DIY Project Parade

It’s a DIY Show Off day and I can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to. Me? I did manage to paint one wall in a guest bedroom to see how it looked with Mythic paint and I think I like the color and I love the quality so that’s next in line. Mr. DIY planted some more grape vines, some wisteria and clematis and worked on our monstrous grape arbor. It’s bare in the colder months but once summer is here, it’s a tunnel of grapes and leaves and is so pretty. Last year, the rusted supports were replaced with wood and it was rebuilt by Mr. DIY. I feared the grapes were traumatized – it was quite an ordeal but I see buds! Hurray! More to come on those to projects in the future.

We also have a winner for the Phillips LED lamp! “What role does color and light play in creating a certain mood in your home?” The winner is – Lisa from Reflections in a Gazing Ball.

Living in a home with virtually NO natural lighting sources, I have come to appreciate light and color sources in new ways. Every lamp choice, light bulb, or even shade can dramatically influence the look of one room. I especially value candle light for the calming light it sheds over a space and the soul. Color changes so dramatically from one room to the next, a feast for the eyes and senses. Light and color can lift your mood, calm the senses after a day of brutal assaults to the eyes, and blanket the mind with memories of misty hues of times gone by. Off to see the lamp!

Congratulations Lisa! Please email your mailing address and I’ll forward it to my contact. Lucky girl! I’m jealous! I hope you’ll give us a review. It’s so cool! If you didn’t win, there’s still a chance! Head over to the Color Your World sweepstakes and enter daily!
