The Blues

If I tell you how many quarts of blue paint that I have asked for from our paint contractor in order to find the right shades of blue you will think I am CRAZY!

I started out with cups of paint with foam brushes, and then advanced to just rolling out the paint.

Our color theme for the house is tan, blue and a little dark brown. I will post the colors soon.

The painting is all done and I am SO EXCITED! The house looks incredible. They are just doing touch-ups today and tomorrow.

Window to the World

This photo is the crux of my current dilemma.

I live in blazing hot Henderson, Nevada.

When we moved here 3 years ago I thought that I had to have shutters to shut out every ray of the super hot sun and keep my house cool.

Now that we own a home, we have debated what kind of window coverings we should buy.

We have some pretty sweet views of the sky and what we call mountains down here from many of our windows.

A few weeks ago I had a pow-wow with my husband, a shutter proponent, about my dilemma. It helped that our chat was during a gorgeous sunset, viewable from all of the to-be shuttered windows. My husband agreed that we had some killer views from our new home.

So I called Mr. Sunburst shutters and said -- I don't want your shutters after all. We are going to soak up light and not see the world through 3 1/2 inch polywood slats.

We'll see if I will be singing a different tune when the summer heat is beating down on us.
