The Color I Chose for My Front Doors.

Hi all,  I hope you had a great Memorial Day. Several weeks ago I did a post on Front Door Inspiration. You can see it here. And at that time I was trying to decide what color I wanted to paint my front doors. Well the jury is in and the color I chose was.......

sorry fuzzy pic
 Oriental Eggplant by Behr. You can see it here. I love, love, love the color. This shot was taken about 5 minutes or so after I finished painting. And shortly after that it started to rain, and it rained most of the night. I guess I don't have to tell you what happened to my amazingly beautiful, professional looking paint job! It was ruined, and I was devastated. Now I would have to repaint the doors all over again. That incident took the wind right out of my sails and until now, I really haven't had the motivation to finish the project. But a few days ago I mustered up some spizzerinctum and made a conscience decision to complete this project. I asked Hubby to sand the doors. And later this week I will repaint them, add wreaths, spruce up the area a bit; and voila, I will be back in business before summer.

Have you had any projects that went haywire recently?

Memorial Day Tribute

Hello everyone, today is Memorial Day and this post is to pay tribute to all who gave their lives while serving our country. A few months ago Mandy Lou and I traveled to Honolulu. And while their we visited the Pearl Harbor Memorial. And it is a must see if you ever visit Hawaii. Below are a few  pics taken while there.

 You can read about Pearl Harbor here.

The shrine inside the memorial pays tribute to the men who lost their lives in battle.

 

This picture was taken at the entrance of  the USS Missouri
To all the men and women who have lost their lives protecting our borders, we SALUTE and HONOR YOU!
Because of YOU our Flags still wave. Long may it wave!
