Color

I've yet to meet any other people who are as into color as John and I. I mean...we really like colorful things. It's funny. Due to a potty accident from the toddler (thanks for the incentive Thatch) we tore out the carpet in our bathroom and painted. Now, mind you we don't live in our dream mud house yet, but we do like beauty, so we're trying to make the best with what we got. Good plan, eh? So we painted. John's idea of the color "lime" was the outer skin of the fruit where I was thinking more the inner light color. And we were gonna do the floor blue, I was thinking dark navy, he opted for bright, but it turned out great and we liked it. And because I can't just paint and leave it at that, I had to add a little pinache, flair, whatever you call it. So the plan was a squiggly from ceiling to floor to opposite wall to ceiling, so I mixed the two colors (outer skin lime and bright blue) and white and the result??? GROOVY! The wall squiggly turned out blue and the floor squiggly turned out green. So cool.

Hey, I was always teased about my love on colors in KY. Tom said I love ethnic colors, whatever that means. I love those bright ones, the squiggly! Glad you love your place! Nat

Nat, I don't know if I would call it love. If by my new place, you mean Texas, yeah, it's great (though we do miss being closer to everyone). Not diggin' the dryness and really torn on if this is where we'll stay. :/

Well, I think it's about time you posted something. You are home, are't you? I really need to read your blog, so c'mon, post, will I? I also didn't know you posted back to my comment. I saw it as I went to add another one. Hmm. you want to be closer, I wish I could tell you my place is for sale but when someone else approached about it a month or so ago hubby declined! You want a few acres to build on? Nat, who just found out you are on facebook! You mean you never invited me? I can't believe everybody has been doing this and I am out of the loop. I got a few invites but I was too busy blogging! Man, I was missing on some fun!
