I can safely say this favorite childhood book was a trigger for my love of colour. As a little girl I would never have imagined what a huge part colour has played in my life.I have never been what you would call obsessive compulsive. But when it comes to my huge collection of buttons,beads and trinkets my innate categorizing gene becomes active and I have to sort! Unfortunately this trait doesn't spill over into everyday life. My world is a mix of messy paperwork, neglected housework, and an untidy house...but at least the buttons are organised.
