Welcome to the fun house...


Another thing you'll find if you pop by to see me--besides me, my wrap thingy, no makeup and dust--is a crazy clown house (as I like to call it).

You see, once upon a time (about a week or so ago) a painter brought some samples over and proceeded to slather my walls (yes we've hired a painter. It was one of those win-win situations for both of us so we decided what the heck...) Things just got crazier from there and soon not even the molding was safe. Never leave me in a room with a painter at my disposal. It's dangerous.

Upon review of the many, many samples slathered on my walls (I haven't shown you the half of them) we decided to scrap the neutrals and go BOLD! Today is the day the madness will begin so it's only natural that my feet grew a little cold last night (of course they're always cold at night but this time I'm referring to the cold feet that make one sit up and exclaim,"What the heck are we doing?!")

"Are we sure we want to do this?" I asked Rick.

"Of course." He said. "I love it. This is who we are. We're fun people and we need fun colors."

And then I busted up into hearty, rolling laughter. "Oh yeah, we're just a barrel of laughs." I said.

"I know." He said. "Just look at you laughing now."

Well I don't know how much fun we really are, but I do know we've never been afraid of color. Paint is my friend. It makes me happy. And I'm excited to finally, FINALLY, stamp this house with a little of my own personality.

Wish me luck. And say goodbye to the crazy clown house (goodbye crazy clown house :} xoxoxo)

Hey! The really light brown and one of the darker browns look like the two colors I have in my living room and stairwell. (I am not fun and bold; I am neutral. Although my living room used to be a bright sunny yellow. It was nice, but got tiring after several years.) We're going to be doing some painting soon too, but since we are also thinking of selling our house it is NOT the time to go bold! Good luck and enjoy your bold colors!
