Some days 14 Shades of Grey is an album, I listen to, by the band Staind. We've seen Staind in concert here and here.

""This is my life, it's not what it was before

All these feelings I've shared...

An' now that we're here, it's so far away
An' I feel like I can face the day"...So Far Away by Staind

Some days grey is the background, allowing color to be the star.

My art journal page about our trip to the
Japanese Garden in Florida, 2007

I asked a woman who worked at the Japanese Garden
if the leaves change color in the fall.

She said, "No. Some things flower
at different times of the year. At the end of October, it is
beautiful, cool weather here."

Some days you barely notice grey,
unless you look.


  1. I love grey right now. It looks so pretty with everything. And this is a beautiful post

  2. I am in love with that Olive + Alice oufit!!
    I love a soft gray, it goes with everything
    Such cute pics of those kiddos

  3. I love wearing grey, I agree that it is so calming!!
    Adore the "Some days grey is the background, allowing color to be the star." quote!
    I think my fave grey outfit of yours is number 4, the brown boots really make it all pop!

  4. I only played in the leaves once as a kid. Only because I saw it in a cartoon and it seemed fun.

  5. I agree, in some cases grey can be surprisingly "colourful" and really make an outfit shine. as always you have picked the coolest runway looks. I would take pretty much every single piece from those ensembles and put them all in my wardrobe :P oh and Florida sounds like a wonderful place to visit :)

  6. I really enjoyed this post.. and it kind of makes me feel sad for grey.. is it me being super sentimental lately?...or why do I feel a knot in my throat?... I feel as if grey was a person..a quiet one.. the kind of person that usually goes unnoticed but deep inside wants desperately to be noticed, to make friends, to be loved..grey would like to stand out from time to time but it is too shy to try... poor little grey.. I'm glad you dedicated this post to it.... btw, is it grey or gray?..I always get confused...
    Anyway..loving Alice and Olivia's take on grey with that outfit.. those boots are fab!
    ..thanks for the comments on my blog.. I appreciate them, you know it.. :) take care!

  7. today i feel grey like cold and cozy and want to lay in bed sort of grey!

  8. Thank you so much dear for all your kind comments! I appreciate it immensely :) I have so much grey in my closets, although I find I'm not particularly fond of the shade. It's super easy when matching with other colours though. Great post!

  10. Your nieces and nephew are lovely ! I just bought a fluffy chunky grey cardigan today !

  11. I loved the first skirt and the last picture's pair of boots! You know I say you always look great, but I truly feel this way! And especially because I think you are so wise. Yes, sometimes grey is a balance. And I loved what is written in your art journal. I will use the "answer" in my life. True, we need to see things... otherwise, everything seems to be so fast, that they just pass and we don't see... your post is amazing, and so are you! denisesplanet com
