The war outside our door keeps raging on… 52 Weeks of Color Challenge Round 2, Week 10: Avocado

Wow week 10 already? I can’t believe it! Anyway, just like last week, I’ve been so excited for this color. I had to write this post early because I couldn’t wait any longer!! A couple of weeks ago I was curious to see if I could find something with a Mockingjay on it. What is a Mockingjay, you ask? It’s a hybrid bird from the book series The Hunger Games. If you haven’t read the books, you should. They are AMAZING!!! Anyway, I was excited beyond words when I found this Mockingjay necklace, so I decided to build my outfit around it and ventured out of my skybox to find a forest so I could channel my inner Katniss.

“I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, “I’ll never let you go”
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said, “Don’t leave me here alone”
But all that’s dead and gone and passed tonight”

“Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You’ll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I’ll be safe and sound”

“Don’t you dare look out your window darling
Everything’s on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold onto this lullaby
Even when the music’s gone… gone…”

And of course I had to take a closeup pic of my necklace. I am never taking this off so expect to see it in my upcoming blog posts. 😛
