Hello, everyone!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Ours was busy but very pleasant.
Not much got done over the weekend when it comes to projects. Saturday, we got half of the three car garage ( and soon to be workshop) painted, but the over 90 degrees temperatures started to get to us and had to quit for the day. 

Sunday was special since we got to attend our little nephew's 3rd birthday party. 
We always love it when we can spend time with him.

We also made a little trip to Lowe's for some supplies and during this trip I came across a sample of paint, 
that took my breath away. Pantone Emerald 2013 Color of the Year. 

I think I am in love! :)

Now, green is my favorite color, but this shade is absolutely gorgeous and I can NOT get it out of my mind.
I just have to find a way of using it in my home.

I love rich colors like this one, so it was no surprise when the same thing happened to me last year, 
if you all remember it was "Tangerine Tango".

And this is how I used it for our Summer Porch

 You all know I got my thinking cup on and this color will end up somewhere in our home before this Summer is over. LOL What do you think? Isn't it pretty?

Ok, ok, enough about my color of the year chatter and lets get ready for this party.

  19. I love green, too. My hubby's grandmother's condo was all done in emerald green in the 70's and had lots of silver and glitz that made it shine. I would love it in little doses-like you did with the tangerine- xo Diana
