I want more of it too. I don't think I'm the neutral colour scheme girl I thought I was after all. Take a look at No.1's ensuite, (yes jolly lucky girl who doesn't appreciate what she has at all and won't even keep it clean and tidy!) isn't it pretty in aqua and white?
I received these marvelous fabric samples I ordered in the mail this morning from a lovely shop called The Cotton Store. After school today she will decide which are the most suitable colours. I will make the roman blind myself and save a few hundred dollars in the process. We were quoted $500 to have one made! It will cost no more than $100 for me to make it. Aren't they just lovely?
As you can see we have colour all around our house at present. Loving the greens right now.
Now here's a puzzler... why don't you see triplet carrots for sale? We can't be the only people to have seceeded in growing such a magnificent feast from one plant. Oh and they taste like the garden, really fresh and juicy. The girls went out to the garden this morning and picked one each for their lunchboxes. What a treat!
On the other hand, this... I don't find very amusing at all. What on earth??? Surely the tree is confused? Please don't let summer be finishing yet!
Speaking of colour. I've changed my mind about the colour in our bathroom and the wall behind our bed. I'm through with Arrowtown and now into Juniper. I love the soft greenish, blueish tone this colour has. It's warm and relaxing, and red and chocolate go brilliantly with it. Sounds lovely to me. I kind of won this colour over the Arrowtown. Hubby says if I promise to not use the orange accessories then I can have Juniper. Really, as if I'd use orange when red goes so much better!!
I was a bit naughty this morning. Well I did still have birthday money burning a hole in my bag, so not that bad I guess. Isn't this book delightful? And an absolute bargain at only 19.99! There are plenty of really lovely gift ideas in this book. I haven't even done more than peek yet, so this afternoon you'll be able to find me laying on the sofa with this in my hands.
Oh yes I sure do need this project. You should see the state of my ironing board cover now!! It's all ripped and so in need of some love and attention. If only I could find the perfect fabric. Sigh!
And because I am so far behind in writing thank you notes to people, today I splashed out and bought this truly beautiful note booklet. I shall set up a box of writing equipment so I can easily write notes as needed.
Well that's probably enough colour for one post. Hope you enjoyed my colourful world today. And I hope you are having a cherry day yourselves!
