Hurry, hurry, Hurry!

For some reason I was almost, almost but not quite idle sometimes last winter but this year I seem to be racing from one project to the next. At this rate I won't find time to grow elderly and snooze in a rocking chair!
My mind is racing so fast I won't spend time writing off a ponderous essay so will dash off a few pictures. (It's more fun that ways, not?) Pretend that's me shooting off this blog

Slappin' an Slickin"

Whether you're inclined to get dizzy or not, I don't think too many of you would care to spend too much time painting ceilings. If you read yesterday's post you will have 'seen' me industriously painting our secondary bathroom a cheerful yellow. Well, you know how it goes; one thing leads to another and it didn't take long to discover that the ceiling needed a touch up also. (And yes, I am typing this with dabs of paint on my fingers.) My head doesn't care to be up-tilted all that long so I developed an excuse to go a-blogging. Hey, all you people that are are impassively sitting in buses, trains, and what-not's need something to read, something to think about for a few minutes so here you go! And here I go back to slapping (??!!) on paint and slicking up the bathroom. My, but it's beginning to look bright and new in there!
Have a good day, folks!
That's about the color of my hair but I sure ain't quite that young lookin' ! Just add some laugh lines around the eyes and a pair o glasses and it will be a little more like it. lol

Springtime Indoors!


Would I freak you out or would you be charmed if you knew what I was doing today? I was painting the secondary bathroom yellow. Yes! Yellow!  I like it! It is so sunny and bright. Sure I'll tone it down---or brighten it even more--- with white trim, but hey, it won't blind you, and the door is closed most of the time :^)  .
I'm sprucing up more of the house than just what we call the 'far' bathroom, though. The entrance hall will be a softer tone of yellow, but still cheery when I'm done with it. I already did the living room, (more like a family room y'know), kitchen and main hall in complimentary shades of blue and I want to tie them all together in our open utility area with some color that's a blend of yellow and blue.  Aqua? Turquoise?  Anyway something pretty and complimentary. I'll keep the main bathroom a nice safe desert sand color so it will continue to match our main guestroom just across the hall. It's fun, cheerful and fun. No I'm not being redundant. I meant to say it that way.  I'll  try and get some pictures off or is it on line to give you an idea of my dreams...
Regardless of whether you approve or disapprove of my color combinations, you're still welcome to come visit our Bed and Breakfast for a nice relaxing country-style vacation this summer. Or sooner! Or later!
That's pretty much the right shade, but I didn't find any hallways that were as attractive as what I envision ours will be. (Prejudiced!)
I think this shade would look attractive in our utility but I don't care for, and will not use that orangey-brown color  for accents. Hope I didn't offend anyone!
Have fun with your own springtime projects, folks! I'd love to hear what you are doing with all that surplus early spring energy.
