It made me think that although I'm not enjoying the general greyness in the weather, I do like grey as a colour. I often wear it, and I like having a little grey around the house. It offsets white beautifully, and reminds me of granite and driftwood and scantle slate roofs - things that I think of as being inherently cornish.
Here are a few grey things to be found round the house at the moment:
Some of my Persephone books
These are my favourite pens for everyday writing. Nothing else comes up to scratch, apart from my fountain pen.
An old galvanised tub. I've rubbed a very thin layer of warmed natural wax polish over the surface, and buffed it to a soft sheen.
Grey wool. This is leftover from the hat, but I do have some more!
And some treasured pebbles, with their beautiful chalky-grey colours. I always have some pebbles somewhere.
How about you - do you like shades of grey, or do you like more colour?
