OK, so I was going for more of a terracotta feel. But I can live with lobster bisque. Once the new counter tops are installed, it will all come together better (like it does in my head). The floors are a whole other issue. Even though the linoleum pattern was picked "to hide the dirt," it is just plain ugly and from an altogether different decade.

The mirror was a gift to my mom from my father's sister and brother-in-law. I have always like it, and so I rehung it after painting in virtually the same spot that it has hung for the last twenty-five years, sandwiched between the dining room window and the backdoor (which still needs to be repainted).

At some point, I have been meaning to blog about making a home in a house that has previously played a role in your life. In my case, that would include two grandparental homes and now the home from my youth. But I will leave that for another day.

My mouse hand is already quite chilled.

And I still need to offer Happy Birthday wishes to Marni and Jenny F.

That's a lovely mirror. And, I definitely prefer lobster bisque over pink or peach. Everything I owned as a kid was pink, and as a result, I now stay far away from the color. Having so much of it, ruined what should be a pretty color.

I thought lobster brisque is a soup or something. Did you splash soup on the wall?

I like that mirror too! A lot!

Love the teasel design.

Like the lobster bisque which would go great with terra cotta accessories.

I made some lobster bisque for dinner for K and is looked almsot like that, a little paler though.
