9/20/08 Not a painter

My big project today was testing some house paint colors. "Templeton gray" (a bluish-gray, left), "Hancock gray" (a greenish-gray, right), with white trim; another color family altogether, or chicken out and stick with white?

I'm no painter, but I'm also no photographer, and the photo doesn't reveal the streaks, splashes, drips or uneven spots. It's not easy to paint well!

This morning some wonderful new toddler toys appeared on our porch. Katrina loves the playsets at Julian's school, and we didn't have any. Ah, but for the generosity and practicality of friends living nearby with girls outgrowing toys just as Katrina is getting into them.

I have so much to do to prepare for next week, but it's Saturday night and I just don't feel like doing anything!

Ooohhh.....I LOVE the Hancock gray. I'd put it with black trim! But that's only because the return of Fall has me all into this olive/black combo thing. I keep seeing those two colors together and I love it! It'll be gorgeous no matter what you choose!
