A little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That

Any one sick of winter and snow and this crazy weather that we have been having all over the world,
please raise your hand!!

Yeah, I thought so!


We got quite a bit of snow and we were snowed in today but the sun actually did shine for most of the day so that was nice.

I hope those that got hit with the snow are safe and warm.

Please keep those in Australia that are going through a MAJOR, MAJOR devastation right now in your prayers.

You can keep up to date from A-M over at The House that A-M Built.
She has been giving updates and it is just sad to see what is happening over there.

Today while we were snowed in I started on my next project,

My bedroom!!

I know, I know!

But Michelle, didn't you JUST paint your bedroom a couple of months ago??

Why the answer would be yes!

I think I need some serious PA - Painters Anonymous!! :)

I think I heard my hubby say something about an intervention!!

Needless to say I really needed my beachy blues back!
I really liked the coziness of the gray but I am a beach girl and the blues just suit me.

I painted today and I chose one of these colors...

Can you guess which one I chose?

I will show you..

soon!!! :)

hee hee!!!

I also wanted to thank you for your wonderful comments abouts my puff ball flowers over at the Be Mine Bonanza at At Home with K.

I had fun making them and those little suckers are kind of addicting!!!

Thank you again Kindra for hosting!!

I also wanted to thank Cathy over at Check it Off and Brandi over at Don't Disturb This Groove for passing on awards to me!
Please visit these wonderful ladies if you have not already.

Cathy was born in Michigan and now lives in Ohio but we found out that we share that same love of a particular lake where my heart and soul belong!
Glen Lake!!
She is so wonderful and talented and her love of life and the outdoors is so inspiring!

I introduced myself to Brandi a while back after seeing her beautiful picture and sweet comments at blogs that we both follow and she was so sweet and inviting and I am enjoying getting to know her! She is very talented (check out the chair cover she just did here, it is so amazing!) and so very sweet!

I am supposed to tell you some things about me, which you can read here and of course I pass this along to all of you that would love to join in and tell us about you!
I know it say it a lot but I really do love getting to know you!!

Thank you again to all of you for following me and inspiring me and just being my friends!!

See you soon with the paint color that I chose!

Stay safe and warm!

Comeca Jones said...

I like the shore line mist as well.I suggest color to anyone but me I have a long way to go.(head shaking) Love the new look.

Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures/Treasured Moments said...

Could you please rub some of your painting energy onto me....please!!!???!!! Can't wait to see. My guess is Shoreline Mist.

Tonya said...

I don't know if I have been following your blog long enough to make an educated guess on this one, but I am going to take a stab at it & say Tropical Surf?

Amy@HomeRemediesRX said...

I'm guessing Shoreline Mist... and I just wanted to let you know how much I love your blog and I thought I was already following it...but further investigation showed me that I was not (gasp!) But I am now... keep up the fun and inspiration!

Anonymous said...

dedeetsyshop said...

Sea Spray! I love that color! :) Can't wait to see it!

Anonymous said...

Okay, I haven't even started painting my bedroom and your painting a second time?! LOL I love all three. Can't wait to see which color you go with! You can come help me if you still feel a need to paint :)

PS Oh, and I did receive a phone call from your hubby about some sort of intervention.....

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

The weather has been a bit wacky lately. I would love some sunshine to boost my spirits.

I'd say you picked Shoreline Mist. It was very misty for me at the shore that's for sure! Love you new font and header :)

Amy Kinser said...

Can't wait to see what color your picked.

Love of the Sea said...

I love all of the colors...I am going to vote for Tropical Surf!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good morning dearest heart! Oh, I know which color you chose!!!!! The grays and whites go very well with this color, I know because I am so torn between the three colors, but I am learning how to use them all together!!!! AND I cannot wait to see what you dish up this summer, with your beachy vision! OH I need to go visit some friends in the Land Down Under....ANOTHER DEVASTATION?????? I must run and see...and pray of course. Blessings to you and isn't this winter just one of the worst for the whole world???? BISES, Anita

Erin said...

All great colors Michelle, I would be hard pressed to pick one as I like them all! Can't wait to see which one you picked!

A Vintage Vine said...

I'm in a bold I say Sea Spray! Let us know soon!

High Street Cottage said...

I'm thinking Shorline Mist? The name is fantastic. Can't wait to see Michelle. Somehow I missed your post about the puff flowers. I did see a new link but when I clicked it it went to page error, I'll have to check your archives. xoxo tami

High Street Cottage said...

Oh By the way, I love the new header!!!

Drawn to The Sea said...

All beautiful choices, Michelle. Depends on the light, your accessories, etc. I'm content waiting to be surprised :-)

Deborah said...

Hi hunny...I'm going to guess Sea Spray, and if thats not the right second guess would be Tropical Surf, and if thats not right I'm going to guess...well you know lol
I love them all though..all such beachy shades..
You're just so full of creative energy!!
You've got me wanting to do my bedroom again sooner than later now! :)
Hahahah you're hubbys funny!
I think alot of our hubbys would have to agree with him on that...could you just see all our family members coming in the room, one by one and saying how we need help?! lol
Well I'm off to visit some of these ladies you've talked so sweetly about here...bye for now sweetie!!!

All my love,
Deborah xoxoxoxoxoxo

Sorta Fairytale Girl said...

how can you choose between those 3 beautiful colors?! Tropical Surf seems like a happy medium between them all...perhaps that's why it is in the middle ;)
Happy Painting...looking forward to seeing the results!!

Jenni said...

All three colors are so pretty! I am going to guess you chose Tropical Surf? Just guessing, of course! :)

I hope you have a good night!

Polly said...

No matter which you chose, it's going to be lovely! All such pretty vibrant beachy colors!

Hope you have a great weekend!


Cathy M~(checkitoff) said...

Stunned by your beautiful blog header! Love your new font! and so surprised and humbled that you mentioned me, Michelle, too sweet! Have a super weekend! hugs, Cathy

Carrie @ Dittle Dattle said...

You may need help, Michelle! but then so would I! I love to paint!!! Can't wait to see what color you did pick out.

Marie said...

OMG Michelle! My jaw dropped looking at your daughter's new beachy look bedroom. I love love love it! Haven't been around and now just catching up. You're so good at this look! She's very lucky, does she like it a lot?

Kelle Dame said...

I've been painting up a storm too! What got me started was a hole we patched in our powder room (removed the toilet paper holder) and then discovered we didn't have any of the original paint left! Doy! Then my hubby put in new lights in the family room and let me tell is everything! I hate what the lighting does to the paint color! I was happier in the dark! So now after I've tried every light bulb out's time to paint AGAIN!
I guess the good thing is that I'm getting better at it.
Can't wait to see this paint color! All three are beautiful and soothing.
Have a great weekend!

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

All the names sound really good, haha! I don't think I ever bought a color that didn't have a sea related name. And I'm sooooooo curious!!!!
Have a great and warm weekend!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

GOOD EVENING MICHELLE! It is finally Friday and I am so happy....tired, but so happy because I am going to play with my new rooms tomorrow! I am going to try to make a rough draft of my next post, but my eyes are failing me! THANK YOU PRECIOUS FOR YOUR VISIT TODAY! We actually had great weather today! No snow, and the temps warranted a second recess for the kids in beautiful 35 ABOVE zero temps!!!!


Brandi said...

Ahh pretty colors! They are beautiful, but my guess would be that you chose Sea Spray! Your room is gonna be so pretty, I can just tell.

Thank you for the kind words Michelle! You are so very, very sweet!

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

I'm guessing Tropical Surf.

Linda said...

I'm loving that Shore Mist...but I'm sure whichever you chose will look great and I can't wait until you share.

Laura said...

Hi Michelle,dear!Such a lovely surprise reading your comment on my blog! I adore Tropical Surf, I think it's so bright! I am. A Pa too! I paint and re-paint evrything!gosh!

Rene said...

Yes, let's join painter's anonymous together Michelle. With out extensive resumes we could move right up to president in not time, tee-hee. Can't wait to see what you are up to.


Carmie of the Single Nester said...

Girl, I painted my guest bedroom - aka Cape Cod room - Seaspray!! What a coinky dinky.

Kindra-At Home With K said...

I can't decide what you're going to choose. I'll go with the shoreline mist since you want to "lighten" it up a little. Can't wait to see the results. Then afterward swing on by my house...since you're so paint happy. LOL
