Its all been about colour for me the last few days, what with trying to find the perfect shade to paint the kitchen in, and talking about weddings with my sister. Calum and I are engaged, but no talk of weddings just yet. We'd prefer to get on the property ladder first. Oh and to have a second child, so THEN i can get my figure back for my perfect day! Lets say 2011 at the earliest. I'm ever so slightly hooked on wedding.tv at the mo. So naturally, you start daydreaming about your day when its comes.
When i was in my teens my favourite colours had to be pink and purple, not very original as i think every girl on the planet apart from tomboys liked that colour combo! You should have seen my room! Shocking pink and lilac ~ oh how I cringe!
Its only in the last year or so that I've started to reveal my true colours so to speak. I hate the conventional black and navy just isn't me darling! So for me its chocolate brown. But I can never have just one colour, i always have a duo. And at the mo its partner is shades of aqua or teal. If you had to choose just one colour that would be it. Its so vibrant and cheery.
So taking you back onto weddings ~ I was talking to my sister tonight whilst watching wedding tv and decided my bridesmaids would have to be in a light teal or duck egg blue. I showed her this corsage against some pink roses I have in my hallway at the moment and my heart just melted. The perfect combination.
Murray and I are going away up to Aberdeen tomorrow for the next week so that Calum can get on with redecorationg the kitchen ~ GOOD LUCK DARLING!
To be honest, I'm dreading coming home and seeing what it turns out like. I thought I had found the perfect colour. Stepping stone from crown ~ it matches my Laura Ashley DUCK EGG BLUE gingham curtains that I showed you in a previous post. But to my horror they only do it in a matt finish, which is an absolute no no for our kitchen and Master Murrays grubby hands! So Calum kindly asked the assistant at B&Q to match the colour in dulux range in Kitchen and bathroom paint ~ as you can get practically any colour made up than you can think of. FANTASTIC I THOUGHT! UNTIL..... I went on the website to see what the colour was that he finally got. I'm feeling rather sick to be honest... I knew I should have gone to get the paint myself but we shall see. So here's what the colour should look like... HA HA, WOW, WHAT A MATCH TO MY BACKGROUND OF MY BLOG!
UH OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I'm a perfectionist and I tell you I had the PERFECT COLOUR, now i think my dreams of the perfect kitchen are over before its started! I'm going to have to open the tin and do a tester before it goes on the walls.
Anyway, the less said the better for now.

Before I forget , here's Murray Frost feeling a bit blue too...
It was Grandad Frosts fault honest! He was having the day at grannies yesterday and came home with this present for me! What a corker! Went to the Doctors today just to get it checked out. All is fine but he'll have one big shiner in a couple of days when the swelling has gone down. My poor baby. Still manages to have a smile on his face though!
Away to pack for going up the road. Lots of quality time with Mum, carbooting, and thrifting ahead. Yay!
