a nice, lovely shade of...
But here is the thing-
I've been doing some decorative soul searching
I checked books out of the library
I poured through magazines
I stalked your blogs
It finally dawned on me.
I LOVE color.
I am easily seduced by it
and this is a big one---
I get bored easily.
I like to change things...
So, when I'm seduced by a color and paint it on a wall...
I get stuck.
I will love it
then, when I get bored and want to change things around...
It won't flow with my wall color.
I was so proud of myself for coming to this conclusion
my mom spelled it out for me...
As I was getting ready to tell HER...
SHE told me
"Amy, you should paint your walls a light neutral. You have all your pretty things that you like to put out and change all the time."
Of course Mother knows best...
Why didn't you tell me this before?
(how about 4 wall colors ago)
Wonder when she's going to tell me what I should be when I grow up?
So, the last time I painted,
I went with a light blue...
loved the whole blue/brown look...
Today, I'm feeling RED
Perhaps in honor of Valentines Day.
Give me a month, and I'll be bored again...
But for now-
I'm going with this---
Do you see Hub's Vintage golf clubs?
Homemade apothecary jar with buttons.
The whole vignette.
Forgive the magnetic letters.
Monkey is learning how to spell and when he discovered
this metal box was magnetic, he took it over!
Oh look, I made something!
The blue was lovely for the first two months...
Same spot- I brought out my crusty window.
I forgot how much I love this window!
My little red and white chippy chair from when I was younger.
And the picture hanging is Monkey
when he was about 5 weeks old.
So... there it is.
My new, vanilla walls with red sprinkles.
This girl couldn't be happier!
