It's all about the pink today.
For starters I would like to finally thank Sabrina at
for this thoughtful award.
As the recipient of this award I am supposed to tell you seven things about myself.
Hm-mm. This is the hard part.
After blogging for three years I feel like you all know everything there is to know about me, my house, and the fam.
I am an open book and I have nothing new to say at parties.
So here are a few random tidbits...
1. I despise cheap toilet paper
2.The trunk of my car is an extension of my purse.
3. I really do throw like a girl
4. I sometimes get in such a hurry that I forget deodorant so I have a back up in my car ( see 2)
5. There is a bathtub in my hallway that has been there for two months now. I bet it will be there another two months.
6. I don't have one thing ready for the November Traveling Door show that I participate in. Yikes.
7. I work well under pressure. See 6.
I am also supposed to pass this award on to fifteen newly discovered blogs. I will have to get back to you on that. It is hard to narrow it down to just fifteen.
Thank you again to Sabrina. I hope you will stop by her blog and check out Pinkytopia.
Keeping with the pink theme, I did finally add those needed touches of raspberry to the breezeway.
After painting the oak piece in this unexpected shade, I knew I needed to balance it out with some pink on the other side of the room.
So this is what I came up with.
Pillows were a no brainer way to add color for not much money.
I found these at Younkers and TJ Maxx.
and this one matches a throw I bought last year. Score!
This uplifting artwork from Kathy McCullen also brought in that lively touch of color I was needing.
Flowers, a funky placemat from Pier 1 and my latest issue of House Beautiful completed my look.
As soon as I get a chance I think I will curl up in one of those chairs with that magazine.
For now, I am off to pull together a fall door candy idea for the front door.
I hope you will join me here on Sunday night for Motivated Monday.
I thought it would be fun to do a theme this time and that theme will be Fall Doors.
Hope to see you this Sunday.
