Today is so blessedly so much cooler...well, I'm inside, so I guess I don't know that for sure. But the last time I was here, I only had to be outside for about 2 seconds before I was gasping for breath! Today is the weekly Friday Farmer's Market, which is always one of the most fun days to come to Country Village. It is a nice change from home life right now, because we have been doing some project work on our house that has required all our furniture to be moved either outside or in our kitchen. It's been one of those things where you say "well, as long as all this is moved already we might as well do (blank)." Then fill in the blank. Yesterday we painted our living room. It is so nice!!! For the first time ever, as an adult at least, I live in a home with walls that aren't painted just white. Well, our house in Snohomish had painted walls, but we didn't paint them or choose the colors, so I think that doesn't count.
We had spare paint from doing the basement (which also doesn't count, because we haven't been able to do any living in there yet, as it flooded almost immediately after finishing it). It is called "Antique" by Waverly, from Lowe's. In our big open livingroom, depending on the wall and the time of day, this color looks white, cream, pale mustard yellow, or a nice warm vanilla. I have loved all colors so far. This weekend I'm heading to Eastern Washington for a family reunion while Chris stays home and puts it all back together (three cheers for a wonderful husband!!). I can't wait to see what it looks like. Maybe our house will finally start getting decorated...?
Anyway, here are the new weekly specials! Take 10% off any of these items between now and the next time I change them, typically on Thursday. I have half of them below, check out our site here for the complete list for the week! As always, feel free to email me with any questions (though you won't hear back from me until after I return on Sunday!).Cinnabun Hand-poured Soy VotivesGardener's Journal Platter, by Park DesignsHand-thrown Black Star Pottery Plate, by SmokehouseWildflowers Quilted Throw, by Victorian HeartCottage Rose Tea-For-One Set, by Tag
