blue

as we prepare to move into our new house (we closed wed. and will do the final move next weekend) my mind is so full of decorating ideas... i'm just flooded with plans of how to turn this house into our home. and as it is a bit(well, more than a bit really) bigger we will need some new furniture. as i am looking at furniture and especially fabric for pillows and even picking out paint colors- i am being drawn to shades of blue like never before! green has been my color- and i had definitely loved reds and browns, even oranges and yellows, but surprisingly blue has just never excited me or drawn me. i know water- the sky- all these inspiring things that are blue, but i have never just loved it for my own use-- until now. i have been pondering this change, and it occurred to me that i finally found my blue inspiration: mister blue eyes himself! don't you love the vintage e pic ;-) he looks like such a frat boy-- he's going to be mad at me one day for all the funny ways i dressed him- but hey, i needed something to giggle at during those sleep deprived days!

what a looker he's turned into...cutie. i'm not too big into blue either and i'm not too sure about the walls in our playroom, but it's growing on me. it is soothing at times.

If only my head were full of decorating ideas...I guess I'm one of those people who hires someone whose head is full of them. If you ever want to let your head full of ideas overflow at my house, let me know! I'm looking forward to seeing your new house!

I can see how those blue eyes would definitely provide you with inspiration!
