Pale Blue Kitchen Walls



I've strayed happily into the realm of more of a straight pale blue than a blue-green, and I'm content to stay here with Benjamin Moore's Blue Angel in semi-gloss latex.

Honeysuckle and privet are in full bloom everywhere I go outside. The air is full of their scents--the glamorous sweetness of the honeysuckle vines and the wholesome warm smell of privet are a perfect combination.

The photo is amazing, so are the fragrances (I've been relishing them lately, too)! Enjoy your delightfully blue kitchen.

There's an L.M. Montgomery quote for almost anything, in my opinion. Here's one for honeysuckle that I've always loved:

"Anne gathered some sprays of pale yellow honeysuckle and put them in her hair. She liked the delicious hint of fragrance, as of some aerial benediction, above her every time she moved."

I like your blue. :)

Anna, just wanted to thank you for teaching me a new sewing technique. You know back in your apron tutorial you showed how to sew the strings? Well it came in handly when I was making tieback for a project. It just made it SOOO easy doing it the way you showed! I had been using those long wires for turning spaghetti straps, and let me tell you, it isn't easy at all! I like your method much better.

Just wanted to let you know I admire that you are so generous in your knowledge and don't try and 'keep' it all to yourself. I've encountered a few people in my time who don't like to make it easy for their fellow man to learn to do things easier. They'd rather let you struggle to learn on your own and are unwilling to share their knowhow. All I can say again is THANK YOU!!

Gorgeous color! Congratulations on your new kitchen walls.

The honeysuckle and privet are just exquisite, too! Blue, yellow, and white never fail to be a perfect color combination.

Yours in Christ,
Shannon

I love how you call the sweetness of the honeysuckle "glamorous". Sometimes I read your posts and find your word choices to be both exciting and perfect.
