found this quiz at Diamonds in the Sky ... quite a while ago. It's been in my drafts folder a long time so today seems a good time to share, just for fun. I hope you'll share your results either here in comments or on your own blog and leave a link ;--)

You need more Purple in Your Life

Purple will make you feel ambitious, independent, and creative.

And with a little purple, you will project an aura of individuality.

If you want more extravagance, you've got to get a little purple in your life!

For extra punch: Combine purple with green or orange

The downside of purple: It can evoke sad feelings

The consequences of more purple in your life:

You will feel an increase in your artistic abilities

You will find balance in the most chaotic parts of your life

You will feel calm and will be hard to disturb

What Color Do You Need?

You Need Some Red in Your Life

Red will make you feel energetic, passionate, and determined.

And with a little red, you will project an aura of warmth.

If you want to feel intensely, you've got to get some red in your life!

For extra punch: Combine red with orange or pink

The downside of red: Red can provoke anger or rage. Watch out!

The consequences of more red in your life:

You will feel more enthusiasm for life.

You will have the confidence to go after what you want.

You will have a lot more physical energy.

That was a fun one too. Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

We have pansies in our yard, but the cold of the past few weeks have really done a number on them. Hopefully they will come back and we'll have blooms almost as pretty as yours!

Lovely to see the pansies. Nothing but snow in my yard so far.

I realize I'm very late commenting here. But those pansies are exquisite. Red is my color, I seem to need the vibrancy of it. Actually I'm looking for your TT for this week, will keep hunting. :)

I LOVE purple..though I dont have enough of it yet. In Feng shui context, purple is supposed to be a great colour to have for 2009 :D

stan said...

tt is a lot of royal purple there. :)

Gattina said...

I could need some fresh flowers !
BTW I need more yellow in my life, lol !

Michelle said...

I love purple. It's my favorite color. My poor little one is always dressed in purple. You'd think it was her favorite color. LOL! I'm going to stop by and take the color test. Looks fun. When you get a chance I have something for you over at my place. Happy Friday!

Karen said...

Apparently, I need some orange in my life...which is strange, because all I have to do is step into my kitchen! LOL!

I've been so loving the flower photos that you've been posting, that I bought a couple bunches of daffodils yesterday at Trader Joe's. Oh how they are perking up the house! I forget how easy that is (and cheap--$3 for two bunches)!

Tammy said...

Those were my fathers favorites! Whenever I see them they remind me of him. Thank you! :o)

Joyce said...

Hello, Virginia,

I especially enjoy the middle left flowers, the deep bluish/purple blooms.

Evidently, I need more yellow in my life. :P

Kay said...

Purple is my favorite color and I love pansies too. Great photos.

yertle said...

Just posted my results on my blog. It turns out that I need some green.
