It's Not Easy Being Green

My big project spectrum job for the month was to paint my bathroom gReEn. And as you can see I didn't hold back. I originally chose orange which was quickly vetoed by Kyle and then I chose a lighter shade of green but in the interest of avoiding a pastel look I went with the color Kyle chose, Spring Green. I do like it but it's still a shock considering I've lived nearly 10 years with a white bathroom. I am enjoying accessorizing the room with bright colors such as my orange & green hand dyed yarn, and framed candy wrappers from Molly in Japan. I have a quilt in the works which will hang on the wall opposite the mirror.










And since I've been lax in the blogging department, I'll sneak in a few of my favorite green photos from my archives. R, do these look familiar?














I know this is already a bit long but I have to catch you up on a few things...Colleen won the drawing from my Sip, Stitch & Pitch contest. I haven't forgotten you Colleen!! The prize will be sent shortly!

Tonight I met up with Rebecca for some knitting at Borealis Yarns. The shop ended up being closed after their big sale weekend so we knit & chatted outside the coffee shop next door. It was a great evening to be outside and I am happy to have finally met Rebecca.

I love the green bathroom! Oh gosh, how lovely. I'm taking notes, as we're going to be remodeling our bathroom soon and I don't want to do dull colors.

I was thinking about heading over the Borealis to knit tonight too, but I remembered they were closed. I stayed home and cleaned up after the kids instead. I think you definitely had the better plan! That coffee shop is so nice, isn't it? I just love the people there.

Love the bathroom. I am a huge fan of brightly colored rooms. Just can't wait until I have my own house to paint.

I like it! And that is such a good idea to frame the candy wrappers and use yarn as an accessory. The color will definitely wake you up in the morning. I like the way you framed the picture.
