Friday 5 - Five Shades of Teal

I stopped in over at Eclectic Spaghetti and saw that Tara had done this week's Friday 5.  So I decided , hey, why not? It is always fun to think about color and its role in the beautiful rainbow of your life. Or, like, it is cool to kill time, eh? 

1.How many teal-colored items of clothing do you have, and which is your favorite? I am fairly certain I don't have a single item of teal-colored clothing. I tend towards, black, grey, brown and an occasional bright primary in my wardrobe.  DR has a tee that I think would be teal. So I will call that my favorite :)

2.There aren’t many teal-colored foods, but what comes pretty close and how do you feel about it? The only thing that comes right to mind is some kinds of children's punch drinks that are uncomfortably close to teal. haha! It is an odd food color. But those sugary drinks are good in a pinch for a little sugar bump and/or hydration...even when oddly colored.

3.If yellow is the color of cowardice, green the color of envy, and blue the color of sadness, what’s teal the color of?  Teal is the color of cowvyness. Wait, that's not an emotion! Okay...teal is the color of summer dreams. Which is not quite an emotion...but close enough.

4.What’s the neatest teal-colored thing you’ve seen recently? The teal I've seen most recently is only in my mind as I write this post. It is the color of tropical waters. So neat :-D

5.If you had to paint one of the rooms in your house teal, which would it be?  It would have to be the bathroom. Teal would be a challenge as the main color in a room. I'd think of it more as an accent. But I guess the bathroom would make the most sense. I'd do a white, light yellow, or possibly light pink shower curtain and go on from there...

Hope you enjoyed my teal musings. Please feel free to comment about teal or anything else your little heart desires. And come back tomorrow to be PUZZLED by my Saturday Scavenger Shots.

Ha. I just answered these at Eclectic Spaghetti!

I also do not have any teal clothing.
I think your idea of summer dreams fits teal very well... and I'm anxious to see that ocean in person some day.

Teal in the bathroom sounds good, it is a calming colour.

Silly: Yay! And I want to see that ocean in person too.

FW: Yes, I think it could be nice. And anything calming in any room sounds great.

I love the thought of teal adding up to summer dreams! It's very accurate.

Oh, and I love the photo of that tropical beach. I'd love to be there right now.

Tara: I love how the Friday 5 sort of forces creativity :)
I would LOVE to be on a tropical beach right now...
