Thank you for the informative blog post. I too would be okay with the colors of mourning.:)

No creepies…Just don’t know about that whole keeping the body at home in this time period. Not too excited about the smell. LOL I wouldn’t mind the all black, I do that for stretches anyway. =D I think I would be in half mourning constantly. Black, grey, plum, deep lavender…sounds a bit like my wardrobe.

Hope you’re doing well my friend!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
