Hi there. Last night we painted the living room. The first color was so wrong. It was gray, not tanish/light brown. It didn't go with our couch at all. Hubby kindly went back to the store for choice #2. It is much better.
It is about the color of my morning coffee, well actually make that my cream, sugar, and little spot of coffee. I'm liking this shade so far. Hey, you're reading the book titles aren't you? Go on. Anyway, this shade will be nice for the fall and winter. Warm and cozy. I like how white things show up against colored walls. I also heart all of our white trim/woodwork/mouldings throughout our house, so leaving the other 3 walls in Keely's room white pains me. She has two windows and two doors that are all being lost in the sea of whiteness now.sigh. I moved some stuff around in there today.
I think I'm going to move the nursery rocker out of there. Boy did I log many hours in that thing. oy. Also, going to
paint that green mirror white. Nah, going to replace it. It's too small there. And then figure out how to do some birds on the walls. I planned on white birds on the blue walls, but now I think blue birds on the sad white walls will be better. I do really like this happy color. I stop and look at it everytime I walk by. I have more plans for that room…eventually.
And you'd think with all this painting/house chaos I wouldn't have gone thrifting. You'd think wrong. I never buy new clothes, haven't been to a proper mall/store for years and years, so it's always good when I find some decent stuff that fits me well at the thrift store. Check out these recent skirt finds:
$2. each. That's good stuff. They all are about knee length and have a little flare to them. I also never even look at shoes but these caught my eye.
Red! With tall heels too. They are even a name brand-Tommy H. Sassy! or maybe it just looks like I'll be working the street corner tonight. hmmm. They were only $3. I thought they'd be cheery looking on my feet with some gray/black tights in the winter time. We'll see if I'll be bold enough to ever wear them in public. Now, that the painting is done I've got a house to get back in order. So, I'm off to do that now.
