Okay Dirt Roaders, I finally took the plunge. I had been contemplating changing our family room’s color for a while. It had been Rock Candy, which is a yellow/gold color. When I first painted it a few years ago I was pleased until a certain time in the afternoon. Then it took on the beautiful glow of Kraft Singles. Yes, good ol’ American cheese. I lived with it though and even grew to like it. Until I got tired of it. I do that sometimes.
Enter: Midwinter Sky
Midwinter Sky is a BHG color, which kind of sold me from the beginning because I love their stuff. Classy yet homey (
yo, can you get down wif dat?) Sorry…got sidetracked for a minute. 🙂 Anywho…I was really wanting something that looked old-fashioned. Something with a hint of turquoise (love that color…
Thanks Mom for always dressing me in that as a child and now I have a strange addiction to it.) but not too much. Midwinter Sky had that kinda washed out, antique color that I was going for…that I wanted to use for a neutral. Yep…you heard that right. See, I still wanted to use my same stuff. By the way, there is something about this color that I ADORE with white and mercury glass. I don’t know…maybe in a few years I will have some issue with it, but for now I love it with my reds and golds and burlap shades.
(btw: I never could find that Ravioli Soup recipe, so I made up my own. Just a basic chicken and veggie soup with the ravioli thrown in at the last-minute. The cheese in that particular brand was a tad wangy for me…but if I could find a different kind, it would be a keeper. I shall be on the lookout. It’s a great way to incorporate pasta into your soup.)
Enjoy your weekend!
