Yep, I'm Color Challenged!!

It's the day before the new counter tops arrive - and I've spent the day priming, painting and RE-painting the kitchen walls.

As much as I love color, after I had carefully selected a caramel color to contrast the counter tops, and painstakingly applied, when it dried - it just didn't work!   Has anyone else done this?   It just dried darker, much darker in fact, that the sample.  And what I envisioned as being cozy warm turned out to be NOT SO COZY WARM! 

So perhaps after the counter tops are installed, I'll give it another whirl.  For now, it's just simple, clean and calm.

But the bright side is that a fresh coat of paint always makes things brighter.

Happy Monday everyone!

Dreaming of Spring...

The sun has been shining the last several days, the snow is melting and I find myself searching for signs of spring.   You know, a bud on the tree, a flower peeking through the snow, etc.  
A few weeks early, but the sunshine has really been a welcome sight for most of us. 

Life continues to happen around here - just remembering to breath and enjoy the good days!  Thanks to those who have checked is appreciated more than you will ever realize.

Best wishes for a wonderful weekend for all of you!
