Granny Smith


I painted my kitchen last week.  While my sis was here on her vacation, she just happened to have a piece of scrapbook paper with her that was the exact color of green I wanted to paint the kitchen.  Remember, all my walls were builders brown.  Yuckie!  So, she let me keep the piece of paper and I cheerfully skipped into my local Home Depot and had the sweet fellow there color match it to the paper. It came out almost exactly the color of the scrapbook paper.  I don't have a name for the color so I am calling it Granny Smith Green.  I also made new curtains in there as well.  You can not really see the sweet floral print on them.  The green I was matching is very subtle in the fabric.
 I loved being at my Aunt Pat's farmhouse as a kid.  I know that I should be living on a farm.  But I am in a subdivision where there is a HOA and not a sheep to be found.  So, I will just re-create my dear Aunties farmhouse kitchen.

Your walls are just delicious ... he he he. :o) What a pretty color!! And your curtains are so charming. :o) I too hold dear a special home in my heart and I tend to gravitate towards designs that bring me back to it. :o)
Keep your dream alive ... one day you will have a field of sheep! :o)
Have a wonderful week!
Sincerely, Trish

We just returned from vacation and what fun to see what you have been up to! You have been busy!! Sewing, cooking, hostessing, gardening and painting! Wow! Your kitchen looks so lovely and inviting. I pray you get your farm home and sheep some day! You are a testimony of "blooming where you are planted!"
