Hi Dear Friends! It's been awhile since I posted, and I've missed all of you. But I digress already. I have to tell you about the house! After many many weeks of delays, we are finally almost back on schedule. The roof will be finished up today, and windows and doors have arrived. Ron needs me to pick out paint colors for the exterior, and I'm on my way to Lowes to pour over paint chip colors.
I'm fueling up for the job right now.
And, here I am at Lowes. It's a lot of work picking out colors, but I think I'm there, and pretty happy with my decisions.
And, by the way, I found these curtains on clearance, and checked to see how I liked them with my whites and reds. (Oh, and when I say 'on clearance', I mean that the curtains were originally priced at $99.00 for each set of 2. I bought them for $9.99).
And I love them, and now I seriously want that ceramic rain boot to go with them, somewhere in the room.
And I like that yellow pillow, but mostly because of how it says exactly what I'll be feeling when I move into my southern Indiana cottage.
And Now; Drum Roll Please! Here are my colors for the exterior, and some for the interior! I'm so excited. So, the one on the left is "Blue Mountain Top" by Sherwin Williams, which I picked out for the exterior, with white trim and a cardinal red front door. The middle blue is the entryway color (it's Freedom Found by Olympic), while "fall chill" will be on the livingroom/dining and kitchen walls. Kitchen cabinets will be white with a cardinal red island.
Wow. Lots of color, but I love color and have never shied away from it. I can't wait to get going. Be sure and look at my page "the house that Ron built" for updates on the cottage.
Love you all! Thanks for your patience and kindness, and love. See you back here soon.
