my favorite has always been BLUE! probably because my favorite activity in the world (besides reading your blog haha) is walking on the beach and just staring out at the ocean. My favorite vegetable is definitely broccoli! I could eat it everyday steamed, raw, or baked :)

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBeth @ DiningAndDishing

Congrats Ashley! Those pictures look amazing!

My favorite color is pink or grey. Favorite veggie would have to be brocolli.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

Fav Color is green-sage or olive green
Fav Veggie is lima beans with mushrooms a close second

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSusanJ

Ok my favorite color is green, favorite vegetable?? Oh man that's a toughy! It's a cross between broccoli and tomatoes, those are two things I just can't pass by. I'd probably grab the tomato if the broccoli is plain steamed but any other way I'd be stuck between the two!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChristina

Your store looks great. I will show my husband tonight. I want to change some things in the kitchen and dining room. My favorite color is cranberry red. I love that deep color. Hmmm...the veg is tougher to decide. It all depends on how it is prepared. Raw carrots are yummy. Love a giant bowl of greens. A plate piled high with tender crisp stir fried veggies makes me happy too.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnneWF

Favorite color would have to be red and vegetable brussel sprouts! Congrats on the shop opening. Your pictures are amazing.

Favorite color is turquoise. Favorite vegetable is broccoli :) Mmmmm!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterErin P.

Favorite color is green, although I am also partial to anything bright purple/fuschia (especially in terms of clothing.)

Favorite veggie is green beans, but I also love brussel sprouts. And pretty much anything that tastes like crunchy water (cucumbers, celery....iceberg lettuce...)

Your pictures are beautiful!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCaitlin N.

Hmmm I think my favorite color recently is green. I used to love red, though. My favorite vegetable is easily brussels sprouts, I guess because I dont' have them too often. THey just always taste delicious!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnanda

My favorite color is red, and my favorite vegetable has always been broccoli. Congrats on the shop!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKim M.

Favorite color: Blue or Lavender

Favorite Vegetable: So hard to choose! Spinach and arugula (and beets and brussel sprouts and bok choy...)

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCellabella

Congratulations -- this is exciting! The apples are so cute & I love the vibrancy & illumination of the jars.
Favorite color is definitely a very particular bright, vivid green -- like the color of leaves in spring when the sun hits them just right -- pretty close to the green in this backdrop: case you were dying to know JUST what I was talking about. ;)
Favorite vegetable? I can't name just one, it's totally relative on my mood & what my body wants: sweet potatoes are definitely a top 5 though. ;)
Good luck! I'm heading over to your shop!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAllie

The prints are beautiful! Best of luck with your store!

Favorite color is definitely green, but favorite vegetable, *ugh!*, too hard to pick one!! I guess it changes all the time, but probably brussels sprouts or kale right now.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTracy

I love the prints; they're gorgeous! My fave color is purple (I think I wear something purple, even if it's just earrings every single day) and my favorite veg is probably beets. I basically love all veggies, but I think I get most excited when beets are on the menu. Also, I am surprised at how many people chose orange as their favorite color. It makes me think of Legally Blonde when she says "whoever said orange was the new pink is seriously deranged" LOL.I like orange though, just to be clear :)

Congrats!!! I love your photos!
