Inspired by the Sea and the Sand ...


Thursday, May 31, 2012

(... although it doesn't look like I'll be seeing much of either in the near future!)

I need a change of scenery so this weekend I'm changing the great room (yes - again). Maybe this time I'll get it right.

I'm really inspired by the colors on my Sparkpage background so I'm painting the great room with Benjamin Moore Cameo White and peppering the the sofa with pillows in sandy & watery colors - light linen, light blue, light aqua, light sandy tan, ... One has a palm tree, another has a starfish, one has a spiral shell, and one has a pretty fish. Maybe I'll put on Sweet Steel (a band that plays steel drum music) and dream of islands while I paint. (But no margaritas while climbing the ladder!)

Ok - so that's a bit of rambling but ... change is good. Change makes you think differently and maybe respond differently. And when changing your environment lifts your mood, you can tackle the mundane day-to-day riff-raff with a better outlook. So maybe even if I can't get to the beach, I'll be able to imagine that I'm there and enjoy the dream. (When I was a little kid with an imaginary friend, my Mom probably never realized how vital that imagination was going to be to my existence!!)

    Wow Tweets sounds beautiful. One of my bathrooms probably the big master will be seascapes as I already have tons of stuff for it. The other ocean life in bright vibrant colors. Gotta love the water/water theme. My Mom's living room is all light houses, all sea stuff with a huge sailing ship on her mantle. I miss the beach most when I think of FL.

You will have to make us some pictures and a margarita when it is finished. emoticon
