Spring Inspiration

While doing yard work, Shawn found this:


And yes-it prompted the urge to buy paint (I didn't buy any-but the urge was strong). How can you not be inspired after being reminded of such a beautiful color?! Most of us associate robin egg blue with Tiffany Blue. But each time I see this color, my mind goes to Chinoiserie (especially used in an eclectic application), ceramic lamps, and a variety of brights like red and orange and of course, enameled jewelry. Anyway, it is no wonder that it has remained a popular color throughout time.

it must be spring?! would you believe we have a nest in the wreaths on both our front and back doors? I am going to paint my workroom but just can't find the right color...I want that pretty blue/green I see all over...that is until I start looking for paint and can't find it!? if you do look at paint I would love a suggestion...it has to look good with chocolate brown!

I'm glad you found them in your yard and not mine, my kids would have broken them. I also have to agree with Rob and Lori.
