A funny thing happened on the way to the forum...

...I was surfing the web, trying to find pretty photos of painted tables. You see my kitchen table, after 11 years, is beginning to show its age & I know that I,for one, don't like to show my age, so I'm quite sure my kitchen table feels the same.

As I searched, I found that I became sidetracked by different photos. What kind of photos you ask? Why those containing rooms decorated in blue & green, of course!

I never realized what a pretty color palette they created until tonight. Here's a look:

Blue & green has completely enchanted me. Inquiring minds want to do you feel about it? Any thoughts?

Oh and one last thing...guess what? I'm being featured over at Debbiedoos today! I'm very excited because I'm crazy about Debbie. She has such personality and keeps it real. Gotta love that, you know? Check it out here. I'm trying to contain my excitement but I really want to jump up & down in my seat! LOL

If you are visiting from Debbie's, I welcome you! I hope you enjoy your visit & that we become fast friends. Hope you have a wonderful sun-shine filled weekend!

  7. Hi Gina what great inspiration photos!!Just stopped by from my friend Debbie's blog, congrats on being featured! Debbie is a great friend, I've know her from when we use to post on RMS and followed her when she started her blog. Just became your newest follower, I look forward to seeing more and would love if you stopped by my blog and followed me back. Have a great weekend, Martina

  8. Hi Gina- I popped over from Debbie DooDoo's too! She's something else, that girl!! I had blue and green back in the 70's~but we won't talk about how old that makes me!;>) It kind of lost favor for many years and now I see it is coming back. I think next will be navy blue and pink (from the 80's). You havew a very sweet blog and I am signing up to follow! may be ssorry about that sometime in the future!

  9. I'm stopping by from Debbie Doo's too. I'm a recent fan of blue and green too, but be something in the air! Have a great weekend!

  10. Hi Gina, Love your inspiration pictures and the blue and green together! Congrats to you on being featured at Deb's!

  11. I'm here from Debbies :) the blues and greens look great and I can relate to having a tired looking kitchen table and have been wondering how to redo mine as well. Good Luck with your project! and have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Hey Gina!! So glad to see you featured on Debbies site!! Yeahhh, and I have to agree that you are always so great in saying a "hey back" to us when we post on your site! Have a great day!

  13. Hey kid congrats, I saw you featured at Debbies....Now, blue and green, I love it!


  14. Hi Gina! Miss Debbie told me to come and I of course obeyed! :-) Your blog is just lovely and I am so enjoying peeking around to "get to know you" better. Your inspiration photos in this post were just fabulous and made me think of summertime which I am seriously longing for these days! Pop over and say 'hi' sometime if you get a chance. :-)

  15. found your blog through debbiedoo's post. i had never been a big blue fan until lately. green has always been a fave of mine. i'm in the process of redecorating and am using blue and green (with chocolate brown and yellow accents). i love the feel of them. they're very lively and organic. you can't go wrong with the colors God chose for the land and the sky. if you've got time to drop by "my place" you're more than welcome! now following you.

  16. Hi Gina! Here from DebbieDoos (don't you love her?) You have a great place here. Think I'll put my feet up and stay a while.

  17. Congratulations on being featured!!! Debbie is the best:)

    Your inspiration photo's are so pretty. I always remember the saying blue and green must not be seen except in the washing machine. But I guess that's not true cuz it looks great together in those pics!

  18. Your feature was *awesome* Congrats!!!!!
    I like blue and green, and these images are lovely. The photo with the distressed blue chest and pears painting is my very favorite!

  19. Hi Gina, I'm stopping by from DebbieDoo's too! What a great feature, love your blog!
