Hello Pretty October!

I LOVE October. I love the new autumn smell in the air, cool nights, leaves changing colors. It just feels cozy. People start nesting, baking and slowing down. Things seem easier. Sweeter. 
 
I am ready for all of it! 
 
What do you have planned to make your life pretty this October?

PRETTY Paint colors finally chosen!

paint colorsChoosing paint colors for the new little house has just about put me over the edge. I blame Pinterest. Too many beautiful choices!

I of course,came back to pink. I considered playing it safe with neutrals. I got the samples. Painted the extra drywall with Manchester tan and Revere Pewter. Lovely colors. Just not me.

Back to the little paint swatches. Back to pastels. Back to my beloved pink. All Glidden.
Barely Blush for the ceiling for all of the ceilings.
Pink Beige for all walls.
True Turquoise for accents.

I wanted soft & cozy colors. Painting begins next week!
