I am taking an online Algebra class this semester and it has been big trouble just trying to configure my computer to run the program. Sheesh! Also, who knew graphing calculators were so expensive?
I also have two design clients I am trying to finish up this week as well as my own two projects and have run out of time. So I am re running a favorite post from last year. This will buy me a few days to finish up a historical post I am currently researching, as well as put the finishing touches on next week's Friday Freebie. I think you will "love" it.
I first saw pale blue porch ceilings in Savannah and later in Charleston.
I was a delighted to see the blue ceilings again in Key West last week.
I have been told a number of reasons why the light blue color is used.
~Wasps and other insects will not nest in an area they think is the sky.
~Blue paint reflects more light and the front rooms of a house painted as such will appear brighter.
~Blue chases away evil spirits. (Haint blue is a popular shade in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.)
Whatever the reason, I just love it. So cool and calming. When I wanted to paint our back patio porch cover a tranquil blue last summer Mr. Decor said "No." It had something to do with the fact we live in the desert. Someday...
I loved the pale pink and aqua combination of this home, but could do without the cars in front. I was reminded that people do actually live in the homes and have a right to park. But it WOULD be so much better if they drove buggies.
I so wanted to see the inside of this church but alas, it was closed.
Is there anyone else out there who wears rose colored glasses and desires to take up a scraper and return this home to its former glory?
Sadly, this is what's available in our price range.
Luckily, dreams are free.
