Colour me Happy it’s a Day for Celebration!

By 03/26/2009January 26th, 201734 Comments

For the second week in a row my blog is in the Washington Post Blog Watch.  This week it was for the post I just wrote on the 5 Questions to consider when selecting a new colour for your kitchen!  So I just had to post this image sent to me by Rebecca Sherman at Houses Gardens People (love the name of her blog).  It’s wallpaper and look at the wee dog. . . love him!  And this wallpaper just shouts celebration!

Thanks for reading my blog!
