Good Morning Dear Friends;  I hope you are all having a beautiful day.  Last night we went to WM, for a few things, and thought I would go and look at some paint colors.. I found some really nice one’s.. DH was not too happy about the painting part,, he is not a painter.. but I am.. I love to paint and decorate… So any way I thought I would share them with you, and see if I did good….. Now I am only painting four rooms since the kitchen and dinning and living room is all open, I am not going to paint them… I do love the light tan color, we do have a tray ceiling and I think I will paint the inside of it.. not sure yet…  So here are my choices…..

Paint colors and Pink S 016

It is so hard to get a good photo of the paint cards.. So I hope you can see them, I took some out side too.

Paint colors and Pink S 015

The top one is so much better,, from left to right the Lavender is going in the guest bath,, love that color.. it is called Luscious Lilac..  OOPS; hehe they are out of order,,, not a surprise there,,, the second one is for our master bath,,, Golden Sunbeam.. such pretty names….  The third color is for our bedroom,, l love a Sage Green color,, this is called Ducketymud,,, ok this is not such a pretty name,, but I do love the shade of it…..  and the last one is for my Studio and guest room… Honey Caramel…. mmmmmm sounds yummy….   and it looks really pretty with my curtains…  Starting on our bed room first and work my way out…. I will make sure I take photos along the way to show you how it is going.. Not sure when I will be starting, but as soon as I can..

Now I have a few photos to share with you, I took some today while Isabella and I were setting out side on the patio… it is so pretty out today…

I am getting ready to have some painting done here too!!!! My Master bedroom and bath, but since I fell off the ladder last time I painted , I have been banned from painting, and hubby is a perfectionist and takes to long, so I hired a guy to do it!!!!!I do LOVE to paint though!!!!
Good luck and have fun!!!!!
