Playing with words. I love some of these. They are even better if you read them out loud. Go on. I know you want to!
Fancy having your kitchen walls painted in pumblechook? Guess what colour it would turn out to be?
Brown. Seems like no-one wants to mention it.
Thanks to a bunch of paint colour charts, playing with words was definitely on the cards for me last week as Festival of brown culminated in a performance with comedy, thoughts, dance, music, readings.
There's a lovely sequence of images at the festival blog which you can browse here.
