I like to write about decorating projects and remembrances of my childhood on Balaclava St.

Happy New Year

It's been ages since I tinkered with  a room and was hankering for a change. You know that saying "a change is as good as a rest"?...well, that isn't true. Nevertheless, a change in room colour does perk me up for a bit. Nowhere near as much as a rest on a sunny beach would, but it does cheer me ...sort of like having 2 glasses of wine in under an hour cheers me.  My good friend, decorator, zen master, neighbourhood jester and saint-in-waiting, Tom, helped me to change the climate in my bathroom to sunny beach aqua. Thanks Tom...I've said it before and I'll say it again - I'm not worthy!!

With cottagey, beachy accessories, the new
colour evokes that lazy, relaxing, sea-side vibe


Although I've done everything correctly these two pics want to show up sideways. Since I've resolved to go with the flow in this new year, I'll leave in the pics and not let this bother me.
This might not seem like a huge deal to you, but ... baby steps.

I've also resolved not to take this whole vampire Twilight thing so seriously.

Happy 2012!!
