Today while Ireland and most of Western civilization are "wearing the green", I will be busy in my living room "clearing the green".
I'm repainting my living room yellow. The colors you see here are not true -- they're much prettier.
And I do like the green that's throughout much of my first level. But my house is in shade for most of the day, so I wanted to bring as much light as possible into my home. The yellow I've chosen I call "lemon lime". (It's actually called cornflower). The color is light and bright without being too vibrant; and it's so cheerful.
I also have a few accessory ideas floating through my head that are based on these gorgeous throw pillows that I bought last summer.
However, in spite of my busy Saturday plans, I shan't ignore St Patrick altogether. I have plans for a breakfast green smoothie, some afternoon Irish soda bread and a much needed green beer after the days work is done.
And there'll be a phone call to my favorite leprechaun who was born 25 years ago today.
|Happy Birthday my darling, Amy!|
Enjoy your day.
