Happy St Paddy's Day

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.
(Will my cherished free time, my over-worked hands, and my "Awww whatever" attitude accomplish any of these wonderful ideas?  You just have to stay tuned to find out ................... but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you.)

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.



Good luck with your painting. It is a BIG chore, I know. But, it'll be beautiful when it's complete. ENJOY your soda bread and have a HAPPY ST.PATRICK's DAY. Take care.
