maybe...

maybe it's because of where i work. or maybe because i am my mother's daughter. or maybe because i am ready to feel adult-ish, or ahem, kidult-ish. lately i am gravitating toward white(bisque, ecru, enamel, cotton, cream, antique lace) interiors juxtaposed with wood(birch, mahogany, pine, oak) and shiny(sequins, patina, metal, tin, steel) . gotta have some shiny. and i'm not ready to part with my love for pink(sorry husband).

i have a lot of treasures that need a cleaner back drop. since i have a tendency to collect the misfits. the chipped, peeling, stained, careworn, and forgotten. oh i hope this home falls into place soon!

ha! i know, the only time i've ever painted was in my dungeon of an old apartment. but i wouldn't mind having a pink kitchen.

i've always wanted a rolling pin without handles. i bet they work so much better.

These are gorgeous! I love white, too, as long as you can keep it from getting dirty!

i'm terrible, i love when white gets old and grungy. i only like certain bright whites. teeth and hair. and that's only because i'm southern.

I kind of had a fit when I saw all those rolling pins. Perfect perfect perfect!

Though I do love splashes of color, there is just something about bare, perfectly worn-down wood.
