Yellow doors...

I have a thing for bright front doors. Many of you know that from my apple green door that greets you when you visit...

I stumbled upon this post from Black White Yellow with doors painted in one of my favorite hues - YELLOW. And, funny enough, it is almost identical to the door at GiGi's that I painted a couple years ago. To get the right shade of yellow, I had my friends at Stadium Hardware scan my fave purse to match the shade. Yes, eyes were rolling there that day!!!

And, this is also the shade of my lovely fairy door!

Red Kitchens!

I thought I was one of the last to have this crazy red countertop and backspalsh...then, I found this posting on Atticmag. I'm all into retro...I guess others are too! Sometimes you have to work with what you have!

A QUICK visit to SF!

I spent less than 36 hours in SF a couple weeks ago for work. It was a nice opportunity to say hi to a few friends and old office mates. However, I'm hoping for a trip again in the summer where I can spend more time with them all...

Shopping at the Ferry Building...

St. Patrick's Day 2009!

James and I celebrated this past St. Patty's Day in Chicago with my friend Jen...a good time was had by all (I mean, come on! We were drinking GREEN BEER!).
