“To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive.” Robert Louis Stevenson
Hello….how are you?
The last time we chatted I had just returned from a mini get-away, one which inspired a few changes. just in case you missed it
However this past week I’ve been preparing for a much bigger change. do the happy dance
I can’t show you yet…however what I can tell you is this sweet little cottage is smack dab in the middle of getting a new look.
Goodbye yellow…hello……(drum roll)
A few months back when the house painting decision was made and I began thinking about the color If you are curious🌸
I started thinking about the first home I had ever purchased (in California) it was yellow I loved that home!
The next home was yellow (also in California) I loved this home too!
The last home my husband and I sold ( yes in California) was white clapboard. (you guessed it…it too was loved)
In 2004 when we purchased this home (as a rental) it was blue. have to be honest…the love factor hadn’t bloomed at the time
that is before we had it painted yellow (love began)
I also realized that my moving to the Oregon coast and into this home has been a great adventure most likely the biggest one in my life (grin)
so why not just go for it!
(after all shouldn’t a home reflect it’s owner)
I’ve got to say that my husband has been so supportive of all my decisions. THANK YOU JOE! (real men wear pink) Joe
Obviously there’s been a wide range of responses. One of my friends actually put his head into his hands and said “Oh no not pink!”
The painter said “well I guess I’m going to have to get use to having pink all over my uniform” yep Chip you will 👛👚🌷🌸💕😉
Of course my gal friends who are the best can’t wait to actually have a friend that lives in a little pink house. And yes as you can imagine…
this just tickles me
I created a new board on Pinterest called “Little Pink Houses”:
