Bathing in color!

Last night I felt the overwhelming desire to bathe in color.
Bright colors. Pantsuit colors. Bouncy Castle Colors.
I wanted to feast my eyes on the brightest colors imaginable....

Luckily, I have some really colorful friends who were able to show up at 6 O' clock for a party that started at 6 O'clock.
Luckily, I have a friend named Bingo who has a crazy-colorful house for us to play in!

Here are a few of the zillions of colorful photos I took!

  Julia, Roxanne and Charlene, doing "Valley of the Dolls".

          Kate adds more sparkle!

        Marnie, Julia and Roxanne doing "Cats".

          Bingo's playhouse.

       Bri and Kelly at the Silverware Garden.

             Mark Nilsen bathes in color.

    He has an eye for these kinds of things.

      Of-course Bingo has really luscious umbrellas!

     Kate with a lovely green umbrella.

      Kelly models her vintage Lilly Pulitzer Pantsuit on the stairs.

        Ooh, let's feast our eyes on that Lilly, shall we?
        Ah, bathing in color!

           Kelly in pink.

 Our fabulous hostess, Bingo!
 Bingo just finished her book, and this is wonderful news. Congratulations, Bingo!

Thank you Bingo, for sharing your color with us!
Next up is the Pantsuit Bouncy Castle party, and you are all invited!
