I suppose this is evidence that I cannot live in a home of quiet color. Oh well, no use trying to fight my nature right? The trends may be on pale pales and pallet furniture but I suppose all I can muster up is a wee bit of harmony with white walls and a happy dash of pallet shelves. I wouldn't trade our Ert & Bernies for the world. Every year I gift the mister with a portrait and every year he gives me a sock monkey. I'm behind in finding and artist for this years' portrait. Looks like I'll have to muster up a paintbrush myself. I am so not a painter. Anyone wanna create one? I can offer up something handmade or cookies?
