Gentle Spectrums Feb 2014-2015 Wrap-up

Gentle Spectrums, hosted by Riedel Fascination, has two parts. Ran Feb 2014 to Feb 2015. I didn't do very well on the first part, despite having several likely candidates on my shelves. I completed all but one category in the second part.

Pencil Crayon Notepaper

Share any 10 books entitled with a colour.
You may repeat the colour spectrums;  even exact hues.

Funky lipstick or paint shades might be a stretch.
Well-established hues are at your leisure:  maroon, jade, emerald…

  1. I would say you finished. #7, "silly / outrageous" could be "The Blue Fox" or "The Golden Egg". I happened to see that you did this close-out post for me. Put it anywhere among Gentle Spectrums 2014 posts, the re-cap post, or recent 2014 summary with your prize points, which you may be doing as we speak. You linked many more plants and other categories than what's above. That's getting rewarded, Shonna. :) We'll see who wins are draw for the year! Carolyn.

  2. No worries Carolyn. I'll count everything for the 2015 challenge.
