Busy but FUN week...





It has been a very busy week, not only tuesday.....but the entire week.. Had a friend come stay with us for couple days and we went antiquing an I bought couple of silver items for my dresser.. a beautiful silver box lined with velvet..to keep my jewlery and a silver pen..2 pictures of bunnies.. ( I collect bunnies) which I am going to paint the frames Ithink.. what color I don't know.. I finished the lap blanket I crochet for a baby shower.. love this new yarn I never used before called "baby cloud" and I redid the sofa in my living room with new colors.. soft blues and whites..I am really happy with how it turned out.. very light and breezy....I am thinking again of changing the color on the walls of my living room again.... I get this urge sometimes for change..and once I do... well...there is usually no way to make me stop...alreadyI have been collecting tons of paint chips....trying to get inspired... was thinking of a very soft butter yellow........hummmmmm......

Morning Marlene! Love how your baby blanket turned out! I've used that yarn its great, easy on your hands. Like that silver box too. Oh my, you sound just like me! I can't get an idea out of my head until I try it, especially paint! Problem is now I have so many different coats on my walls the rooms are getting smaller! I'm afraid the next coat might cause the walls to start peeling?! Butter yellow will be very pretty with your blues/whites and very cottage like! Glad you had a good weekend with your friend. Have a good day - Jeannette

Hi again! Glad you could stop by. To answer about walls it's wallpaper from Lowes! I am sick of it but it is paper you tear into rectangles and put up in a random fashion. The end result looks like stone (in person). It took me a week to do it, easy but time consuming. My husband wants me to keep it up but I can feel that "idea in my head" thing coming on and may just not be able to stop myself tearing it off!!!lol I knew you and I had something in common from the start! Talk soon, Jeannette

Hi Marlene,

Well what are the ODDS that we would have that same color in our home??? I mean, it's not like it is the infamous Tobacco Road from Nester's blog :) How cool is that? (For anyone reading this, the color we share in common is Chamois by Ralph Lauren!)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend:)
