So am I the only person who expected something premenstrual there? No?

I love this idea, and thanks so much for posting it.

I'm pretty colorblind, so with that in mind... do these really match? Perhaps it's just my eyes/brain playing tricks on me, but this one seems a lot lighter than the background color behind it and this seems a lot darker than the background. Am I wrong?

I hear Marcel the Shell's voice reading all of these.

I think it's interesting to see the difference between things that are manufactured, and thus stand a good chance of actually having a direct Pantone match, and things that are found in nature, and which at best you can sort of match parts of them because they're not precisely one solid color.

It's also interesting how much variation light and shadow adds even to things that are relatively monotone.

Overall, I can say I was interested in this!

There is something very soothing about these. So tiny. So neat. I like!

You're not wrong, Walter... (Just kidding!)

Like jacquilynne said, the natural objects display an array of colors that dance around the pantone color. Some small portions might match closely, or if you kind of average the color out in your head it seems to work.

Every one I've seen so far clicks and works immediately for me; I "see" the match even though clearly large parts of some of the objects aren't a direct fit.

Ahhhhhhhhhh.

Totally lovely. And one of the funnest things about authoring this blog (I imagine) is that all your friends and admirers give you tiny interesting things to Pantone-match.

Or maybe it's actually somewhat irritating. But as an optimist, I'm going to go with "fun."

And oh, wow, Magnolia seeds! I had no idea they look like this, and I used to live in a place with magnolias.

How can anyone find this soothing when the pencil match was SO SO WRONG?

The two thin yellow stripes on the metal bit are wrong, but the paint on the wood is just about right.
