No, just shabby.

This is how I'm currently living.  I can cheekily look you in the eye and state that I'm going for a 'shabby chic' look.  I've always been a good liar.

I'm in a quandary. I can't decide what colors to paint my kitchen... I want something different and dramatic something to match my new sinks, countertops and backsplash...

Only one problem here.

Not getting them... I have not just ONE daughter getting married... I have TWO in the next year.  So, alas, not this year for the new countertops, sinks, backsplash and, what the hell, let's throw in a new stove and dishwasher too.  (on an up note though, our third kid is a boy)

So with that said, I'm sitting here with a bazillion different paint chips, some copic markers and paper trying to figure something out.

What I'm figuring out here, in this situation, is.... that I need a cocktail... or a highball...(still love that word), or maybe just a winning lottery ticket.


  1. I love it! I wasn't smart enough to think of shabby chic as an excuse for my living room, which would be a great match for your kitchen! Thank you! And good luck.

    .Oh I hope for wonderful things to happen in your life! I just know that something will come along.

  3. Maybe if your cocktail is pretty enough you could take your color inspiration from that. Perhaps you should try out a few.

    1. I like that thought! After enough, it'll all blend and be just delightful! Or perhaps, the walls will be fine as they are....LOL
