The Color of Fun!


This morning I saw such a fun little linky party hosted by the most inspiring bloggie friend I have, Maria of Color Me Happy, that I just had to join in the fun. It’s so GRAY…DREARY..and WET around here..that this seemed like the perfect fix.

Of course, I can’t be TOO gray…a NEW COUCH is on the way!! It’s too be delivered today this morning!!  Oh happy day..Thank you Lord!  I’m still pinching myself to see if it’s really happening. I really think Maria will approve of the couch. (Crossing my fingers!)

I wish I could have taken her shopping with me, but sigh..she just wasn’t available (due to about 2200 miles of distance-Ha!).  Here’s a sneak peak at the couch… (using my cell phone..Yipes!)  This is from the warehouse at The Dump. Thanks Millicent for a great idea for a place to buy an inexpensive couch!

PS. That cowhide sadly, does NOT come with the couch. I just didn't have an exta $200.00 to get it. Ah..well..maybe next time!

But ..back to her post…She was asking us the question…What Color is Fun?!!  Well, I think these beautiful things from Murdoch’s Bathhouse in Galveston…are just the perfect color of fun! What do you think?

I was shopping with my friend, Gaylan, and snapping photos left and right. I kept telling her THESE ARE THE COLORS!! These are the ones I was telling you about! I’m so uneducated about color..so it was sort of like the blind leading the blind. But the NEW colors for design are happy colors according to Maria. She called them ‘true’ colors.

If you want to join in the fun..just drop by Maria’s and tell her I sent you. :o)  Meanwhile, I’ll be working on a good “let’s get the house together before the holidays” post. (Gee!..got to think of some excuse to post photos of the living room with my new couch in it..right?)

And if you are looking for some great ideas for Christmas, Murdoch’s Bathhouse in Galveston might just be a great place to start!  (If you can't get to Galveston, you might try this online shop.)  Also, visit Gina's The Shabby Chic Cottage for some really lovely nautical gift ideas and home decor.

Happy Homemaking!

Welcome to Comin' Home! If you lived nearby, I'd invite you over to my neck of the woods for a nice long chat and a cup of tea out on the deck. But since we can't do that, I hope you'll stay and look around. I love learning new things and sharing what I learn with friends. Comin' Home is where I share tips from my many projects. Let's have some fun together! XO Donna
